The body is a hazy gold filled with bubbles rushing towards the billowy snow white head.

Banana, clove, pepper, orange, wheat.

Sharp and airy on the tongue with a higher carbonation and light body.

Pours a cloudy bright yellow with fizzy white head. Raw wheat, light fruits, and a little funk on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes dry.

Poured into a chalice glass.

A: 4.25 - Pale gold, a tad hazy, with lots of fine streaming bubbles coming from the bottom of the glass. Modest head with nice lacing.
S: 4.5 - Delightful nose with earthy hoppiness, soft yeasty phenols, fruitiness that gives hints of fresh citrus.
T: 4.5 - Initial moderately high bitterness gives way to peppery, very slightly medicinal phenols, with lots of fresh fruitiness, like the nose, tending citrus, perhaps a touch vanilla as well.
M: 4.75 - Soft texture but with plenty of spritzy carbonation. This isn't an undercarbonated one like many US examples.
O: 4.5 - Very, very good. As good as Saison Du Pont. What a glorious beer!
