Bottle from awesome girlfriend from a Boston bottle shop. Waxed bottle... and an awesome brass knuckles in the top on the cap of the wax. Never seen anything melted into the cap wax before. Nice!
Pours a light mustard color with a 2 inch head and some decent lacing.
Nose is a lot of lemon grass with a little bit of farm yard in it... almost a bit of brett nose.
Taste... is actually quite boring. Almost everything drops out, the lemon, the funk, all muted, but still there. Everything is toned down. Really disappointed in this. After all the reviews I was excited to try this.
Mouthfeel is quite nice... very creamy finish, mouthfeel is one of the best I have had in a saison. medium body.

overall though. disappointed.

3.63/5  rDev -5%

Sample: 1 bottle 2012

A: Pours an intense white and foamy head, straw yellow in color, heavy internal carbonation, quite cloudy throughout

S: Rather sweet bouquet, lots of fruit and yeast, some mild spicy and floral/herbal elements, strong fragrance overall

T: Similar to the nose, fruity and yeasty, but certainly disappointing, hardly flavorful, definitely lacking towards the finish, sweet and sour at once, one dimensional, however

M: Smooth, strong sour bite, not lingering, moderate fruity aftertaste, not drying or overpowering on the palate

O: Decent, but lacking flavor and complexity, nice look, but could be more smooth, unfortunately not what I was expecting

3.75/5  rDev -1.8%

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, hazy, gold in color, high carbonation, clear

Smell: apple, hay, and Belgian spices

Taste: apple, hay, and Belgian spices and sugars with slight earthy bitterness at the end

Mouthfeel: sweet with slight bitterness, medium-light bodied with low carbonation

Overall: I enjoyed this saison. It is above average and the bitterness at the end is just enough to balance out the sweetness. The alcohol is well hidden. I would probably pick this up again.
