Poured from a capped and corked 750 mL bottle into a Duvel tulip. Moderately gentle hand. Label reads: Lot 13 aj. Best By End 2018.

A: Hazy, honey-colored body. 1.5 fingers of dense off-white head. Good retention. Moderate lacing.

S: Grassy, musty. Rather herbal, although the specific scents are a bit hard to pin down. Some sage, thyme, lemon balm. Slighter mint, eucalyptus. Clover. Faint candi sugar, honey. Lemon.

T: Slightly astringent bitterness initially. A touch of pale malt grain develops. Finishes semi-dry with a bit more sweetness than I was expecting. Works nicely, though. Linger floral hop bitterness and herbal notes in the aftertaste. Light alcohol presence.

M: Moderate carbonation with moderate body. Good vehicle for the flavors.

O: Unique saison with a very herbal character. Very suggestive of spring for me - brings to mind the essence of flowers, grass and all things green and blossoming. Imaging mowing your herb garden in beer form.

Prost!

Pours a pale saffron-tinged champagne colour. Large fluffy head, a bit light-looking. Lace likewise doesn't cling. Nice-looking but such a big head should do more, otherwise it's just cosmetic.

Loads of free radicals coming off the head. Resinous and earthy. Somewhat metallic. Hint of fruit, but it's all quite dour bitterness. Needs more dimensions.

Taste is smokey, now hmmm... didn't expect that. Meaty, smouldery, almost peaty. It's an earthy smoke with touches of sweetness. Back gets an odd champagney zest that sits ill with the front, but really it's the front that's incongruous. Just settles down into earthy bitterness. An odd package, but a decent smoky palate.

Foamy, decent body. Very clipped, dry back. OK.

Really don't know what to make of this. No smoke on the nose, but virtually nothing but smoke on the palate. As a result doesn't fit together in a symbiotic way for me. Certainly an odd saison.
