Holy cheeseness! Blue cheese, grass and small hint of grapefruit in the aroma. Estery, peppery, dry. All things you would want in a big saison like this. Feels a bit like dupont on steroids. A bit over the top but very good nonetheless.

Pours a gorgeous honey color with champagne head. Magnificent. Very dry and champagne like. Aromas of Belgian candy and pink grapefruit. Flavors are bitter grapefruit and seamless hop bitterness with enough Belgian candy to keep it honest. This is really good.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dry with lots of spice, plus some grassy and citrus hops. Some alcohol burn as well. It’s a little too strong for it’s own good, I prefer mellower saisons.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is an interesting lemon, with an earthiness to it. Then it calms down into a funkiness. Appearance is spot-on: hazy pale yellow with a solid white head initially like meringue. The head faded but it still looks good. Taste is pretty good. Not really funk-forward in taste, more tart. Palate is ok, not really dry or bright as it could be. Overall, a good beer but not a super saison.
