I have to thank Malto for telling me about this as it is just stunning for its particular style. Yes, right now. Just before the Jets/Indy game today, I made my way to Shoreline to find this one in the back of the store and picked it up with a couple of turkey and swiss heros on the way.
The Saison poured to an unusually big head with a spicy fumes coming forward to meet me as I raised my 50cl glass.
I was knocked back by the exploding taste of coriander spices, lemons, cream, and bitter hops. With all the flavors taking the front of the taste, I found the body to be heavier than most of the other Saisons I have had recently.
I noticed as the Saison warmed up, it actually became less concentrated in its spicy flavors and was easy to access in terms of its mouthfeel.
I consider this to be a great find and probably one of the best Saisons I have ever had. Fantome would be proud we made something this good.

Bottle purchased at the Foodery, Northern Liberties, Philadelphia. Best by date 11/13/14.
Hazy golden body, crowned with a creamy foam head. Very good head retention and lacing, eventually dissipates to a cap and ring.
Very pleasant aroma of light malt, green grassy hops, some tropical fruit notes, brett, and spice.
A very fine tasting saison, with bready malt, lemon and tropical fruit, and interesting yeast flavor, with a strong element of brettanomyces yeast with flavors of band-aid and a little copper penny. It is strongly hopped with notes of green grassy hops that linger in the long finish, and turns progressively bitter, finishing up like orange rind. There is a lot going on in this beer that is hard to describe, but it is definitely complex, interesting, very well balanced, and tasty.
Body is medium and the carbonation is moderate, giving this a slightly creamy mouthfeel.
A saison that is defined by a good yeast strain(s) that is interesting, complex, hoppy, and well balanced. Love getting all this flavor in a brew that is 7.5% ABV--could drink loads of this stuff, but this was my last bottle.
