A - A huge three finger's worth of big chunky fluffy airy slightly off-white colored head... Slight retention gives was to full airy moderately thick lacing... The color is a vibrant orangish gold... Loaded with swirling moderate paced carbonation...
S - Brett is at the forefront and dominates... Some lemon zest... Some yeasty notes... Clove... Some grassy notes as well...
T - The palate is dominated by brett, yeast and clove... A touch of banana... Not too much in terms of the complexity I associate with the style... Fairly one dimensional...
M - On the lighter side of medium bodied... Loaded with fizzy carbonation... The finish displays just the slightest touch of dryness...
D - Not a bad Saison, but a bit of a disappointment overall as this one is average at best... Perhaps a bit more time in the bottle would help meld the flavors and provide much needed complexity...

3.55/5 rDev -10.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Pours half finger of head on a clear light golden colored body.
The aroma is smokey applesauce, soap, lemon and pear all mixed up in a nice way.
The taste is sharp, approaching bitter. Retains bright fruit: apple and pear.
Crisp texture with moderate carbonation.
Pleasant and enjoyable.

The first pour was nearly clear yellow with a big pillowy head. The last pour was opaque, swimming with yeast.
A pleasant fruitiness dominates the nose. Apple and pear, rich malt, slight vinegar-brett-funk.
Rich complex malts in taste, hints of citrus, ripe juicy pear, brett-funk and concrete dryness.
Extraordinary carbonation, better than champagne. Juicy, with a very long dry finish.
Excellent farmhouse ale from Tomme and the Abbey.
