Bottle from Mikkeller & Friends bottle shop. Deep gold with a pillowy white head. The nose is of apricot, citrus fruits. Light orange peel and grapefruit. Barnyard funk. Yeast. The taste is mildly spicy. Peppered pineapple and grapefruit. A bit of marshmallow. Angel food cake. Soft and pillowy mouthfeel. Not as aggressive as I thought an 8% saison would be.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Definitely a big, rich and full bodied Saison. Rich, malty, yeasty, spicy, Brûléed sugar aromas are a bit ambiguous on the nose. Though on the palate, the yeast melds into huge, tropical, ripe peach, stonefruit, pear and tons of spicy clove flavors. Good mouthfeel and complex flavors. Full bodied indeed. Not exactly refreshing, though very satisfying.. Drinks with more complexity and balance as it warms... Almost Belgium Triple-ish. In fact, this is a transition saison for those that love Triple's. Does work well with Thai food as recommended.. Though with very different flavors.
