2009 bottle. needed to be cracked open much sooner. lost a lot of carbonation. Good but didn't hold up to age that well

Way past it's prime, even refrigerated for past many years.

Bottled in 2009. This is probably 3 years past it's prime. It kind of tastes like apple juice. Low carb, not bad by any means, but tasting kind of old.

Served in a Duvel tulip glass.

Gotta put out there initially that I'm drinking this with a couple years on it, mostly to see how it's holding up. It pours a slightly hazy golden-straw topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises grass, musty hay, light clove, light musty orange peel, and a twist of lemon. The taste brings in more of the same, along with some flowers and a pinch of what seems to be black pepper. All of the flavors kinda collide a bit near the finish, making for a muddled sort of experience. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation, a slightly watery feel, and a drying finish. Overall, still a pretty decent saison, but it's definitely showing its age now.

22oz. bomber: Hiding in the back of the fridge. This one pours a clear golden color. There was a small white head that lingered a short while. The nose is good. Earthy and grassy notes are the main items. Some spices with a hint of peaches. The taste is good. Very clean and crisp. Hints of citrus and peaches to the taste. Somewhat lighter body. Slightly spicy and just a bit dry. A very nice beer!

Two finger frothy head with good retention and lacing on a clear golden body. Aroma is mostly tropical fruit with mostly pineapple, some lemon custard, a little grainy and little in the way of Belgian character. Flavor is a little understated, the Belgian yeast goes well with the creaminess, fruits are mild and mostly are of lemon. The herbal flavors are generic. Creamy body, pretty dry finish, moderate carbonation. I don't know how age may have affected this one. I had this one stored and forgot about it. It's easy to drink just bland.
