3.98/5  rDev -5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Undated bottle acquired at Princeton Liquors in Maple Grove, MN. Poured ~4C into a wine glass. Warmed through sampling.

Pours a hazy yellow, that is slightly deeper than expected with a huge white head that leaves some solid lacing. Nose is lighter than expected with pepper and wheat being predominant. Taste is in the same vein, though a buttery slickness comes through too which negatively affects the mouthfeel. Strong & prickly carbonation, and a dryish finish. For a beer I have heard so much about, and in the midst of saison tasting, this beer just didn't do it for me. Nice, though not great, and I dare say I preferred 3 Monts over this.

On draught at the Blue Monk in Buffalo.

Poured into a Dupont nonic glass. Murky golden, big billowing head with great retention and nice lacing.

Nose is pure saison delight: wheat, herbal hops, a bit of funk, spices, lemon zest and honey.

A damned tasty saison, light and refreshing on this hottest of days. Similar tasting notes as in the nose. Paired with a nice braised rib sandwich, which really brought out the honey flavour here. Not too funky, and the yeast is kept in check. Medium bodied, mild carbonation, sticky.

Just an all around delightful brew, and a great showcase of the style. Refreshing as all get out.

Serving type: on-tap

cork says 2011 so i'm going with that. SN Tulip
A: cork was popped, loud pop, the pour is effervescent and reminicent of champagne. HUGE 4 finger head on it. cloudy golden looking beer, with awesome carbonation from the bottle conditioning.lacing is great, head recedes slowly,

S: Sweet honey, pear or white grape skin, barnyard funkiness, wheat malt, earthy, floral, lemon zest, herbs, slight skunk (Green bottle) slight tartness

T: phenols from the yeast, clove, honey and herbs with a floral hop presence, slight skunk (Barely noticeable) and bready malt backbone. slight tartness on the finish,

M: Medium bodied from the wheat malt but a bone dry finish makes this one an easy drinker. Delicious

O: Highly recommended. this is on the top of my short list for summer beers and its easy availability makes it even better. Cheers!

BB Oct 2014.

Cloudy golden yellow with a very large, full-looking white head. Good retention.

Smell is dry, spices and lemon, slightly funky horse blanket. Wheat.

Taste is like the nose. Tart lemon, yeast, spices (white pepper, clove), wheat, a bit of funk. Other light fruits: a bit of green apple. Dry. Good.

Medium bodied, high carbonation. A bit irritating.

Overall, a very good saison and a true classic.

Beer presents awesomely in the 750ml corked bottle. Lovely pale colour with spritey carbonation. Nice flakes of yeast floating around. Nose is divine, doesnt get much better than this. Pure freshness. On the tongue I get dryness, apple skins, lemon zest, prickly champagne-like carbonbation on the tongue. Not hugely complex, but doesnt need to be.

Pale straw colored pour its dark yellow to marigold in my glass. Illustrious, large head gives a foamy bath to every surface it can cling to.

Smells like a hayloft. A hayloft, sunburnt skin and minty hop.

Tastes like wet hay and mint hops. Nice dry finish. Chewy and refreshing.

One of those archetypical beers that one can't consider the style without including this beer. Up there with Fantome.

Enjoyed in a tulip glass

A: pours a very bright golden color that is very hazy and has ample carbonation bubbles, pours with tons of head that is very large bubbled and pure white, lingers beautifully before dissipating and leaving a great amount of lacing
S: a very nice lemon zest note, bright, light peppery notes, grassy
T: very nice light and bright taste, not as peppery as many other saisons i have seen, highly drinkable, slight lemon note, definitely grassy, finishes slightly bitter
M: gentle carbonation, smooth, think but with a distinct character to it almost like i can taste the yeast in suspension, slightly dry on the finish
O: a really delicious and incredibly drinkable saison, extremely refreshing and beautifully balanced
