This saison pours, like many, with a big, thick head that clings to the side of your glass. That is a good thing. The color was golden and rather cloudy.

The nose was full of spiciness and fruit. There was a slight hoppiness to it, and a little bit of malty biscuit in there as well.

The first thing I noticed was that this has a very dry finish, almost no aftertaste present. Lots of fruit and hops present in the front. Slight medicinal, though not unpleasant, coating leads to a medium mouthfeel. Lots of pepper and spiciness throughout, which is welcomed. This paired very nicely with an artichoke/prosciutto risotto. I'd recommend this to any saison fan.

Fully hazed orange, I couldn't avoid pouring the yeast. Fluffy, frothy white head leaves some nice rings on the glass as it drops to a thick whipped topping. The nose is herbal spicy yeast and a powdery sweetness. Dried bananas, yellow cake, and a hint of incense...perfectly Belgian. Flavors of bitter orange and light fruity yeast. Leafy hops and gentle sweetness. Medium-light bodied...smooth, seemingly getting creamier as its sits in the glass. Classic Belgian beer all around. A great choice anytime, very drinkable.

750 ml poured into tulip.

Pours a three finger foamy, luscious, eggy off-white head.

Nose is skunky, farmy, yeasty, and lemony.

This beer is very dry, bitter, and tastes of lemon, pepper, and sweet marmalade.

It's incredibly crisp, quite dry, but very balanced.

Overall very enjoyable to drink - something I will definitely seek out in the future!

750 mL bottle at refrigerator temperature poured into a snifter. Cork reads: 2009.

A - Light orange, slightly hazy body with a rocky, rough head formation.

S - Ginger, orange, green apple, bready yeast, wildflowers, lemon. Lots of bright, sunshiney flavors here. These are well-complemented by a tinge of damp earth, mushrooms, and basement musk.

T - The spices are the most prominent flavor I'm picking up. Ginger, coriander, white pepper, sage, basil. It has a distinct yeasty character as well. There is some hop bitterness, but it is very slight, and often takes a back seat to the fruity and floral qualities of the hop character.

M - Terrifically effervescent, with a full-bodied bready yeast feel that is a nice counterpoint to the bright acidity and electric effervescence.

D - This brew is positively delicious. One of the best widely-available saisons out there. This brew is such a wonderful beer to pair with food - anything from fried food to fresh goat's milk cheese, from risotto to spicy Thai food, this brew has you covered. If you haven't yet tried this brew, do yourself a favor, and crack open a bottle.
