year or so old 750ml bottle into a teku glass.

golden color with a very big saisony type head. smell of lemon and coriander. taste is quite clean and crisp. not that funky... a lot of floral elements to it. slight sugar sweetness here too. quite complex. a tad yeasty as well. finishes with a slight bitterness that works very well. body is light and refreshing. carbonation is medium.

overall true to style and just a well made saison.

A slightly hazy golden in color with 2 full fingers of head which dissipated slowly and left some seems amount of lacing behind.
Aroma is sweet and floral.. Honey, tea leaves, flowers for sure, white pepper, Belgian spicy yeast.
Flavor is mellow and honestly very floral.. Nowhere near as sweet as it smells.. Tasting flower petals, a slight banana mellowness.. But yeah flowers. Medium body with just enough fizz to keep it interesting.
This is probably one of the best tasting saisons I have ever had. My first thought upon smelling "oh great another saison that tastes like a tripel."..... Nope! This is mellow with a dry finish and very very floral.
