I bought this as a single at Union Jack's on the Manatawny. I drank it in a goblet. Cork says 2005. "Only organic beer in Belgium"
Pours a very hazy gold with light orange tints. A nice 2 finger head of just off-white foam forms on top, settles to a nice coating and a ring, with very nice lacing.
Aroma is lemony citrus, very bright. Great bready pils malt, coriander, black pepper, yeast, (maybe Brett), maybe fruity like mangoes or papaya. Smells last and last.
Flavor is smooth bready pils malt, citrusy lemons, coriander, black pepper, yeast, and smooth as silk. Fruits like mangoes and tangerines. Hop bitterness is definitely detectable. I love saison. Aftertaste is long citrus and yeast, spicy.
Mouthfeel is spritzy, medium bodied, with medium carbonation. There is some kind of silkiness across the tongue that lasts. Finish is smooth and silky.
I just love saison. I could drink this stuff forever. This one is right there with the best of them. It's citrusy, spicy, and delicious.

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.
