From Leura.

A - hazy straw, delightful pillowy white head.

S - Lemons, Belgian yeast, little funk, grains.

T - BIG flavours. Lemons to the fore, funk, cloves, earthy hops, and whilst the inital flavour is big to massive, the taste dies rather too quickly in comparison to the big initial hit.

M - silky smooth, medium carbonation, light to medium weight, amazingly no hint of big ABV. Carbonation seems to die once beer has been in glass.

O - a welcome return to form, many recent saisons have been poor, but this is a good example. Odd to think there is no hint of 9% anywhere in this beer.

A very hazy pale gold brew pours with a pure white head initially about a finger and a half tall. Retention is good, and some pretty heavy deposits of patching are left on the glass.
The nose offers a bit of funk, lemon zest, a bit of spiciness, yeasty esters and some grassiness along with a bready malt backing.
Funk is a little lighter in the flavor, and along those lines the grassiness is a little stronger. It's plenty lemony, with a tart/sour mix, but what's really interesting is the sugary sweetness. It's not cloying, but in this beer I think it takes something away from the depth and diminishes the tartness. Yeasty elements add some clove and spiciness.
The body is on the bigger side of light but with some effervescence to it. It's got a consistent crispness and is a little frothy, almost creamy. Alcohol sneaks into the finish without thinning it out too much, though it adds a certain sharpness.

750ml bottle into a wine glass

A: Pours a hazy golden color with two fingers of white head. Tons of carbonation activity throughout the beer with keeps the head atop the beer for the entire thing. Lacing is extremely good.

S: Very bright in character. I get lemon zest, musty funk, and a touch of clove. I also get a nice ginger note to keep the beer feel appropriately spring-like and light.

T: A bright lemon zest character is accompanied by strong wheat. Quite musty with a nice grassiness that goes very well with the beer. Again, this beer seems very spring-like, but I know the name of the beer is biasing me. Clove is also there, but not particularly strong for the style and not as strong it was in the aroma.

M: Medium thickness with fairly strong carbonation, a touch soapy.

O: A nice, clean Saison - very refreshing with no hint of ABV. Recommended.

A - first pour is a almost a crystal clear deep yet sunny yellow with some traces of amber. Big, froathy white foam which only a true bottle conditioned belgian ale can produce. Second pour is more cloudy yet still bright.

S - nose is very classic Belgian. Banana and clove just invade the nostrils. Hints of Funky, skunky euro hops along with clean crisp citrusy notes. Grainy malt profile, notes of cereal and cracked wheat.

T - sweet cereal. Grainy flavors. Clovey spice notes. Only intensifies as it runs to the center of the tounge. Soft soothing banana notes. Zippy, funky, tangy citrus and some leafy greens on the backend.

M - full bodied. Creamy texture. Super smooth.

O - great beer. Full bodied. Was quite impressed by the mouthfeel. Full flavored. Another outstanding beer from glaze toren.
