A - Arrived in a tulip glass with about a finger's worth of white head which retained well and left some spotty lacing on the glass. The beer is a golden straw color and hazy. I can see lots of carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass.
S - Dominant aroma is a spicy grassiness with hints of yeast.
T - Complex flavor profile. The background is a slightly sweet barnyard funkiness. On top of that I can pick out layers of peppery spice, lemongrass, and an ever so slight touch of alcohol. The alcohol basically puts a point on the other flavors.
M - Nothing outstanding here. Medium bodied with substantial carbonation, although the carbonation doesn't produce anything like a soda water sensation. Finishes dry and cleaner than I would expect.
O - Definitely a good one, although I have to say that at this point Saison and Tripel are both falling in preference next to Dubbels and Quads. I can certainly appreciate this one, but I may be trending away from the style as a whole.
