Magnum. 06 2016

A cloudy golden peach color, amazingly active, rushing carbonation that creates a wonderful, creamy white towering beast of foam. Sloooow dissipation leaves sticky, lacy bits all around the chalice. A heavy all-white creamy top is thick even waaay after decanting.

The aroma is an abundance of sweet and sour fruity notes, tropical, citrus, clove, honey, white pepper and a dense herbal mixture with earthy undertones. I can smell its rather wild and pungent aroma from several feet away !

Feeling first: mouthfeel is unreal, lush, sharp, dry and amazingly refreshing. The dry hop adds even more of a dry bite and Zing. Just awesome.

The flavor, honestly boggles my mind. The balance of such a wild array, the yeast flavors are very complex, earthy, fruity, citric, sour notes....just heavy with yeastie goodness. Feels wild but with amazing balance and refinement.
A light, crispy malt adds some body and a light honey sweetness in a very subtle way. Currents of light and darkfruits continue to ride with a gritty, earthy hop flavor that blends so well with the wicked yeast flavors. The hop/yeast forward combo of this authentic Belgian style is just such a pleasure to enjoy. Refreshing/warming and super easy to pair with a plate of fruit and cheese.

I've had several American "Belgian Style" versions of the classic Saison or Farmhouse ale, and after a few pours of this, solidifies my opion...it's got to be from Belgium.
The bar is set by this classic. And the bar is set very, very high.
