Poured a gorgeous semi-cloudy yellow with two fingers of gorgeous white head and ample bubbles sticking to the side of the glass. Quite beautiful to look at. Scents of apricot, barnyard funk, slight pear, faint sour notes and undertones of bubblegum. A very pleasing aroma, hits all the classic saison notes perfectly. Taste begins with Belgian barnyard funk, slight pear, some faint hints of bubblegum, slight hints of apricot pit, sour wild yeast notes, which are very faint but come through a bit stronger on the finish and become more prominent as the beer warms, some slight straw, very faint peach, slight grassiness and a bit of slight grain on the rather dry finish. A deceptively complex flavor profile that changes as the beer warms, opening up new flavors, but never becoming too much. It retains an easy drinkability and is amazingly refreshing. Mouthfeel is light bodied, with moderate carbonation, aiding the ease with which you can drink this beer. Overall its an excellent saison, one of, if not the best that I have tasted. It hits all the perfect notes and is a complex, refreshing, joyous experience.

750ml bottle, bottled on 10/21/2013. Poured into an unlabeled snifter today, 1/20/2014.
App- cloudy yellow with orange hue, very effervescent white head requiring some time to pour. Lots of retention and lacing. Very pretty.
Smell- crisp non-descript tartness with no hint of fruit character. Yeast and associated spiciness. Floral character. Boring.
Taste- Crackers, slight spiciness, pepper. A little bit of butter. Not that much going on.
Mouthfeel- Thinner bodied, solid carbonation. A bit watery. Very dry finish.
Overall- Not that interesting, nothing stands out while drinking this beer.
