3.53/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

750ml corked and caged bottle served in my Weyerbacher tulip. Pours a golden yellow with a fizzy/fluffy, three inch, bright white head that quickly dissipates. There is quite a bit of carbonation evident in solution. Head eventually settles into a frothy, quarter inch cap. Nose is fairly clean - lemon zest in the foreground, a light herbal presence in the background as well as some grassiness and maybe a touch of candi sugar. Taste consistent with nose; however, first impressions make it a bit difficult to tease out the flavors due to the gassy/prickly carbonation levels. Once the carbonation subsides, the flavor profile comes off a bit watered down. Mouthfeel is light in body with a little acidity and an overly assertive, gassy carbonation. Overall - nothing to write home about. Flavors are a bit lackluster and the carbonation is just a little too aggressive. Not bad, but there are better examples of the style out there.

Picked up this bottle as a comparaison avec La Vermontoise

At first pop of the cork, I can already tell that this is a less "dank" version of La Vermontoise. However, this beer should not be viewed as a lesser Vermontoise, it is still equally powerful. The beer pours beautiful gold with a cumulonimbus head and still smells of "dank". What is dank you might ask? It is spelt, belgian yeast, some hop body, but mostly the odeur pénible that is marijuana. This beer tastes like a perfect Belgian saison that wipes the sweat off your brow when the temps get above 70˚ and there is NOT a blizzard dumping over 12" of snow in March happening outside. The mouthfeel is balanced just as well as the taste, well carbonated, sweet, crisp, and Belgian. Overall, La Vermontoise still remains my favorite Saison of all time, however, this is extremely under-rated and much easier to access (for me at least). Very solid representation

Bottle. Blond pour with thick white foamy head. Aroma of belgian yeast, cereal, wheat (epeautre), relatively plain. Taste is your regular yeasty Blaugies saison with a more pronunced sweetness. A very good. easy drinking, not filling, neutral beer that goes well with any dish. Another lovely saison by Blaugies

a beautiful clean light golden straw-yellow in color with lots of fluffy white head, tons of visible carbonation.. a really really nice looking saison. the aroma is a bit funky/skunky.. lots of pilsner malt is present, wheat, grassy hops, funky yeast, with a bit of an overall skunk-like scent (but not a bad one like a skunked beer). the flavor is slightly bitter up front followed by a bready grain bill, slight coriander spice, lemongrass, and a nice bready and peppery belgian yeast strain. medium in body with a very high amount of carbonation, i feel like this is the weakest point for the beer - if it were a tiny bit less carbonated, it'd be perfect.

this is an extremely refreshing, tasty, and beautiful looking beer. this honestly tastes more like a light belgian blonde ale, so if you see this around - and aren't a huge fan of saisons, i suggest to give it a shot.. it may be your gateway into the style.

Pours a pale yellow-orange with an aggressive white head. There's a fair bit of sediment in the bottle, so clarity depends on your bottle handling. Choose your own adventure. The head is enormous. It's a touch fizzy, but it takes awhile for the bubbles to die down. The aroma is full of fresh grain and earthy saison yeast. Apricots, dough, mushrooms, a little floral/herbal hops. Wet barnyard. The taste starts with a touch of fresh grain sweetness, sugarcane and dough. Then, the beer dries out quite a bit, and things finish with a sour twang. Lemons, light herbal hop bitterness. Lots of tart, under-ripe stone fruit. Very refreshing. Wonderful interplay of grain and yeast. Mouthfeel starts out very light and effervescent. The carbonation is prickly. Crisp. Once the gas dies down, there's a bit more grain fullness, but this is still a light-bodied beer. This would be excellent on a hot day. It's light and refreshing with a flavor that keeps the palate wanting more. It's a shame this beer doesn't get more attention.
