Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a chalice.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Slight finger of white head that quickly settles into a thin patchy layer.

Smell: A juicy, spicy, and sweet Belgian style aroma with hints of citrus, spices, and funk. Belgian yeast with spice hints of pepper and clove along with some farmhouse funk. Zesty hints of orange, lemon, and grapefruit. Sweet hints of candied sugar. Malt hints of grains, wheat, and cracker. Hops are pretty subtle. A pretty nice zesty aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a juicy, sweet, and spicy Belgian style taste with notes of citrus fruit, spices, and funk. Belgian yeast with some pepper and clove spicing. Notes of farmhouse funk and candied sugar. Big citrus presence with zesty notes of lemon, orange, and grapefruit. Also some fruit notes of apple, banana, and pear. Malt notes of wheat, grains, and cracker. A pretty solid Saison style taste.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, juicy, and spicy. Fairly chewy and syrupy.

Overall: A pretty solid twist on an Imperial Saison. Nice zesty fruit flavor that has held up very well with time.

Thanks to Mark for gifting me with bottles of this, enjoyed chilled in a taster glass.

the color is a lightly clouded golden with thin white head with fine bead. The smell has a light citrus and pepper aroma with yeast ester. There is a nice feel with generally spicy and dry quality with light malt sweetness.

The taste has a mild tangy saison yeast flavor with the spices over a cracker like lightly toasted grain element with dry finish. Overall this was very tasty considering it has about 3 years of age on it.

not bad.....cant believe I am drinking a beer that was made 5-25-12! lol its 5-2-15! they say on the bottle its good till 5-25-17!!!
its not bad...its a wheat beer that almost has an apple juice and spice to it. its kinda juicy like nineteen..but nineteen is way over the top juice tasting. this is like a cross between beer and cider? 10.5%!! wish I read that before popping open my 3rd beer! lol
I had to dump out nineteen but I think I can handle this one....its not bad not great. I will give it a touch over ok.
It is kinda like their farmhouse ale......less dank.
