A fluffy, off-white head bursts forth and sticks around with great retention. Golden orange in color. Smells fruity and tangy with green apples, lemon, grapes and citrus rind. Some vanilla is also noticed. Tastes sweet and fruity with more vanilla, some peppercorn, taffy, and a dim bitterness. Somewhat dry but still retains a softness. Light and airy for the most part. Not overly exciting, but not exceptionally dull either.

25cl Bottle: best before 15 June 2013, poured into a Westmalle chalice during Aug 2012.

Slight haze to my golden/orange pour: off-white crown of thin bubbles.

Fruit esters hit the nose, followed by yeast, malt molasses and some mixed spices: interesting.

The taste is a lovely blend of flavours too: expected some farm yard feel to it and wasn’t disappointed, this had character in buckets. Malts, yeast and hops all vied for position and combined to produce a well balanced and flavoursome beer that I’ll be re-visiting again and again.

I had this as part of a beer incentive program at my local bar. They served this in a fluted glass.

On the pour I got very minimal foam. The foam goes down almost immediately.

I smell a little bit of sour and some horse blanket. I like the belgian yeastiness.

This was a good choice on a warm evening. The belgian quality with a minor presence of hops plays well. I like the lighter quality in the feeling of this beer. Overall, I would say that this is a good example of a saison.

Pours thick golden, with dense bubbles under a 2-finger head.
Smells of herbals and yeast, some hay.  
Nice spicy zing to the taste, lemon peels with spices. Some grass.
Not bad body. For me, any bitter funk  here lingers as opposed to fades away. But not overly abrasive.  
I enjoy the style, have access to very few top examples. For me this is a nice example of a saison.

Served from tap into a St. Feuillien oversized wine glass (proper!). Poured a hazy yellow-orange with a two finger white head that subsided to one finger very slowly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, grain, spice, banana, fruit, and earth. The flavor was of sweet malt, fruit, banana, spice, earth, and grain. It had a light feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. Everything that people enjoy in a good saison was definitely present in this brew. However, the aroma wasn't as well balanced as I would have hoped as the earthy note kind of dominated it. The flavor did a much better job of balancing out and keeping your palate happy. The banana touch was quite nice which added a much needed amount of sweetness. Worth trying if you have not done so already as it is a pretty good saison, just not in the upper-tier.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an orange-ish color and a cloudy consistency. There was an inch and a half of creamy, fairly long-lasting head. Not much lacing.

S: A slightly muted aroma of yeast, spices, and some malt.

T: Tasted of Belgian yeast, light spices (cloves), malt, a little hops, and a very definite grassy quality. A somewhat uneven flavor in my opinion (the grassiness lowers its rating).

M: A well-carbonated beer with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Not a bad beer, but certainly not my first choice for a saison.

3.3/5  rDev -13.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance is gold with a big-bubbled white head that leaves no lace.

Smell is banana and clove esters. A metallic note.

Taste is also heavy on the clove and banana esters, coriander, like a hefe weizen. Very odd, that I just had the Urthel saison, thought it was odd for a saison, and it was almost the same. Less biting sweetness here, better overall integration, but still notably sweet and banana like. A little ethanol, as well as some earthy hops.

Mouthfeel is dry, light bodied.

Drinkability is okay, still more sugar and banana than I like in the style, not bad though, not nearly as good as their tripel, one of my all time favorites.
