Pours a huge head and shows some nice lace.

Spicy aroma and flavour with hints of barnyard straw. A bit more wild than the cleaner DuPont.

Fairly full body is well carbed, with a drying finish.

Thanks again Papat444!

Slightly hazy golden color with fluffy, white head. Aroma has yeast notes, malts, a bit of honey sweetness and a bit of farmhouse character. Taste starts with honey, malt and yeast notes and gets slightly bitter in the finish. Medium body with crisp carbonation. Very well made, rustic and earthy saison.

Slightly hazy straw color with low activity. Foamy white 3 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with strong legs.

Fresh floral and fruity scent. Flavors of strawberries, banana, tropical fruits, pears, peach, and citrus wow. Fresh fruity vinous sugary feel with a citrus sharpness, well balanced.

Slick medium body with champagne like carbonation. Strong spicy finish of moderate length, ending with a powerful dash of spices that lingers a little but clears out quickly.

Overall an excellent craft having a pleasant bouquet and very good flavors. A little bit overly spicy but still the freshness is quite good and smooth to drink.

Nice looking beer, cloudy with lots of carbonation and a 1-inche head. Smells like a traditionnal saison, nothing impressibe there. But tastes really good. I get some smoked malts in the finish that are really interrsting. Good beer but a little overpriced in my opinion.

A:
Pours a glowing, warm goldenrod with a pristine 3+ fingers of creamy white froth that slowly settles to two rocky fingers. Excellent retention; quite a bit of lacing. (4.5)

S:
Sweet yeast and tropical hops. Doughy yeast, potpurri, clove, white pepper, mango, spicy herbs. (4)

T:
Dry and sweet/peppery. Flowers, dough, orange rind, pepper, chalk, earthy/herbal hops. (4)

M:
Smooth and velvety, creamy with champagne-like carbonation and a medium body; drinkable, quick dry finish. (4)

O:
Very good Saison. Spicy and sweet yet dry and refreshing.
Tastes much lighter and cleaner than I would have expected with wheat and oatmeal added to it.
Pours absolutely lovely and smells pretty enticing. It's flavor is dryly spiced but clean and a touch floral-sweet.
Very nice. Rich and refreshing. Drinkable and filling. Big and subtle.
Would have again; worth trying. (4.25)
