On tap in Antwerp. Pours deep golden colored with a creamy white one finger head. Aroma of pears, buttery notes, some yeast and grass. Flavor is extremely buttery tasting alongside sweet honey and some yeast funk. On the sweet side. Medium bodied with low carbonation . Wasn’t a huge fan of this one.

Flavoursome but easy drinking Saison that hits the spot.

aroma: citrus/rich malt predominate

taste: peach, apricot. clove, rich malt, banana, white wine, orange and slight grapefruit.

Fruity and distinctly Belgian with a pleasant dryness. Well balanced and a good beer to have with friends.

A- muddy gold with one inch of coarse light tan head. Decent head retention, poor lacing. Random splotches of foam stick at random to the sides of the glass. There is a lot of carbonation along the sides of the glass.

S- spicy hops, clove, yeast. pretty light. Some lemon peel as well.

T- clove, honey, grain, . some light spicy grassy hops in the finish. I'm really not Getting that barnyard funk that a saison should have.

M- light, prickly carbonation, refreshing.

O- eh. It doesn't scream saison to me.

Poured a light golden color in a tulip with a 2F head which resolved in minutes to a 1/2 f head.

Aroma:interesting- funk, lemon, clove. Different than other Saisons which have more fruit.

Mouth feel: mild carbonation.

Taste: clove, mild bitterness, and malt. I prefer more fruit and funk in a Saison taste.

Overall: This is different approach to a Saison. Good although I am partial to stronger clove, fruit, and more carbonation in a Saison.

This is my first try of a belgian Saison! A great beginning as I can see!
It's a saison of a light, pale orange color and a nice big foam.
It has a nice sweet, malty, and earthy aroma.
Taste is malty and earthy too, it begins fruity, a bit tart and sweet but then comes some bitter notes.
Hoppiness is at good level, aftertase is bitter but not dry.
Great body and carbonation.

Served chilled into a fluted tulip.

Pours a hazy bronze color with an inch plus of airy beige head that slowly recedes leaving moderate surface layer and lacing.

Very strong earthy, spicy aroma.

Very well balanced flavor profile. Earthy, grassy, hint of lemon with pepper and spices.

Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation that gives it a crisp finish. Earthy aftertaste on the back of the tongue.

Overall, I really enjoyed this saison. I was afraid from the aromas it was going to focus too much on one flavor or another. However, it is very well balanced and pleasant.
