Citrus spice nose but understated. Taste follows suit. Could be amazing but mine was a bit dull. Finish is really smooth.

Pours clear golden with a persistent 2-3 fingers of loose, white foam. Leaves gobs of lace. Smells like a classic Saison, sweet grain with clay, malts, plenty of yeast character, a bit of lemon and hay. Middle of the road nose. Tastes like itís got some band aids in it, a good light malt backbone with some seltzer notes, a good amount of early bitterness, some metallic hints and a little vinous overtures. Medium bodied with tight, sharp and excessive carb. A thick, wet finish. Not a bad beer, but nothing Iím inclined to appraise or seek out. A great intro to the middle of the road for an interested party.

A farmhouse with all local ingredients and a big Belgian taste. Delicious! I smell citrus & mellon. I taste fruit and coriander. Brilliance

Big fluffy head out of bottle pour. Smells sweet, bready. Taste is strong grapefruit with the grapefruit bitterness aftertaste. Fairly good, better as it warmed in the glass.

Very balanced, though not without a yeasty funk you won't forget. Crisp but unfiltered, reviving but not gentle. An amazing beer!

Mmm. Good beer. Had to give it a high appearance mark on the head alone. ..frothy and long-lasting. Nice light-golden color. Strong grapefruit aroma, tastes fruity and floral, doesnít taste like a 8% abv.

Way too hoppy to be a real saison, but somehow it just makes it better. The flagship of a great brewery.

Bottle. Golden yellow pour with tan head. Light wheat and yeast aromas. Light sweetness, spice and wheat tones. Wouldnít have realized the ABV without knowing it.

Bottle pour into awesome Belgian glass from Brussels. Beautiful color like a darker orange/golden. Impressive head that holds up as the beer is consumed. Lacing to make a fancy dinner setting jealous. Good balance of hops and sweet with some citrus notes. Maintains a consistent complex flavor throughout with the only minor complaint being a slight funk aftertaste. All in all a great beer and another stellar option from a really good brewery.

A really excellent beer and enjoyable enough to watch my Raiders beat-up on the Chargers. Aroma has a nice balance between hops and malts, lots of funky/spicy notes to keep my nose interested in smelling it. Flavor is malty, sweet, tart, citrusy with a surprisingly long finish. Really nice buy.
