had it at moeder lambic in brussels in june... saison season... or at least the end of it. great pour of a proper straw color orange murky with a nice lacy head. nose not as funky as some but still backed with a nice saaz hop core and herbal quality. palate is dry yet fruity. nice citrus mild and delightful straw must quality. thyme and licorice. orange and grassy. a great example and very well rounded. could taste the freshness in the bottle. would like to see what its like in 6 months.

I consumed this bottle at Bruge Beertjie on 4/23/10 upon the recommendation of Daisy (the owner) when I asked for a flavorful saison.

Appearance: Pours a radiant tangerine with the slightest honey folds, a 1 finger white crown, moderate retention, and great lace.

Smell: Apricots, tangerines, loads of brett (but not much lemon surprisingly).

Taste: Same as nose but more brett dominant. Really "soft" brett bomb.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, light bodied, refreshing.

Drinkability: Outstanding.

My favorite De Ranke brew to date....Home Run!
