Pour is a cloudy dark amber with a tight white head. Hint of wood up front, faint note of cheese, and a fair bit of malty grapy sweetness. Taste is the same, this one is a slightly more oaky version of the desay 1, this is a bit cheesier with the same sweet grapy flavor. Body is medium with an assertive carbonation and a slightly dry finish.

I don't get how the Desays are rated so low. Blend 2 is absolutely a top 5 saison for me, alongside Arthur, Brother Soigne, Anna, and Little Lobster on the Prairie.

Served from a chilled 750 mL bottle into a Teku glass. Pours golden, on par for course here. A small, spritzy white head forms via a fairly moderate pour and is retained for some time. Aroma is complex - oak, funk, wild, tropical, it's sort of all over the map but with a common thread to tie it together that, after a few De Garde beers, I can safely call their house yeast/character. The taste is similar - tons of complexity and funk, mild acidity, citrus, and and extreme drinkability that is incredible given the aforementioned characteristics. Great carbonation yields a light borderline prickly mouthfeel.

Overall, this is a world-class saison that is at once complex, refreshing, funky, drinkable, and a true testament to De Garde's brewing ability.
