22 oz bomber poured into oversized Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a cloudy golden yellow with 4+ fingers of foamy white head. This dissipates slowly to a 1cm head that persists for a long time.

S - I get the typical Belgian yeast aroma with citrus, clove, and spice in the nose.

T - The Belgian yeast is prominent in this with a large amount of clove, lemon, pepper, and a bit of grassiness.

M - The body is light with a high amount of carbonation. It's very crisp and refreshing, as saisons should be. Definitely a great hot summer day brew.

O - One of my favorite saisons...I'm glad I finally got around to trying this. Refreshing and drinkable while maintaining a good amount of complexity.

Poured from the bomber into a Ommegang Belgian tulip glass.

A vigorous pour produces a massive head that is light, airy and pale white in color. It persists well and leaves an abundance of lace all over the bottle and atop the body. The body is a cloudy orange and golden.

On the nose I initially get a pungent, boozy malt smell, but this is followed by a grape-like sweetness and some toffee aromas. There's also a bit of spice, although I can't identify what exactly.

This is tasty. I continue to get the sweetness from the nose, the wine-like grape flavor as well. There's an earthy quality to the taste as well as a bit of spice that could be coriander but I'm not sure. Citrus also weaves in and out.

I notice that this saison is much lighter than many I've had lately. It's refreshing and has a wine quality to it. There's a good level of sweetness but it isn't overbearing or distasteful. The finish is clean and semi-dry with a bit of a yeasty effervescence.

This saison stands out to me for it's lightness and the grape and wine characteristics. It's a beer I could drink on the hottest of days and still enjoy.

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

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a simple glass tumbler. Gentle hand. No clear date on the bottle. Enjoyed this many times, but never reviewed.

A: Cloudy, pale yellow with a faint tint of green. Towering 3+ fingers of rocky, white head. Good retention. Light lacing.

S: Inviting, mild Belgian yeast spice. Coriander. Light hay. Faint floral notes. Lemon. Noble-type hops.

T: A rustic, lightly musty spice opens with the development of a balancing hop bitterness. A bit of fruit and tartness add some depth. Fairly dry finish. Light alcohol presence.

M: Moderately high carbonation with a moderate body. Drinks nicely despite a solid effervescence.

O: Refreshing and easy drinking saison with a deceptively stout ABV, but no arguments here. Good balance. Warrants the regular revisits I throw its way.

Prost!
