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.

Hazy gold with a gigantic white head (pour it into a 16 ounce glass). Smells like yarrow and milkweed, like an overgrown field (typical of saisons). Flavours of coriander, yellow curry, fresh cut grass, booze. You have to like saisons to appreciate this, but it's a good one.

This was a gift from a dear friend. Much appreciated, bro.

The first thing I notice is that no matter how slowly and methodically I pour it, a foamy head quickly develops. The beer pours smoothly and after it is done, there appear in the glass tiny colloidal particles that hang suspended in the glass, through the entire depth.

The smell is heavenly, soft, unobtrusive. A light malt waft is sensed when one dips his nose into the glass.

The taste is mellow but not without complexity. It's almost as if too many layers exist to parse in one sip. Hence, many sips were taken to identify all the many parts, but I remained unsuccessful in my ability catalogue them all.

The mouthfeel, though admittedly unimportant compared to taste, was much less viscous than one would think based on appearance.

Overall, this ale is excellent, a definite keeper of the Belgian brewing tradition.
