4.04/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Bottle purchased in a mixed sixer from Beer Temple, Chicago, IL

Poured into a sam Adams tulip

A- cloudy dark amber, visible rising bubbles, one finger heat that shakes your hand and says ”hows it going”

S- fruity, yeasty, the mandarins orange is prominent. Spice, more fruit, orange peel, black tea

T- juicy front almost like a mimosa, sweetness relieves and gives way to alcohol and citric acidity, Not as much spiciness as I'd expect, but there is something peppery to the warmth that isn't just alcohol. very nice

M- considerably light but it suits the overall fruitiness. A nice effervescent sparkle along with some varying warming aspects

O- this has been on my bucket list for a minute now. I'm happy to have given it a whirl. Definitely a step up from Brux, not the best sierra Nevada collab ever, worth a try. There's enough character here to justify it, despite the increase in releases of the saison style.

3.76/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

A: Copper filtered with a lot of carbonation and 2 fingers of off white yellowish head.

S: Fruity orange and spice, black pepper, Belgian yeasts, funkiness, butter, licorice.

T: Light orange creamsicle, a Belgian yeast quality, nail polish remover, some sweet corn on the end.

M: Thin body, lots of foamy carbonation leaving it creamy.

O: Some nice light summery fruity orange qualities, refreshing and light on the palate. Drank July 21, 2014, in Boca Raton. Got in North Carolina.
