Straw yellow with thick rocky white head. What can I say, this aroma and flavor is what I fell initially fell love with for saisons. Spicy yeast, citrus zest, mild funk. THE standard.

On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Billed as "Saison Vieille Provision". Everything here is subtle. The aroma, the tase & the ABV.

Blink & you miss the vanila. Think on it too long & the flavor escapes. But all things considered this is very high quality brew.. Looking for a quaff? Keep looking.

Looking for something to linger over....pilgrim, your search has ended.

Pull up a chair.

750 ml bottle, 2015 version (can't determine the day, the label was ripped) poured into a tulip glass. Pours a translucent cloudy orange, with three fingers of head that slowly dissapates for the length of the glass. The aroma is of classic Belgian yeast, some lemon and touch of dirt/funk. Taste follows suit, with some banana and bubblegum added to the mix. Occasionally, some hints of grapes/white wine enter the fray. The mouthfeel is sturdy, and the carbonation is medium with an occasional smoothness. First time trying it, and it lives up to the hype. Definitely worth a try, especially during the summer months.

Poured into a wine glass. Slightly hazy golden yellow color with a very generous frothy white head that lasted for the entire drink. Prominent floral aromas, with pear, lemon, white pepper, and dough. A mild farmhouse funk as well. The taste ws as expected. Same notes as above, but the theme was a zesty bready flavor with spicy and floral undertones. Very dry on the finish. Outstanding.

"How can it be permissible?
She compromise my principle, yeah, yeah
That kind of love is mythical
She's anything but typical"

Great Saison! And I think Robert Palmer was drinking this when he wrote Simply Irresistible. Way to go Bob. Reviewed after my 2nd 750ml bottle.
