4.65/5 rDev +12.6%
Tap at theresas cafe Wayne pa into tulip. No head on a brown almost reddish color. Nice spicy saison aromas with a hint of woody funk?
Taste is dried fruit and maybe some woody leather. Spices are mellow and warming. Superb dry mouthfeel...and a perfect winter saison. I love when a beer surprises the hell out of you. ..this one did just that. Its so funky and real that its probably a brew I will hunt down always. I hate to even say it but its as close to a Fantome brew as I've ever encountered from a domestic...hell any, brewery ever. Really a fantastic brew. Not to be passed up.

3.75/5 rDev -9.2%
Draft at Monk's Cafe in Philadelphia, PA.
Pours a dark ruby red/chestnut brown color with mahogany edges and a one finger, off-white head that quickly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind.
Slightly spicy aroma with subtle farmhouse funk and dark fruit notes. Slightly medicinal with some zesty pepper and cinnamon spice followed by sweet caramel malt, bread, toffee, raisin and cherry juice.
On the lighter end of medium body with a crisp, zesty spice presence countered by sweet vinous fruits and subtle farmhouse yeast. Peppery with some cinnamon and nutmeg followed by subtle earthy funk and a sweet, vinous dark fruit presence. Lots of sweet cherry along with subtle grape, currant and other dark berries. Really nice balance and the high ABV is well masked making it very easy to drink. This beer was a pleasant surprise and I look forward to drinking it again sometime.
