This beer was amazing, and more than worth the $7 or so paid for it. 22oz bottle poured in a Belgian tulip glass in two parts. Nice, full, white head on a perfectly orange-tinted golden brew with reasonable carbonation at the 55 degrees or so at which it is supposed to be served. Strong nose typical of, even epitomizing, Belgian Saisons. Enticing. Rich notes of cherry and lemongrass balanced with hops to make a strong, flavorful brew. Clearly 10+ percent, although no alcohol burn distracts from the taste. Nice story behind the brew, too. Overall, an incredible paragon of saisons for the lover of saisons. I know I sound like a Stone representative right now, but I just really love this beer. It will undoubtedly be a repeat buy.

A- hazy deep gold color, small ring of head. No lacing.

S- peaty pale malt. Warm cherries. Almost a cherry pie smell with a bit of Belgian funk.

T- smooth, smokey, sweet, smooth sweet cherry pale flavors with a smokiness lingering and showing up on the back end. A bit of a floral hop in the background.

M- heavy, smooth, satisfying.

O- every part of this beer is prestigious. Lots of variables all working perfectly to make this a truely pleasurable experience. The best saison I have ever had.

Big cherry taste with carbonation to break up the sweetness. Meaty smoke on the back-end helps hide the alcohol. Great beer.
