One of my favorites and oh so hard to get!

I brought back this 2003 bottling from Belgium. It was one of the three beers I was determined to find when over there.

Poured into a Duvel tulip it shows a hazed golden orange color with a BIG foamy yellow-tinged white head that laces the glass rather nicely.

Smell is complex with may esters and phenols. I get spices and cloves, banana and minty lime, lemon cream and pepper, dark caramel and figs. Wow! More like a tripel with a pepper spice kick than a Strong Pale Ale.

Taste is Dupont product for sure. I get that green hoppy skunk bite (in a pleasant way) with honeyed bananas, white pepper, figs, and who knows what light spices (even though the bottle says there are none in it - must be the yeast). Truly amazing.

Mouthfeel is the best bar none. It is so creamy that it almost feels more like a mousse than liquid.

Extraordinarily drinkable until I fall on the floor from too many!

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.
