3.58/5  rDev -14.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #60 (Jan 2012):

LOOK: Pale murky straw

SMELL: Dried grass, passionfruit, peppery, papaya, nutty, yeast, mango, eucalyptus, lemon zest, alcohol

TASTE: Smooth, creamy, bitter herb, yeast, dried tropical fruit, vegetal, green peppercorns, lemon pith, boozy alcohol, medicinal, faint broth, bitter, dry finish

A special Saison brewed for the holidays, and perhaps for the winter, as it touts a hefty punch. Not sure if the extra alcohol does it much justice though. Clearly it’s a decent sip, but more of a sharing and pairing offering, as it seems bit lost on its own.

3.6/5  rDev -13.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Thin bubbly lacing, some stickage. Glowing orange hue shows some action from the carbonation.

Smell: Spicy aroma; black pepper, clove with a phenolic herbal smell. A touch of solvent alcohol and ripe pineapple and mango as well.

Taste: Hugely phenolic, the palate gets hit hard with herbal and medicinal notes. Some hops in there as well as some shaded maltiness. More phenols, raw honey maltiness and an earthened hop. Obvious coriander. Light ripe tropical fruit within the solvent like alcohol. Odd tartness in the end and finishes a bit dry.

Mouthfeel: Rolling crispness builds to a textured smoothness.

Drinkability & Notes: More interesting than anything else, certainly a specialty beer that I’d have after a meal or if the meal was bold enough to pair it with that.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Lemon yellow and cloudy with lots of yeast particles floating within. Soda like carbonation, highly carbonated. It sports a 5 finger white head with a lemony tinge and small and large bubbles. Random chunky lacing.

S: Funky Belgian yeasts reminiscent of Saison Dupont, lemon rind, herbs like sage, snow, white sugar, slight cabbage or skunk, bitterness, light floral, candied lemon.

T: Lemon candy, lemon rind, medium sweetness, a hit of white lemon pith and rind in the taste of bitterness, bitter herbs, I believe there is brettanomycies in this. I tasted it in the Bruery’s and Boulevard’s brews only they tend to oversweeten those brews in my opinion. This is much dryer and pleasant as well as original. Light sourness. The alcohol is well covered. Light fruitiness.

M: Medium thick, slighty gelatinous and syrupy, medium low carbonation. Dry finish.

O: An amazing classic that I can see has set a standard for high octane saisons. Much prefer it to the others I’ve tried. Drank at Turkey Creek with my father in law June 29, 2014.

From a bomber to a tulip.

A - Hazy deep gold with a fluffy, pillowy, head that won't quit. Excellent lace on the glass.

S - Skunk as soon as the bottle was opened. Dissipated quickly and stayed well in the background afterwards. Bready, toasty malt, spicy notes from hops and/or yeast. Very rustic.

T - Very complex. Toasty malt, nondescript fruity notes from yeast. Significant bitterness that helps dry the beer out. Rustic without being overly "funky". Dry, bitter, spicy finish.

M - Explosive carbonation fills the mouth. Medium body with a dry, bitter finish. Very low alcohol warmth; well-hidden for the 9.5% ABV.

O - Wow. Take the initial skunk aroma away and this is a world class beer. I will seek this out again in the hops of a fresher bottle. Love the style.

Bottled in 2008 and this beer held up extremely well. A bit of sediment and opened with a huge 'pop' but decanted clear. Great taste. Full. Amazing amount of brett noticeable. Some heat but very well attenuated. It's an experience to drink the beer at the brewery (with the toilets in the back by the cows) but you can always find perfect examples of the beer in bottles too!!
