Picked up a bottle at Total Wine in mid-November for $11.99. Rec'd at TW on 8-19-13. Not sure of the bottling date. I had sampled this at the Peoria charity beer festival in which despite my wrecked palate this beer stood up and said try me again when your palate is clean!
Beer poured golden orange with a beautiful soap bubble head that is hanging around nicely.
Nose is yeasty and dry, with some hints of mango.
Taste is mango, peach, white pepper, with a pretty dry finish.
Mouthfeel is very smooth, nicely carbonated and light on the palate.
Overall this is an outstanding brew, definitely not your classic saison but perhaps a hybrid saison-tripel. Definitely worth the splurge!

Bomber bottle with brewed/bottled on dating. Purchased at the source.
Hazed and lovely lookin' under a frothy and rocky off white head that lasts nicely.
Fruity nose with ripe melon coming forward
Tasty, complex and thoroughly saison in character. Fruit, spice, yeast, crafty goodness.
Love the style and love this beer.
Please consider distribution to the NYC area

On tap at Breckenridge at the Ballpark in Denver. Pours deep orange colored with a small off white head. Aroma of tropical fruits as expected, some light funk, and a hint of spice. Flavor is on the sweeter side with lots of bubble gum notes and some tropical fruits, sweet wheaty malts, and very little zesty saison like barnyard yeast going on here. Medium plus bodied and medium carbonation. Overall I found this to be only OK, but not bad.
