Bottle from Gator Bev. Pours cloudy gold with a one finger white head. Aroma of honey, Belgian yeastyness, I assume agave nectar, hint of vanilla. Not much bourbon here. Flavor is big sweet honey up front (agave nectar?), some yeasty esters, banana, pear, light spice, vanilla, and finishing with a big burn of bourbon booze. Very sweet. Medium plus bodied with medium carbonation. Not what I was expecting here. It’s no terrible, but don’t think I can get through the whole bottle alone. Like an insanely boozy saison.
