I had my doubts about this beer. Not the actual quality or taste that the brewery produces, but the actual beer I purchased at Sam's in Chicago. It was kind of tucked away behind some Vapeur de Cochonne like a forgotten toy collecting dust. I had never tried it, so I thought "What the hell" and bought it.

I'm glad I did.

Cork popped off with ease and the beer started to foam slowly out the top. I caught it in my Chimay goblet and poured out the bright hazed golden brew making a big fluffy white head. What a sight! Carbonation was ebullient and a slow motion beer-volcano continued to percolate up through the neck of the bottle to the opening where in created more of a head than a mess. The head in the glass slowly succumbed to a thin mottled blanket on top the beer.

Smell is rather complex and pleasant. Lemon zest, beeswax, honey, wheat beer like phenols, sulphur, and flowers. Lemon is the most prominent, but they are all in there.

Taste is a biting zing of lemon with an immediate herbal dry bitterness that softly ends in a light sweetness. Refreshing!

Mouthfeel is slightly thin with a carbonation bite, but it leaves a nice dryness that makes me want another sip.

Highly drinkable. Bring on a hot summer for this one!

Pours a slightly hazy amber with huge billowing white head, big dollop remains, glass streaked in chunky lace. Smell: white grape, apricot, doughy, lightly spicy and sweet... grainy but then an unexpected pina colada note. Taste: bready, white grapes, nectarine, orange citrus notes towards the finish. Light-medium bodied, pillow carb, attenuation just right. Yeah, this is well done. Thank goodness for the cage in 'corked and caged', also this one was a delayed pipe-snake foamer.

Big thanks to hoppypocket for sending this our way in a great trade.

A: Pours a slightly cloudy pale wheat with tight white head and plenty of lacing.

S: Bright lemons with light yeasty bread and a slight dankness. Hints of dried wood or sawdust in the background.

T: Upfront notes of tart lemons along with yeasty bread, white pepper and mineral notes.

M: Light bodied with active carbonation and a drying finish.

O: A refreshing and light saison that paired perfectly with sushi.

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
