Notes/Commercial Description:
Brewed with good friend, Urbain Coutteau of De Struise Brouwers. Urbain describes this work as "Dark chess-nut coloured ale with a nice steady off-white head. Aroma is all about finesse, loads of blossoms and spring flowers. The mouth-feel is refined, playful and complex with Saison like peppery flavours. Soft nutty after taste with a bite."

Pours a hazy, red color. One inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of caramel malt, earthy malt, slight sweet malt, slight hops, toffee, slight grass, hint of alcohol, hint of alcohol, and a hint of nut. Fits the style of a Belgian Strong Dark Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, slight hops, alcohol, hint of grass, and slight citrus. Overall, good appearance, aroma, blend, and body.

Serving type: on-tap

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

A: Poured from a bottle to a goblet. Had a dark brown color and a murky texture. There was almost no head to speak of. Very little lacing either.

S: A good aroma of malt, apples, spices, and a sugary quality.

T: Tasted of green apples, Belgian yeast, caramel, malt, and some spices. A nicely complex, focused beer with a lot of force to it. Quite tasty.

M: An average amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: One of better examples of a BSDA made by an American brewer. Isn't quite as fantastic as some of Stillwater's saisons, but a tasty beer nonetheless.

The beer pours a light brown amber with a dense, creamy, off-white head that laces. It has a very interesting nose; herbal, almost barrel aged bourbon booze, and candy sugar. Drinking it provides much less of the herbal aromatics/flavors as everything blends together, once again similar to a barrel aged beer (even though it's not BA). Upfront there is caramelized sweetness followed by subtle floral herbal notes and a very subtle bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, sweet, rich with balanced flavors, herbal (not excessively), and delicious. This is a unique, approachable gruit-esque beer that's definitely worth trying if you have the chance.
