look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Served bottle poured into a delirium tremens snifter

A - For me this was a classic example of a saison color and clarity. Orangey deep yellow color that poured cloudy with a significant amount of carbonation (exemplified by the almost champagne burst when opened).

S - Boozy sour nose. Definitely has a sour orange citrusy funk the "singes the nostrils" a bit.

T - Sour patch candy feel. Familiar funky saison profile with a sweeter sip. The lemon wood again is apparent with the overall sour citrus taste. Has that high alcohol boozy throat to the finish. For me this is a one serving beer. The large format bottle is best split 3 ways.

M - Great smooth mouthfeel. The sour candy taste makes you want to drink this ale fast. Almost need to remind yourself of the ABV on this one.

O - Never have been the biggest saison fan but overall this is a more than decent example. The beer is tangy, sweet and surprisingly drinkable considering the stats. Love collaboration efforts and this one is for sure worth the price and hangover.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served in godblet. (Chimay signature glass) Vintage bottle dated November 2011.

Appearance: A cloudy orange, heavy heavy bubbles on the body with

Smell: Has a sweet orange smell, honestly one sniff isn't enough. It doesn't make love your nostrils like some other saison but on quality if the hit its more than enough.

Taste: complexity at it's finest, just a little bit sweet with a orange skin feel and no doubt a little bit of lemon. Has lift bitterness and a dose of sour that literally quenches your thirst.

Mouth: medium and smooth, goes down too easy. Zesty finish at the end feels like pure lemon skin coming off a hint dry.

Overall: This is the almost perfect warm weather beer. No joke, paired with a nice cigar in your back yard you really don't need nothing else. Salud!
