3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap as 8.3% with 43 IBU. I dont think this is a proper saison, more of a strong alt. If it is a saison, it’s the most unique saison I ever did have. Amber in color. Pretty malty aroma, with biscuity caramel and some funky orange citrus. Taste was toffee, some citrus, and some brown sugar. Pretty medium bodied for such a high ABV. Dry ripe fruits on he finish.

On tap at Strange. Pours with a hazed golden hued body and a lasting white head. Aromas are spicy (phenols) with quite a few esters (notably apple). A rich saison yeast character. Flavors are medium bitter, spicy, phenol, clove. Medium bubbles, dry. Really nice saison yeast flavors (seemed Dupont-esque).
I liked this quite a bit more than the Patience Saison.
