4.3/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a light pale gold, plenty of white frothy head, good retention and leaves a nice lingering film and great lace. Have some of the yeast suspended and on the bottle of the glass, but most was enjoyed separately.

Beer has a fresh yeasty aroma. Piney and grassy notes, light hops. Some mild banana. Light and fresh, but very interesting.

Taste is light, yeast is present. malt comes through. Shows a nice tartness and really good complexity. Floral aspect as well. The tartness becomes more dry toward the end, finish is dry, green apple.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, carbonate is medium and the beer is crisp and refreshing. Quite nice. Great drinkability and really pleasing on the palate.

Really good classic beer. Very nice balanced profile, complex and tart flavour. Great stuff, and a classic of this style. Lovely.

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

Poured into a Pint Glass. Cork on this says 2.010, hopefully it doesn't mean the year 2010

Appearance - Cloudy Dark Yellow and with just a tiny bit of sediment. Like Ommegang Saison, this has a very tall voluminous head that clocks in around 5 fingers in width. The big difference here is that the head retention is quite shorter and more soapy, whereas Ommegang has a fluffy head and very good head retention. However, it does have quite a bit of lacing along the sides

Smell - Lemon Zest, Grassiness, Yeasts/Biscuits, Barley, and Malts. This is a very earthy smelling Saison, so earthy in fact that it reminds me of a Pilsener.

Taste - Sweet Yeasts, Bready/Biscuits, Lemons, Floral Hops, Barley and Malts. Smells like a Pilsener but tastes like a Saison, this was a pleasant surprise. Flavors blend together fairly well and give it a nice smoothness, though I was expecting more of a malty kick. Aftertaste is mildly grassy with some yeasty notes.

Mouthfeel - This one has a light body and virtually no carbonation. Feels light yet refreshing, which is impressive considering it's ABV.

Overall - Trying a Belgian Saison for the first time and I'm impressed with it. Aside from the fact it lacked a strong malty backbone, I have to say it was really good. I say it's definitely worth checking out if you're into Saisons and looking for something just a bit different.

On Tap at Pakhuis in Ghent, Belgium

A- Hazy golden with a white head of tiny bubbles that lasts and lasts leaving good lacing.

S- Crackers, decaying wood, pears and a touch of melon rind. Really nice, makes me think of summer.

T- Up front a sweet cracker sensation is quickly balanced with spice (white pepper, cardamom) and hops. Finish is peppery with lemon and a bit more of the honey dew melon character.

M- Thin and dry with medium carbonation. Perfect for the style and allows the flavors to dance around nicely.

D- An excellent beer. On tap it is delicious and was a welcome finish to my first day in Belgium.

Poured from an 11.2oz bottle into a pint glass

A: Pours a hazy, golden-straw color with a lovely, large white head that slowly bubbles and craters away. Light, spotty lacing.

S: The first thing that I detect is a good dose of farmhouse funk. Followed quickly by some lemon-tart and a grassy aroma. A little bit of pilsner malt in the background.

T: Clove, phenols and banana. The funk flavor is not overwhelming but definitely potent. Wet hay and wool. Not very tart at all. Incredibly dry finish; leaves my mouth feeling like I just sipped a dry white wine. Yeast and phenols flavor the finish.

M: Dry and medium-thin. Moderate, small, champagne-like carbonation.

O: A fantastic saison. Not too tart, but very funky. Easily one of the driest beers I've ever had. Love it
