Good thing I had the bottle pointing away from me, as the cork suddenly blew out and bounced off the ceiling without being touched. Somebody is just one bad luck day from losing an eye on these damned Belgian corks. Really fruity aroma is outstanding, and inescapable on every sip.

I would call this more of a Saison with the rich and mellow taste. If it's not Brett, it sure tastes like it to me. Deeply funky. Less of the drying effect of most Belgian yeast. Pineapple and yeast flavors, with some spiciness.

A totally distinctive brew that should be tried just for the education. From the 750 ml Belgian-style bottle purchased at Bottleworks in San Diego for 14 bucks.

Poured from 750ml bottle into Chimay goblet.

A - Straw gold pour, hazy with a fine white foam.

S - Lemon zest, brett, hayloft.

T - Floral citrus followed by a smooth, mild sweetness. A faint grassy flavor comes through from the hops.

M - Light with a fine carbonation, finishes dry, almost champagne-like.

A smooth refreshing beer. A unique version of the style bringing thoughts of springtime and the daffodils for which it's named.

Rare beer club beer. This is another one of those beers that make me happy to be I the club. I never would have picked this up off the shelf in a store. This a a really nice beer. Doesn't smell like much, but it really comes through on flavor perfect summer beer. Crisp but flavorful.
