August 31, 2014

25.4 oz (1.5 L) bottle; snifter

A – Massive foamy white head, 1 ½ to 2 inches. Five minutes later it's almost all still there, big and craggy still in the glass. Medium gold to orange in color. Light haze. (4.50)

S – Unfortunately, my bottle got lightstruck / skunked. Going to try to smell through it. Some non-light-caused funk, sweetness, perhaps lemon. Maybe a taste of lime even (No score assigned due to handling flaw).

T – Very earthy, lots of citrus, and some pepper. This is an incredibly refreshing beer. No sweetness. Nice acidity balanced by the high carbonation level. Would go really well with spicy, citrusy food. Very light on malt and hop flavors (or more likely just really well balanced), but still very flavorful. (4.00)

M – Highly carbonated, tons of thick, luscious bubbles on the tongue and on the finish. A real thirst-quencher. Very light and refreshing. (4.25)

O – Not going to hold the skunking against it, as I’m seeing that it’s pretty common to this beer. I sure wish they would reconsider the green bottles, though. I understand why this is THE classic example of a saison. From the big foamy pour to the quenching finish, this is a solid, great beer all-around. (4.25)

4/5  rDev -4.5%

Pours a bright golden yellow with a massive pillowy fluffy white head. Highly carbonated. Smells massively of graphite and iron with a dash of grass and a crisp autumn day. Tastes mellow and of fresh milky oats and grains. Finishes with grAssy earthiness. Not a bright green grass taste, but more of a dusty grey dried out grass in late summer. After a few sips some of the earthiness melts away and just leaves a mellow sweetness with a very mild caramel sugar. Pretty darn tasty. I expected this to be a little more delicate, but still refreshing. For being widely regarded as the best saison ever, I think my expectations were a little high.
