3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased in Whitefish Montana. 2008 vintage. Pours dark orange, almost copper. Off white head. The aroma is one funky bitch. Grape skin, green apple, plum, cherries, spice, and a hint of malt vinegar on the nose. The flavor is not as funky as the nose lets on. Dark fruits, berry skin, ripe cherries, and a funky acidic finish. Quite nice.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The color was hazy deep amber brown. The head was foamy, off-white, and creamy. The aroma was very spicy, sweet, some hops, and malty. The flavor was spice, jello, dark fuit, and raisin. The palate was medium-bodied. The finish was warm and spicy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Red brown pour with a foamy beige head. Aromas of candy sugar and pepper. Taste is primarily yeast with some sugars and a dry apple finish. Tastes more like a double than a saison.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Courtesy of beerlando...thanks Bryan. Murky amber color with a massive rocky tan head. Pleasant bready malts, belgian yeast, spiced citrus notes in the nose with hints of clove. Very quaffable, heavily carbonated mouth feel...flavor consists of some biscuity malts, clove and bananas. Very good stuff.

bottle. Typically avoid the Belgian styles as they’re not my favorite, but this was quite good. Very complex

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Caramel brown....big, fluffy head. Aroma is funky....and fruity. The flavor is dark fruit followed by a nice sour bite. Great mouthfeel.....crisp, but full. My only complaint is the alcohol presence. A few years in a cellar would be nice.

Cloudy orange unsettled look. Small head and no lacing. Smells like fingernail polish. Doesn’t taste as bad, but wouldn’t try it again.

Tampa RB Gathering Beer #5....pours a caramel brown body with a small, lasting dirty white head....nose of candied sugar, yeast, plums, malts and dark fruits....flavor very much the same, nicely done balance between the very sweet sugars and the balancing malts....medium bodied, sweet on the palate....medium finish....good stuff, the Saison is better
