Exceptional beer! Very well rounded and subtle. Beautiful floral notes with complex yeast undertones. Perfect hop bitterness and a slight sour touch. Smooth mouth feel with complex lingering flavors, including a slight maltiness.

If you haven't tried it, it's certainly worth a try.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: Incredibly light in color, giving an appearance similar to lemonade. Fluffy white head that leaves some islands of lace on the glass. The body of the beer is extremely hazy. Very tiny carbonation bubbles are visible.

S: I pick up some funky scent...no other way to describe it. Some rubber, some lemon zest, some skunk scent. I'm wondering if the bottle is skunked at all or if it's just part of the beer.

T: Well I am happy to say that there is no skunk in the taste. Very clean flavors, with the earthy hops coming through, there is a very faint grain flavor, and a good amount of spice. A little peppery and some lemon zest very faintly in the background. It's a very subtle tasting beer and is probably the easiest Saison I've ever had to drink.

M: The mouthfeel is outstanding. It is smooth and refreshing while drinking, but leaving a slight dryness at the end. It goes down very calmly and does not feel unsettling at all.

O: Overall I am really enjoying drinking this beer. When smelling the beer I thought it was going to be ripe with funky flavors when it came to tasting. It was a complete polar shift. I found that my glass appeared to empty much quicker than other saisons I've had. It is not full of sourness or horsey barnyard smells and flavors (at least to me). It is very subtle in all flavors and they meld nicely.

Sampled this Saison in in a green 750 ml corked bottle. According to the cork, it was a 2001 vintage. I was concerned about the ale being light struck because of the green bottle, but the first smell dissipated these fears. The nose was slightly fruity with a background note of earthiness. The appearance was pure sunlight in a glass! A spun gold, effervescent body sat under a dense, rocky, white head that would not have looked out of place with a cherry placed atop of it! The head lasted the whold way to the last sip...talk about excellent head retention. The flavor was every bit as substantial as the head. An intense assault of tart hops backed by a fruitty maltiness that dissipates into a long, tart (almost lemony...if that's a word :) ) finish. I found this flavor to be both refreshing and exhilarating. What an excellent summer ale!
