Poured from a 375 ml bottle into my Lost Abbey teku.

A: Hazy golden hue. Pours a giant, cascading, foamy, white head. Settles very slowly and unevenly, leaving behind a crater-ous look, and some dry, sticky residue. Eventually settles to a thin foam blanket. Thick spider web lacing.

S: Baked French bread with a strong peanutty character. Slight tones of hay, fermented fruit, and lemon citrus.

T: Very bready character. Accentuated with some say, pine, and faint hints of fermented raspberry.

M: Light and refreshing. Slightly pungent, sticky, papery aftertaste. A little dry.

D: Not much resistance.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Hazy hue, giant head, sticky leftovers as it settles, and plenty of lacing as you drink it down. Nose is heavy bread with some peanut and fermented fruit. Bready flavor with some pine bite, offset with some faint allegations of fruit. Dry, light, and papery. Overall, this is a really good quaff.

750ml bottle into a snifter

A: Pours a hazy golden color with three fingers of fluffy head with a very careful pour. Excellent retention and lacing.

S: Lemon zest is quite strong with and underlying funkiness and mustiness. A touch of clove in the background. Smells very refreshing.

T: Spicier than I expected from the aroma. Peppercorn comes out quite strongly with a lemon zest flavor matching the peppercorn in intensity. An underlying funk and mustiness adds to the complexity.

M: On the lighter side with very strong carbonation.

O: Tis is a nearly perfect Saison. It's too bad more than half the bottles I've had are skunked. This beer has been far better than other bottles I've had, though. It's balanced, complex, and refreshing - pretty much the perfect Saison.

Exceptional beer! Very well rounded and subtle. Beautiful floral notes with complex yeast undertones. Perfect hop bitterness and a slight sour touch. Smooth mouth feel with complex lingering flavors, including a slight maltiness.

If you haven't tried it, it's certainly worth a try.

Bottled Date Code: L12279B

A: Hazy yellow golden with a soft white head of foam of small bubbles which stick to the glass and refuse to give way.

S: Bright and clean with mineral notes along with apple, green grapes, kiwi, and pear. There is also some honey along with chewy and cracker-like maltiness. Faint peppercorn and clove add to the nose.

T: Brief mineral and metallic edge with strong ester fruitiness similar to the nose: tart apple, green grapes, kiwi and pear. The yeast also offer some subtle hay and barnyard funk which plays off the fruity esters. Honey and cracker malt sweetness come through in the middle. The finish is of mild earthy bitterness and astringency with subtle but ample dose of black pepper and clove.

M: Light to medium with mild chewiness and moderate carbonation which adds to the overall lightness of the brew.

O: A refreshing and bright beer which draws true strength from the yeast. A necessary beer to experience for anyone who wishes to understand Belgian beer styles. At $8.99 at BevMo, this brew will be a regular in the rotation for the warm season which is settling upon Los Angeles.
