Even a deliberately delicate pour on this fresh bottle of hazy gold brew leads to a vigorous bright white head, taking several moments to settle into a manageable frothy cap that endured the entire session and produced intensive lacing waning to some lingering patches as the glass wares down. An herbal spicy aroma leads to a pleasantly moderate mix of malt and hops, sweet at first with a touch of sour citrus and mild bitterness finishing the flavor. Not terribly strong nor tremendously interesting, yet absolutely delicious all the same! Quite well suited for its intended purpose, a hot summer's day.

Wow, my first review in a long time. This is only my third saison, so I'm not sure If I really understand the style yet, but here it goes.
Poured from a 375ml bottle into a Hapkin glass. Needed all that extra room because it produced a vigorous head. My first thought when I smelled it was, "Wow this is skunked". But maybe that is how it supposed to smell. Another Saison I had smelled the same. Ended up tasting pretty great. Fruity sweetness mixed with corriander and a lingering bitterness. The most enjoyable of the few saisons I've had. Would go great with any dinner that calls for white wine. Definately worth picking up.

A - Gold yellow with medium carbonation. The foam is white, fine and very persistent.

S - In first citrus (lemon in particular). But there's also a scent of white fruit like apple. A little of honey a some herbaceous by hop.

T - All the sensations that come from the nose return also in the mouth. There's a good aftertaste of bitter.

M - Very dry beer, but it's not completely what I expected. It's not one of the best belgian beers i've drinked..

D - Alcohol it's wisely balanced by bitter and fruity, so this beer results very drinkable!!

Great beer. Opened it and could hear the carbonation, very bubbly. Very smooth to drink from start to finish. This is definitely a beer to drink again and again.

The smell was sweet and the first sip was as good as last. I could see drinking this on a hot summer day while hanging out with friends.

Pours a nice, golden hazy color with an strong head. This was a 2004 and the age was apparent right away in the aroma. Very nice, spicy nose with a combination of lemon and pepper. The taste is very refreshing and this is one of the best saisons I've had. Nice mild, spicy flavor that's very refreshing.

Pours a nice shade of gold, but filmy. Really nice head. The smell is a fresh smell this is by no means watered down. Taste is awesome. Really clean, fresh, and un-watered down taste. Goes down smooth with no bite or aftertaste even trying really hard to tell. I paid $7.50 in a specialty store in Alabama for this bottle (most I have paid for a bottle in a store as of this date) and I am not disappointed at all. The bottle with the corked top is no marketing scheme. Has the year on it for some reference to its freshness which taste fresh. I am really going to enjoy drinking this beer!

**Edit**

Turns out the bottle I bought for so much was a larger version of the same beer in my frig. I will give the small, cheaper priced, bottle to my girlfriend to try.

Long lasting head. Hazy. Pilsner malty, bitter, peppery, touch of clove, phenolic aroma and some flavor. Tasty, but slight brett flavors lean toward pepper/sandpaper rather than refreshing slightly sourness. Full bodied, yet pretty dry for this alcohol level. Dangerously drinkable, but I'm a bit disappointed after seeing scores well above 90.
