Cloudy light amber color, the nose is amazing, coffee and cacao, is that crazy or what. The taste adds some hint of caramel. This is really good beer. Pricey but worth it . Rather drink this and leave my children less. Nicely crafted beer

Pours a hazy yellow with a significant head typical os saisons. Very pleasant to look at in the glass. The taste seems to hit my sweet spot, not over the top. If it weren’t for the cost this could be a daily favorite. Not overly aromatic but you can tell your drinking a saison before the first taste.

Hazy pale yellow with a finger of relatively short-lived, bright white head.

A floral hop bouquet with soap and hint of fruity sweetness in the aroma.

More soap and floral hops up front in the taste. Muted cider-like sweetness mingles with a fairly strong earthy bitterness in the aftertaste.

Full bodied with a prickly, very highly carbonated feel that cleanses the palate.

The dull hoppy bitterness of this always catches me off guard. Not my favorite saison, but its standing as the classic in the style against which others are judged is still well-deserved.

This is the benchmark for Saisons. Pairs perfectly with any food. Has a great dry finish. If you haven’t had this beer try it now. Perfect balance of earthiness, spice, floral flavors and citrus.

From the bottle, it pours a hazy golden color with a nice head. The head lasts for a good long while. Nose is yeasty and slightly fruity. Taste is on the dry side (which I desire tonight) and is even slightly bitter, although definitely thirst quenching. Yum!
