Tried at the Festival. Amber appearance with medium sized off white head. Notes are predominantly plum sugar, bread, and other sweet malting. Didn’t get any hops in this one, mostly boring English stuff. wlajwl (7075) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Aroma is caramel, liqueur, mild spices and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is caramel/caramel liqueur, Belgian yeast, mild fruit and and a malty/very slightly alcohol finish. superspak (6015) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - OCT 11, 2015
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 8/2015. Pours slightly hazy orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, orange, pear, apple, light banana, pepper, clove, wheat, toasted oats, spicy rye bread, wood, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big lemon, orange, pear, apple, light banana, pepper, clove, wheat, toasted oats, spicy rye bread, wood, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Moderate amount of earthy bitterness and yeast/rye spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange, pear, apple, light banana, pepper, clove, wheat, toasted oats, spicy rye bread, wood, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Moderate amount of dryness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp/sticky, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome and unique saison style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering. beerbaaron (2046) - Arizona, USA - OCT 10, 2015
Draft. Unclear deep amber. Sticky off white head. Banana. Bubblegum. Peppery. Dry. Mild earthy bitter. Different than the usual ’American saisons’ I’ve had lately. Solid beer but not quite my thing.
