Poured a hazy amber producing a relentless head-- typical of bottle conditioned beers. The head was a wonderful sculptured iceberg of froth lasting what seemed like forever. At long last it decreased to a blanket covering the surface of the beer.
The nose was mild but with a hops and citrus note.
Flavor was mild with strong notes of hops and citrus. The flavor also had a life to itself on the palate that of a tangy citrus, but not an overwhelming presence.
A nice clean finish that ended and a linear decay of the beer's flavor.
Mouthfeel was very cordial.
Overall this Saison was a very enjoyable libation. Not particularly strong or robust flavor, but a mild yet tangy flavor.

3.76/5 rDev -2.1%

From the 11.2 can stamped AA-114-08:41. Sampled on March 8, 2014. I saw this in both the expensive bottle and the cheaper can and went with the cheaper can.
Golden yellow pour with some cloudiness but otherwise fairly clear. Quick-lived white fizzy head and moderate carbonation.
The aroma brings out a meaty-fruit character and more precisely peaches. It feels like it is going to be very juicy. Otherwise I get some biscuit malts, light yeast, and little to no hop bite.
Light to medium body but overall refreshing.
Aggressive biscuit malt and peach character at the start and some vague pepper and spice in the background. Clean finish. Very easy to drink.

Poured from a 33 cl can into a teku.
A: Golden hue. Pours a 1 finger, bubbly, white head. Settles pretty quickly, but leaves a foam blanket and some nice beer ring lacing.
S: Yeast, with very light hints of orange citrus.
T: Yeast, apricot, orange, banana, and a touch of raspberry.
M: Light and bready. Pungent finish that lingers on the palate.
D: Almost sessionable, but a little too bready.
Atmosphere is pretty nice. Decent head, and some persistent lacing. Nose is yeasty with various fruity components. Yeasty, with tropical and citrus fruits. Very bready. Overall, this is a good quaff.

3.99/5 rDev +3.9%

Bottle: a big and solid brown 750mL bottle with a classic old-school label. Looks like quality.
Appearance: pours a vibrant, hazy amber yellow with plenty of fine carbonation. Plenty of small floaties racing throughout the profile thanks to the spritzy carbonation. A white fluffy head hangs around the one-finger mark for a couple of minutes before settling to a solid ring. Almost no lacing. A great looking beer.
Aroma: quite mild on the nose - some bread malts, orchard fruits and mild spice. Not really all that much to it.
Taste: an astonishing saison. Belgian yeasts, orchard fruits - specifically apples and pears - pepper, spices and some astringent citrus. A true pleasure.
Aftertaste: flavours hang about for quite a time. A good sessional beer, but also something that one could share and chat for the evening on the back deck.
Mouth feel: perhaps a bit too spritzy for the style. Very easy to put back, which is a bit of an issue when it is 6.5% ABV and AU$13 a bottle. None-the-less, good drinking.
Overall: not the best Saison I have had to date but still a pretty darn good beer. When the price of AU$13 a 750mL bottle is taken into account, I'd say this one goes pretty close to the top.
