4/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Pours a barely hazy golden color (probably from the tiny bit of yest that got stirred up during the pour) with an incredibly thick white head that leaves exceptional lace. Smells of spices, honey, even the syrup of cherries (werid, i know...but it's awesome and keeps my nose in the glass). The taste is also of spices, honey (not as much as the nose hinted at), and again, this marachino cherry flavor keeps coming up. It has a mild bitterness and a nice dry finish. Unfortunately, the Foret didn't have as much "funk" as I was hoping for, but nevertheless, awesome beer.
I am fairly new to Saisons but like what I have had so far and the Foret only adds to my encouragement to explore this style in more depth.
750ml, tulip, began at ~50 degrees and ended at ~60 degrees F.

3.99/5 rDev -0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
750ml bottle into a Chimay goblet. From yesterday.
A: Pours a hazy gold color. The head is two fingers high and white in shade. I'm incredibly amazed by how creamy and well retaining its texture is, and also by how much lacing it leaves behind. There are also a noticeable amount of yeast particles near the bottom of the glass.
S: Aye, it's a bit skunky. Thankfully it doesn't obscure the other notes. I'm also getting noble hops, candied sugar, and spice. Shame about the skunk, but it doesn't fully ruin the nose.
T: MUCH better. It starts with a fantastic fruit notes - citrus, pineapple, peach, you name it. Spiciness enters the finish, bringing almost a sesame seed character. I'm also getting herbal and black pepper touches. It's just deep enough, yet still fantastically effortless and unique - and at the end of the day, that's what a saison should be.
M: I like how creamy, soft, and full it is. Yet, it's still bone dry, with medium carbonation. I love how it's both rich feeling AND refreshing all at the same time.
O: Oh yeah, this is the shit. The skunky nose isn't so offputting as to ruin this, and every other aspect is at least excellent. It's so drinkable, yet so rich and so flavorful. I need more of this in my life.
