Intro: A nice looking 640ml black bottle that was capped and waxed. Bottle was one out of a total of 250. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A hazy amber copper orange colour with a big three finger off white head that disappeared almost immediately to nothing other than a fast replenishing ring around the glass while leaving no lacing.
Aroma: Tart, grape, plum, fig, apple and wood.
Taste: Tart, lightly sour, plum skin, prunes, apple juice, wine, whisky, oak and some light spice and booze on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation.
Overall: Self described Saison… well definitely not of the classic type, but perhaps closer to a Belgian Strong Pale Ale. The aroma was nice and made me think of wonderful fruity sours, but taste, while not as fruity, has an interesting light whisky finish.
