I thought it was about time I tried this fabled saison, and I haven't been disappointed. Poured from a cork-and-cage bottle into tulip gives a pale golden, slightly hazy brew with a massive white head of foam that's taking a long time to subside.
The aroma is promising - earthy, musty, Belgian yeast, and before I take a sip I can tell that this is going to be a dry beer.
The first sip is worth the wait; fruity, crisp, herbal, earthy, slightly tart, dry, not much malt, bitter finish. It's a very complex, full-flavoured and well-balanced beer. Some beers will have a lot going on as this one does but they'll be a mess - all over the place with no cohesion. This one pulls it off and does so in spades. Really, really well done.
