This beer just showed up in the stores around me so I'm not sure why it is marked as retired.
A - This looks like very much like a hazy apple cider.
S - And it smells like apple cider too. A deep sniff suggests some spicy pepper.
T - My first sip made me think of tart apples. I don't get oranges, and just a little bite from the peppercorn.
M - Medium body, flavor leaves quickly.
O - I'm not suggesting this tastes like apple cider. This is definitely a saison with an apple flavoring to it. It's very drinkable - this bottle went down quickly - and it's a very tasty brew. Try it you will like it.
