3.53/5  rDev -8.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

A: poured from a 12.7 oz bottle into a pint glass, amber with a huge soapy white head that dissipates leaving spotty lacing, hugely cloudy

S: funky and floral with a slight smell of ripe fruit, apples

T: sweet and sour but odd, has a slight fruity quality, apple and pear

M: thin and watery

O: Not as much hop as expected from reading and looking at the label. It's a unique flavor that combines some elements of a blond and a sour. Try if you like cider.

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

Outstanding first impression. Never over your head, finely made and champagne like.

A: Appearance even from a 2 year old bomber is much the best part. Apricot color, hazed, with energetic head and pin point bubbles, and gobs of lace. Like a true belgian.
S: A bit too laid back for me, but very fine and inviting with an original orange/coriander/pepper/lemon rind core. Champagne like. Tingly.
T: More here, at cellar temperature, subtle but refined, layered complexity. Follows the smell with a bit more hay and grassiness mid-palate, and again the white pepper in the finish.
MF: A bit sticky, soapy mouthed, perhaps due to the age or yeast. The only ding. Like a cleaner, crisper ending. Recommend at cellar temp.

Well made of great ingredients.

Generous extra from a trade a while back with sarge27. Enjoyed from a lost Abby teku. The bottle had some funk on the to of the bottle by the cork but opened without incident. Brew poured a semi transparent orange with a generous frothy head Anne chunky lacing. Nose is a bit grassy with some fruity highlights of the apple pear family. Taste follows suit a this one is an earthy fruity saison. Easy drinker with prickly carbonation. Not mind blowing, but an enjoyable beverage as the weather starts to show signs of spring.

Rich golden colored with great clarity. Brussels lacing. A thin layer of white foam barely covers the top. I smell pale malt and floral hops. The mouth is moderately carbonated and crisply refreshing. There's plenty of pale malt and floral hops in the taste. The Belgian hops really kick in on the fade.

Serving type: on-tap
