The saison and the red wine do not blend very well IMHO. Some oaky dryness that kills the fruit you recognize underneath.
Deep golden, slightly tan foam
Aroma is raisins , dried fruits, wood and dates.
Taste is dark fruits, malty sweet

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2012 Rerate, 500 ml bottle, batch#427, will soon be available at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 6.5%. Amber to copper colour, large to moderate off-white head. Basically the same impression as from first sample. Refreshing and very drinkable , not too sweet. Original rating: Sample at Copenhagen Beer Festival. Amber colour. Aroma and flavour of saison yeast, mild spices, oak and red wine, decent hops in the finish. JanLaursen (3226) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2012 Draught at CBC. Light hazy red brown with a short but foamy beige head. Aroma is caramel, vineous, a little wood, indifferent hoppy notes. Taste is sweet, medium bitter, a little spices with some sweet-sour grapey notes. And tannins too, giving the beer a rough mouthfeel. Not much saison here, but barrels - definitely. Too sweet for my palate. Guess I am a Saison fundamentalist.... gyllenbock (9995) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2012

Dark amber with a small head. This beer was a bit strange. Not balanced with spices, yeast, wood and some sour notes. Nothing that I must drink again.
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2012 Draught at KØ12. Cloudy amber colour. Small white head. The flavour is sweet, has some sour notes. Some plastic. 5 3 5 3 13 Papsoe (25055) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2012
