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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bright yellow color with a thin head with low retention.
Elegant aroma with a lemon and orange zesty, cloves, yeast and apricot.
Sour flavor of white wine, green apples, overripe oranges, sourdough, lemon, cloves and other spices, herbal and earthy hops and pineapples. Yeasty and mildly funky with a dry and acid aftertaste.
Medium body with lively carbonation with tiny bubbles. Hard to better hide its potent 9.5% abv.
Refreshingly sour, funkier, hoppier than average and tasty Saison. Highly recommended for who likes the style or wants to adventure.

750 bottle into belgian tulip.

Appearance is hazy light apricot yellow with a big fluffy off white head that lingers as it should.

Aroma is sourdough, lemon zest, white pepper, apple juice concentrate, basil, and spring field flowers.

On the palate, bready malts play with spicy yeast esters all while a rounding earthy hop presence keeps the balance. Rye, sourdough, lemon pith, clove, filtered apple cider, and faint tangerine show up through the palate.

Mouthfeel is superb. Not overly carbonated, silky light medium body, and overall just the way it should be for the style.

Overall this a great saison. Nothing bash, just a finely tweaked belgian iteration. Getting back to the roots with this one.
