22 ounce bottle poured in a wide tulip glass. I’ve been sitting on this bottle for quite some time. Label says “Release #4”, which the Epic website informs me was brewed on March 22nd, 2011. It has been properly stored since purchase.
Appearance: Translucent gold with a cap of fat bubbles. The head slowly sinks until it’s floating an eighth of an inch above the surface.
Smell: Imagine creating an apple and banana fruit salad, and dusting it with ground cloves.
Taste: It’s like eating a slice of refrigerated apple pie on an unseasonably hot October afternoon. Tart apples, cloves, and cinnamon. There’s also a hint of mint, which gives the aftertaste the suggestion of apple flavored bubblegum.
Mouthfeel: Light body, very bubbly. Slightly tongue-numbing from the cloves and ginger.
Overall: I thoroughly enjoyed this eccentric saison. As noted above, it would probably be the perfect compliment to a hot Indian summer. Perfect timing for me since it’s June.

A: Pale golden, crystal clear; no lacing

S: So much tart, granny smith apples; a bit vinous; so tart and fruity and strange but I really like what's going on here

T: Wow, so dry and tart and fruity; this is strange and funky and tart but I think I like it

F: A little bit of carbonation; decent mouth feel on finish

O: I like this beer but it's a bit weird; I don't know if I could drink too much of it but that's okay, I like what I've got here
