11.2oz can purchased at Pilgrim's in Coeur d'Alene, ID. Forgot the price, probably around $6-7. No obvious freshness date, though "AD-007" is stamped on the bottom of the can. I certainly hope this is not 11 years old.

Poured into a St. Bernardus goblet, this was a hazy shade of apricot, with lots of visible sediment when held up to light. Head more restrained than I expected, with little in the way of lace.

Spicy and mildly fruity in the nose. Typical Belgian yeast esters.

Spicy, fruity, dry,with a tiny bit of unexpected honey-like sweetness just before the swallow, which is crisp and dry.

Light-to-medium bodied, with that effervescent Belgian mouthfeel that seems so hard for American breweries to duplicate.

Nice saison. Not a world-beater, but quite enjoyable.

A cloudy apricot with a one finger tan head which soon diminished to a thin layer.
Brett forward in the nose. Some fruitiness.
Taste is fruity and yeasty. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness.
Light body and low carbonation.
Very smooth and true to the style.

Opened at fridge door temp. Could not pour it into a pint glass. A very frothy head that settled down quickly. A bit more hops than my taste; but don't look a gift horse in the mouth. Thanks to my friend Jane for this.

11.2oz can, stamped AD-007. Thick & creamy ivory colored head slowly fades atop an orangey-copper colored body with plenty of yeast suspended within. Great farmhouse yeast nose with spice, fruit, bread, cracker, grassy & spicy hops. Nice flavors with the yeast being at the fore-front; notes of fruity esters, bready & spicy yeast, grassy & spicy hops. Medium body, silky smooth, and a very dry finish. I like this. It's nice and refreshing with some solid flavors.

Murky, unfiltered, dark orange in color. Poured with a moderate, creamy, bright white that quickly reduced to a stixky, soapy cap. Bready, malty aromas with sweet fruit and banana esters. Light spicy notes in the background. Medium bodied with medium light carbonation. Rich, creamy, smooth feel through the middle followed by light warmth toward the end. Sweet banana and solid malt flavors from start to finish. Very light peppery notes up front that fade after medium light bitterness through the middle. Sour dough and sweet fruity flavors on the back end. Finished semi-dryly with under ripe banana flavors and light peppery notes. Definitely on the sweeter and maltier side of the style. Also lacked tart or funkiness that has become pretty typical. Tasty and drinkable buy a little lacking in character.

On tap at Mort Subite in Austin.

On the board as a grisette, but its really a saison. I know grisettes, this is not a grisette. Regardless, this beer was not one of my favorite saisons. 3.5

From a can, not a bottle. Light apple-like, or banana-like aroma. More hoppy than the saison's I like, but not at all disagreeable. Wanted more complexity in the taste.
