22oz bomber picked up at the brewery a couple weeks ago.
Poured into a tulip at about 50 degrees. Large, dense, beige colored head over a very cloudy, dark amber body. Great head retention, and tons of lacing.
Aromas are full of canned pineapple juice - very tropical - along with some papaya, and red apple. Little bit of bready yeast in the background, and a touch of Fall spice. Pretty inviting.
Mouthfeel is awfully smooth for a Saison - bordering on creamy. Light zest from the carbonation, but not much. Flavors don't have the teeth of the aromas, as they do pick up mostly dull apple skins, and old peach. Light bitterness in the finish. Malt comes through a little heavy for my liking. Touch of wet hay accompanies the finish.
Would've liked more brightness and herbal/floral qualities, but it's still a nice, drinkable Saison, given the ABV.

22oz bottle poured into a Tripel Karmeliet tulip.
A - Tries to gush a bit on opening, but fast hands prevents any loss of beer. Pours a bit murky with some noticeable floating yeast particles in the body of the beer. Deep amber in color, ample carbonation bubbles and a thick, fluffy two fingers of khaki foam that shows good staying power.
S - Very citrusy aroma, heavy in oranges - almost tang like in character...a bit of lemony tartness too. A bit yeasty too. Interesting, but not much dimension to it.
T - Sweat, maltose-y malt at the base, thick and a bit heavy. Earthy as well with mild hints of roasted malt. Mild hop bitterness - a bit dull in flavor character, perhaps overwhelmed a bit by the malt. The citrus that was so strong in the aroma is lacking any real presence in the flavor, disappointingly.
M - Medium bodied, but the sweet maltiness makes it feel heavier. Carbonation is rather high, foamy and tingly on the tongue.
O - Not very "saison-y"...heavy handed in the malt department. Nice citrus aspects in the aroma, but lost in the flavor. Not especially impressed - drinkable for sure, but not memorable at all.
