This saison was served in a St. Feuillien goblet and showed off a glowing golden body that had enough orange highlights to make it difficult to tell the difference. Some large carbonation bubbles rise to the surface to support the white head that faded rather quickly. There's was some decent peaks and valley of lacing left along the glass after each drink but the head could have used better retention.

The nose is full of spices and fruitiness. This isn't your typical green apple, grassy, musty saison; this is loaded with fruit like melon and mild peach with a lack of hoppiness. There's a touch of clove and cinnamon which make for an enjoyable combination with the melon and peach. A slight wheaty twang brings up the rear. It's a unique saison and pretty interesting, there seems to be a touch more sweetness than some of the better saisons out there.

The flavor follows the aroma closely. Semi-sweet fruitiness starts things off and rides all the way through with melon, peach, some red apple and a couple other random fruits. The yeast throws off a lot of spicy esters; cinnamon and soft clove being the two most noticeable. The malt backbone has a bit of caramel and a wheaty twang. This is a good saison in a little different vein when compared to my favorites.

The mouthfeel is a surprise. It's not as bubbly airy as others which leave the body a bit heavier, medium bodied to be exact, but it still finishes semi-dry even with the sweetness that seems to be in the flavor.

The goblet went down easy and I would have liked another. It wasn't worth another order when a big tap list is around but I'll surely pick up a bottle or two whenever they land.

St. Feuillien's Saison is a good attempt at the style. It's not in line with the best out there, far off actually, but there's a big gap between the good saisons and the great saisons. If you see a bottle around your local shop, pick it up and give it a try.
