Appearance is a very murky light orange colored beer with white head and sticky lace retention ; small dotted pattern left on the glass. Smells of grass, citrus, peaches, white grape juice, decent smell. Taste is grassy, juicy nectarine, bitey, very danky, hops and bready finish; dry. Overall, this brewery still ranks amongts my favs in the World, the Saison is unique, and probably better on hot summer days, rather than cool nites or stormy winters. Would like to see is one paired with Oysters/Lobster/seafood, or a stone fruit desserts. Humbolt Fog..black or white truffles.

Pretty unremarkable, subdued beer.

Looks good, though. Soft, hazy honey gold, long-lived creamy head that settles to a solid cap and leaves lots of lace. Quite attractive.

Grassy hops dominate the aroma and flavour, noticeable malt backbone. Grains and fruit, a hint of alcohol. Overall very soft and quiet. Gently drying bitter finish. Soft almost watery mouth feel. Comes across almost like a wheat beer.

Drinkable, but not too exciting. Very soft.

500 ml bottle into large wine.

A nice apricot orange colour. No head at all! A circle of fine bubbles around the glass does not account as a head. There is a sparking lacking but not much retention.

A mild aroma. Fruity and grainy.

A mild malt taste with some fruitiness. Noble hops bitterness in the second half of the taste experience.

A medium feel but slightly watery and no carbonation.

Definitely a below average saison. I do not need to try this one again.

Pours a cloudy blonde gold, with a soft creamy cap of white head. Moderately hazy without any visible carbonation. Decent retention and lacing. 3.75

S – smell has a crisp wheat yeasty character. Aromatic lemon, florals, quite fresh, some light white pepper or soft cinnamon spice. Earthy clove and a fieldy aspect to the yeast. 4

T – is light and soft the delving into a full crisp lemony yeast body. Light sweetness with a citrus twist, creamy yeastiness that becomes increasingly dry toward the end. Lots of lemon, woody pepper, pear, hay and a subtle farmy yeast aspect, but this is quite restrained, a prominent but soft yeast brings subtle spice notes over a creamy wheat-body. A full bracing dry finish. A little mild maybe but the balance is there for sure and it works pretty well. 3.75

M – light initially, then a full mouth creamy yeastiness, a bit of a prickle on the finish, with a mild soft carbonation on the palate, a bit lacking, refreshing and very sessionable, alcohol is not noticeable besides an additional light spice. 3.75

A smooth saison that delivers pretty good yeasty spice with a well balanced body. Not overly farmy or wild in yeast character, but the balance is pretty good and it delivers some citrus zestiness with an assertive yeast character. Could see this pairing quite well with lighter food dishes with the nice full crispness. Another quality one from nogne. 4

(3.75) A: Hazy copper with a thin head that quickly recedes to a bubbly ring. Retention leaves soft rings down the glass.

(3.75) S: Grasses, cloves, lemon zest, banana, apricot, and cracker-like grain undertone. A fresh and pleasantly fruity aroma but not as potent and bold as I would prefer.

(3.75) T: As per the aroma, with nice citrus and tropical elements coupled with a dry cracker taste. This isn’t the driest saison with a more full bodied profile that’s also a tad sweet. Enjoying the mix of spices in this.

(4.0) M: Medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Semi-dry with a fairly slick texture. Well rounded.

(3.75) D: This is a nice saison, however, I personally prefer less of a grain focus and more dryness in my saisons. Still worthy of a taste.
