Drank this recently on my Florida vacation. The first beer of this style that I am reviewing, and quite possibly the first beer of this style that I have ever drank. A 12.7 oz bottle with a cork poured into a tumbler/pint glass. This beer pours a cloudy, medium golden color. The head is about 1/2 inch thick when poured. Settles to a fairly thin surface layer with a nice white ring lining the inside of the glass and some okay lacing. Some wheat and fruity aromas such as apple, grapefruit, and citrus along with some spice are all present. Sweet fruity and wheat/malt flavors are all present followed by a bit of spice. Apple, grapefruit and citrus are all present, rounded out by a bit of hops. Has a crisp and smooth, full bodied mouthfeel with heavy carbonation. Easy to drink in the way a good beer should be. I would definitely drink this beer again.

This saison poured well to golden cloud in my 50cl glass which brought out a big head, even with a slow tilted pour. I raised the glass for the flowing aromas of lemons, apples, and hops.


The first taste was very similar to other saisons I had poured before and the tart fruit flavors moved to the front. I liked the lightness of the style after having a Westmalle Dubbel in the same glass only minutes before.

I thought this would be good with grilled pork chops or a white meat hero.

Not sure how I got away without reviewing this for so long. Tap at Armsby Abbey.

Nice big fizzy head, 1 finger fades slowly with tons of lacing, slight hazy golden pilsner color.

Nose is typical saison, toasty malts, bready, light spices and lemony wheat, bit of candy sugar sweetness and belgian malts, light rustic farmhouse yeast.

Taste is similar, dry rustic farmhouse with sweetness of belgian malts and light candy sugar tease the palate, light lemon wheat grass, with a bit of a citrus flavor. Hints of spices from the yeast come with the crisp malty base, and a light bready malt undertone. Finish is crisp and dry, effervescent almost, with a bit more of the light citrus and farmhouse yeast flavors.

Mouth is med to slightly lighter bodied, crisp, and good carb.

Overall great, pretty much defines the style of saison, and this is probably the beer you can single out that has driven most other breweries on where to steer their saison.

I've had this a few times now. On tap at Victoria Gastro Pub (Columbia, Md.)

In a 20oz nonic, oddly, but it worked well for various reasons.

Refreshing, full-bodied and aromatic. I've had a love/hate thing going with Saison DuPont, and its biteyness and just something odd and off-putting in it always struggle with me. It was still there this time, but subdued and the natural aromatics and varied flavors that I love about saisons came through here.

Grassy and just a touch hoppy with sweetness and that great nose, good stuff. When it's cared for properly this is a thrill to drink and I was nearly thrilled this time. Nearly. I certainly didn't recoil as I sometimes do with Saison DuPont.
