Sampled this Saison in in a green 750 ml corked bottle. According to the cork, it was a 2001 vintage. I was concerned about the ale being light struck because of the green bottle, but the first smell dissipated these fears. The nose was slightly fruity with a background note of earthiness. The appearance was pure sunlight in a glass! A spun gold, effervescent body sat under a dense, rocky, white head that would not have looked out of place with a cherry placed atop of it! The head lasted the whold way to the last sip...talk about excellent head retention. The flavor was every bit as substantial as the head. An intense assault of tart hops backed by a fruitty maltiness that dissipates into a long, tart (almost lemony...if that's a word :) ) finish. I found this flavor to be both refreshing and exhilarating. What an excellent summer ale!

Poured from a 750ml bottle dated "2.010" on the cork into my Duvel tulip glass...

A - Poured a very hazy yellow/golden straw color with a pretty massive 3 finger pure white head that sits and sits and sits like a fluffy cloud.

S - Yeasty, grassy, earthy aromas mixed with lemon peel and some peppery spice. There's a great slight must aroma too that adds to the earty notes in the nose.

T - Taste doesn't exactly follow the nose, and instead is less sweet and less citrusy than expected. There is that great barnyard funk that is so commonplace with this style; truly adds a great earth-like component. There are soke spices here as well; pepper, clove, coriander perhaps? The lemon and yeast sit more towards the front of the palate with a great earthy, hay taste toward the back ofthe palate

M - Fantastic. Even for how carbonated it is, it is still smooth and refreshing with a nice dry finish. Not too bubbly, but not too thin either. Just great.

D - Outstanding, just a really amazingly easy to drink beer. So refreshing and a perfect way to end another scorcher. Clean, crisp, everything I would want in a saison.
