Had a fresh one on tap in 2012 and had a May 2011 bottle also in 2012. The dry hopping gives a spicy floral character which obscures some of the saison yeast notes.
Spicy nose from the hops and the rye, light floral, fruit, caramel, light roast
Pours a beautiful clear dark reddish amber under a thin white finely bubbled foam cap.
Palate starts malty, big rye flavors, caramel, spicy, with a slight tang and blight, large pitted fruit. Dries on the finish with a moderate bitter hop accent.
Medium body and medium high carbonation, slightly warming.

Reviewed from notes, no date, drank with Nate on his second trip down.

Nate says after taste reminds him of Fresca. Medium cloudy brown with a thin white head, smells like an aged saison, rye definitely apparent in smell and taste, also taste faintly yeasty and clovey. Medium low in carbonation, slightly boozy. Taste like a mild version of John Henry's 3 lick spiker ale almost exactly.
