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...

From can to St. Feuillien goblet.

Pours a hazy pale orange-golden color with a thin head that fizzed away to a ring.

Muted yeast esters with notes of tart orange and assorted citrus. Almost has a mild hop character in the nose, but with a saison yeast and sweet malts, to boot.

Reminds me of their tripel with clove and coriander notes and esters of citrus and faint banana. Almost BPA like in the fruitiness, but the farmhouse yeast pushes bold wintry spice and piquant notes. There's a portly malt base with both barley and wheat. Finishes a little tight; tight, in that it's strong and roughly short. Carries over with more spice and a fusel chime. Really dries out, however. The carbonation is rewarding, because this beer has a bubble that dances across the tongue. Not big, just coarse, but still barely medium. The body is a little swishy. Okay mouthfeel.

Not the most fantastic saison in the Belgian group. Enjoyable enough. Has great tone.
