I was surprised to find this on tap at Pix last night. I was further that the glass that was brought to me when I ordered was massive and full. There must have been a full 20 oz worth of Belgian goodness. But the waitress apologized for serving in the wrong glass, which was really ok with me. The beer looked quite attractive in the Duvel chalice. Murky golden with a tufted halo of brownish curling foam.
The aroma was immediately fruity. Apple cider left in the bottom of the press to long hidden in one of the horse stalls. Funky in all the right ways.
The taste was adequately malty but was really highlighted by all the various natural orchard flavors. Yeast gave it a bready base and rather bright apple sweetness. The body was mixed between sweet fullness and a somewhat thick and chunky musty malt.
All in all it was quite terrific, but the 20 oz may have been a tad too much as I couldn't bring myself to finish it. It went well with the rosemary chocolate we had as well.

A large, off-white head crowns this bright orange brew.
An array of light fruits and must flow out of the glass. Deeper inspection reveals more fruits, including orange, lemon, pear, and white grapes. Complex is as complex does. Rotten rind, peat, and faint spice complete the perfect circle.
Fruity (more orange, lemon and pear), spicy, full-bodied, creamier than expected, and lacking nothing I can think of. Has a bit of grain and yeast to finish. Vanilla is noticed as it warms. Alcohol hits and dissapears quickly.
Fabulous example of a "big" Saison.
