A: pours an absolutely clear and crisp looking straw yellow with a lot of bubbling forming a half finger of snowy white head in my "La Fin Du Monde" tulip glass. The head hangs for a good while. Some spotty bubbles cling to the glass till the finish.
S: the nose starts very musty, extremely wine like. I'm not a wine connoisseur and couldn't tell you what type of grape is in it if it were not for the label. There is a little malty notes but the must and white wine come out first and foremost.
T: unlike the nose there is a bit of malt first on tongue and some subtle hop earthy ness. The wine comes in the middle of the taste and overwhelms the palate and leaves a bit astringent and acidic.
M: it's medium bodied, almost light on the tongue. Extremely effervescent like a champagne, acidic and astringent. It's just barely dry. Very well balanced and pleasing.
O: this is an amazing beer, an extraordinary experience. I would buy this again in a heartbeat, I could see pairing this with many, many different foods. Defineatly a one of a kind experience.

Off the charts excellent but not your typical beer. As indicated it is borderline wine - a great bubbly Chardonnay like white. Nose is white grape, sour and some citrus. On the tongue beer is not the first thing present - you almost have to search for the beer. For fans of wine and beer with an open mind this is a great surprise. Texture up front is excellent fading only slightly through the back with a lingering white grape and lemon flavor. Could be considered in the sour class but i think its actually in a class by itself. Excellent pairing with sushi. Thank you DFH for going outside of the box.

A - Brilliant color... Crystal Clear with a lot of carbonation. Nice lace
S - Some wine notes. Almost a spice but some Citrus that reminds me of the Viognier
T - Tons of Wine notes. Crisp and Clean, almost creamy. I Like the malt Awesome finish. VERY Nice
MF - Great Mouth feel.. I'd say medium body with nice carbonation. very wine like though
Overall - Great Beer/Wine?...and a definitely a "sorta" saison. maybe the most interesting beer I've had in a long long time... I'm interested to try and pair this with some different foods. Very drinkable, and i will be having this again.
Serving type: 750mL bottle

Was given a 22 ounce bottle of this as a gift. Poured it out into a pint glass about a month after recieving. A mediocre amount of white head.
Very golden in color. Transparent which differs from some Saisons which can be cloudy. Served very chilled. Grape effervescence in the bouquet. Fruity, floral smell.
The first sip sweetness was dectected. You can tell that belgian yeast was used for the fuity taste that had a hint of grapes. Upon research pinot gris grapes were used in the fermentation process. High 9% + abv.
One of the best beern I had in months.

Tulip at 45 maybe 40. found this gem at whole foods
a- clear and gold with a white 2 finger head.
s- almost like a nice riesling wine. oak, citrus, and grape (very sexy)
t- has a nice grape flavor with some great citrus and oak tones(just as it smells)
m- farmhouse ales would be my favorite type of beer if they were not so dry. this is dry but not as bad as some others
o- im a huge saison dude and i would put this up in my top 5. ipa and stout guys will crush this beer but if you like sweet beers this one is for you. Its almost like a summer shandy except its a riesling instead of lemonade. if you see it buy it! and enjoy
