750ml bottle dated 02/09/16

Pours cloudy near opaque burnt orange dark amber with a fluffy creamy light khaki colored head. Smells like apples, banana, spice, some dried apricot and prunes, mild funk, caramel, toffee, molasses, brown sugar, with mild earthy grass and floral pine. Tastes like apples and spice, mild banana, roasted cereal grain, some toffee, chocolate, caramel malt, molasses, brown sugar, with some orange citrus, apricots, dried dark fruit, earthy grass, and floral pine. Feels medium-full bodied, creamy with moderate low carbonation. Overall a really interesting and unique tasting brew.

Poured this into tall tulips and shared. Pours an almost perfectly clear, dark reddish-copper color, with a huge, offwhite head that sticks around. Aroma is slightly spicy yeast and bread. Taste follows aroma, classic Belgian saison yeastiness, with a very nicely balanced sweetness to bitterness. Mouth is fairly dry, but sweet enough to please, and with ample carbonation. Overall, a very nice and easy drinking farmhouse ale.

Poured from the bottle into stemmed tulip.
Pours a really nice dusky reddish/auburn. One finger of head.
Aromas are a lot of dark fruit, plum and raisin, sweet sticky malt as well.
Flavors are really nice and in line with aromas, really delicious.
Mouthfeel was really nice.
Overall, as someone who enjoys red ales, I really enjoyed this one. Great beer!
