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

Poured from a 750ml bottle dated "2.010" on the cork into my Duvel tulip glass...

A - Poured a very hazy yellow/golden straw color with a pretty massive 3 finger pure white head that sits and sits and sits like a fluffy cloud.

S - Yeasty, grassy, earthy aromas mixed with lemon peel and some peppery spice. There's a great slight must aroma too that adds to the earty notes in the nose.

T - Taste doesn't exactly follow the nose, and instead is less sweet and less citrusy than expected. There is that great barnyard funk that is so commonplace with this style; truly adds a great earth-like component. There are soke spices here as well; pepper, clove, coriander perhaps? The lemon and yeast sit more towards the front of the palate with a great earthy, hay taste toward the back ofthe palate

M - Fantastic. Even for how carbonated it is, it is still smooth and refreshing with a nice dry finish. Not too bubbly, but not too thin either. Just great.

D - Outstanding, just a really amazingly easy to drink beer. So refreshing and a perfect way to end another scorcher. Clean, crisp, everything I would want in a saison.

Corked date was 2003 so this was kinda young. But still tasted oh so good. Poured out a bright orange/deep gold color with a nice amount of head that lasted all the way through. Smell consisted of a variety of items. Spicies, hay-like aromas, and some fruits in the backround as well, but the fruit was quite strong. Taste was quite flavorful. Lots of citrus notes in this beer with some spiciness in the backround. Yeast and some slight hops show up at the end with a tart-like finish that lasts into the aftertaste. Quite nice. Nothing was overwhelming which was nice to see. Mouthfeel was on the border of light-medium. Perhaps I should buy a bottle and age it to see what differences will show up. Pick this up for sure.

I had this accompanied with some simply seasoned scallops, spicy shrimp, and a lemony spring salad. Really good pairing...

Amazing pour on this beer. Very thick and fluffy white head with long retention and lacing all over the glass. Almost soapy in its ability to linger and stick to the glass.

The smell is very citrusy, specfically lemon, and heavily spiced. There is also a funky beer smell.

The taste is again very lemony, with the spices working out well... at this point I can taste some noble hop and mild malts perfectly balanced so that they practically cancel each other out and allow the lemons and spice to dominate.

The mouthfeel is a bit sour, but very refreshing. High levels of carbonation and light.

A very simple yet sophisticated beer to go along with light meals.

A- Hazy pale yellow orange with a rocky white head.

A- Pepper phenolic spiciness. Very Belgiany aroma.

T- Initially a light fruity taste. Ends quite dry. Overall a very refreshing taste.

M- Medium body, high carbonation.

D- I have very little to say about this beer in many aspects. However this is the definition of a Saison. It was delicious, and if I were able to get this brew more often I would be drinking this all summer. Check this one out! Definitely check this out if you are interested in brewing a saison.
