i would not have guessed this was as strong as it is, partly because i think the alcohol is pretty well hidden, but also because it was served to me in a pint glass at one of those beachside tourist eateries that didnt know how to handle or present this beer. might be some consistency issues too, my brother had the same beer mere days earlier at the same establishment and loved it, then tasted mine and said it was much different and worse, maybe some keg variance going on? in any event, its not bad, just more or less unexciting wheat beer. its murky and a bit thicker, not much head by the time it reaches our table. aroma and flavor of a real warm fermentation, some of those forced fruity notes, white grape and apple, not all the way pleasing, but fine with the wheat and pils malts. a belgian element to the yeast too. it feels a little off, unrefined, but its not at all bad, and drinks relatively easily for what it is. perhaps my biggest critique is not with the beer at all but how it was served. nothing is more unflattering to a beer than serving a strong one in a pint glass, its just absolutely the wrong format for this style, and i think it does no favors at all to the beer. unfortunately this was the only beer from these guys i was able to try on my florida trip, and it wasnt a great first impression. i will make a point to find more next time i am back in the state and give them another shake...

Drank on tap, good saison. Very buttery and smooth initial taste with an alcohol-ish aftertaste. A higher than average ABV at 8.6% sets it apart from other saisons.

A decent saison. Opaque honey colored beer with subtle malt smell. Malty flavor with a hint of sweetness. Nice carbonation with a smooth but crisp finish.
