Interesting that reviews are all over the place on this one. Finally managed to score a bottle, #75/625, poured to tulip. The beer pours a deep dark mahogany color with a nice 3 finger beige head with unreal retention and lacing. Looks phenomenal. The nose is rather complex, a blend of vanilla, plum, raisins are most prevalent. The flavor follows suit with again the dark fruits most dominant. Hints of toffee, cocoa. Not a lot of saison character, more similar to a belgian dark (edit: which is how it's listed here on BA). The barrel aging allows for a mild oak flavor. A lot going on here. Enjoyable. Higher end of medium bodied and well carbonated. Overall, very enjoyable and different. Glad to have purchased.

Hazy dark red amber with an excellent head.

Strange aroma is tart, fruity (including apricot) and mildly acerbic.

Flavor largely follows and is also mildly tart, but with a balance of bitter and sweet as well. A lot going on but not completely integrated or balanced.

Medium body and carbonation.
