Thanks to JC for sharing this with me, KG and tenderbranson69 enjoyed chilled in a willybecker.

The color is golden hazed with thick white cap with fine bead and visibly carbonated. The feel smell is yeast with slight phenolic and vinous and herbal aroma. The feel is great, lightly sweet with nice bitterness level gentle yeast creaminess with slight hint of fruity yeast and semi-dry finish.

The taste of this saison has a mild bitter hop aspect with slight yeast and gentle woody element with a light malt taste and slight hint of fruitiness with a light grainy flavor in the background and hint of pepper. The yeast tastes dominates with slight green aspect yet there is a warming tinge of alcohol in the finish. Overall I was pleased to try this, thanks JC, very interesting saison. I was surprised to learn it is over 10%, the warmth is there but in general the feel and drinkability are not effected by the extra strength.

On tap the bier stein the other day.

The beer pours a honey amber color with fairly decent head retention and light lacing. On the nose I pick up considerable tropical fruit, which seemed to be dominated by some mandarin orange and light maraschino cherry. There is a noticeable smoked meat aroma as well in this beer that is intriguing. The flavor profile replicated the nose, the beer was a bit sweeter that I was expecting. The tropical fruit really seemed to dominate the flavor profile, though there was also some nice underlying spice (along with the smoke) as well. Mouthfeel was medium bodied, and the finish was clean and moderately long. Alcohol is well integrated into the flavor profile, and so drinkability is pretty good (though the sweetness wore on me a bit).

An interesting beer, but not one I can see myself being in the mood for all that often.

A: Golden with red hue and a bubbly head that dissipates quickly. I'm surprised this is so clear in the glass... usually saisons are a little more 'wheaty' looking.

S: Cherry and oak. Also some wheat grass.

T: Big cherry wood flavor, which is just fantastic in my opinion. There's some booze-soaked wood in there, golden wheat grass, lemon, herbs, some bright fruit, and a bitter yet sweet after taste. It's definitely different, but it's so good!

M: Mouth is HEAVY on this one. I don't mean that in a stout way, but for a saison this is a heavy beer, which is not necessarily a good thing for this style. I would have loved it to be a bit lighter and more refreshing on the palate.

O: It was either this one or the Old Guardian, which I've had (loved it). I'm really happy that I chose something new and so innovative. This beer is awesome and very different, but good even for the style. Try it!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Aroma: Yeasty, bready.

Appearance: Very light amber, clear, small white head.

Flavor: Strong, weird burnt fruity.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, dry alcohol finish.

Overall: Not very good, the flavors just don't belong together. It has a weird toasty/burnt fruit flavor mixed with a harsh alcohol that just does not hit my palate right. Would not buy again. $5.99 for 22oz.
