Shared with friends a 2010 bottle poured into a tulip glass.
A - Clear, fancy honey colored, delicate carbonation, little lacing.
S - Wildflower honey, lemon rime rubbed in your hands, a lasting gentle funk to it.
T - Gentle lemon, blood orange in the front, honeycomb rides the middle, clean yet lightly sweet finish lingers while.
M - A touch thick (age) beautiful feel throughout, carbonation is low so body ensues, lite tartness cleans it all up.
O - The age on this had wonderful benefits, the honey vs. lemon. The carbonation settled down.
The developing sweetness were all a treat.

Cheers all

An exceptional, full flavoured Saison.

aroma: musky sherbet, ripe citrus with some tartness and slight spice.

taste: grapefruit, apricots, wine, sherbet, malt, spices, slight lemon, slight marmalade with pepper and overall a pleasant tartness

excellent drinking beer with lots going on and alcohol hidden well. Very nice to share.

On tap at Monk's, Philly, PA.

This keg must've been jostled a bit. One of the dirtiest looking beers I've ever seen, brownish-olive color, completely murky/muddy/opaque, like a glass of mud. There was a small off-white head on top, which retained well and laced the glass. In the aroma, bready yeast and a medley of overripe fruits, toasted grains. There was a bit of tartness to this one, lightly soured wheat, toasted grains, notes of pear and peach, white wine, lemon zest, herbal spice. Despite the ugly appearance--which, again, I'm attributing to the keg being jostled and just tapped--this was a pretty tasty brew. Medium body, moderate carb, mouthfeel was dry and slightly prickly. A good beer overall.

A-hazy orange amber color with a nice off-white head and good lacing

S-lemon, grains, strong bandaid, belgian yeast, light fruit and spices

T-grain, floral, honey, yeast, slight tartness, little nutmeg and apple, straw

F-medium body with moderate carbonation, crisp and a little dry

O-decent saison, but I prefer the regular to this offering, easy drinking if you get past the bandaid nose

750ml into snifter.

A: Pours a deep honey color with a fluffy, huge, whipped egg-white head that very slowly faded into a fuzzy and thick collar.
S: Meaty, savory, smoke fills my nose. I get notes of band aids and maybe a hint of mild lemon and caramel beneath.
T: Dirty dish water, peat, sour old grains, boiled meat, and faint citrus. The finish has a terrible sourness, and the aftertaste is peppery and full of grain.
M: Medium-full body, fluffy carbonation, muddy, sour, greasy mouthfeel.
O: Bad bottles are bad. I've heard of these smoke bombs but haven't encountered one yet. Very disappointing. I will have to revisit this again with hopefully a good bottle as I am not getting any of the flavors other reviewers are describing.
