Perhaps the best beer at Mondial de la Biere, and a gold medal winner too.

Poured a hazy yellow with a large fluffy white head that had more lace than a bride on her wedding night. Big, big, big tree fruit aromas... apple, pear and nectarine, with zest orange, peppery yeast and hay. Tastes like sunshine in a glass. Lots of fruity esters with pineapple, grapefruit, orange, mango and pear. In fact, its almost all fruit, but its a wonderful symphony of flavour, and is still supported capably by a peppery spice and slight wheat tanginess. Medium, dry, crisp mouthfeel is perfect.

Hats off! Trou de Diable would be wise to add this to their regular rotation.

Appearance - Pours a slightly cloudy nectar gold with two fingers of frothy white head.

Smell - Traditional Belgian yeast, clove, spice, honey, bready malts, citrus.

Taste - Very similar to the aromas... yeast, spice, clove, malts, honey and citrus. Maybe a touch of passion fruit.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with a high level of carbonation. Effervescence leaves a nice tingle on the roof of the mouth. Dry finish.

Overall - A nice Saison with traditional flavours and aromas. Very refreshing and enjoyable.

The beer comes in a hazy orange color.

On the flavor, the beer hits of sweet ripe fruit, peaches, oranges. This is along with a medium amount of spice and pepper. A sweetness complements the beer without being cloying in any sense.

A substantial, yet refreshing saison.
