It appears dark red with a small tan head.

It smells of caramel, toffee, citrus, light peppery yeast and it smells a little grassy.

It tastes initially of a saison fruity peppery yeasty flavor. There is a smooth malty caramel flavor. There is a mild hoppy grassy citrusy flavor as well. This beer does a nice job of highlighting the Belgian yeast yet there is still a substantial malty hoppy flavor. This is much smoother and less heavy then most barley wine. This is a very good interesting beer.

The carbonation is very low and the mouthfeel is pretty smooth.

Overall a pretty good smooth barleywine with a nice Belgian yeast flavor. All of the flavors blended well with each other.
