From the corked bottle into a weizen glass poured the hazy golden orange beer with a large, clunky, chunky, thick, white head that seemed to last & last. The aroma was a light combination of malt, grain & fruit with a little funk that disappeared. A yeasty, warm, fruity, malty, & wonderfully complex taste is pleasing. Thought I noticed a touch of tart? Slightly dry mouthfeel and so, so easy to drink. If I could only drink one beer for the rest of my life I would be happy with this one. It's that good.

Poured from a 750ml into a Corsendonk Glass. Very Beautiful strong white head with a bit of a haze which was perfectly acceptable for the style of beer.

The smell is fruity with a slight yeasty bite,

The taste was very clean & crisp with front end fruit notes standardly expected with the Saison style.

All in all a great rendition of Saison. I have had few that match this version.

A gift from Brett, the cellarman at the Sharp Edge in Pittsburgh, who knows how important the furtherance of The CANQuest (TM), especially with the Craft CAN revolution.

From the Slimline CAN: "Product of Belgium"; "Belgian Farmhouse Ale".

The Crack revealed another brimful CAN and I CANnot say enough good things about the trend. The Glug created a brief finger of tawny head with low retention. Color was a hazy yellowish-orange. Nose smelled deeply of peppery coriander, along with lemon zest, musty yeast, and an herbal/flowery scent, like lilac or lily. Zounds! I am so in love with the idea that they put something like this into a CAN! Mouthfeel was thin, not watery per se, but soft and caressing. Taste was riotous with so many flavors all trying to take hold on my tongue. The herbal floweriness worked in tandem with the lemon zestiness to give it a lemon tart taste that was reinforced by the black pepper spiciness and the musty yeast. I felt like I was drinking a liquid lemon poppy muffin. Finish, as you might imagine, was bone-dry. Boy, if this won't quench your thirst on a warm, humid 4th of July, I CANnot imagine what it would take.

Appearance: Ah, those Belgian masters of good looking beer - this one pours a cloudy apricot nectar color with a massive head that leaves clumps of lacing

Smell: Lots going on in the aroma, with husky grains, stone fruit, melon, white pepper spice and a hint of honey

Taste: Rather Germanic in a sense, with a bready opening and some grassy hops in the back; in the middle, however, there is a lot of Belgian character, with melon/stone fruit, honey/candi sugar, and white pepper/herbal spice; after the swallow, the peppery/herbal flavors and honey sweetness linger into the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with rather high carbonation

Drinkability: Not a classic Saison, but a very interesting beer that blends qualities of various Belgian styles (BPA, BIPA and Saison) with a pilsner; the result is a bit sweeter than typical but overall, this beer is very, very good

Thanks, mrmiles, for putting this into my Secret Santa package
