Tried about 3 years ago and realized I did not do a review. A golden, hazy, bubbly saison with tons of fruity and spicy aroma leaving the glass. My first saison and I was so intrigued by Le Merle that I named my dog after it. Truly a great saison for warm, cold or whatever weather/ time of the year.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip
A: Golden orange with a 1.5-finger head
S: Light wheat, cereal, a hint of fruit esters and Belgian yeast
T: Matches the nose adding a bit of pronounced citrus and light hop notes
M: Medium-bodied with pleasant carbonation
O: Refreshing, surprisingly light on its feet and with good balance. Fits the style well; enjoyable on a warm summer afternoon
