    Purchased at the Hunger Mountain Coop in Montpelier, VT. Pours a cloudy amber colour with a fizzy off-white head. Organic aromas with some spices. The taste seems pretty organic as well, with some mild sourness, citrus notes, spices and malts. Some very light roasted malt shows up later, and in the aftertaste. Kind of unbalanced, all over the place with not enough spices to be called a "bière de Noël".

    Pours deep rust, far darker than I had imagined from a saison, with an off-white head that laces in small specks all around. Aroma is earthy with some fruit. Fruit aroma translates to flavor (date/raisen/fig) with some spiciness to round it out; almost sherry-like. Moderately sweet with hops coming through to balance the sweetness. Finishes fairly dry. Mouthfeel is medium-full with a light amount of carbonation.

    Darker and spiced a little differently than most saisons. A touch of chocolate, light holiday spices, farmhouse yeast and hops. Nicely balanced and tasty. Slightly over carbonated but otherwise really nice.

    A muddied brown colored beer with a small foamy off white head. There's no hang time. It settles fairly quickly. There's no lacing. Thenose is dominate. Fruity and yeasty. Same fruit with a grassy hop presence. Very interesting. Medium bodied.

    This is one heavy beer, yet very delicious at the same time. It is also very un-saison-like. A dark pour with plenty of fruit and spice aromas. There is a bit of earthiness here, but not much. At 10%, the drinkability it goes down, but the flavour mixture here is superb. The chocolate flavour and honey sweetness is balanced nicely by the spice and sour tones

    Sampled Christmas Eve 2008. Ruby colored with a light tan head. Strong aromas of fruit and spice. Medium bodied with slightly sour and spicy flavors, but thin and muted. Disappointingly one-dimensional and timid.

    Was on a roll till i did this one. Poured a clody brown color good lacing. Aroma was of ginger and i am not a ginger fan. Flavor was overwelmed by ginger, some pine and other spices. This was way overspiced.

    Murky brown color, slight orange hues. Rather large head for 10% ABV, great lacing too. Aroma was of strong cloves, other fruits, other spices and pine, vinegar, almost a flemish sour aroma. The flavor was spice overload, cloves most notable, cinnamon, nutmeg, even roses. Alcohol was not bad for this level, hid well. Some slight sour aspects to the aftertaste. Mouthfeel was slightly acidic. The spicing was way too overdone, leaving this one in disappiontment.

    Beer poured dark brown with surprisingly big head. Aroma could be detected from across the table. Flavor was seriously spicy, lots of ginger. Very sweet from brown sugar and a touch of barnyard and a strong burn at the end. I can't say I was crazy about it, but a very unique brew.
