Foret pours hazy gold with a light orange tint under a 3” thick mousey head that looks like freshly fallen snow and very slowly collapses leaving art nouveau designs on the glass. It has a big saison nose with light fruit, spice, earthiness, bread and a light funk. Bready malt leads the palate seasoned with light fruit, malty sweetness, citrus, and a slight funk that becomes tart on the finish. The beer has an effervescent medium body – the texture makes the beer with slightly different flavors emphasized in the body than in the rich moussey foam.

Ultimately, a sweeter version of Saison Dupont, Like they took a whole ton of cane sugar and mixed it into the recipe. Liked it but will stick with Saison Dupont from these guys.

My rating: 3.5

I was expecting more from this brew. Its a fine example of the beer but nothing uber special.

I had this on-tap in a straight sided DuPont glass at the Stumbling Monk in Seattle.

Appearance: light golden hue with a light haze and 2 fingers of frothy white foam head. Quite attractive.

Smell: moderately funky with a nice grassy aroma. Enticing.

Taste: a little buttery with more of that moderate funk with a little sweetness and nicely grassy hops. Very smooth and balanced; I quite like it.

Mouthfeel: medium rich body with a great smoothness and great creaminess. Bam!

Overall: this is a balanced and very drinkable saison. Delicious.

4.52/5  rDev +12.4%

Appearance: Pours with four fingers of highly condensed bubbles which partially dissipated but were still very present while drinking. Rich rings of sticky lacing left behind with the dissipating head and each drink. Golden in color with amber notes throughout darkening it up. Active carbonation is good but a tick lower then most saisons.

Smell: Honey sweetness meshes perfectly with freshly cut straw exploding on the front. Sprite fresh fruits with accents of mango, pineapple, and kiwi dance on the undertones. Butterscotch, sour dough bread, and sprite yeast really pull this aroma through on the back end. So bright and potent, a true treat.

Taste: The second it touches the palate, a light touch of salt and prairie grass wash over and really pull the drinker in. The grass continues into the body with gradual but significant malts growing. Touches of grains, but the malt profile comes off with a medium, rounded sweetness that really shines. Floral notes with some airy spices pull through on the back end.

Mouthfeel: For me, the lower carbonation in this brew is perfect. Sweet, incredibly drinkable while still packing a significant pop at 7.5%

Overall: This is the best Saison I've ever had. The honey like sweetness meshes perfectly with the grassy, earthy notes. Crisp without being over the top, simply a masterfully crafted brew.
