12oz bottle poured into tulip glass. Bottled on 1/09/13.

A-Poured a huge dense and foamy white head. A mildly hazy golden yellow body.

S-The nose is very appealing. Nice spice notes of coriander and black pepper. With the spices it contains earthy clove, banana, baked bread and orange rind. All these different aromas mix in very well with one another.

T-The taste of this beer is amazing all around and follows suit with the smell. Citrus, coriander and clove. At the end of the palate has a dank earthiness with the banana like sweetness coming out. Very enjoyable balanace with the malts and hops. Finishes with a refined bitterness that does not last long.

M-Medium, effervescent body. Not as dry of a finish as I was expecting. But overall what you expect from the style.

O-Highly enjoyable saison that does not disappoint. Pick up a 750 or 4 pack now...

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

Appearance: It has a nice hazy light golden/yellow color to it. It has a nice thick white head that dies down moderately slow and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of lemon, citrus, peppery spices, cloves and belgian yeast.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some lemon upfront with some citrus notes, cloves, some pepper and some yeast.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium/high carbonation with a very nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with great flavors and aromas. Very refreshing on a hot day.

Poured from a 750ml bomber into a Fantôme snifter.

A: Very golden, attractive.

S: Classic saison.

T: Clean, crisp, belgian saison. Almost perfect taste, and definitely hitting the nail on the head for a widely-available, higher-alcohol saison.

M: Light enough for the warmer months and yet warming enough for fall.

O: A fantastic belgian farmhouse saison. Of the 4 saisons I've had, this is certainly up there among the best of 'em. Highly recommended.
