2006 Edition

Pours light yellow golden and very hazy with a very large rocky white head. Smells of peaches and hay with a slight yeasty funk.On the palate, this is really difficult for me to pin down. Starts with an initial stab of spice (clove and coriander) immediately followed by absolutely oppressive fruit driven malt. Somewhat citrus, slight mango, grape, peach and faint banana. This backed by a very full earthy aspect, hay, grass and yeastiness. Through the finish this is spectacularly bittered and dries out. Not to say that it's particularly bitter or overly dry, it's not but it's gorgeous. Spice again becomes evident along with a nuttiness and everything fades against it's backdrop. The finish is LONG, lingering forever. A very tight, flavor overall yet with great depth and complexity and slight tartness throughout. Body is medium, but the carbonation is high and very fine, making it very light. At 9.5 the drinkability of this is amazing.

Not a very rustic saison, but in a more plush style. Not my favorite saison, but supberb and as well made as any with exceptional balance.

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.
