4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from 2006. Pours beautifully, Orangey/ambe with big dense white head. Aroma is a bit musty but also with some sweet notes as well. Alcohol present in the flavor but this highlights the light spiced flavor. Carbonation is low so this coats the tongue comfortably. A bit of earthiness in this as expected. I think this is right on for a holiday saison. Really nice. Wish I had more.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a hazy to cloudy light golden with a thick, tall rocky off-white head that hangs out a while and leaves a big soapy wall of lace on the glass. Nose is mesmerizing and involves sweet honey nectar, pungent zesty peppery tart spice, sourdough, grassy and spicy noble hops, peach, apricot, and pear. Fairly sweet, fairly tart, and fairly bitter: incredibly well-balanced. Medium to light bodied, actively carbed, oily, sprite on the tongue, with a long, glorious, and bright finish. One of the most elegant and beautiful beers I’ve ever had the pleasure of drinking. Fantastic.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours hazy orange golden with big thick white head, some sediment from the yeast. Aroma is canned pears! Sweet breadth wheat, clove, subtle bubblegum and fruity esters and Belgian yeast. Taste is dangerously light and crisp carbonation with a nice creamy full body. Wheat and some lemon. Only a slight hint of booze in finish along with some spices. One of my favorites!
