It pours a deep amber with an enormous frothy head. The lace spiderwebs down the glass. Smells strongly of fruity malt with a faint alcohol. Red apple, pear and ripe cherry flavors evident in the aroma too. Immensely sweet and fruity. Spiced apple, hints of pear and date. Sweet and sticky but surprisingly drinkable for such a big beer. Sweet spice in the finish. Very nice.

Purchased in Whitefish Montana. 2008 vintage. Pours dark orange, almost copper. Off white head. The aroma is one funky bitch. Grape skin, green apple, plum, cherries, spice, and a hint of malt vinegar on the nose. The flavor is not as funky as the nose lets on. Dark fruits, berry skin, ripe cherries, and a funky acidic finish. Quite nice.

Cloudy orange unsettled look. Small head and no lacing. Smells like fingernail polish. Doesnt taste as bad, but wouldnt try it again.

aubreya (676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUL 20, 2008
The color was hazy deep amber brown. The head was foamy, off-white, and creamy. The aroma was very spicy, sweet, some hops, and malty. The flavor was spice, jello, dark fuit, and raisin. The palate was medium-bodied. The finish was warm and spicy.

Red brown pour with a foamy beige head. Aromas of candy sugar and pepper. Taste is primarily yeast with some sugars and a dry apple finish. Tastes more like a double than a saison.

Bottle from Iowaherkeye - thanks Joey. Sweet apple and honey aromas with some roasted scents. Caramel brown with a flat head. Dry roasted malt, light caramel, apple juice, fruit cake, and a light spiciness. Creamy and somewhat flat with a light dryish finish. Good.

Bottle: Courtesy of beerlando...thanks Bryan. Murky amber color with a massive rocky tan head. Pleasant bready malts, belgian yeast, spiced citrus notes in the nose with hints of clove. Very quaffable, heavily carbonated mouth feel...flavor consists of some biscuity malts, clove and bananas. Very good stuff.

Caramel brown....big, fluffy head. Aroma is funky....and fruity. The flavor is dark fruit followed by a nice sour bite. Great mouthfeel.....crisp, but full. My only complaint is the alcohol presence. A few years in a cellar would be nice.
