11.2 floz bottle into la chouffe snifter
brownish dark orange body with a bright white head of one finger. quite turbid, good lacing. sweet fruity smell, malty and a good yeast portion, but lacking some potency. has some really dry ethanol alcohol taste in the finish, but the overall taste is like a less juicy tripel: it has the same sweetness, but less of that yeasty body. the aftertaste has a big bitter component that lasts a couple of seconds; tastes likes bitter astringent hops. good carbonation, and a well balanced body.

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.
