Poured form the tap.
The beer was a nice, copper/red colour with good clarity. The nose was sweet with Belgian yeast, citrus hops, floral hops, and the honey was noticeable. It tasted sweet wheatiness that transitioned into a brief pepper/spiciness, and had a tangy-yeasty finish. The aftertaste was sweet and floral.
Would I buy it again? Yes.

A - orangish with a huge, dense, soft, off white head that has great retention
S - white grapes, some apple, pear, alcohol, some Belgian funk
T - pear, apple, some white grapes, very faint spice, Belgian funk, some warming alcohol in the finish, mildly bitter hop finish
M - medium to full bodied, warm, well carbonated
This is a pretty decent beer. It relies heavily on the yeasty esters, but they seem to be enough. The alcohol is fairly well masked for a bold 11.5%. This is one of the better Boulder offerings that I've had. If you're a Belgian beer fan this is probably worth a try.

22 ounce bomber
Pours a hazy copper orange color, the color of peach skin only a bit darker. There's a head early on, but it isn't impressive and doesn't stick around long.
The smell is complex with some tangy, peppery yeast, a hint of citrusy pineapple, a bit of honey and alcohol.
Grape and pepper start the taste. Pineapple makes an appearance midsip. Citrusy hop presence starts the finish while the alcohol ends it.
Full bodied. Sweet and spicy. Tangy throughout. Each sip brings more bite from the alcohol heat. Acid in the finish. Alcohol isn't over the top, but it's right at the line...after a few sips, my mouth is going numb.
A sipper. ABV is strong, a real manly beer for a saison. Nice taste and I actually like the ABV. I never picked up the honey because it's so subtle.

Served in a snifter.
A - Cloudy amber hue with a one-finger ivory head. Good lacing after average retention.
S - Pear, white grapes, booze and a pinch of honey.
T - Sticky honey and caramel sweetness, booze, floral notes and spices. The booze overpowers everything that this had going...
M- Heavy on the mouth. Viscous composition with sharp booze alongside the floral notes on the finish. Not very good.
O - This is a big beer that I would not return to. Interesting idea, but way off balance for any Saison or BSPA I would keep in my fridge. Over half the bomber got poured down my drain.
