3.75/5 rDev +6.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Poured into a Duvel tulip. No freshness date.
A- Pours an orangeish dark amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of sheer surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.
S- Semi-rich Belgian yeast aroma with notes of banana. Slightly soily.
T- The soily quality is even more apparent in the flavor. A bit sweet with more notes of banana and some spice. Kind of one-dimensional but certainly drinkable.
M- Crisp but with also a mildly milky texture. Medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.
O- A serviceable saison that gets the job done even if it's not very complex.

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]
The pour was a clear medium orange with an average (1-2 finger) white pillowy head that settled down to a thick film which lasted throughout and possessed excellent sheets of sticky lacing.
The aroma was of light grain malts, floral hops and a funky Belgian yeast with notes of citrus (orange), coriander, and a somewhat mild fruity ester (banana and apple).
The taste was yeasty right off the bat with a lightly sweet acidic presence and a touch of citrus which was present throughout, the finish was lightly bitter with a hint of citrus peel, a very light tartness and a bit of fruity spiciness at the end. The flavor lingered for a good long while following the swallow, with a nice yeasty spicy taste staying on the taste buds for a tad longer.
Mouthfeel was just beyond light in body and dry in texture with a bold and lively carbonation.
Overall I personally thought this was a rather impressive tasting Saison with a mild fruity bitterness and a spicy yeast taste that finished off this brew wonderfully, making it a very enjoyable drinking experience...
