Poured a copper-red body with minimal head and some lace that stuck around. The aroma seems to be delicately funky, barely noticeable, along with a touch of breadiness and maltiness. Light-to-medium bodied, slightly sticky at times, a slow sipper thanks to be being a little spicy and toasty, and balances what comes across as caramel/toffee/candi sugar sweetness with an herbal spiciness.

a new beer from these guys! one of the best operations in the game, but this is the first innovation i have seen from them in as long as i can remember. stoked to encounter this one, its a strong amber saison that sort of flirts with a tripel, a very cool, and predictably expertly executed beer. its clearish deep bronze in color, pushing copper, with a short but airy white belgian looking head on it and some visible carbonation rising up. the nose is reserved saison yeast with some soft belgian esters but not as rustic as in their other saison types, maybe just real new, i know a lot of the bottles have some age on them by the time they come home, at least in this market. there is a cool sweetness too, which i get in the taste as well, like a candy sugar spike like you might find in a tripel or a strong ale, fermented down mostly dry, but it adds some character without adding any body, and i suspect thats how they got this so strong but kept it so drinkable. baked bran muffin and breakfast bread, subtle cooked apple and honey, light metallic minerals and then a candied sort of thing before the yeast, earthy and while refined at the same time, not as interesting on the yeast side as i have gotten used to from these guys, but an excellent beer overall from a quality standpoint, and a cool addition to their portfolio of beers. i hope to see more new ones too, this was great!
