330ml bottle poured into a Troubadour tulip glass

Look:Slightly murky dark straw-yellow with a stupendous amount of white (not off-white, but white white!) head. Quite bubbly, with poor retention but quite a bit of lacing left behind. Some sediment left int the bottle. though.

Smell: You can tell it's Belgian from the smell of oranges - spices are notably absent, though. Quite yeasty, too - not entirely surprising given the stuff left behind in the bottle. Seems a bit one-dimensional, even when the beer has had time to breathe.

Taste: Reminds me a bit of a fruity hefeweiss - not that this is necessarily a bad thing but it certainly is different. Very malt/yeast-forward with the fruity flavours kicking in towards the end. Almost a wine-like finish - quite dry.

Feel: As others have noted, there's some fairly aggressive carbonation going on here - this isn't a beer you're going to chug unless you plan on belching national anthems afterwards. Get past that and it's slightly syrupy but not excessively so. Some alcohol notes, but nothing overpowering. Quite quaffable under the right circumstances.

Overall: Saisons and their ilk are still a relatively new thing for me, but I have to say I rather like this one - whether intentional or not it manages to combine the good elements of a traditional Belgian beer (whatever that may be) and a good old-fashioned hefeweiss. Interesting, and definitely worth another go.

This beer take a bit of getting used to. Yeast is driving the bus, foot full on the gas. The beer is good, but nothing I would seek out. Very distinctive, but not in a great way.
