absolutely dynamite example of the style here, and the second killer beer in a row i have had from these guys. decently priced bottle here, and a very faithful interpretation of what this style is supposed to be. burnt orange in color with some obvious viscosity. belgian yeast robust in the nose, some sweeter abbey type malts underneath, nuances of orange peel, dried cherry, raisin, rum, fig, and milling spices, autumnal but so effervescent as to be approachable rather than heavy in the glass. flavors are beautiful here, equal parts grain and yeast driven, with the back and forth between them being quite dynamic. peppery yeast, brown sugary malts, dried red apple and orange, honey, a french saison element too, vinous and interesting. overall just delicious, fuller but so well carbonated it sings. warms up super well too. a highly refined and nuanced beer. i need to find some more from these guys while i still have some time left in texas, this was impressively good! a style id like to see more of from american brewers...

Not much that I can add to the other excellent reviews. Save the World saves me every time I pop a bottle. Another great beer from what is becoming my favorite brewery. I just need more in DFW!

Poured gently at 45°F from a 750ml bottle (no date) into a long-stemmed tulip. Consumed on 02Jun16.
LOOK: Pours with a fingers worth of off-white foam that persists well after three minutes. Amber in color with a moderate amount of cloudiness. The massive amounts of small and medium-sized rising bubbles explain why the foam head refuses to die. Lacing is moderate in quantity and both thick and very thick in various areas.
SMELL: Strong aromas of plums, figs, and black cherries entangle with mild aromas of toast, banana, honey, peach, and earthy yeast. Subtle clove and hints of bitter hop aromas prevent any cloying.
TASTE: Strong fig, plum, and black cherry flavors burst onto the palate to deliver an instant and enjoyable sweetness. Some balance is presented as mild toast and banana flavors immediately follow. Mild flavors of honey and peach along with subtle earthy yeast trail right after as banana flavors grow stronger. A mild spice makes itself known as clove flavors enter while earthy yeast flavors grow slightly stronger. Hints of bitter hops finish off this symphony of flavor as all previous flavors maintain, except for cloves, which grow slightly more prevalent.
FEEL: The thickness of the beer can be described as medium-bodied. Carbonation levels are very high. So high, in fact, that my tongue is practically getting stung. Goes down rough due to the high carbonation levels. Finishes with a mild and somewhat unpleasant dryness.
NOTE: Save the World does it again. Another great Belgian-styled brew. The earthy yeast provided just the right amount of rustiness for this style. This was incredibly sweet, but the clove, toast, and bitter hop flavors hindered any cloying. An amazing example of this style. I highly recommend to anybody who loves these types of brews.

Poured from a bomber into a snifter. Deep orange-gold cooler with a great head and lacing. Fruity and herbal smell. Taste of tangerines, herbs and raisins. Sweet and malty. Great with cheese and crackers!

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A nice tangerine orange body, with a thin glow and lots of ample carbonation rising. The lifting bubbles are all over the place, coming in huge streams but in control. Nice fluffy and cream off white to vanilla yellow head, two fingers, and no lacing but always being repopulated and falling very slowly. Very light color for a de garde, but a great looker.

Solid aroma and bouquet. Subtle honey and a mild sense of floral and dough like quality. Mild yeast but a sweet thickness that comes over a bit as well. Some sweet candy fruit quality that's hard to pin down but is real intriguing. Melon but sweeter, apricots but not as fruity, it does not want to give away it's secrets, but makes me appreciate it more.

Palate arrives with some real surprises. Great creamy texture and aroma with a carbonation good pop, and a good amount of caramel. Steely finish with some mild pepper aromas, very controlled dark green herbs it seems just flirting with borderline tin quality. Soft caramel sweetness but stays away from toffee and bounce with Belgian candi sugar on the mid palate. Fruited honey bread and a spice loaf note on the finish. Herbal qualities seem to get more aromatic on the finish, and a big dry brown bread crust to match, and a cookie doughy graham cracker sweetness to go with it.

Lots going on here, and this comes off as one real hybrid which I can't seem to pigeon hole. However, it is wonderfully complex and delicious in it's own right, making for a great beer to enjoy.
