Cloudy yellow color. High carbonation with a thick head that recedes back into the glass. Lacing sticks to the sides.

Orange/citrus scent.

Has a tangy/orange tart taste with a clean finish. Dry, not particularly bitter.

Light mouthfeel.

Overall, enjoyable but not one of my top choices in beer.

This beer has high carbonation and a large head with a strong hold. The appearance is slightly hazy. The scent is citrusy, like an orange. It has a very crisp and clean finish to it which makes it have a light mouthfeel. It is very dry. There is zero sweetness which makes it slightly bitter.

Purchased in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Wonderfull beer. Sitting in my glass, golden in color with a strong head. Smell of citrus and lemon.

Taste of dry and crisp lemon and bitter orange. A slight hoppy goodness adds to the citrus.

Such a wonderfulll beer, this would be amazing on a hot summer day....

Big white head with densely packed bubbles. Dark yellow-orange color, lots of carbonation. Looks good at first. Could use better lacing on the sides.

Smells mostly of yeast with a little maltiness. Too faint.

Taste is earthy, a little bland, especially considering the style. Mild Belgian yeasts and mild malty flavor. A little spiciness on the tongue but not much.

Very dry, crisp mouthfeel, with a clean aftertaste. That part I like. It's a highly drinkable beer, but there are much better saisons out there. I would not order this one again.

a - a crisp caramel with a very thick head. There is a nice haze to it with bubbles dancing through it.

s - This is one of those beers where the nose can actually be said to be bursting. There are a myriad of notes coming through including apples, apricots, and anise.

t- There is a lot going on with this beer. It is very fruity, but not in a bad way at all. The taste sits very well on the palate, and there is a very subtle hop flavor to it.

M- When we opened the bottle and it popped like champagne, I knew what we were tearing in to. There is a lot of carbonation, which brings-out some of the fruit notes to it.

O- My wife is a huge fan of saisons, so this beer was a little bit of a surprise. Most of the saisons we've had are from American brewers, so what we came to realize as we drank it was that this beer is what a saison is supposed to taste like (not that there are not many very good American versions). We had it with Mexican food, and it was great. I cannot wait to have this beer in the summer with some of the fresh summer flavors.

Head- large once poured, minimal after rest, lots of trace
Carbonation - High carbonation
On the Nose - flowery, perhaps orange buds, hoppy taste
On the Tongue - sweet after taste, left over yeast in contents leave a small bitterness to the beer, very dry, but not particularly bitter, citrusy.
Low alcohol content

Very light and smooth beer, light mouthfeel, but lingering taste of the yeast making it minorly bitter upon swallowing

Classic Belgium farmhouse ale
Brewed in November aged till March and then opened in the following summer.

Very citrusy orangy aroma. Cloudy yellowish color. Cloudiness is from the yeast. Very strong head and good hold on the glass. Crisp and clean finish very fizzy and highly carbonated. Very light and refreshing. Good beer for a hot summer day. Tastes somewhat bitter but do not consider it bitter because it just has no sweetness to it.

The cork comes out with a satisfyingly loud pop. Poured into my Duvel tulip glass. Hazy gold with strong carbonation billowing up, which supports a nice thick white head. the aroma is complex: hay, skunks, funk, sugar and fruit, with a bit of hops in there too. A nice bready malt base sits underneath the sharp, crisp, hoppy and bitter flavors. It finishes with a slight bitterness that lingers. A lot of the aroma comes thru here with the flavor as well. this beer has a nice creamy mouthfeel and strong carbonation. Overall, this is a classic for a good reason, it's just so unique and enjoyable, although the very bitey and crisp flavors may be somewhat of an acquired taste. This is where to start with Saison, since it's easy to find and relatively inexpensive.
