A: Thick, chunky, off-white head that doesn't quit. Cloudy golden with heavy lacing. Appearance is nothing special, it looks like a macro beer.

S: Nose is bready, malty, yeasty with an abrupt finish of wet hay. Mild, almost undetectable raisin note. I wish the scent didn't cut off into mustiness so abruptly.

T: Yeasty, with a heavy finish of sourdough bread. There is moderate amount of funk, with the flavors of raisins, nuts and a slight note of brown sugar. Very satisfying.

M: Heavy carbonation with big bubbles and a fizzy mouthfeel. Medium body with a refreshing finish.

O: This is a very drinkable beer. It might even be sessionable if it weren't for the slightly above-average ABV.

A great classic saison right out of Belgium. The bottle popped off like champagne revealing a nice opaque golden ale with plenty of carbonation. The nose had some earthy phenols with mild sweetness. I did not think of it smelling pear-like, but now that I see other people describe it that way I certainly agree.

Taste was very good, the earthy phenols from the Belgium yeast come out right away, along with a gentle dosage of hops, with leads to a somewhat wheaty, cleanly malted taste and finishes with the hint of fruity sweetness and earthy flavors again. This saison has a smooth satisfying mouthfeel and a real crisp, bubbly finish that makes you go "Ahhh!" and want some more.

This is not the must unique of flavor-laden saison out there, but has a fine balance and was a fine drink on a summer evening on the porch, I found.

Poured from 330ml bottle. Foam leaked from bottle top and poured with big white head with foam peaks. Settled to 1/2 inch head and held. Golden with orange hue, hazy, and heavily carbonated. Sediment.

Aroma is has a light strawberry, nutmeg, pear and vanilla.

Taste is creamy, malty, with light crackery malt and bitter. Tannins and slight tart

Mouthfeel is creamy and carbonated.

Overall, a smooth tasty saison
