Foret pours hazy gold with a light orange tint under a 3” thick mousey head that looks like freshly fallen snow and very slowly collapses leaving art nouveau designs on the glass. It has a big saison nose with light fruit, spice, earthiness, bread and a light funk. Bready malt leads the palate seasoned with light fruit, malty sweetness, citrus, and a slight funk that becomes tart on the finish. The beer has an effervescent medium body – the texture makes the beer with slightly different flavors emphasized in the body than in the rich moussey foam.

Ultimately, a sweeter version of Saison Dupont, Like they took a whole ton of cane sugar and mixed it into the recipe. Not really a fan.

My rating: 3.5

I was expecting more from this brew. Its a fine example of the beer but nothing uber special.

I had this on-tap in a straight sided DuPont glass at the Stumbling Monk in Seattle.

Appearance: light golden hue with a light haze and 2 fingers of frothy white foam head. Quite attractive.

Smell: moderately funky with a nice grassy aroma. Enticing.

Taste: a little buttery with more of that moderate funk with a little sweetness and nicely grassy hops. Very smooth and balanced; I quite like it.

Mouthfeel: medium rich body with a great smoothness and great creaminess. Bam!

Overall: this is a balanced and very drinkable saison. Delicious.
