This pours with a tremendous head, so watch out.The color is a yellow straw with tons of carbonation.The smell is very spice filled,with citrus and coriander.The taste,like the smell,is very much spice filled with an aftertaste of sweet malt.A good balanced and light m/f make this a really good beer.This is one beer that I will try again,although I would have rated this higher,but I'm not a big saison fan.

An exceptional classic Saison.High in ABV this beer is the father of modern saisons. Aggressive bottle conditioning means you have to let it rest for a second before pouring. easy drinking while also flavourful, lots of spice, honey, coriander, orange zest, cloves, and a nice dose of hops. This is a pretty crisp beer.

A- Hazy, super cloudy golden with fluffy as hell white head. Intense effervescence. Superb lacing and retention. Love the look of many saisons, but this one is as good as I've seen.

S- Some of the barnyard funk that you get with many of the style, lemon zest, slight clove and spices. Not quite as dank as some others of the style. A nice malt base lingers

T- Fruit, spice, and lots of clove. I seem to be picking up more bubble gum character than I'm used to in saison. Some grain, again, love the malt base of this one. Bitter finish that hangs around between sips.

M- Very crisp. Light body and extremely dry. Refreshing, but maybe a little less body than I prefer. Alcohol nowhere to be found.

O- I can dig it. A little different take on the style (clove) than I have had, but I can certainly see why it is a gold standard.

Brilliant, deep golden color with a creamy white head. Has a high level of carbonation. The aroma is spicy, grainy, with hints of clove. The flavor is sweet, fruity, and spicy; it then flows to a dry, hoppy finish. It is a relatively light bodied, easy drinking beer.

375 ml corked bottle - 2005 on the cork.

Golden color with a huge creamy white head. The head just won't give up, it sticks around forever. When it finally does fall a little it leaves mountains and craters of sticky foam behind. For a pale beer, this looks incredibly appealing. Smell is peppery yeast. Taste like the smell with a pepper bite up front. There is some bready malt taste but no sweetness at all. Very dry and smokey. Finishes with a spicey aftertaste and some bitterness. There is just a touch of fruityness between the intitial pepper and the finishing dryness. This one is proof that a light colored beer dosn't have to lack taste. This one is full of complexity and enjoyable to drink. Thanks to maltygoodness for throwing this one in a trade.

11.2oz bottle into Libbey tulip
unidentifiable date code
L- pours a hazy orange with a huge head, that quickly dissapates into white cap
S- loads of yeast, dryness that some would say is 'crackery', and lemon
T- sweet & yeasty, I'm not gonna lie this reminds me of a Hefewiezen, and continues with some funk, a hint of the lemon shows up as well, with slightest hop bitterness on the finish
F- super creamy and effervescent, with a nice dry tingle
O- this is a classic for a reason, a complex Saison that is the benchmark for the style

A- A very nice golden color, but a bit darker below the head. Nice thick head which took a few minutes to melt down with good lacing along the glass.

S- Not much of anything besides some grassy smell. A little wheat.

T- A bit of pepper as noted by others. Definitely a dry finish.

M- Smooth and easy on the palate.

D- Very drinkable. This would be great on a summer night. The lower ABV makes it more drinkable than other Belgian brews.
