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

Aroma: Lots of fruity esters, lemon citrus and apples. Lots of spicy pepper phenols, clove and banana. Clean pale malts, maybe a little pilsner. Orange shows up after a bit and the pepper and clove spices step up as well. Some bitter and floral English hops.

Appearance: Pale straw. Moderately cloudy. Lots of rising bubbles. Head is clean white and pours very tall. Great retention and lots of lacing.

Taste: Light to moderate floral hops followed by black pepper and yeasty phenols, then the fruity orange citrus and apple. Lots of competing flavors here. Some alcohol shows up at the end. Long bitter and slightly tart aftertaste. Also a bit of sulfur, wonder how old this bottle is? A born on date would be nice.

Mouthfeel: Light and fluffy body. Carbonation is moderate, but is smooth and creamy, not stinging.

Overall: Nice, bold and complex brew. The spice dominates the fruitiness here, again perhaps due to the age of this bottle. Even so this is a good overall saison.

Semi hazy copper color with super bright white Crystal-like massive head. Lots of visible carbonation. Some barnyard and wheat on the nose with a bit of nuttiness, clove, underlying notes of banana bread.

Very well blended wave of flavors passes over the tongue and stays together amazing the whole time. Crisp clean and slightly spicy finish. Some phenolic flavors, earthy hops, classic belgian flavors like clove banana and bubble gum. Really really nice, big, complex, subtle, bold and drinkable all at the same time somehow. Impressive.

I was annoyed that the bottle said "product of belgium" on it but close enough, geez.

A: Pours a nice yellow body, with a thick white head that slowly fades.

S: I am getting a funky yeast smell, which actually smells decent.

T: Wow lots of flavor! It has a very nice fruity yeast flavor, with a great amount of malt. The flavor lingers and continues to have that fruity flavor.

M: Super smooth for such a high alcohol beer. It has that full feling that makes me burp a lot too. I really enjoy the crispness on the tip of the tongue and the back of the throat.

O: This is a beer that I love to get whenever I get the chance. I dont see it too often, but it sure hits the spot. Just an all around great beer.
