Well aged bottle. (2nd of a 2009 to 2011 purchase) Still a reasonable head with nice nose, definitely a saison by nose. Flavors have all mellowed out in a very pleasant way. Just a touch of tartness mixed with muted floral notes.

Reminds me a lot of classic Duvel beer. Quite good.

I was a little disappointed by this one. Local 2 is so good, but this one was kind of meh. It dI'd nothing to distinguish itself from other Belgian strong pale ales.
