Served bottle poured into a delirium tremens snifter

A - For me this was a classic example of a saison color and clarity. Orangey deep yellow color that poured cloudy with a significant amount of carbonation (exemplified by the almost champagne burst when opened).

S - Boozy sour nose. Definitely has a sour orange citrusy funk the "singes the nostrils" a bit.

T - Sour patch candy feel. Familiar funky saison profile with a sweeter sip. The lemon wood again is apparent with the overall sour citrus taste. Has that high alcohol boozy throat to the finish. For me this is a one serving beer. The large format bottle is best split 3 ways.

M - Great smooth mouthfeel. The sour candy taste makes you want to drink this ale fast. Almost need to remind yourself of the ABV on this one.

O - Never have been the biggest saison fan but overall this is a more than decent example. The beer is tangy, sweet and surprisingly drinkable considering the stats. Love collaboration efforts and this one is for sure worth the price and hangover.

Served in godblet. (Chimay signature glass) Vintage bottle dated November 2011.

Appearance: A cloudy orange, heavy heavy bubbles on the body with

Smell: Has a sweet orange smell, honestly one sniff isn't enough. It doesn't make love your nostrils like some other saison but on quality if the hit its more than enough.

Taste: complexity at it's finest, just a little bit sweet with a orange skin feel and no doubt a little bit of lemon. Has lift bitterness and a dose of sour that literally quenches your thirst.

Mouth: medium and smooth, goes down too easy. Zesty finish at the end feels like pure lemon skin coming off a hint dry.

Overall: This is the almost perfect warm weather beer. No joke, paired with a nice cigar in your back yard you really don't need nothing else. Salud!
