Color- sediment filled medium dark honey. Full head.

Aroma- funky yeasty sharp edge, floral notes, and hint of canned fruitcake.

Taste- awful! Either this was a bad bottle or this is the most awful Belgian Saisons ever. Tastes like soured milk and rotten fruit in a tin can. We had to pour out our glasses and the bottle after two small sips. Purchased locally at Twin Liquors in North Austin. Tasted on 5/31/14.

Must have got a bad can. So nasty I couldn't drink it. Dissapointing.

This was just a very nasty beer. Tasted like fermented rot. Wet leaves with stale fruit. Maybe it was a bad or old bottle, but it was enough that I would not try it again anyway.

A: And again, this is a huge gusher. Pours a dark burnt orange color. Yeast floaties all over the place. A massive white head pours out of the bottle. The foam vanishes in the glass in a second and can not be rejuvenated. Light lace.
S: Earthy yeast, phenols, pepper. I can't get much else.
T: Up front is dry earthy yeast. Phenolic, kind of plastic like. Burnt caramelized brown sugar.
M/D: A medium body with prickly carbonation. Initially the earthy yeast makes this dry, but finishes to much on the sweet side for me. Fairly easy to drink, though not coming back to this one.

Pretty much just like the Golden Ale, but a bit sweeter. Especially in the finish. Again, too expensive for what is here, and another gusher. Not something I am going to revisit.

Poured from the bomber into a chalice.
Review from notes: January 17th, 2014.

A: Hazy copper. Nice white head.

S: Tart apple, some citrus. No malt or hops detectable.

T: Nice. Smooth front, somewhat bitter. Floral, but not overpowering.

M: Very bubbly on the tongue. Dry aftertaste.

O: Pretty good. Nice flavor. Not really a saison.
