3.6/5  rDev +9.1%

Whoa, a 13% saison made with my favorite fruit, cranberries? Must try! Than I see the fancy packaging, wax sealed with a G stamp. OK, how is it?

Appearance is murky ruddy light brown with no foam or lace.

Smell is sweet, fruity and alcohol. Waxy phenols.

Taste is not nearly as sweet, fruity or sour as I expected. Nicely integrated. For the heft, all the more impressive. I'm disappointed by the lack of depth, as impressed as I am about it not being too much, I also wish there was more.

Mouthfeel is light, slick.

Drinkability is surprisingly high. I thought this would be a big strong fruit bomb, like devil's kriek x 2, but it's really clean and smooth, dangerously strong. I'm shocked at how strong they claim it is. Impressed on one hand, the execution here is impressive, but the design is a little too conservative.

Thanks for sharing Vince

App- A glowing orange with deep yellows and golds and mixed with a slight brown tinge. The beer is flat. No bubbles and no cling. Denser center, lighter edges.

Smell- There was a lot of booze in the nose on this. Phenols and lemons. Lost a ton of the peppery, yeast and banana of a good saison. The cranberry tart is there but seemed an afterthought.

Taste- This just wasn't very good. Missing a lot of flavors to call a saison. The cranberries added a tartness and wasn't sure the abv really needed to be 13%. The saison lacked balance of wheat/pepper and was instead fairly oxidized even as waxed.

Mouth- A thicker medium body and a thicker medium carbonation. Cranberries and butter are the residual flavors.

Drink- This was just average. Nothing more, nothing less.
