I feel this one was a little past its prime.

Pours a slightly cloudy straw coloration with a large, creamy head and lightly visible carbonation. Smell is a little muted, but with subtle notes of citrus, green apple and hints of straw and grass. Taste is dominated by biscuity, doughy malt and estery yeast notes, with light hoppy accents. Green apple, citrus and straw are at the forefront, with lighter notes of grass and clove/coriander. Starts out with a certain malt sweetness that is nicely complemented by a very subtle tartness and light bitterness in the aftertaste. Finishes quite dry and somewhat bittersweet, with a mild spiciness lingering in the aftertaste. Soft, almost sparkling mouthfeel with a medium body and medium/lively carbonation. This has a great balance going for it, but is perhaps a little bland, which may well be to style.

Excellent Belgian saison! Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass. Bright, slightly cloudy yellow color with a fluffy white head and good lacing.

Pleasantly fragrant sweet lemon smell and taste. Honey and rosemary. Earthy spices. Enjoyed it very much!

amber gold color, big head, savory aromas intertwined with malty, biscuity flavors and some apple, pear sweetness that makes it pair well with rich, salty dishes

A: Pours an a warm amber gold with a creamy, two finger head.
S: Immediate green-apple notes, and some sublty cheesy aromas, some understated pepper and lemon here as well.
T: Immediately warm, biscuity and malt forward, with a clean bitterness, and some tartness and lemon, with slight pepper, the yeast is somewhat more reserved but very pleasant, reminds me of saison dupont in that way. Some hints of pineapple come through and peach, slightly sweet as well.
M: Medium plus body, dry, but it could be more dry.
O: This is a really nice beer, and one I'm glad I finally got the chance to try, my only complaints are as follows: I wish it was a tad less sweet, a tad more dry, and had a more expressive yeast character. It is definitely worth your time, I think I may prefer this to Saison DuPont, if only slightly. This seems like a beer I could enjoy any time, but I won't commit to that since this is my first experience with it, give it a shot.

It was a Belgian Christmas this year! No bottle date, 8.0% ABV.

Pours a pale hazy gold, nice inch and a half of white foam and some even but thin lace around the glass.

Aromas of clove, belgian yeast, slight spiciness and pale malt.

Many of the same qualities as on the nose. A nice sweet Belgian profile. Very slight spiciness balanced by hints of honey. Dry, tastes of clove, yeast, and citrus... light, balanced.. a great saison.

Light, effervescent, bubbly and dry. A true Lentebier.

Cheers!

750ml purchased at Bootleggers in Paris. Pours a bit hazy and pale, with a large fluffy head that leaves good lace. Nose is soft compared to some saisons, but has nice citrus, floral, and earthy components. Subtle and refined. Taste has pear, citrus, cracker, and floral notes. Like the nose, subtle and refined. Great champagne-like mouthfeel. A great beer to pour instead of wine or champagne at dinner.

Read other reviewer's details as my palette is not so advanced.

Had this on tap in a tulip.

This beer is quite compelling. Sans the look and nose which are on par, put a few drops of this on your palette. I sensed many variations of sensation not present on the VAST MAJORITY of beers today.

Another reviewer mentioned this "going back" to to what saisons were and should be. I concur.

Now halfway through the serving. Can I say "Dammit man"? This isn't one that you simply must tell Mom about, but it is close.

Nose
Earthy.

Look
Foggy dim amber.

Taste
Hodge podge special mix. :-). See other's reviews. It's like a family recipe.

Mouthfeel
Balanced in the saison way. Every sesnsation is tested.

Overall
A diamond in the rough. Saisons of late don't impress me as that first Fantome did. Having that "next" new iteration leaves me wondering what happened to the Style. This beer should bring you back into the fold.

Kumquats, lemongrass, and white pepper. Lemon meringue. Spicy and peppery. Crackery malts, chamomile.

Lightly hazy pale gold yellow with a large frothy white head. Long lasting head retention, and great lacing.

Big rich lemons, oranges, and kumquats followed quickly with peppery phenols. Vanilla, almond, graham cracker. Lightly tart, dry, with bracing bitterness.

Juicy, medium bodied with high carbonation. Long, lingering but dry finish.

Thirst quenching, delicious. Juicy fruits with peppery phenols balanced nicely. Well-hopped and complex.
