Bottle. Poured with a finger high head. Smell reveals a heavily spiced beer. Initial taste was interesting, hints of nutmeg and cinnamon, with a malty finish. Decent lacing. Excellent spiced beer if you’re into interesting flavors.

Shared with the wife. Pours a beautiful golden orange. Aroma is classic Sasion with nice tropical fruit and a hint of mint. Taste is great. Nice tropical flavor with classic Sasion. It’s very refreshing. I wish I had more.

Deep rich delicious golden Belgian very reminiscent of the Stone 040404. No banana but still the excellent Belgian tripple yeast, and instead of lime leaf you get a more mild broader fruity mix. Less coriander, but the mix of ginger and cardamom gives a similar sweetness.
I previously said the Stone 040404 was the best beer I ever had, I think the Stone 070707 just beat it. Its going to be hard to resist drinking these.

A little unbalanced with it being sweet and spicy. It almost pulls it off but there is just something missing. Overall it is a good beer but it could be slightly better.

Wow, almost like a hoopy belgian Tripel. I had a hard time drinking this beer, almost a buttery taste somewhere hidden in there. Very odd indeed, this will be a nifty little treat to taste in a few yearsI think, as I think this will be more like a THA.

sweet smelling. you can definitely smell the malt. Light amber color with a thin head. Hints of hops. The yeast and citrus flavors are overpowered by the abundant malt. aftertaste slightly dry. Malt is all over the place. Decent, certainly not what i expected. Will buy a bottle and drink in a year or so.

Pale golden beer with a thin head that reduces quickly to thin film. The aroma promises a good beer but that first taste is a big disappointment, but then I have never been a big fan of Saison’s. I will say that after finishing about half of the bottle I was able to start distinguishing the different flavors but by the time I was done my overall impression wasn’t that great (rotten banannas). This is probably the first selection I have had from this brewery that I did not like.

This big belgian style beer is fantastic. It reminds me a little of a wit beer, but also of a bock. I feel like they captured the essence of the syle without mimicking any one variety. A beautiful beer. Truly epic

You can smell the spices and taste them. Very complex flavor with a crisp finish. Gold in color and sweet. Will have to age to taste at its peak
