750mL bottle (code L111278?) poured into a Hennepin glass. Bright funky acidic aroma bursts forth from the mouth before I even tip the bottle.

A massive white head tops a slightly hazy straw ale w/ explosive Alka-Seltzer carbonation erupting from the bottom of the glass. This head hangs around forever, gradually settling to a foamy, creamy pillow. It doesn't leave lacing behind; it leaves big fluffy chunks of foam clinging to the side of the glass. Quite simply, this beer looks gorgeous.

Aroma is funky and a little acidic from a mile off. Lemons, vinegar and Belgian yeast fill the air. Bring the nose closer though, and the yeast overshadows the more acidic elements.

Taste is light, a little spicy, yeasty, and slightly citrusy. Really great balance, super refreshing. Everything is crisp, light, dry, and palate cleansing. Carbonation tickles the tongue.

Overall for me, this beer embodies the saison style. Understated but elegant, a perfect pairing with almost any food. Just a hint of funk without ever being overwhelming. This is one I'll keep stocked as long as they keep making it. To be completely trite and cliché, a timeless classic.
