The brewery calls this a "Dark Saison" and it is a very dark beer. Served in a tulip, the beer was black, with no translucence, and had about a half-inch of light tan head that had moderate retention and good lacing.

The expected yeast and spice notes are very subdued and there was just a slight hint of roastiness. The Saison features were more apparent on the tongue, but were still not as well defined as I expected. Some spice and a trace of roast lingered on the finish.

The body was fairly typical for the style, medium and crisp. Drinkability was good, as i find most Saisons to be. Overall, a nice, but not special, beer. Worth trying if you see it.

Serving type: on-tap
