The orange smell steps out right away from the beautiful sunny glass. The taste also brings the oranges, together with subtle floral tones. I can notice a black pepper tone, but strongly associated with the aroma, while taking the sip. The end is dry, with a well-balanced hop bitterness. This is a beer with character.

Bottle: big solid green 750mL champagne-style bottle, a standard and plain Belgian label.

Appearance: very light golden yellow in colour, with fine carbonation and a big fluffy head that drops to a nice cap. Almost like champagne, funnily enough.

Aroma: plenty of earthy, herbal and floral characters on the nose - very different (this is my first Saison). Some light citric backing.

Taste: very different, but quite nice. Again with the dominant earthy and floral characteristics, with some lemon citric hops and some funky Belgian hops ( I assume these are wild?).

Aftertaste: hangs around nicely - a good beer for a slow session.

Mouth feel: light to medium in body with a somewhat higher carbonation than I was expecting. Goes down easily.

Overall: this was my first Saison - I have had Krieks and Lambics before, but I think Saison suits me a little better. Also, considering the size of the bottle (750mL), the ABV (6.5%) and the price (approx AU$12-13 a bottle in 2013) it is actually quite decent value. Not cheap, but I don't expect a specialty Belgian ale to be cheap by any means. This one is worth it.
