This is my first Saison, and I have to say that I am very impressed. I was expecting some stinky farm crazy beer, but I got this beautiful warm spring-like clean farm experiance.
A-Pours very hazy,(with some yeast particles) which is not bad imo, deep golden hay color with a creamy/rocky off white one finger head that does not dissapate at all and has great lacing.
S-The aroma is so beautiful I was taken back! Full of bright fruitiness like ripe peaches and grapes. Along with a hefty earthy/spicy hoppy nose which is always a plus in my book. Some sweet bread yeastiness in the back, but not too far in the back. Very complex and delightful.
T-The taste is much like the aroma but has a slight green apple bitter tang to it. Along with the fruit and earthy/spicy hops and that oh so sweet yeasty bread dough in the finish.
M-Very refreshing and crisp with a full body to boot! Slightly effervescent and dry in the finish.
D-Very drinkable indeed. I might go get some more of this along with exploring the style more in other offerings, especially for the summertime! But this is very delightful indeed.

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.
