12 oz bottle courtesy of mwrecording pours a hazed orange color with a thin cap of white head. Not much for retention or lace.

Nose is tropical fruity and spiced up like a mutha. Overpower the spice and hops, little bit of alcohol, not much else.

Rustic, farmhouse saison this is not. Taste is really tropical, both from the alcohol and rampant yeast. Not overly pleasant as the spices just further separate this beer from its stylistic roots. Its not a bad beer, but more of a tripel than a saison to me and I am not a fan of spice additions in a saison. Bad saison, average beer and falls in the lower tier of Weyerbacher Anniversary beers.

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.
