Appearance: My can produced lots of sediment and floaters in the pretty apricot body, but not much head, no lace, and went flat pretty fast. (in contrast to a side-by-side of Rayon Vert by Green Flash which is explosive and shampoo lacy.)
Smell: Complex aroma: husky grains, stone fruit, fall orchard, melon, white pepper, spice and honey.
Taste: Grows more intense and floral, starting with a bready opening, that frames the Belgian complex character, with melon, stone fruit, honey, hay, lots of honeysuckle and flowers, and white pepper/herbal spice, then the peppery/herbal flavors and honey intertwine in a long, long finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, great finish, with low carbonation
Drinkability: Honey sweet, with balancing complexity and bitter notes. Great with soft cheese, in tonight's case, Camembert.

Well, I feel lots of bitterness, which almost overwhelm everything. However the bitterness lower down when it is warmer, and when finish the drink , there seem to be flavor in your month.
The aroma is the best thing about this beer , smells attractive, attracting you to get closer, though at the first sip, it's really bitter.
I don't feel the spiciness mentioned by others, nor other tastes like citrous or something else, because the bitterness is just too strong ):

St. Feuillien Saison has a medium, off-white head, and a hazy, brilliant (almost luminescent) orange appearance, with very noticeable and relatively large, brown chunks at the bottom. Not much lacing, here. The aroma is of pungent, spicy, horse-blanket, and musty grains. Taste is of all that with maybe white pepper and basil? Bitterness is low. Mouthfeel is medium, and St. Feuillien Saison finishes semi-dry and delicious. No complaints, only plaudits, from me.

Poured from a 11.2 oz can into a Duvell tulip. Moderate hand. AA-170 stamped on the bottom, whatever the hell that means. No date.
A: Cloudy, honey-colored body with a moderate amount of visible sediment. 1.5 fingers off-white head with ok retention. Light lacing.
S: Sweet, fruit-forward, slightly musty yeast. Apple, pear. Hay. Honey. Some grape, peach.
T: Slightly spicy, sweet yeast opens. Fruity maltiness develops and yields to some hopping bitterness on a semi-dry finish. mild alcohol presence. The aftertaste draws out with fruit, malt and a slight tang.
M: Moderate carbonation, moderate body. Less carb and more heft than your average saison.
O: If you prefer your saisons malt-forward, fruity and substantial on the palate, then you should enjoy this. Me, I'm thinking more autumn-time drinking for this one.
