Poured into a tulip.

A: Golden yellow with a nice frothy head that slowly dissapated.

S: Orange peel and ever so sight level of funk.

T: Sweet, green apples, slight pepperyness, and some belgian aromatics.

M: Medium/Full body, it still feels like its in your mouth after drinking

O: A pretty solid belgian ale. I fell in love with Saison Dupont and hold all other saisons to that standard. A bit on the fuller body sweet side that i didnt care for too much.

I've been waiting on this guy for a long time, Costco had a holiday special a few months ago, 3 bottles (750ml) for the price of 2, good deal. Served in a snifter.

A: Pours a hazy golden color with a nice 3/4-1 inch soapy white head that lasts for a few minutes before shrinking down to a thin white layer with bits of lacing. Constantly bubbling.

S: Nice aroma going here, wheat, malts, yeast, floral hues, hops, the combination of these gives a champagne like scent, has citrus notes to it, very sweet,

T: Good sweetness to it, very smooth, yeast and wheat flavors predominate, with hints of spices and has a good hop presence to it, very well balanced, very delicious,

M: Has moderate amounts of carbonation and is full bodied, very well balanced in all aspects, has little bitterness from its mild hops and spices, it is quite enjoyable.

O: Overall the wait paid off, this beer is a bit expensive, but for the deal I got, it's in amazing gig, but cost aside, this is a great beer, I mean it's perfectly balanced, rich, robust, and smooth all at the same time, great with food, excellent craftsmanship, a must try for everyone.

Poured into a tall tulip glass.

Aroma: A light malt nose. None of the clove-y esters one would expect from a saison. Almost no aroma.

Appearance: Yellow-orange, with ruby highlights at the edges. Nice whipped meringue head.

Taste: Malty, sweet, and clove-t. Close to style, but a bit harsh.

Mouthfeel: Sharp.

Overall: I like this beer, and have it every chance I get. But when I finally set down to review it, it didn't hit the style notes I thought it would. It's perhaps a too-commercialized version of a saison.
