750ml bottle dated 2004.
This is the second time I have had this beer, but it is my only Saison so I can not compare it to others in this style.
Poured a huge, fluffy head. Very long lasting. Color is an opaque golden straw. Beautiful beer to look at.
The aroma is fruity/spicy. Light yeast. The taste is interesting and hard to pin down. Seem to evolve as I was drinking it. Very gentle with no overpowering hops. Some fruitiness and wheat, and a light sweetness in the background.
Quite pleasant in the mouth. Rather creamy and slightly dry. This reminded me of other Belgian ales I've drunk, but "friendlier." The lower alcohol content and softer taste makes it very versatile with food and quite drinkable. I would defnitely have this again [if I hadn't just drunk my two bottles from my last trip to the mainland!].
