3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from 2008. Pours a dark amber color with a tall tan head that is rocky in nature. There is an interesting fruitiness to the nose that is lightly tart as well. Some red apples, floral notes, spices, yeast, and bready malts are all present on the nose. The flavor is quite similar, but there is a distinct alcohol note, especially on the back end. Otherwise there are good fruit, spice, and yeast flavors to the beer. Medium to full bodied for a saison with a rather high carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle on the train to Brussels for Paul’s Pre-Wedding Boys n Beers Weekend of Fun. This beer pours a cloudy, ruby-brown with a small, white head. There’s some definite ripe and slightly tangy fruit in the aroma. Also some raisins and caramel. The flavor is very sweet, with lots of caramel, bread, dry fruit, leather, toast and ripe citrus. Full in body with fine carbonation. Warm finish with leathery ripe fruits, light earthy bitterness and toasty malts. There is certainly some apparent age on this beer (I’ve had it for two+ years) but it’s very nice with some interesting character.
