Pours dark mahogany brown, almost black. Not much head. Aroma is feather like an oatmeal stout - sweetish burnt malts, a bit of dark chocolate. Taste is also full of roasted malts, relatively full body with velvety texture. Feels more like a stout for me, if it wasn’t written on the bottle would never associate this with saison (or dark saison, whatever it is). Anyhow, what I have in my glass is truly enjoyable and tastes great. Aftertaste is lingering, bit of liquorice and dark fruits adding a touch of acidity.

This beer is a dark mahogany color with a medium beige head that recedes steadily to a film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of berries, roast malt and yeast. Medium-bodied with flavors of floral yeast, semi-tart berries and malt. The finish is roasty malt and herbal yeast. Above average overall.

ads135 (3564) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - JUN 9, 2015
Dark appearance with a thick, light tan head. Aromas dominated by the Belgian spicy yeast, and the flavor is apricot, plum, and sugar with a biting aftertaste.

shoulderbroken (2850) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle. Interesting. Aroma is roasty, almost stout like, caramel, light spice and a little fruity. Burnt sugar sweetness is at the front of the taste and dominates. Finish is dark fruit. Middle is a bit tricky, I’m saying floral, but clearly being swayed by the beer description. Full bodied for a saison. Pretty nice.

Aniela (4156) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2015
Bottle at home. Clear deep amber beer with a beige head. Roasted, spicy floral aroma. Spicy herbal floral flavour with some licorice hints. A bit strange saison.
