Poured into a snifter glass this beer has a hazy straw color. The color and head retention even mimic that of a macro lager. The look is thin and somewhat watery, but looks can be very deceiving.
The first smell has tons of spice to it. Cloves, taragon, fennel, and perhaps some annice fill the nose. There is also a faint sweetness in the nostrils. Another medicinal aroma is picked up and behind it some hops.
The flavors in this beer are so compelling. I'm surpised it isn't rated higher. Perhaps the appearance is hard to overcome. The first thing you notice as far as taste is the sweet malt, then the buttery flavors followed by raisons, oily hops on the roof of the mouth (but they do not linger), then a dryness that ends to a buttery finish (but not in a bad diacetyl way).
Mouthfeel is much more light and airy than the first whiff and taste will tell you. The alcohol help to thin out the massive flavor attach. I wouldn't call the mouthfeel thin by any means despite what the beer "looks" like (see above). I would call this an Imperial Saison with a perfect mouthfeel.
9.00%! Really?!%*& I wouldn't expect that from what I've just tasted. I know this beer is higher in alcohol than most saisons but 9% is just off the charts. The flavors are great, the aroma is beautiful, and the mouthfeel is a touch thick but this beer is insanely drinkable. I will have no problem finishing this bomber by myself.
My advice...seek this beer out and enjoy a few of them before the weather turns too cool. I like this one a lot and will definately seek it out again. Very good, very cool, very tasty!
