2010 Sofie - 12 oz. bottle

Apperance: Yellow and cloudy with almost champagne like carbonation. Really a beautiful pour. One of my favorite things about Saisons and this one is spot on.

Smell: Tons of orange zest, Belgian yeast, and pepper. Very fruity as well.

Taste: Right up front you get the orange zest, the Belgian yeast, pepper, and a bit of sourness. Finishes off dry with a hint of vanilla and oak.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth and creamy, with a touch of dryness. The carbonation is perfect.

Overall: This is my favorite beer made. I can drink it anytime of the year, month, or day and be perfectly content. I love everything it has to offer, and will revisit often. This is what a Saison should be.
