Huge pale white bubbly head over cloudy yellow-brown highly carbonated beer. The smell is astringent, metallic, not pleasant.

Taste isn't that great either. Earthy malts but metallic flavors too. Mouthfeel is a bit bubbly but isn't that exciting. This beer isn't that enjoyable, especially given the excellent style it comes from.

750ml bottle with 2011 on the cork. It's good that I pointed this away from my face while opening, as the cork slammed my ceiling. I then did a little slamming with Fleshgod Apocalypse while I partook in the festivities.

A: I poured very slowly but the foam still amassed very quickly and made up a good %80 of my glass. The carbonation is nuts in this stuff. Very light golden-yellow color with thousands of bubbles spritzing about. I kinda like the whole vanilla ice cream look of this massive head.

S: Clearly one of the more wild smelling saisons I've smelled, nice bright funk emanates. Wet hay, cheese, and peppery yeast all come through strongly. Lots of earthy goodness in this beer. I'm really not sensing that high abv here, hopefully it stays that way.

T: More concentrated with flavor than many(most) of the saisons I've had. The alcohol makes this a bigger beer than most of it's brethren, and I really enjoy having it more potent. The main aspects are dryness and earthiness. Grassy hops are used here and really combine with the almost skunking flavors to round out the yeast, pepper/spice, and light funkiness.

M: Its a big bodied saison. Not quite as easy drinking as most but it still fits well in the category. Dry all the way through with the carbonation seeming moderate to low in the mouth.

O: Whoa this is a big boy. Avec les Bons Voux really stands out in this style being more bold while staying 'mostly' true to form. Highly recommended... once in a while : )

750ml bottle served in a Triple Karmeliet tulip glass.

A - Pours a cloudy orange with an impressive white head that shows excellent retention.

S - Pilsner malt, lemon, wet hay, spice, coriander, apple, peach, bubblegum, taffy, alcohol, tart grassy hops.

T - Follows the nose, spicy yeast, coriander, apricot, peach, apples, bubblegum, taffy, lemon cuts through the sweet stone fruit, a very mild grassy tartness plays on the back of the throat, pilsner malt keeps the base. Finishes spicy.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, fruity semi-dry finish.

Big pilsner malt base, with loads of fruity yeast esters. Hops are grassy and mild, finishes peppery and semi-dry. Very good overall. Pretty high ABV for the style but drinks good.

Serving: 750ml bottle into my Arrogant Bastard Ale glass.

A: Pours cloudy pale yellow with a full inch and a half of thick head. Lots of carbonation visible. Very, very nice.

S: Big on the Belgian yeast smell, bready, with fruity and spicy notes.

T: Dry at first, then peppery and spicy. Somewhat earthy and bitter on the finish. Fantastic Saison.

M: Very smooth in the mouth with bits of pepperiness and fizzy bite. Awesome.

O: Fantastic Saison, I'd have to put it near the top of my list. I would buy this again.

A: Pours a cloudy golden tangerine in color with some light visible carbonation at the edges of the glass near the surface. The beer pours with a finger tall light beige head that reduces by about 25% but remains covering the entirety of the surface of the beer. Significant lacing is observed.

S: Lots of aromas of the yeast for this beer - lots of spicy presence that is really delicious smelling. There is an underlying funkiness and slight hints of wood.

T: The flavor is not too intense but is very enjoyable with some good funkiness, tons of spiciness from the yeast, and some dry wood in the finish. What a great flavor to this beer.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Very dry.

O: This beer has no presence of alcohol and is extremely enjoyable - I love a good saison and this beer does not disappoint. Very easy to drink and definitely one I would like to get again. I could drink this beer all day long and find it to be very refreshing.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: The beer is slightly hazy golden yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a massive three finger high bright white head that has excellent retention properties and consistently left a thin head covering the surface.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of yeast and spices in the nose.
T: The taste is quite earthy and has flavors of grassy hops and spicy yeast—the spices particularly stand out in the finish. There are some slight hints of alcohol.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate to high amount of carbonation. There is a moderate to high amount of dryness in the finish.
O: Considering its strength among other beers in the style, this beer isn’t that difficult to drink because the alcohol is well masked from the taste. It is a nice saison to drink on a cold winter night.

A-hazy orange/straw color with 2 finger head. perfect carb for this one.

S-orange pepper and a bit of funk with some lemon rind. Very peppery. Citrusy.

T-Get hit with the orange peel first with the pepper than turns almost into a booziness (moonshine)flavor and finishes clean with a slight tart peppery flavor. very well done.

M-very light body with perfect carbonation for this style.
