A faily complex beer that presents a considerable number of unique characteristics. While all of the different pieces to this puzzle are interesting in their own right, the final result was a little exciting that I had hoped. Nevertheless, a fairly decent, albeit obscure brew. I've yet to see this one sold in any style different than that of the white capped, 250ml bottle at 5%. Because of the limited quantity of this brew, I tasted it from the small Chimay goblet which filled up nicely 1-1/2 times. Pours a deep amber hued brown color with a big, rocky off-white head. Lacing on the glass is extensive and the head itself never really lowered itself much less than 1/8" inch. Surface bubbles were extensive and quite large. An exceptionally dark brew which tended to be more brown than the deep amber color most have written about in the past. Very murky, almost like a deep brown Hefeweizen, yet lacks any significant amount of sediment. Aroma wise it is a reminscent a many other complex Belgian brews but has a unique sweet and sour hit to it that isn't found in many other styles. Additionally, strong scents of aged fruit (ala Christmas cake), and some level of tartness are all detected. Although intended as a summer drink, I'm taking in this one in the heart of winter -- albeit one influenced heavily by El Nino. Taste wise, this is a complex brew that has more sourness in it that expected. Definitely sweet at the same time with hints of caramel, fruit, and even a bit of toastiness. Strangely enough, this one reminded me a lot of Liefman's Goudenband and the Oudenaarde style of brown ales. Aftertaste is complex and very long, with the aftertaste hitting heavy like oils from a freshly smoked piece of Sockeye Salmon. Don't get me wrong, this is good stuff, but that aftertaste is definitely unique.

This must be a caramel turned into beer. Aroma was weak but tested a bit late after opening the bottle. Taste is strong and not to sugary.

Low carbonation. Sweet and caramelized. To sweet for me. Not great but still drinkable.

От сайзона вообще ничего, ни аромата ни вкуса, пьётся соверше& как тёмная водичка.

Bire de belle couleur ambre mousse raisonnable. Nez : caramel, fruits comme la prune. Bouche : pas dsagrable mais le sucre domine bien que soit peru des armes de caramel et les pices. Je ne connais pas trop les "saisons" mais celle-ci est trs loin de la saison Dupont.

scarletfire65 (1346) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2016
Bottle at home. Amber - brown pour. The aroma is sweet grains, raisins, sugary breakfast cereal. The flavor is of a poorly made brown ale. Lightly toasted malts, sugar, caramel, grassy hops. Not a saison at all. Barely any yeast character.

ndburns (185) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2016
330ml bottle at the Sandford Park Alehouse. Pours a dark copper with a medium white head. Toffee and summer fruit aroma, and similar taste, sweet with some unusual bitterness, a little sour. Not much like any Saison Ive had before.

Cristobal37 (848) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 24, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2016 Hazy brown, no head. Sweet syruppy malt aroma. Bad start. Nearly zero taste, just faint corn flakes. Watery. Horrible, don?t buy it ever. Bad syruppy garbage, not a saison, but a bad amateur garage beer.

Bottle at home, 09/09/16. Bought from Savieur Biere (spelling??). Slight yeasty\boozy aroma. Treacle toffee brown. Some whisps of head. Sweet. Yeasty. Sugary. Raisens. Medium bodied. Slightly carbonated. Sour finish - pleasant mouthfeel, tingles on the tongue. I like it but slightly torn - is it a tad too sweet/sickly. Reminds me of Finnish kotikalja, a homemade non alcoholic malt drink.
