I am drinking a chilled 750 mL bottle poured into my Chimay chalice.
Appearance: The ale is dark yellow and cloudy. There are no large chunks of sediment visible. The pour gave a head of less than 1 finger's width and quickly dissapated.
Smell: The ale has a very natural, fruity smell. If pressed, I'd say green apple or green grapes were the tastes in question.
Taste: The aftertaste strikes me as something similar to Robitussin, quite mediciney. Prior to the medicine taste, some of the fruitiness of the aroma comes through and mixes with an upfront, fresh hoppy taste to provide a real high note. Upon tasting the ale is it warms, that medicine taste referred to above does diminish. (Note to self, let the damned thing warm
Mouthfeel: The ale is not heavily carbonated, so the tastes from a sip linger for a bit of time. They leave a gamey, natural taste in the mouth after swallowing that leaves the mouth dry (and therefore requires another sip).
Drinkability: Very drinkable. This saison is light and refreshing, providing a great ale for those lazy hazy summer days (or mid-50 degree post-Christmas, pre-New Years December days).
Serving type: bottle
