Judiciously removing the cork here proved to be a mistake, as it's mostly lifeless. Murky yellow with a faint white skim.

Smell is oddly appealing. Yeasty, skunky, slatey and latic. Moderate strength.

Taste is saisonish, yeast and mineral wise. Fruit, but sloppy.

Mouthfeel sucks. Flat and watery. Such an epic fail here, I'm surprised the taste and smell are OK.

Drinkability ok. Really not bad smell and taste wise, but the citically terrible mouthfeel really hampers this beer overall.

Appearance: 22oz bottle poured into a pint glass results in a hazy yellow honey color with a 3" head that hangs around with solid lacing. Good looking Saison.

Smell: Food beer - yes. Good and welcoming - yes. Dominant combo of lemon and spices, pleasant and inviting.

Taste: Strong biscuits, wheat, coriander, lemon zest, apples, banana, and a bit of barnyard stink are what make this a typical saison. Bitterness not so much. Alcohol in the background. Complex and interesting.

Mouthfeel: Carbonated! light to medium bodied. Very crisp. Aftertaste is short.

Overall: easily drinkable, complex flavors keeps it interesting. Worth sharing.

Poure into a Duvel glass.

Pours a cloudy golden orange, no head no lace. Not the best looks.

Brew smells of spicy yeasts, corriander and belgian fruits. Good nose.

Brew tastes pretty good; spicy and yeasts along with the corriander. A good tasting brew, just not a top tier saison. Its pretty good.

A little dissapointed with this one. Its pretty good, just not something to seek out again.
