Brewed in New York and in Belgium (thanks to Brouwerij Duvel Moortgat), this brewery is not like many others. And surprisingly, it was started in the US of A, but focuses on only crafting Belgian-style ales. Using authentic Belgian ingredients and variation recipes, this Saison has somehow managed to gain notoriety within only fourteen or fifteen years. This is not my first time to enjoy this beer, and certainly not my last...

Appearance - Bright yellow/ gold. Almost champagne in color. An active beer that pours okay from the bottle (head seems rather thin and bubbly at first) and then once it sits, really seems to come to life. An amazing head on this beer. Lots of carbonation, too, so the retention is strong as a result. Thick foamy cream. Very appealing!

Smell - Quite spicy on the nose. Immediately, wheat and pale hops stand out. Lots of coriander and lemon, giving it aspects of sourdough. The dry, pale hops really stand out here.

Taste - Bitter orange peel, honey, lemon and other citrusy fruits, plants/ flowers (earthy notes), and yeast. Zesty. Crisp and balanced. The bitter pilsner hops really compliment the sweeter honey/ fruit ingredients. The alcohol is definitely detectable but never overpowering.

Mouthfeel - Smooth and crisp. Almost zaps the tongue. A clean finish that leaves a sugary coating inside the mouth.

Overall - Considering this is a beer brewed out of pure passion versus hundreds of years worth of experience, it is damn impressive. Rich in color and taste, this is a beer to be revered (it's no wonder Duvel Moortgat bought this out). This is beautifully layered and yet represents the style almost perfectly. A great Farmhouse Sasion.
