Pours a stunningly clear orange from the bottle with a bubbly white head that leaves quickly. Smells of hay, grass, citrus and some yeast. Tastes of oranges, some spice and a touch of earthiness. Light, crisp mouth with a decent amount of carbonation. A very traditional, easy-drinking ale that recalls Saison Dupont.

Served from a small corked bottle into a small tulip.

Appearance: Slightly hazy amber body topped by a good head and lacing.

Very limited Belgium funk in both the taste and the aroma, but Belgian yeast is evident.
Slightly dry. Very clean finish for style. Well hidden ABV.
