Bomber. Apricot colored and hazy with a short white head. With even a vigorous pore, the fizzy head disappears within seconds.

Aroma is over-ripe fruit, funky yeast notes, soft earthiness, wet dog and light spice. OK, that does not sound very appetizing.

But the taste is much better. The funky yeast is still there, as is the earthy notes and the peppery spice. But a healthy tartness is also there from the beginning mitigating the sweetness. The other notes add complexity, but the finish is rather clean. Have been cellaring this beer almost a year, and the result is very smooth.

Body is medium heavy with a light, prickly carbonation. A very fine beer.

Poured from a 22 oz brown bomber into a clear glass snifter. No freshness date. Purchased at Wine Warehouse (Charlottesville, VA) a few months ago and refrigerated since purchase.

A: Hazy orange with short rapidly dissipating 1/2-finger off-white head with no real lacing.

S: Aroma is intensely fruity with a lot of overripe peach aroma. The light Brett earthiness is a nice complement to the fruity-peachy qualities. The hopping is minimal. Yeast esters are not really evident due to the level of fruit.

T: Not a bad tasting beer but not a saison in too many senses. It is enjoyable enough with a lot of intense peach cobbler type sweetness, with the peach fruitiness and brown sugary sweetness combining pretty well but borders on cloying. The Brett accents are nice and keep it from being runaway sweet by adding some earthy character. The maltiness is not really too much else and hops are a nonfactor. Yeast esters are mainly fruity but also background.

M: Pretty heavy, and I am not sure why they felt they had to go to 9.4% on this guy. More in the typical saison/fruit beer range of 6.5% would have left a less syrupy, cloying beer with a little more drinkability. As this one is, it is pretty heavy and the sweetness weighs on you after a while.

O: Not a bad beer but I would probably pass on buying more owing to the intense sweetness without a whole lot else modulating it except for a light dose of Brett earthiness. Decreasing this into a more drinkable body and ABV would be welcome and make this more in the mold of a saison.
