22oz bottle into bulbous St Feuillien stemmed glass.
Full carbonation with fine bubbles (bottle conditioned).
Aroma is dominated by spice and menthol.
Tastes kinda like bitters and mint chocolate latte, some chai as well. Definitely some Brett in there too. For spices, I'd guess from ginger, eucalyptus, some kind of pepper, cardamom, anise, allspice, or sage, and in the Belgian tradition I'd bet on grains of paradise, coriander, and/or some kind of fruit peel. It's an interesting and complex spice presence, and certainly a strong one.
Slick mouthfeel with dry finish and lingering herbal bitterness. Fairly astringent and somewhat metallic.
Unique for sure, it really grew on me but I'd recommend sharing the bottle. It reminds me of bitters and beer cocktails, which I thoroughly enjoy, so I think that's why I like more than most.
Should be interesting to age.

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.
