Served on tap in a tulip glass
Appearance – The beer is served a darker amber reddish color with a small off white head. The head fades rather quickly to leave some spotty lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is fruity and tart with a good level of funk. The fruity smells are mainly of a lighter fruit nature with apple, pear and some peach. Along with these aromas however is a tart and vinegary aroma with some hints of a sour cherry and yeast. Rounding out these smells is a funky haylike grassy smell producing an overall fruity and funked aroma.
Taste – The taste begins with the fruit that was detected in the nose. Apple, peach and pear flavors are complimented with a sour cherry taste and a bit of yeast. As the taste advances, some spices flavors as well as a bit of haylike funk nature. While these flavors persist to the end, the funk and sour cherry grow stronger and are accompanied by some boozy tastes. In the end, with an apple cider vinegar flavor getting more intense, a quite sour and fruity funked taste is left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel -The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is average to above average. The slightly higher carbonation is rather nice for the fruity and funky flavors of the brew creating an overall mouthfeel that is very appropriate.
Overall – A decent saison that is worth a try if you get a chance, but is likely nothing that will totally blow you out of the water.

750ml into a tulip. The cork was cocked and triggered as soon as the cage was loosened, fortunately I was prepared, no eyeballs lost. Pours a deep amber with a ruby twist, massive frothy head with a careful pour, ok lacing, hyperactive nucleation point sustains a cap.
The aroma shares all with Pays Du Soleil . . so I cut & paste
Aroma is a mosh pit of clanging scents. Sometimes a thing can smell somewhat unpleasant but you can't stop wanting to sniff, this is that. The dubbel and the saison are clearly present but it seems a forced pairing, the dubbel is slightly dominant. Nonetheless I keep returning it to my nose.
The taste too is in the vein of Pays Du Soleil except now the saison is dominant yet it retains the strong dubbel initial flavor, light figs, caramel and date. The sour does not go beyond a brief tart dry twang. Very dry lingering aftertaste. Thin bodied slightly astringent mouthfeel.
again a unique dark saison from St Somewhere

Pours a medium reddish brown with a large and fairly dark head that also has a reddish tint--head bubbles around like crazy and makes a bunch of noise, which is cool, but fades pretty quick.
Has a sharp wooden vinegary smell, some brett, some sweet red grape juice, sugar, cherries or raspberries or other fruit, mild sourness, lots going on but doesn't necessarily come together perfectly well.
Taste has a more clear sweet berry fruit character, lots of red grape juice again, some other fruit too, slightly tart but not super sour, some okay wood again, only hints of brett, more sweet than sour.
Very fizzy carbonation, medium thickness to the body other wise, good.
