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.

Have been enjoying this one for years, in fact it was one of my first Belgian beers over 20 years ago. Finally got around to reviewing it.

Poured into a New Belgium globe.

Pours a hazy gold with a huge, three fingered, frothy head. The stark white is very slow to drop, not sure if it ever will. Head is mainly made up of tiny bubbles when viewed through the side of the glass, on top, it looks like a very rocky meringue. Big, chunky lacing.

Aromas of lemons, lemon zest, peppery yeast. Earthy, with a touch of barnyard funk.

Flavors of peppery, signature yeast, tobacco, lemons and zest. Barnyard funk. Now I can name the difference between great American versions of saison and this classic, it's that touch of tobacco in the flavor profile. Good bite from the carbonation. Finish is short, with the lemony funk leaving its mark in the fade.

Mouthfeel is dry, not quite bone dry, with a spot on level of carbonation.

Overall, this is the saison that all others are measured. Enough said.
