On tap at the source.

A light straw yellow, this batch that's 4.8% has a massive, dense, white head with excellent retention and lacing. The nose is spicy, earthy, bubblegummy, honey, straw and pepper with clove. Pronounced earthy hop character with some lemon as well. Surprisingly, there's a touch of soapiness as well. Solid. The palate opens mildly bitter, mildly soapy and mildly bitter with a blend of spice, straw like malt and earth. Drying on the finish withhoney and lemon, this is solid.

A: Pours a light golden with a foamy white head.

S: Funky Belgian yeast, cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg in the nose.

T: Sweet and sour like a oud bruin, with some funky Belgian yeast, fruity Belgian yeast esters, lemon, cardamom and nutmeg.

M: Medium bodied, typical saison carbonation.

O: Pretty good. Not one of their best Belgian-style ales, but definitely worth a try if you can find it (I'm assuming tap-only).
