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

a: bright, hazy yellow with a dark caramel tunnel running through the middle. large marshmallow-like white 4 finger head

s: funky, wheaty, pears, band aid, green apple, white grapes

t: brett, green apples, white grapes, light pears, nice amount of wheat, some juicy white fruits, hint of light caramel

m: medium mouthfeel with a lot of carbonation

o: not as spicy as i would have expected, yet the brett in here is really nice. its mellow and isn't overwhelming. the grapes/apples combined with the wheat flavors make this a really refreshing beer - yet combined with the brett make this all come together nicely and brings the flavors blended together really nicely

A classic Belgian Saison Ale which pours slightly cloudy to a brilliant golden color. A abundance of carbonation leaves a huge fluffy head which lasts much longer than most heads. Fabulous lacings remain while the ale is consumed. The taste is citrusy, crisp, dry and effervescent. The flavor is nicely balanced and ends with a slightly bitter finish - which in this case is a plus. The alcohol content is 6.5% which is a little higher than most saisons and is also a good thing. The ale came in a 75 cl bottle format.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

750ml bottle into a wine glass.

A: Pours a cloudy straw color. The head is three fingers high, white in color, and bubbly as hell. Retention is alright for the style, and it leaves behind a lot of lacing on the glass.

S: I first want to say LOL, green bottles. I secondly want to say this hasn't been skunked to fuck and back. Unfortunately, there is some skunk here still. Of course, I'm also getting earthen funk, lemon, cream, sesame seed (similar to Foret), and citrus. The aroma is nice, but it could have been so much better without the skunk.

T: Plain and simple, 100% classic saison goodness. At first, I get a ton of fresh orange and grapefruit. This builds into its bready yet balanced finish. Herbaceous qualities appear after a while. I have to be brutally honest here - it's just skunked enough where the hops impart a delicate bitterness that invites further chugging (err, I mean sipping...yeah, that's what I said) I'm not even missing the unique flavors I got out of Foret (read: sesame seed), it's so damn good.

M: The powerful carbonation helps give it an airy density, yet a dry finish all at the same time. It actually has a medium body and a creamy texture along side its parching back end. A touch of lingering sweetness helps its great balance even further.

O: This beer is classic for a reason (well, when it's not skunked...), and that's because it's so damn effortless and perfectly balanced. The more good saisons I drink, the more I absolutely adore the style - I don't even care that this was a bit skunked. I will buy the hell out of this beer as long as I know I'm getting it fresh.
