Review updated 01/22/06:

Scores upped to all 5's. Just a flawless, world-class beer. The standard bearer of the style. Possibly my number one desert island beer. Just untouchable stuff.

2003-dated 750ml bottle

Pours a slightly hazy pale gold with a massive, pure white, meringue-like head that explodes every time new liquid is introduced to the glass. Cobweb-like lacing. The aroma is grassy and earthy, with honey, peppery spiciness, phenolics, musty yeast, oranges and apricots, and flour-like malt. The flavor begins phenolic, with some white pepper spiciness. Midway, the other flavors foretold in the aroma appear: honey, musty and funky yeast, citrus (orange peel and lemon zest), and bready malt. All of these ride atop a rustic, earthy backbone. Hints of leather, iron, and hops towards the end. The finish is extremely dry and completely washes the palate clean. Crisp and clean in body, with a fairly light mouthfeel and huge acidic undercurrent. This fresh bottle is a bit young and rough compared to some of the older bottles of this I’ve had. Still one of the best examples of the saison style…a classic brew.

I was able to try this at a local liquor store and was hooked on this saison ever since. The saison pours well with a good size head, has the cloudy unfiltered look you expect to find. The color is a nice golden color, overall it's a great easy drinking beer.
