Pours a reddish-brown colour; bit darker than I expected but appealing. Slightly cloudy, with creamy beige head of decent thickness. Good.

Smells sweet and spicy with a hint of Belgian funk. Anise, clove and a hint of banana on there. Loads of character nicely handled. Again, very appealing.

Palate is all fruit and spice; lacking a little of that organic funk which may have complemented this all really nicely. Bit sweet, with lots of star anise, some clove, nutmeg, banana and a hint of ginger. Could use a few more Belgian esters in there as it's mostly spice. I like it, but I've had quite a few from Mountain Goat like this, and would have liked more invention.

Quite dry texture, little bitty but goes down fairly well.

Aussie-spice-style Belgian brew. I like what they've done here, but I can't silence that whingey little bastard inside me that thinks they could have done more.

A "spiced red saison", tried on-tap at the Great Australiasian Beer Spectapular in Melbourne.

Pours a deep brown-amber hue with a partially hazy but very lightweight body. Head is slightly off-white forming a solid, full ring of foam. Colour is magnificent, and overall it looks like a really solid brew.

Nose is spicy and peppery with fragrant earthy notes of prostanthera and aniseed backed up by a rather off-kilter bubblegum aroma. Quite direct, if spiky. Pretty decent.

Taste is composed of similar characteristics—on the front there's a shock of spicy, herbal and peppery characters, while the bubblegum and yeast notes fill up the back, with a dry lingering medicinal finish. Feels a little flat overall, and the finish is a disappointment.

Overall, a decent brew. It's flavoursome, not overwhelming, if a little bit of a misfired experiment.

Clear mahogany colour with a creamy tan head. Decent head retention.

Tons of banana and a little spice. Some nice sweetness in the background but it is a little cloying.

Quite herbal with a ton of malt. Some banana and clove but the herbal notes are massive.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Okay.

A decent little beer but the herbal notes are too strong for my taste.
