4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2013- Pours orange with a lot of minute flocculation and a small head. Aroma is funky- big apricot and lemon notes, burlap, dirt, brie, manure, and black pepper. Flavor is tart lemon, hay, wood, bready yeast, pepper, distant basil, and a tacky dry bit that ends grassy. A very elegant and spot-on version of the style. Very good, and very accessible.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 12ozer, bottled on 18JUN13. Nose is alarmingly fruity, heavy jammy marmalade, principally orange, with fruity yeast and lovely white pepper, white grape, muscat, floral, some honey and vanilla, classic saison. Pours golden with a soapy white head. Crisp, honeyed taste, lightly sweet with juicy citrus and jam, leaning a bit exotic though not quite, and a pleasant bit of mild rind with soft wood and luscious fruit right up the middle. Tannic bite is rounded and helps with volume, wheat is done juuust right and blends with the tartness. The wilder and potentially chaotic elements are downplayed, but what is emphasized is worthy -- very full and complex. The spicy and occasional hoppy flourishes are harmonious contributors. Medium body is oily, slightly warming. Amazing that the US now has ready access to something like this.

765 ml bought at an IGA in Saint-Janvier (Mirabel, Quebec) on January 29, 2014. Blonde misty cream, small head. Aroma of sweet spice and pineapple, a bit hoppy. Wheat taste with citrus and pineapple slightly spicy, easy to drink. This beer gives me too the taste of summer!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tart and complex with a slight orange zest note, some coriander and cardamom spice, and pretty straight forward pale malt. Has a dry, boozy mouthfeel with many tannins.

Smells like a hairy dirty jock strap. Tastes like a sweet nectar for the gods. This was a very good beer.

Bottle, with a story behind it. About 4 years ago my kids kindergarten group gave their teacher a box of beer from each country they came from. I sourced the beer, lots of crap in it, this one represented my kids best mate. Shared it with Tom tonight. Stood the test of time well. Light lemon orange with a thin head. Dry wheat aroma, Spicy sour wheat, vanilla on a dry Belgian citrus finish.
