One of three bottles to reach Colorado. Thanks, Randy. I love this stuff. Spicy & fruity, I think the rye blends in smoothly. A lot of pepper and dry rye followed by juicy malts and light fruit. Send more!

750 cc from Pottstown location. Pours turbid dark straw toward orange with 1-finger white head and spare carbonation. Nose is big rye malt notes, hopcitrus, bready, funky, spicy. Tastes incredible: a nice medley of rye malt, spicy floral funky notes, fruity notes, white pepper, and a juicy spicy finish. This one is great., and comes off like a Belgian Tripel with added rye. Wonderful.

Bottle from the NHC Pours a relatively clear dark straw color with a huge fluffy white head that persists forever. The aroma is quite spicy with the tart rye malt mixing it up with the peppery yeast esters. Light sweet honey malts provide a hint of backbone with a few fleeting whiffs of orange and citrus fruits. The flavor is lightly sweet honey and sugary malts up front with a bit of and orange and lemon zest thing going on. Peppered rye bread comes in next and dominates the palette before a long lingering sweet and tart finish. Medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a bubbly mouthfeel. Pretty nice saison, I actually think its improved a bit since I had it at the NHC, the rye was quite assertive then and now it seems to made mingled quite nicely.

Bottle, care of the Boss. Pours light lemonade yellow with a fluffy white head. Aroma of buttered corn, hay, and a touch of honey and aged copper penny. Tastes very buttery and slightly sweet, with a touch of odd perfumey esters and hint of copper in the finish. Decent beer, not bad by any means, but really not my thing. Reminded me of a far lesser tasting Allagash Curieux, aged on corn cobs and pennies. Glad to have tried it, though.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2013 Bottle, pours yellow with white head. Aroma funk, florals, lemon, lime, Flavors earthy and florals, lemony, lime, medium body, body is a bit big touch too sweet, probably could have gotten a few more points out of this and that could have made a huge difference. overall I like the yeast character but it needs to finish drier and that would probably clean up the middle part.

Hazy golden color with a large white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of rye bread, citrus, spices, honey, and toasted dough. Taste of sweeter rye notes, spices, grass, light citrus, and a sweeter finish. Really nice, but the rye just made it a bit too sweet for me.
