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.

3.55/5 rDev -14%
Obtained in growler form from the taproom. At 10% ABV, this is smooth and hides it well, but this years version is not as good as last years. This is amped up a notch and has lost some of the distinctive wheat flavor of last years recipe in the process, which to me is what made the beer so great last year. Still good, but I hope Oxbow revives last years recipe and keeps it each year without alteration, saving the experiments for the freestyle series. Having said all that, this is decent and Oxbow is a great place with great folks, and great beers overall.

On tap at Ebenezers, so it was better than great. Very dark amber with a thick creamy head and much lacing My nose picked up dates, figs and anise, very pleasant. The taste was much the same as the nose but with a bitter hoppy after taste unlike most saisons.The mouth feel was very soft and pleasant. I would have this again. Another hit from Oxbow.
