A beautiful beer. Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Creamy white head and great lacing, golden brown body. Funky fruit smell. Taste of Belgian Saison, funkiness and pleasant earthiness. I would get this again.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.

L---Deep orange color. Mostly clear. Thick, off-white head that had ok retention and left very nice lacing.

S---Sweet. Citrus & yeast. Orange is noticeable. Hoppy, but not like an American IPA.

T---Full. Orange, grapefruit. Not as hoppy on the tongue as on the nose. A little bit of banana.

F---Thick & juicy. Goes down easier than it probably should at a high ABV. Very well carbonated.

O---Excellent brew. I've had it before several times and knew enough to pick it up when it was at my shop. I'll grab more if it shows up again.

Dark copper colored with an inch of creamy tan head on top. The aroma is that sweet candy like Belgian triple yeast. I'm tasting that sweet Belgian triple yeast which dominates the flavor and aroma. The mouth is very dry and moderately carbonated.

I really like hops showcased on a pillow of Belgian yeasts and this does it for me. More subdued than a typical IPA and showcases the more floral elements of the hops. This is a winner and I wish I had access to it in cans!

Really easy to drink such a big beer!

Good IPA, not too hoppy and doesn't feel as strong as the ABV. Noted the bready malt taste immediately and then the citrus finish. Felt like it tasted better with each sip.

From a 12 oz. bottle into a 16 oz. mug pours a clear light amber with a frothy head with good lacing.
Head does not last very long but comes right back with a swish.
I smell yeast and the resulting esters. Lots of hops and some malt.
Yeast is in the flavor plus typical IPA elements; bready malt up front, pine bitterness and citrus finish.
This is my 1st Belgian style brew so I can't judge the yeast flavor over other yeast types but the difference is noticeable.
I am learning.
Medium texture, sweet at 1st, bitter and slighty sour finish.
Well hidden alcohol until it warms, then it is still fairly well hidden compared to other offering at this ABV.
Looking forward to trying other beers from F.D., and this one again.

Smooth and slightly filling (3 beer) light aromatic fruit smell (fig/plum) a tad darker amber shade. A good smoking BBQ beer. Medium filling sensation. Overall great beer, will buy again. 1cm head heavy pour.
