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

A: Gold and orange hues with an inch head. Good retention and decent lacing

S: Belgian yeast and spices

T: Tastes like it smells. spicy pepper and some clove. A hint of fruit comes though as well. No Alcohol

M: Light and well carbonated

Overall: This is a nice warm weather beer. Well developed flavors and depth but light and delicate. The carbonation and zest make it very refreshing. I will definitely seek this out again in the summer months.

Murky pale straw color--definitely fits the bill. Sweet fruity aroma. Sweet and juicy tasting beer. Bitterness right at the end. Awesome for the summer sun. True to the style and an appropriate alcohol level. Mild carbonation. Flavor is in balance. One of our top five saisons right now.

Welll it appears I get to be " THAT GUY " ONCE AGAIN!.

A - Pours a murky golden with a large three and a half finger white head. Left decen lacing.

S - Banana clove and spices. That's about it.

T - A bit of banana and pepper, followed by a massive urine aftertaste. YUCK!.

M - Light bodied with light bubbly carbonation.

O - Overall, It looked promising, but since it's a part of the Duvel family I am not surprised that it is highly overrated. Tastes like urine. Plain and simple.

2013 re-review in a 12oz bottle - identical to the 750ml review in 2010. Great consistency!

A - Golden hay. Thick frothy head.

S - Very mild. Light yeast, grassy, with some floral notes.

T - Light malt, wildflower honey. A split second touch of hops in the mid profile as it mellows into a soft grain finish.

M - Smooth but buttery.

O - A nice accessible saison.
