Unlabeled bottled. Burnt August orange. Large white head like normal.

Spicy, zesty, earthy, cloves, Belgian yeast. Saison, but a bit more malts and a bit stronger. Apparently tea was used instead of hops, but I wouldn’t have noticed it. Still has some bitterness. Orange peel in the finish.

750ml bottle into a matching ghosty tulip appears copper in color with an offwhite cap that fades leaving stringy lace.

Aroma is fruity like strawberry with belgian aromatic malt sweetness and mild grassiness. As it breathes there is quite a bit of unique yet subtle spiciness that I assume to be derived from the tea.

Taste is strawberry fruitiness, tea spices, green yeastiness and lingering herbal bitterness/tannins/astringency with additional fruity alcohol component.

Medium in body with modest carbonation. What a strange ride, im gonna buy more to see what strange course this brew takes with age. Leave it to DanyP to craft a "mild" ale at 8% so much mystery, many enjoyments.
