22oz bottle. The label grabbed my attention, we share a name. After u got the bottle home, it crushed me. I remember reading the story. I live in the eastern time zone. I read about the tragic event at the brewery. I remembered how horrible the story was.
Orange color. Aroma of pale grain, yeast, smoked wood, and distant apple. Thick, heavy bodied. Strong too. Flavor is dry, sharp bitterness, pale malts, long lasting fruity esters. Lingering bitterness in the palate, fruit esters stick around for a while. Hints of smoked malt in the finish as well. Whoa, that?s a big Saison! (3969)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy golden honey color with a small white head. Lots of really nice spice and subtle wood on the nose, a hint of smoke, fruity esters, and that typical saison funk. Delicious beer. A nice meaty smoky flavor up front, banana and clove, a bit of that burnt wood comes through, a nice amount of spice, and a hint of alcohol. Really nice beer, especially for this cold, snowy, icy day.
