2012 vintage
This belgian saison pours a hazy orange straw color with a fizzy white head that lasts throughout the pour and leaves some lacing. The aroma is a funky refreshing blend of apricots, belgian yeast, lemon peel, and wine (reminded me of pinot grigio). The mouthfeel is light, refreshing, and effervescent; perfect for the style. The flavor follows the nose and reminds me much more of a carbonated white wine than an ale. This was very good. I want to try a fresh bottle now to see the difference.
