4.4/5  rDev +5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Cloudy straw yellow in color with a huge and pillowy white head on top that dissapates at a slow to medium pace. Nearly opaque in its cloudiness. The smell is interesting with a farmhousey aroma dominating, a bit skunky even. Underneath those aromas however are bright citrusy and grassy notes. Very aromatic, and the skunkiness isn't unpleasant. Its definitely got that farmhouse vibe that saisons are so well known for.

The taste is bright and lively, with lots of bright spices and complexities. The brightness comes from the lemony citrus, both sweet and a bit tart up front and in the middle. The liveliness comes from the earthy, grassy spices and high, palate cleansing natural carbonation. The spices are actually pretty simple in that it isn't incredibly in your face, but it leads to an overall complexity that is addicting, yet very easy to drink and enjoy. The yeast seems to add a very subtle Belgian funk that is more evident in the aroma than in the taste, but it is definitely there. It mingles with the citrusy hops, blending into a nice semi-bitter finish that doesn't overwhelm with funk. It is refreshingly light in the mouthfeel despite all that is going on with it, and the high carbonation makes for a very dry and palate cleansing finish. Slight aftertaste of skunkweed, but again not at all enough to go against the overall taste of this beer.

Really great saison, definitely recommended as as an easy drinking summer beer to refresh, but that also has a complex edge to it. Definitely try it if you are new to saisons as this will make you want to try more.

4.34/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Nose: An intense, polished aroma with a moderate barnyard character. Citrusy, acetic, grainy and fruity.

Mouth: The mouth is rich and complex with a puckering bite to it. Profile closely follows the nose. Pleasantly hopped and only moderately carbonic.

Overall: Enjoyable, refreshing, complex, brisk and intense; This legend did not disappoint although it's a beer that does requires some patience to deconstruct and understand.

330ml bottle into a tulip.

Pours a hazy dark gold with a huge billowy three finger white head. Thick foam and lacing lasts throughout the drink. Very, very impressive.

Aroma is everything a Saison should be. Loads of spicy Belgian yeast along with some peach and white bread. Orange and coriander along with some floral notes. The spiciness just really pops from this beer.

The flavor is much along the same lines as the aroma. Tons of spice with touches of orange, coriander, and peach. Really nice bready notes from the malt throughout. More pepper towards the finish. Mouthfeel is very light and spritzy with just a hint of sweetness in the finish; very quaffable.

Overall, this is the textbook definition of what a Saison should be. Pretty much the defining beer for the style and one of my all time favorite beers.
