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.

On tap at Churchkey. Served in a snifter. Pours a medium-dark brown with some crimson highlights. Short head and a collar throughout.

The nose has some like cherry and faint caramelized grain. Nose and flavor both have background spice and a nice dryness. A bit earthy, especially as it warms up.

Body is medium with relatively-soft carbonation, though appropriate for the beer. Light bitterness through the finish.

Overall, very well integrated and smoothly executed. I'd happily order another glass of this.
