A 2002(!) bottling. Perhaps past its prime but certainly held up very well.
Rich complex aroma and flavor with figs, raisins and spices.
The flavors are nicely balanced and blended.

A strange nose of coriander and chocolate mint. Very fruity and herbal.
In mouth, these flavors are dominant with a punch of citrus. Tartness is short and it's surprisingly well balanced.
Overall, it's a strange but tasty beer. Not bad but I don't think I'd drink it again

Just arrived at Liquor Shed in Casper.

Okay, a big pop and super gush when I removed the cap. Beer everywhere.

It pours a rusty murky colour with a 1 finger head of foam. Nice lacing.

A strong spicy nose of coriander, clove, bubblegum. Yeast. A very perfumey nose overall.

Everything in the smell is in the taste as well as a strong bitter/tartness of lemon zest and apples, It finishes bitter and tart. Long aftertaste.

On the low end of medium bodied, the carbonation, well, it's healthy to say the least.

Other than the huge gush, this was very enjoyable.

Bottle shared by Bob last night. '03 vintage.

Pours a very dark orange, one of the darker saisons I've seen. There's a 2 inch head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells like apple cider, wheat, and library books. Sort of a dusty and musty smell.

This one tastes a little oxidized, but it blends in well with the dusty flavors, some moss, apple cider, wheat, citrus fruits. Nothing outstanding, but tasty enough.

This one is medium bodied, with a tart and vinegary mouthfeel. Pretty drinkable.

Interesting as an aged beer, but this one probably hit its peak about 5 years ago.
