3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Unclear dark golden with an off-white head. The aroma sweet with notes of yeast, over ripe fruits, malt, and spices. The flavor is sweet with notes of over ripe fruits, vegetables, lightly tart and dry finish. More like a imperial Biere de Garde, not that exciting.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy and amber. Funky nose with deep fruit (apple, pear) and some light clove. There’s also a mac & cheese note in the aroma, which makes no sense at all. Herbal, berryish (blueberry, boysenberry), funky light foot, alcohol, rich caramel, and spice...lots of stuff going on here. For all its complexity, though, it really is not very cohesive.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of malt, flowers, peach(?), spice. Ruby apricot color with tiny bubbles and a vigorous beige head that laced somewhat. Starts a bit brettomyces? Grass and herb are present. Some sweetness to go with the unusual tartness. Medium mouthfeel. Fairly dry once it settles down. Not getting much bitterness in the finish, just that unusual character. I can see why Matta suggested Wintergreen, but I don’t think that’s it. Interestingly different.

Bottle. [thank you, after4ever]
Pours dark amber, micro-floaties, small creamy, off-white head. Great lacings. Aroma has notes of cheese, red apples, caramel, some funk; almost like a french cider. Great, super-dry mouthfeel. Flavour has a lot of maltiness, light cellar-notes, red apples. Caramel, oranges, light funk, some brett creeps up. Well, also a little chocolate.

750 ml bottle poured a clear deep reddish brown with beautiful creamy lasting amber head. Aromas of spices, banana, malt, teast and some herbal notes. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of malt, spice, cheries, a hint of banana, yeast and a bit of herbs with a lingering lightly sweet finish. A complex and interesting Saison.
