When I am out looking for new things, sometimes I grab a beer style I don't normally buy. I do this because I am all for:
1) good beer, 2) new imbibing experiences.
I am a big fan normally of Belgian Tripels, and a style of Belgian Ales called Saisons (seasonals) was what got me curious.
I was in a store and saw a well known, obscure, not to mention "expensive" seasonal release known as Phantôme Hiver (winter). I decided to try it out, pairing another Saison known as Urthel with it.
The results and experiences below, probably will forever etch my memory... to never have this style of beer more than likely EVER again.
