This had the color of a San Diego sunset with a combination of orange and yellow. The head was reminiscent of a wisp of white clouds in that sunset.

The aroma is a little watery but has some Apple, pear, and peppery spice. Clove, yeast, and an airy lemon end the nose.

All I get is cloves on the tongue as it has a peppery, spicey, clovey yeast flavor. I got very little else; No Apple, no pear no fruity flavor at all.

The feel is dry, a touch spicy and a little more carbonated than usual.

I feel like this is a personal palate issue as all I get is clove and that seems to be one of the least desirable flavors in a Saison.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: pours a hazy orange color with a wispy head that settles to some large bubbles that stick to the sides of the glass. No lacing.

Smell: fruits, spice, and some woodiness is very pleasant on nose.

Taste: thick malt presence, a mellow wood and earthiness, green grapes, honey, green apples, coriander, cracked pepper, lemon zest, and a decent bitterness. Alcohol is noticeable and warming.

Mouthfeel: medium-heavy in body. Lightly crisp to start, smooth and almost velvety at the finish. Long lasting aftertaste.

Overall: an interesting slow sipping beer. Full of flavor that has a battle of sweetness, spice, and woodiness that works. Not as refreshing as the alcohol level is quite high, but definitely worthy of a try.

A - Golden yellow with a red hue, no head, but very pretty
S - Could smell the cherry better than I could taste, smelled of cherry alcohol
T - Initial cherry wood flavor, but a vomit-like finish, not very enjoyable
M - The faster I drank it, the better it tasted, as it wouldn't linger on my palate as long. Could taste a little floral and cherry blossom to it, but again, just reminded me of vomit towards the back of my tongue.
O - I wouldn't drink this beer again. RIP Matt C, but I think if he would have lived long enough to try the finished product, he would have made some adjustments. Or maybe he just liked beer that tasted like this. Too much imperial, and not nearly enough cherry.
