Picked this up at a Cora supermarket in Luxembourg. Cloudy golden-orange pour with a beautiful three finger fluffy white head with great retention and decent lacing. Nice citrusy, earthy, complex nose with hints of grass, pear, yeast, banana, lemon, biscuit, caramel, and some subtle orange and clove. The taste follows suit with lots of complexity as well. Hints of white pepper, lemon zest, pear, caramel, Belgian yeast, grass, orange, clove, and some subtle barnyard. The mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing and incredibly drinkable, getting more enjoyable as it warmed. Overall, I'm kicking myself because this is one of those readily available and affordable beers that you sometimes just take for granted. I'm not a huge fan of Saisons, but have recently been exposed to some really good ones. I'll definitely be stocking up next time I'm in Belgium!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Hazy dark amber color with yellow and amber hues. Off-white 2-finger pillowy head. Medium+ retention with spotty lacing.

Banana, clove, melon, citrus zest, clean malt, buscuit, mild mustiness.

Banana, clove, melba toast, very mild hop bitterness.

Medium+ bodied, but thins out slightly in the mid palate before picking up again in the finish.

Nicely balanced with a long finish. Alcohol is well integrated in the beer.

1PT 9.4 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a tulip glass
Bottled in 2012 according to the cork

A - It is amber. Actually, it is almost orange with golden highlights. Like most saisons, I poured about three quarters of a glass of off-white head.

S - I get some spicy Belgian yeast. I smell some pear, too.

T - The taste is spicy and has banana and clove. I notice a little of that pear, as well.

M - It has a champagne feel.

O - This is a nice saison. It is kind of lackluster in flavor, but it is still decent.

11.2 fl oz. can, with a freshness code printed on the bottom. Definitely not about to look it up. My first encounter with this brewery and this beer, saw a single can at the local beer store. Trying to expand my palate for Belgian style beers, so here goes.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.

A - Pours a nice bright hazed peachy orange colored body with about two fingers of creamy fluffy white head on top.

S - The nose is surprising. Nice earthy caramel malt presence, crisp citrus / pine hop presence, some lemon peel, grainy corn / wheat smells, and some herbal spice rack notes.

T - Taste is a different story, with not nearly as much pine hop presence. More of an earthy maltiness, grainy corn, and lager yeast reminiscent of some India imported lagers I've had before. Not really getting any of those traditional Belgian elements like banana, clove, or funk at all.

M - Feel is crisp and clean, with a bit of of a sticky sugary sweetness lingering on the palate. Bit of a coppery / metallic aftertaste.

Overall, not a bad beer by any means, but probably not a very traditional saison based on my experience with the style, and not exactly high on it's delivery of flavor and complexity. Still, it is a well crafted and approachable beer, and I look forward to trying more from Belgium's Brasserie St. Feuillien.

Gotta love canned Belgian beer in the summer weekend cooler!

Pours hazed and dull looking apricot, the off white head is not long lasting, but does leave a layer of low sheeting and a fine bubble film.

Fruity nose with some coriander and mild spicing.

On the palate this is a weird one, good thing saison is such a broad ranging style...I get a variety of flavors with pepper, corainder, licorice, allspice, and ripe fruit all coming to mind.

Moderate hops tightining up things in the finish.

Not my favorite saison but still happy to have given it a try.

Went pretty well with some minerally raw clams.

On tap at Wurstküche in Downtown Los Angeles, CA.

Is there a doctor in the building? Cause this beer done knocked Raul out! (like when his baby mama told him that she was expecting). Like Raul's backyard after he uses the John Deer, this damn son of a gun is clean! Like, Natasha Barnard after a shower "clean!"

Raul is intoxicated...
