BB Oct 2014.

Cloudy golden yellow with a very large, full-looking white head. Good retention.

Smell is dry, spices and lemon, slightly funky horse blanket. Wheat.

Taste is like the nose. Tart lemon, yeast, spices (white pepper, clove), wheat, a bit of funk. Other light fruits: a bit of green apple. Dry. Good.

Medium bodied, high carbonation. A bit irritating.

Overall, a very good saison and a true classic.

Beer presents awesomely in the 750ml corked bottle. Lovely pale colour with spritey carbonation. Nice flakes of yeast floating around. Nose is divine, doesnt get much better than this. Pure freshness. On the tongue I get dryness, apple skins, lemon zest, prickly champagne-like carbonbation on the tongue. Not hugely complex, but doesnt need to be.

Pale straw colored pour its dark yellow to marigold in my glass. Illustrious, large head gives a foamy bath to every surface it can cling to.

Smells like a hayloft. A hayloft, sunburnt skin and minty hop.

Tastes like wet hay and mint hops. Nice dry finish. Chewy and refreshing.

One of those archetypical beers that one can't consider the style without including this beer. Up there with Fantome.

Enjoyed in a tulip glass

A: pours a very bright golden color that is very hazy and has ample carbonation bubbles, pours with tons of head that is very large bubbled and pure white, lingers beautifully before dissipating and leaving a great amount of lacing
S: a very nice lemon zest note, bright, light peppery notes, grassy
T: very nice light and bright taste, not as peppery as many other saisons i have seen, highly drinkable, slight lemon note, definitely grassy, finishes slightly bitter
M: gentle carbonation, smooth, think but with a distinct character to it almost like i can taste the yeast in suspension, slightly dry on the finish
O: a really delicious and incredibly drinkable saison, extremely refreshing and beautifully balanced

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Hazy gold with a billowing white head. Patches of fluffy cotton candy lace.

Scent is funky horse blanket and hay with green apple, pear, cloves and white pepper.

Taste not quite as interesting as the scent. Very dry. Spicy - cloves and white pepper. Mild fruit notes, primarily underripe pear. Lemon. Very slight hint of bubblegum.

Clean, refreshing, impressively dry and easy to drink.

A classic but not my favorite saison.
