wonderful tall 11.2 ounce can. Appearance is is straw with good carbonation and moderate white head. Lots of small carbonated bubbles. Aroma is fruity/flowery/boozy. Love the mouthfeel as it seems like the carb continues or maybe even increases. Flavor moves from citrus tang through warming clean dry crisp finish.

Pours a very cloudy, dark golden orange color with a half finger off-white head that immediately fades. Poor retention with minimal to no lacing.

Slightly earthy, musty aroma with a blend of peppery spice, bread/yeast and light fruit esters. Farmhouse funky yeast with grass, straw and barnyard along with pepper, clove, banana bread, and apple. Opens up nicely after warming to an appropriate temperature.

On the lighter end of medium bodied with soft carbonation and a zesty, peppery spice presence that lingers over the subtle funk, yeast and light fruit notes into a slightly dry finish. Strong spice character up front with pepper, coriander and ginger flavor which is nicely complimented by sweet citrus rind toward the finish. Slightly dry and earthy farmhouse presence with grass, straw and very subtle funk. Decent bready yeast character with banana and minimal bubblegum flavor. Sweet ester-y light fruit notes towards the finish, notably apple and pear along with tart and crisp lemon/citrus peel. Well balanced decently complex with a well masked ABV. Refreshing and very easy to drink. Another solid beer from this under appreciated brewery.

Poured from 330mL narrow can into a tulip.

Appearance: murky light-golden hue. Head is a finger of pillowy ivory foam. I think it looks quite nice.

Smell: the aroma is quite light, with a little bit of sweetness and a little bit of funk. There is also a slightly fruity element here. I like the composition, but the intensity is a bit light.

Taste: funky, earthy and a little buttery. Hops are apparent here where they weren't in the aroma; earthy and almost minty. There's definitely a lot more flavor here than the aroma would suggest, but I find it a bit muddled and imbalanced. It's not bad, but it could be better.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a big, well-integrated carbonation that yields a nice, mouth-filling creaminess. Good stuff.

Overall: this beer has an interesting flavor profile, but I don't see myself going back to this well anytime soon.

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!

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.
