3.3/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

A: Yellow with tingles of orange. Hazy, no carbonation is visible.

S: Very buttery, with yeast, fruit, and light spices hiding behind it.

T: Again, buttery, but more pronounced fruit and coriander/white pepper notes, yeast still a minimal part. Good finish. Not very saison like, but enjoyable.

M: To be repetitive, buttery, velvety, but with some carbonation to mix it up.

O: I don't mind a beer with diacetyl, but this is on another level. Not welcome in a saison. I liked it, but as a beer geek I can't approve of it- surprising, coming from such a renowned brewery.
