Thanks to Bboyshatter for another fine brew.
Bottle 1531 of 2008 that I poured into a Chimay goblet produced plenty of carbonation but no head or lace. The color of the brew was a nice looking hazy peach color with tons of bubbles coming from the bottom of the glass.

Aromas of sweet apricots, and funk filled my head. The flavors is very sweet, and fruity as well. The mouthfeel is nice and crisp so it is very refreshing to drink

This is a fine Saison also easy to drink. I finished the bottle, and was looking for more. This brew really is worth the try

Bottle 1085 of 2008 - poured into a snifter for a clear ruby tinted seethru brown body with a quick dieing head. huge amount of caramel and roasted malt with some yeast and oragne in there, along w/ oak, syrup and earthy hops. A sticky and fuller bodied beer, but surprisingly smooth and sweet with roasted, caramel and hints of chocolate malt coming through. Balanced well with some tart and sour fruits like orange and something akin to raspberry(?). Finishes dry and easy with hints of coffee and biscuit malt. A chill beer which caught me offguard; reminded me of a Belgian Ale or a barleywine more than an a American Ale.

Bottle number 1491 of 2008.

Pours a beautiful amber color, remarkably carbonated but with a thin, quickly fading head. Surprisingly tannic and fruity (it actually reminded me strongly of a dry white wine). The taste was not particularly hoppy and not particularly sweet. Not unpleasant to drink, but not a spectacular beer.
