3.88/5  rDev +19%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12 oz bottled. bottled on: 08/07/12.

A: pours brown, really didnt see this coming. in the mood for a nice blond saison and this is what i get. ah, the review must go on! (well maybe i should read the whole label, cause it does clearly state "black saison" on the bottom) head is plentiful and the retention is good. great lacing as well.

S: minty and juniper. a little bit of licorice. the spice covers up any malt or hop aroma imo.

T: a little barnyness on this brew here. slightly tart. roasted notes as well. dries things out very quickly. a little bit of hay lingers on the finish, but not for long.

M: moderate amount of fizz. medium bodied.

D: interesting brew. very heavily spiced, which takes center stage. the barnyness on the body is solid and well appreciated. maybe its my own fault, but i definitely expected a little more from these two breweries working together.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Dark brown color with an incredible caramel head with great retention and leaving lots of laces. So this is a Dark Saison.
Refreshing funky aroma with a pleasant lemon tartness, Belgian yeast, spices and just a hint of cocoa powder.
Very original flavor, notes of coffee, a good deal of earthy and herbal hops, tons of spices (ginger, pepper, cloves, cardamon, so many that is hard to really say it for sure), anise, mint, pumpkin, licorice, green apple, finishing with a lemony tartness and dark chocolate.
Medium body with good carbonation, a bit effervescent.
Love or hate beer. Surprising taste, I was expecting the same usual average Saison taste; it actually reminded me of Jägermeister liquor with its medicinal flavor with Mexican mole! I found it much more interesting than most beers of its style, but it is definitely not for everyone, which may be the reason why this brew is underrated.
