pours with head production which fills the glass with a small amount of liquid.

smell is more like a belgian triple than what I think of as saison nose, though most saisons I drink are from the darbyeste/fantome barnyard crowd. Once the glass calms down, there is a good bit more barnyard character in this, and the glass is about a third full (full of foam previously).

Taste is even more typical of style, sense of hay, grass, with some citrus-like notes I more normally associate with triples. FInish is not bitter at all, some mild acidity but the mouthfeel is quite sweet.

Very pleasant beer, well worth giving a shot.

Poured from a 750mL green bottle, corked and caged. Hazy light orange color with a thick wet spitty looking head. The beer's smells are mixed, mostly funky Belgian aromatics but with a bit of what passes for skunk. Maybe it IS skunked, or maybe it's an intended byproduct, I can't tell. The taste is really good though, some fruits of the pear/banana/apple sorts, along with lots of yeasty spiciness, very delicious. I don't really taste skunk but I still smell it. The aftertaste is a little biting, more like pepper than bitterness from hops. The body is medium-thick, very nicely done.

The color is a hazy orange with a nice level of carbonation. Head is large and off-white. Lemon zest is first noted in the aroma. A deeper inhale reveals a yeasty clove aroma mixed with spices. Taste features a big citrus flavor, a lemony-orange combo, very acidic. Spice flavor is high and works well with the citrussy aspects of this beer. Sweetness is underlying and is joined by yeasty flavors in the finish. As Foret warms up the yeast flavors become stronger and clove flavor stands out. Mouthfeel is crisp and slightly puckering. Drinkability is high.
