Found bombers for 3.99 - even at that price, they still have cases of the stuff sitting around - pours a hazy amber - no head - no noticeable carbonation - not really a saison - basically a Belgian strong, but with the cab barrels really taking over every aspect aside from some yeast spiciness and mild apple esters, maybe a little dark fruit maltiness - acidity is a bit potent on the tail end - not that great.

DenverLogan (866) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Had this at the Denver collaboration fest and at the Trinity saison fest. considered a Grand Cru Saison at 8%. Brewed in dedication to Danny Williams, of GABF and other associations. Pours ruby copper with minimum head and lace. Aroma of red wine, light hops, malt sweetness. Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of tropical fruit with red wine, kumquat. Overall big, bold, complex, relatively easy drinking and tasty.

arminjewell (8620) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, clear red pour with thin to no head, aroma brought notes of big caramel, spice, white fruits, red fruits, hints of wine and cab, slight oak, grapes. Taste is a mix of white fruits, lots of red fruit and red grape, hints of oak, slight wine barrel, hints of boozy notes, slight spice notes as well, finishing fairly sweet, slightly dry. Interesting, a bit disjointed and the cab barrels really take over, and add a slight ethyl booze note.

drjay44 (2966) - Salida, Colorado, USA - AUG 25, 2013
651 ml. bottle. 8.4% ABV per the label. Pours a bubbly, soda like, short lived, ivory head, over a clear dark amber (SRM 16) highly effervescent body.....nose is lightly vinous, with hints of grape, light malts, very slight hints of clove, minimal hops except slight spice....taste is slightly sweet stone fruits (grape, plum), vinous tones with hints of sherry, leading to light floral honey tones, finishing with a lightly acidic, very light hop bitterness.....mouth feel light of medium, slightly sticky, minimally astringent, alcohol warmth present, carbonation very high, but adds a clean slightly acid finish. This really is another between styles beer so beloved by craft brewers. This is not a bad beer, it just isn’t a Saison. BJCP 6/2/10/4/6

onceblind (5413) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2012
@ Falling Rock during GABF. Murky dark copper, with a dank malty aroma of earthy toffee, and soured raisins with a touch of caramel. Flavor was lightly sour with a boozy wood note of bright pale grains, Cabernet wine, hay and Belgian dusty fruity yeast. Not bad!
