Bottle: Poured a deep cloudy amber color ale with a nice tan foamy head with excellent retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of light rustic malt with sweet undertones also noticeable. Taste is also dominated by rustic malt notes with light residual sugars notes and a mildly spicy yeast notes with bready undertones. Body is full with limited carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Wonderfully executed with great drinkability and just enough complexity.

Deep golden color, not quite amber. Cloudy since it's unfiltered. A little bit of yeast sediment on the bottom. A nice, hoppy flavor, similar to an IPA. Very good!

On tap in Antwerp. Pours deep golden colored with a creamy white one finger head. Aroma of pears, buttery notes, some yeast and grass. Flavor is extremely buttery tasting alongside sweet honey and some yeast funk. On the sweet side. Medium bodied with low carbonation . Wasn’t a huge fan of this one.

Flavoursome but easy drinking Saison that hits the spot.

aroma: citrus/rich malt predominate

taste: peach, apricot. clove, rich malt, banana, white wine, orange and slight grapefruit.

Fruity and distinctly Belgian with a pleasant dryness. Well balanced and a good beer to have with friends.

A- muddy gold with one inch of coarse light tan head. Decent head retention, poor lacing. Random splotches of foam stick at random to the sides of the glass. There is a lot of carbonation along the sides of the glass.

S- spicy hops, clove, yeast. pretty light. Some lemon peel as well.

T- clove, honey, grain, . some light spicy grassy hops in the finish. I'm really not Getting that barnyard funk that a saison should have.

M- light, prickly carbonation, refreshing.

O- eh. It doesn't scream saison to me.
