The beer pours a glowing golden color. There isn't much head to note and the only head I managed to get from the beer was kind of a creeper which I suspect is from the agitator in my glass. With no head there isn't any lacing to note.
Warm with a lot of mulling spice character which to my knowledge is cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. I'd call it a combination of cinnamon toast crunch, banana bread, and cider. Very warm, full, and pleasant for the most part although I don't think I would call it very indicative of the style. Maybe an American saison designation is in order.
Taste and Mouthfeel:
I feel like I just took a big bite of banana bread. The beer is smooth and a touch slick. There really isn't a whole lot of tart earthiness to the beer. Spices really dominate this beer with only a snap of sweet apple bitterness in the end of the drink. The finish is bready with a parallel of cinnamon which carries in to the aftertaste.
At 9% ABV I'd say this beer hides it better than any beer I've ever had of this strength. This would be an amazing fall and winter beer but it still drinks pretty easy on a sunny July day.
A far cry from a saison in terms of roots but this is a solid beer that certainly has the FFF touch to it. If I could review it as an American saison or something to that effect it would have done better but it's not really fair to pit this against Saison Dupont and call it a true stab at the style.

Certainly darker than straw this Saison had a deep apricot hue with a foamy meringue like head.
The nose is spicy, clove and peppercorns, with a bit of bready malt. I can sense some fruity Apple and pear but it's subtle and overwhelmed by a tangy vinegar.
The flavors are spicier than the nose but I still get a sense of the bready malt. Tangy vinegar, wine like alcohols, diminished Apple and pear with a bit of barn yard funk all mix for a lighter less tasteful farmhouse ale.
The feel is very warm for the style and with 7pct ABV that is unusual.
This is a decent rendition of the style but perhaps it left me begging for more fruit and less spice.
