A-Pours translucent straw yellow with about an inch of pillowy eggshell white head. Leaves rings of intricate lacing and a small cap of creamy foam.

S-White pepper, parsnips, coriander, hay. Delicate barnyard funkiness, a barely perceptible floral sweetness.

T/M-Medium bodied, with bracing carbonation and a chewy mouth feel. Slick, yeasty earthiness livened up by a bright citrus and cracked pepper note that creeps in mid-palate. The elderflower is very subtle, providing minute levels of floral sweetness on the back end. If you're not looking for it, you probably won't taste it. The finish comes back to life with a short, sharp burst of citrus to undercut the earthy, slick yeast.

O-An interesting, well composed saison.

Best before end 6/2014.

Pours a murky whitish-orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, floral, earth, fruit, spice, and yeast aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, earth, and floral flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of floral bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with great floral aromas and tasty flavors.

Picked this up at a great little beer store in Arlon, Belgium, Miorge Mihoublon. Cloudy golden-yellow pour with a foamy white two finger head with great retention and lacing. Great spicy, fruity, floral nose with lots of lemon zest, grass, white pepper, coriander, and as it warms, elder flowers. The taste follows suit with the elder flowers really emerging as the star. Nice tart lemon, melon, grass, subtle barnyard funk, caramel malt sweetness, white pepper, grapefruit, coriander, and yeast. The mouthfeel is tart and tangy with perfect carbonation, amazing balance, and a nice crisp, dry finish. Overall, this is one flavorful and highly drinkable beer. I'm a big fan of elder flowers so this was right up my alley. Pretty much a non-sour version of Cantillon Mamouche. Highly recommended!

750ml bottle into a tall tulip. I'm not sure how old the bottle is, but it has a June 2012 best before date.

A: Pours a slightly hazy light golden color with two fingers of long lasting head. Active carbonation is evident in the beer, with a lot of bubbles rising from the base of the glass. Lacing looks superb. The head lasts throughout the length of the pour. This is a beautiful beer.

S: Lots of tart yeast aroma upfront, providing an aroma that is both fruity (mainly apricot, but also lemon, and green apple) and floral, I assume from the elderflowers. The beer is mildly funky and earthy providing an almost tonic-like quality to it.

T: Very dry. The tonic quality from the aroma comes off as more of a seltzer water flavor. The fruitiness is still there, mostly lemon peel, yet the apricot flavor does come through a bit. The elder flowers are also still there and provide a nice floral component to the beer. Tis works well with a firm bitterness and light peppercorn flavor. However, the juiciness I got in the aroma is not here nearly as much in the flavor.

M: Quite thin with very strong carbonation.

O: A wonderful Saison. The appearance and aroma are near perfect. The flavor is still quite good, but not nearly as good as the appearance or aroma. It could use a touch more sweetness and I think the beer would be near perfect.
