4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
THOUGHTS: Way too strong for the style, but still fairly true to the flavor and aromas of the style. It might age nicely. The grapefruit became quite intense once the yeast was added to the glass.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a medium to dark, somewhat brownish, orange that almost glowed and had beautiful carbonation bubbles that increase in size as they rise. It also had a small, ever so slightly off-white head that mostly lasted and left excellent lacing. The aroma had heavy light bread, pale malt and candy sugar; heavy spicy and earthy yeast; slightly funky yeast; light pepper; and citrus rind that increased as it warmed. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly bitter; while the finish was heavily sweet, moderately bitter and acidic, and ever so slightly sour with a fairly long duration. There was pale malts, citrus, light bread, pepper, lots of spicy yeast, earthy yeast, slightly funky yeast, candy sugar, alcohol and more citrus. The medium to full body was a bit oily and syrupy with slightly fizzy carbonation and a moderately alcoholic finish.
Pours a cloudy golden yellow with fluffy head. Aromas of light funk, wine notes, and grass/hay qualities. Flavors of berry like sourness and hints of wine. Some yeasty notes on the finish. katrinaez (2148) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2015
Holy flavors batman. Sugars, fruits, grassy, blossoms and small hops. Hazy deep yellow. Really easy to drink. Bottle Beerdedone (3432) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, yeast, lemon and light fruit. Flavor of citrus zest, lemon, orange, grapefruit rind, yeast, pepper and had some subtle spices. Chudwick (3277) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Expectation: So far Weyerbacher has impressed me, but the style has been hit or miss. Darkmagus82 (2302) - - JUL 25, 2014
Hardware: 12oz bottle into Le Duvel.
Nose: wildflower, lush fields, citrus peel, black pepper, and grass
Sip: booze, caramel, slight nuttiness (from age?),
Taste: sweeter than the style usually is but that’s probably due to the high ABV
Misc: dry to the lips but cloys in the throat. Slight grapefruit aftertaste
Conclusion: a strong beer with lots of aroma but taste dominated by the sweetness. Quality all around but this is too aggressive.

Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance – It was served a light orange color with a tiny white head. The head disappeared quickly leaving almost no lacing.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of sweet citrus. Notes of orange, tangerine and a sweeter lemon are all there. Mixed with this is a lighter aroma of grapefruit as well as a good Belgian yeasty and spice aroma. As expected for a 10.5 % abv brew, there is also a light presence of an alcohol aroma as well.
Taste – The taste begins with the fruit sweetness. The fruit is of banana, orange, and some lemon. These flavors are mixed with a yeasty flavor right up front. As the taste moves on some of the spicy flavors come to the tongue, with a decent presence of pepper and clove. The alcohol that was detected in the nose then hits the scene. It starts out weaker, but as the taste goes on it a bit stronger, but never comes to a very potent taste. In the light alcohol mixed with the spiced fruit flavors leaves a sweet warming feel on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the thicker side with a carbonation level that is just below average. Both suit the fruity and spiced flavors of the beer quite well.
Overall – At 10.5 % this was a very easy to drink and pleasant brew. A very nice saison if I would say.

Bottle. Pours a slightly clouded golden yellow color with a minimal head. Good bit of floating sediment dispersed throughout. Aroma is spiced and sweet. Flavor is sweet and peppery up front with orange and grapefruit zest and slight bitterness on the tail end. Some warming from the high alcohol, but overall fairly well hidden.

A lot going on with this beer. Super cloudy yellow/gold pour with next to no head. Spice of pepper, slight funk of saison yeast, orange zesty in nose and flavor. Unique alcohol warmth for a saison, but fun. Nice twist on the style. fonefan (50028) - VestJylland, DENMARK - APR 28, 2014
