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.

Pours a light hazy pale yellow color with a big white head. In the aroma, lemon zest and yeasty. In the taste, dry yeastiness and lemon zest, with a sweeter barnyard like earthiness. A smooth and light bodied mouthfeel, with a semi dry lemon yeastiness to a clean aftertaste. Clean and refreshing, nice blend of citrus and earth.
