4.3/5 rDev +2.6%
Pours a light pale gold, plenty of white frothy head, good retention and leaves a nice lingering film and great lace. Have some of the yeast suspended and on the bottle of the glass, but most was enjoyed separately.
Beer has a fresh yeasty aroma. Piney and grassy notes, light hops. Some mild banana. Light and fresh, but very interesting.
Taste is light, yeast is present. malt comes through. Shows a nice tartness and really good complexity. Floral aspect as well. The tartness becomes more dry toward the end, finish is dry, green apple.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, carbonate is medium and the beer is crisp and refreshing. Quite nice. Great drinkability and really pleasing on the palate.
Really good classic beer. Very nice balanced profile, complex and tart flavour. Great stuff, and a classic of this style. Lovely.

4.05/5 rDev -3.3%
Poured into a Pint Glass. Cork on this says 2.010, hopefully it doesn't mean the year 2010
Appearance - Cloudy Dark Yellow and with just a tiny bit of sediment. Like Ommegang Saison, this has a very tall voluminous head that clocks in around 5 fingers in width. The big difference here is that the head retention is quite shorter and more soapy, whereas Ommegang has a fluffy head and very good head retention. However, it does have quite a bit of lacing along the sides
Smell - Lemon Zest, Grassiness, Yeasts/Biscuits, Barley, and Malts. This is a very earthy smelling Saison, so earthy in fact that it reminds me of a Pilsener.
Taste - Sweet Yeasts, Bready/Biscuits, Lemons, Floral Hops, Barley and Malts. Smells like a Pilsener but tastes like a Saison, this was a pleasant surprise. Flavors blend together fairly well and give it a nice smoothness, though I was expecting more of a malty kick. Aftertaste is mildly grassy with some yeasty notes.
Mouthfeel - This one has a light body and virtually no carbonation. Feels light yet refreshing, which is impressive considering it's ABV.
Overall - Trying a Belgian Saison for the first time and I'm impressed with it. Aside from the fact it lacked a strong malty backbone, I have to say it was really good. I say it's definitely worth checking out if you're into Saisons and looking for something just a bit different.
