Very good as a standalone saison -- plenty of heft, malt and yeast. A little hot for saison, however. The alcohol is rough, it detracts from the balance of the beer, and although I enjoyed the aromas and flavors of the beer very much, it left a little to be desired in terms of the soft touch that can make saison really rustic and great.

superspak (3406) - Michigan, USA - MAY 18, 2015
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 5/31/2016. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big lemon, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, peppercorn, clove, wheat, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, light pine, and yeast/spice earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste if big lemon, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, peppercorn, clove, wheat, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, pine, and yeast/spice earthiness. Good amount of peppercorn/yeast spiciness and light tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, white grape, peppercorn, clove, wheat, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, pine, and yeast/spice earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and lightly sticky/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice spiced saison style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
