4.7/5  rDev +10.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Served on tap at the Thirsty Monk.

Poured a hazy dark orange with a solid white head with amazing lacing.

Aroma of fresh fruit with the likes of pears and peaches. There is just the slightes hint of barnyard funk which is enough to keep it interesting.

The flavor is very juicy with the same peaches and pears present in the aroma but much more powerful here. More funkiness but it plays nicely in the background. The fruityness lasts throughout but transitions wonderfully into an absolutely bone dry finish like a great Saison should.

Overall, this is one of the best Saisons I have experienced and a truly world-class beer. Glad I was able to try it.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Glowey straw gold beer. Giant cream colored head. Sticks to the glaass like cream cheese cake frosting. Big clumpy goodness.

S: Aroma reminds me of a more tart orval. Sweet dandelions, warm summer farmy smells, soft orangy citrus, wild stinky yeast, very floral.

T: Very dry, floral, puckering lemon rind tart, sweet crackery breadiness. Moderately acidic. Nicely done.
