**Reviewed before realizing the actual style classification on BA. Adjusted scores to style after the fact.
Hazy amber with some red in it. Frothy topper leaves some lacing. Looks rich for a saison.
Familiar aromas of farmhouse yeast, honey, green apple, toasted malts, rooibos, and light pepper. Not bad.
Big yeast and alcohol notes trailblaze with strength, nuttiness, and pomme fruits. Darker notes of honey and raisin enter, making this one burly saison. Borderline quad in flavor. Peppery spice and root vegetable flutters in the finish. Tea-like hops have flavor and bitterness that come in the middle-to-end. As it warms, it becomes almost like a BSPA with more apple-pear-cherry-golden raisin character. Interesting.
Massive for a saison. Booze is... well, we're dialed up to 11.5% here. Body is thicker than just medium. And, sticky, too. Carbonation wants to fall away in the feel.
Just too much for what I want in a saison. Not disappointing. Just a different kind of Belgian ale.

Reviewed from notes on April 9th that I'm finally getting to.
On Tap at House of 1000 Beers
A - Pours a hazy copper two fingers of head, fades fast, nice lacing.
S - Very tart aroma, some sweet malt, mild dank hop aroma, citrus and honey blend.
T - Tart flavor, some bitterness from the hops, some alcohol flavor and biscuit malt.
M - As it warms up the malt gets overwhelming along with the alcohol.
O - Not bad, but the tartness and alcohol get to me overpowering as you go on.
