look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - cloudy pale yellow, prodigious stick foam, beautiful stuff

S - musty (wet hay) at the pop of the cork (and quite a pop), coriander dominates as the beer settles

T - coriander, grain, ginger, fruity but quite dry

M - light and crisp

O - the musty funk adds a delicate twang to this beer, very complex, well integrated, nothing dominates

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

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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!
