Came off a discount shelf. Seemed a bit skunky with limited secondary flavors.

Bottle from the Wine Source in Baltimore. Served in a cervoise.

Pours a fairly-hazy deep gold-caramel color with a thin white head. A bit of spotty lacing iand a collar.

The nose carries a bit of bread and faint caramel alongside a bit of candy sweetness. No real saison yeast or spice to speak of. Flavor is similarly bland. Some honey, bread, and light toffee. Nothing indicating this is a saison. Faint fruit and spice as it warms.

Body is light-medium. A bit light on the carbonation, and somewhat dry through the finish.

Meh.

Hazy orange colour, with a small head that fades soon, leaving a non compact lace. Smell of dark fruits, honey, and lemon. Medium body, creamy and sticky palate. Good carbonation. Taste of dark fruits, hoeny, lemon is more perceptible. Good, but not near the best trappist beers.

11.2 oz bottle served into a chalice

Pours a glazed honey color with a lingering still head

Sweet plum, spiced caramel, and a hint a alcohol in the nose

Right away the dryness of the beer hits with a slightly sour punch that doesn't overpower the sweet bready flavor underneath.

Overall not too bad but on the lower end of the Trappist family.
