Thanks to Ktrillionaire, good meeting him at DLD too.
Wow, really dig this.
Solid thick cap over a tangerine colored body that has some yeast cloudyness to it. Some styles i dont want cloudy, but Saisons are an exception. This makes me want to dive in...also because the aroma has already attacked.
The aroma has much more funk then i was expecting,unfortunantly the last few saisons i've had didn't have that character and i almost forget how great saisons with it are. There is light fruit on the nose, more like apples. The aroma, like the appearance, makes me anticipate this even more.
There it is, big juicy guava with an underlaying funky layer, what a unique saison. crisp carbination create a dry tart mouthfeel.
Man, I don't know if i have had a better Saison brewed in america, this is excellent. Even from all worldwide versions i think this demands a seat at the best of table.

Trader tells me this is an 09 bottle "back when it used to be good."
A- Hazy honey, with 1/4 finger white cloud head. Very low retention.
S- Best category here. Smells of some passionfruit, not sure if I can pinpoint it to guava considering I live in Colorado. The "malt" beverage follows... ugh. Not a fan of malt beverage.
T- That being said; the passionfruit was the best thing to add to this malt beverage base. I couldn't imagine not drainpour w/o guava. It has the traditional malt beverage taste.
M- A bit much carb for me; kinda harsh. Kinda creamy, kinda smooth. Nothing exceptional.
O- If I had another, I would find someone who likes the style and give it to them.
