12oz shared with MrKennedy and heygeebee, courtesy of the former.

Piss yellow, near clear, on the first pour at least. Solid white head forms nicely before retreating to a collar.

Rather busy nose, mostly in a good way. Earthy grains, tangy spice, pear Danish, stewed apricots, doughy yeast and fennel. Quite evident honeyish, sweet malt base. Varying presence of solventy phenolics.

Sweeter with obvious booze presence, but still plenty of dry floral spice, bitter citrus pith and heather.

Hits the palate medium but quickly becomes heavier as the booze heat asserts. A little harsh until a deceptively dry late finish.

Worthwhile and fun. Mostly accommodating given the ingredient bill, but still rough around the edges.

Served in a tulip glass

A - It is a sunset orange/yellow color to it with some golden highlights. It is cloudy, and the last of my pour dumped in chunks of yeast.

S - The aroma has some lemon grass and spicy yeast. There is a pear smell, as well.

T - The tastebuds are dazzled by a spicy yeast. Some lemon, alcohol, and pear come on the finish.

M - Medium

O - This is a pretty good beer. I should have probably sit on it longer to cover let the alcohol mellow out. This beer has tons of flavor, and it definitely warmed me up.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

a: Bright, clear, shining golden color. Small, short lived head.

s: Mild overall, but appealing. Bicuity malts, mild spice, and warm, floral phenols.

t: Sweet, spicy, and a little hot. Sweet ripe bananas and a little citrus up front. Light spices mid-palate getting heavy towards the end. The finish is sweet, flowery alcohol and peppery cloves run amok.

m: Heavy for a saison.

o: I've loved most of their anniversary beers, but this was a miss for me.
