look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

a: Bright, clear, shining golden color. Small, short lived head.

s: Mild overall, but appealing. Bicuity malts, mild spice, and warm, floral phenols.

t: Sweet, spicy, and a little hot. Sweet ripe bananas and a little citrus up front. Light spices mid-palate getting heavy towards the end. The finish is sweet, flowery alcohol and peppery cloves run amok.

m: Heavy for a saison.

o: I've loved most of their anniversary beers, but this was a miss for me.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pour is a nice hazy orange gold. 1/4 finger of off white head fades rapidly, no lacing.

Nose is soft bready yeast with a hint of orange peel and honey. Not that potent.

Taste is full of spice up front. Lots of clove, soft ginger, with some citrus notes of orange and lemon. Finishes with a nice malty sweet yeast. Leaves a lingering breadiness, but gentle.

Feel is a bit thicker and heavier than I would expect for this style, and is appreciated.

Really a delightful saison, a style I don't often love. Really nice balance of spice, yeast, and floral citrus here though.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.25

Appearance- very overally chunky even after even a very slow pour, not sure if product of its age or just how the beer was, golden yellow color with thin white lacing,

Smell- nice malty sweet nose with citrus orange tones

Taste- starts up with little bit of citrus and fruit but really rounds out just being super heavy of spice tones, the spice really over dominated other aspects of flavor

Mouthfeel - light carbonation soft and slick, slight warmth from alcohol

Drink ability /overall- the spice def took off drinability as did some strong alchol at points, overall this beer though not bad was just bit too boozy and off balanced for the style almost came off to me as more of an off balanced triple, I didnt like this better then merry monks if going for that style, any way it wasn't better then average to me

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A - Pours a straw yellow with plenty of floating particulates and a minimal head, dissipates quickly to no cap and sticky lacing.

S - Heavy yeast and breadiness with citrus, mostly lemon and grapefruit, peeking through.

T - On the tongue a citrus medley that switches between sweet and tart. Changes on the swallow to what I can only presume is the peppercorns, which I find awful. Slight bitterness and a possible metallic aftertaste. Bitterness seems to grow with time.

M - Medium body and carbonation.

O - The one flavor in the middle of the beer kills it for me. Minus that not a bad beer. Will not have again.
