4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, 2012 printed on the cork. Pours hazy golden orange color with a nice 3 finger fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to thick cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings to the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big orange zest, lemon zest, pepper, coriander, earth, clove, pear, wheat, grass, hay, bread, and yeast spiciness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity and balance. Taste of big lemon, orange zest, pepper, clove, pear, wheat, bread, grass, hay, coriander, earth, herbal, floral, and big yeast spiciness. Light wheat tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange zest, wheat, pepper, clove, coriander, bread, earth, grass, and yeast spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic flavor complexity and balance; very crisp and fairly dry finish; no cloying flavors at all. Great malt flavor to spiciness balance as well. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a creamy, chalky, and fairly prickly and crisp mouthfeel that is excellent. Alcohol is very well hidden with almost zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an absolutely world class saision. Insane balance and complexity of flavors; extremely crisp and smooth to sip on. I am going to have to revisit the normal Saision Dupont soon to compare; this is apparently the organically brewed version of that. WOW.

Bière blonde de saison triple avec une belle robe de paille et un col mince évanescent. Au nez: fortes senteurs de céréales maltées qui sortent du moult, d’esters alcooliques, d’un fort biscuité, une amertume fine mais piquante. En bouche, la gorgée est mielleuse à cause de l’alcool élevé mais sans être sirupeuse et surtout grâce à cette levure épicée un rien poussiéreuse qui rend le palais gras et qui est accompagnée d’une amertume tenace sans être agressive ni discrète. Finale à l’amertume très fine, sèche.
Dégustation au maltage complexe et savant . Une bière sans pareille à laquelle on revient toujours !

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A: Pours a light golden ale with a two finger head: fine and whispy in character. Recedes slowly to medium sheet of the same. Lacing is unbroken - seriously thick and persistent. Excellent clarity.
S: Grain, rice, farmhouse, earthy hops, corn, peppercorn, chamomile, jasmine. Excellent.
T: Corn dominant, but nonetheless fantastic. I am happy to put more of this in me. Grains, yeast, farmy flavors. Would pair with sharp cheddar.
M: Light body, light to medium carbonation. Coats the mouth in a light, airy manner.
D: This beer is refreshing, satisfying, and provides a nice feeling that beer can be both complex and simple. I feel like I should do out and buy the rest of this where I found it. So good.
