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.

Poured two fingers of head on a cloudy, light straw colored body.
The aroma is spicy with banana, orange peal and lemon. Pretty good.
The taste is great. Leads with spice, mild bitterness with a touch of sweetness to round it out.
Medium body with a fizzy texture but the carbonation stays in a nice range.
A great saison.

Poured into a tulip glass, this is a hazy blond gold with an excellent cap of sticky white head, good head retention and lacing.

S – a lemon note accompanied by a wonderful full yeast character, lending slight farmy and musty notes but without a noticeable brett character. Notes of banana, cinnamon, lemon zest. Good firm yeast profile holding it together.

T – creamy body with a pleasant gentle crispness, earthiness, lemon citrus, florals come through nicely, full yeast with gentle spices coming in, musty, slight ginger, distinct earthy aspect with some great complexities flowing throughout. Leading to a dry finish, with a stony and dry malt note. Lingering aftertaste with a gentle spice and dry citrus.

M – full creamy feel initially, soft carbonation, letting the yeasty complexities come through nicely, leads to a dry finish with a really nice crispness. An absolute pleasure to drink, full satisfying feel that is pleasantly crisp and refreshing. Malt and yeast compliment each other nicely.

A true class act. Nice mix of earthy and musty notes in the mix and a fair bit of citrus hops. I am a fan of funky saisons but this does a good job having a good complexity and profile with some typically musty citrus yeast.
