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.
