750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Pale orange. Nice head. Nice surface foam.

Smell - Funky and citrusy. A little tropical. A bit of yeast. some Belgian sugars.

Taste - Very hoppy. Otherwise kinda bland. Yeasty again. Pale malts and leas funk. A little bitter.

Mouthfeel - medium body. Otherwise a nice saison.

Overall - Decent, but nothing better than what my local shop has.

This years release, not retired, and probably a duplicate.

Pours a bright saturated orange, a finger of white foam on top. Spotty lace around the edges of the glass.

Musty oaky aroma with a juicy citrus quality, peach pit, fuzzy sweetness.

Bright peachy acidity in the taste, grapefruit, yogurty lacto, wet wood, oaky tannic bitterness briefly in the dry aftertaste. Crisp acidity, refreshingly tart verging on sour. Somewhere in the realm of Fantome and Fantasia, somewhat lambic-esque. Overall it's tasty and nicely complex and cohesive.
