Pours a deep and hazy golden body with a very thin head and almost no carboration. Nice funky aroma. Very nice and well balanced taste with all sort of summer tones.

Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a hazy orange gold with a huge soapy white head. Strong citrus aromas with lemon zest, iyokan and white grapefruit pith showing along with some pepper and that classic saison yeast nose. There is also a nice bit of tartness on the nose too. Taste is similar with lots of citrus and tart notes coming though. Great spritzy carbonation and a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Finish has some lemon zest and white pepper. A world class saison. C’est manifique!

Bottle. Pours a clear pale golden color with an ample white head. Smells doughy, slight must. Taste is similar, with a lightly creamy texture. Carbonation is fizzy, though in no way aggressively so; Medium bodied. Wonderful.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2015 2015/08/23 - Pours a cloudy, orange-honey colour with a thin, fizzy white head that quickly dissipates. No lacing. Aroma is peppery yeast, bread, bubblegum, hay, honey, citrus and apricot. Taste is peppery yeast, white wine notes, apricot, hay, bread orange and mildly tart citrus. Mouthfeel is medium to full with slightly low carbonation and a mildly tart finish that starts juicy and ends drying. The flavor profile (especially the fruity notes) of this saison is really unique and delicious. I really enjoyed this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(750ml) In a La Chouffe tulip . Ok , well fuck me I either got a mundane bottle of this apparent variable saison, or I got a slight ’miss’ .. I have wanted to try this beer for a considerable time but its obscurity can be felt even in Belgium . I was disappointed , it lacked any real complexity or customary rural pungent notes i like in farmhouse beers . Light citrus nose , bugglegum , spice , a bit of skunk . Poured out glowing orange that morphed into dirty orange with a good creamy foam.... Quit tart , like bitter cherry , mild dirty orange , earthy mushroom dankness , lightly citric spice accents .suggested bready sweet notes in the backdrop. I was hoping for funk and rustic character and found only a very subtle dirty quality . Its a pleasant enough beer but a fucking let down in context .
