The initial pour left a very thick fluffy white head – like whipped egg whites. Most of the head faded quickly but it did leave a pretty thick ring around the top of the tulip glass.
Color was a dark chestnut-brown, & the carbonation was mild but present.
I felt like I got a lot of funk out of the nose, some dark cherry, barnyard, & earth. Taste was very dry, and rather light bodied given its coloring.
Actually, I found that it tasted more like a wild ale than a Saison. Maybe it was the age of the bottle?
Either way it was an incredibly enjoyable bottle. and at 4.9% an easy one person drink. Like the bottle says: Cheers and Mahalo plenty!
