Pours opaque straw gold with a dense, dense puffy white head that eagerly leaves lacing all around the glass. Initially smells like rock candy, and then the more familiar Belgian saison yeast. Fruity and floral with a small amount of farmhouse notes and vanilla. Tastes great, haven't had this in a while. Fruity and sweet with a clean malt bill and mild hop presence, dry but could be plenty more for the style...again there is a vanilla like candy thing going on and I can only imagine it is from the yeast. The more I drink this the more I think that vanilla thing is actually just some phenol type flavor. Wow great mouthfeel, awsome bottle conditioning by ommegang, other than the fact that this beer is almost 8 percent (and you can't tell it is) it is highly drinkable. Love it.
