I purchased this can at the Fridge poured chilled into a willybecker

The color is pale golden with floating suspended matter--thick 2 finger white head with fine bead and lace sticks as retention is good. The smell is earthy yeast with an herbal hop aroma and mild sweet floral accent with slight hay-like odor. The feel is dry with slight bitter texture and moderately high carbonation with light woody texture and dry yeast with crisp toasted finish.

The taste starts mildly bitter with light yeast spice on entery with mild earthy and cracker-like malt with gentle alcohol in the back with some mild grainy aspects and slight fruity taste coming from the yeast. Overall this is a very flavorful and traditional tasting saison with herbal hop and dry character with medium strength. Pretty drinkable with great yeast flavor and dry finish

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: My can produced lots of sediment and floaters in the pretty apricot body, but not much head, no lace, and went flat pretty fast. (in contrast to a side-by-side of Rayon Vert by Green Flash which is explosive and shampoo lacy.)

Smell: Complex aroma: husky grains, stone fruit, fall orchard, melon, white pepper, spice and honey.
And apples.

Taste: Grows more intense and floral, starting with a bready opening, that frames the Belgian complex character, with melon, stone fruit, apples, honey, hay, lots of honeysuckle and flowers, and white pepper/herbal spice, then the peppery/herbal flavors and honey intertwine in a long, long finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, great finish, with low carbonation

Drinkability: Honey sweet, with balancing complexity and bitter notes. Great with soft cheese, in tonight's case, Camembert.

Well, I feel lots of bitterness, which almost overwhelm everything. However the bitterness lower down when it is warmer, and when finish the drink , there seem to be flavor in your month.
The aroma is the best thing about this beer , smells attractive, attracting you to get closer, though at the first sip, it's really bitter.
I don't feel the spiciness mentioned by others, nor other tastes like citrous or something else, because the bitterness is just too strong ):
