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.

750ml caged cork bottle. Cork marked 2006. Decants with a smart pop, into a cervoise a hazy pale golden color with a huge amount of carbonation fueling a 1-finger eggshell head. Carbonation slows down after a bit, and the head falls slowly to a thin cap and a decent amount of sticky lace. Nose is quite good and is as expected dominated by clove and coriander along with some citrus and hints of honey as it warms. Taste is a bit astringent at first but mellows with a bit of warming; cloves are heavy in the nose and on the palate, and there’s some citrus, honey, and light alcohol warmth as well. Mild hop bitterness keeps things slightly dry. A good summer saison flavor, yet a bit harsh for me, perhaps a combination of the alcohol and spice. Mouth is smooth with low viscosity; it’s wet and easily quaffable with light carbonation. Drinkability is good, the brew is smooth and agreeable, and the alcohol is fairly well integrated. Not sure on the ABV, I’d guess about 7%.

Overall: A good saison but not exceptional, this one tastes a bit too biting for me. I like my saisons mellow and smooth. Worth a try.
