White pepper, spices, flowers, chamomile, apples in the aroma. Some bubblegum too. Strong yeast character with spicy herbal hops. Honey, graham cracker, and orange zest. Slight rustic earthiness.

Pours slightly hazy with a big persistent white head. Great retention and lacing. High carbonation.

Apple skins, spices, and cinnamon graham cracker. A hint of clove. Dry and effervescent. Orange peel. Some interesting holiday spice flavor. Warming and spicy alcohols.

High carbonation and medium light body. Very clean and dry finish with just a hint of lingering spices.

Quite complex and seems a bit more fruit and spice forward than typical Saison Dupont.

Very easy to drink. No spicey notes that I like so much. Very good smooth Saison.

Was 4 years old at a bar, out of a 330 ml bottle. No idea what conditions it aged under (Reuben's in Boulder). Definitely grew on me, wasn't expecting the strawy fruitiness though. Tasted like fruit juice at first, before it warmed. Really weird sediment. Gray, grainy looking slush, like you'd find on a weedy beach bottom.

Poured from a corked & caged 750 mL bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. 2014.

A: Cloudy, golden, honey-colored body. 2 fingers of off-white head. Good retention and nice lacing.

S: Floral hops, Belgian yeast and appetizing earth notes. Candi sugar. Cracker, grass, hay. Fruit notes, including apple, banana, peach and pineapple.

T: Slight tang and mild yeasty spice up front. Pale malts develops quickly alongside a sweet, fruity character. Gently fades into European hops and a semi-dry to dry finish. Lingering floral hops and fruit in the aftertaste. Light alcohol presence.

M: Smooth, moderate carbonation with medium body and rich overall feel.

O: Very fine saison that is pleasantly fruit-forward. Nice balance although relatively sweet. All-around solid performer.

Prost!
