I had this super fresh when it first came out at Beer Revolution in Oakland on tap. I sorta liked it, but overall my impression is that this is too heavy on the hops and too light on the herbal and fresh Saison notes. You end up getting something more like a slightly watered down white IPA rather than a Saison. Oh well.

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.
