750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 5/1/2012. Pours hazy bright golden amber color with a nice 2-3 finger fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big lemon, apple, pear, pepper, clove, straw, hay, floral, earth, wheat, light leather, and funky yeast esters. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy esters. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, pepper, clove, straw, hay, grass, earth, floral, light leather, and lightly funky yeast spiciness. Fair amount of earthy spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, pepper, clove, straw, wheat, hay, earth, and lightly funky yeast spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice flavor complexity and balance; with zero cloying flavors on the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a lightly slick and fairly crisp and foamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent saison! Great flavor complexity and balance; and very smooth to sip on this the high carbonation. A highly enjoyable offering as expected.

A: into a tulip: hazy gold with lots of suspended sediment; fluffy head that persisted nicely and left some lace behind

S: light bready malt with tons of earthy/herbal hop and yeast notes

T: delicate pale malts and zesty, spicy and floral hops and fresh, bright yeast; bitter/tart on the backend

M: crisp, fresh, and light; sparkly carbonation; very clean-finishing

O: I'm pretty sure this is a benchmark saison - light, clean-tasting, refreshing and satisfying - easy-drinking.

one of the classic saisons, and one ive been meaning to try again and review for awhile. i really enjoy this beer. its pale honey colored in appearance and a bit cloudy with an absolutely massive white foam head, like a giant snow bank. a big old white pillow that hardly subsides at all. the nose is delicate pitted fruit and a moderately spicy belgian yeast. wheat malt and yeast are the first two flavors i pick up, but there is a gentle summery sweetness in the back end with golden raisins, peaches, and wildflowers. amazing how all these subtleties come together in a beer that remains so light and airy. effervescent carbonation makes it feel even lighter in the mouth, and although the body isnt that light, it really feels like drinking a cloud. super sessionable in the summertime for sure, and a nice reminder in the winter that summer will come again, as it always does. one of the better widely available saisons out there.
