flowery nose
head is creamy. notes of citrus. bread and slight spiciness and mild bitter finish
foamy feel, silky
overall a very nice beer. very refreshing. i can see drinking this during the heat of the summer. or now in the winter to think about the days of summer.

The orange smell steps out right away from the beautiful sunny glass. The taste also brings the oranges, together with subtle floral tones. I can notice a black pepper tone, but strongly associated with the aroma, while taking the sip. The end is dry, with a well-balanced hop bitterness. This is a beer with character.

Bottle: big solid green 750mL champagne-style bottle, a standard and plain Belgian label.

Appearance: very light golden yellow in colour, with fine carbonation and a big fluffy head that drops to a nice cap. Almost like champagne, funnily enough.

Aroma: plenty of earthy, herbal and floral characters on the nose - very different (this is my first Saison). Some light citric backing.

Taste: very different, but quite nice. Again with the dominant earthy and floral characteristics, with some lemon citric hops and some funky Belgian hops ( I assume these are wild?).

Aftertaste: hangs around nicely - a good beer for a slow session.

Mouth feel: light to medium in body with a somewhat higher carbonation than I was expecting. Goes down easily.

Overall: this was my first Saison - I have had Krieks and Lambics before, but I think Saison suits me a little better. Also, considering the size of the bottle (750mL), the ABV (6.5%) and the price (approx AU$12-13 a bottle in 2013) it is actually quite decent value. Not cheap, but I don't expect a specialty Belgian ale to be cheap by any means. This one is worth it.
