Part of b-day bash of saisons.
This is really quite good and unique.
Fresh aroma with sweet and tart citrus esp. lemon.
Pale yellow. Slightly cloudy. Big full white head with great stamina.
Really complex drink. Fruit, vanilla (with an oak quality), touch of sweetness up front, nice herbal flavors (chamomile?). Moderately dry and it grows as it lingers.
Smooth and takes on a creamy quality in time. Higher carbonation levels. Slight heat in the gut.
Overall really enjoyable. Well done and consistent with my experiences with this brewery.

Opened with a loud pop from a magnum. Poured into a tulip. Huge white head over golden brew with bubbles coming nonstop from the bottom of the glass. It looks like Duvel, which is the highest compliment I can give it. The only difference is the head is not meringue like. Just a regular soft foam head. Great looking beer nonetheless. Good retention and nice soft lacing

The smell is very clean and lemony. Great smell for a summer beer. Slightly hoppy but clean.

Taste is great. Clean dry slightly lemony. It tastes more like a Belgian golden ale than a saison, but really good. The hops are there but not over powering. Super clean finish. Great taste on a hot summer afternoon. The bottle describes this beer as crackling. Agreed.

Mouthfeel is very smooth. Even with the great carbonation, very smooth.

Overall, this beer is a keeper. Really nice clean summer Belgian. I will buy again. Love the slightly hoppy clean taste.
