4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a hazy dark golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, earthy yeast, coriander, vanilla, honey, and citrus fruits. Taste of citrus fruits, honey, toffee malts, skunky hops, earthy yeast, light pepper, and a spicy alcohol finish. A nice saison, but if this is the second coming of the Avec Les Bons Voeux, it needs to dry out some to be that fantastic.

called Vautour deluxe at GABF 08, let me know if this is a different beer. In any event, Light golden color, fairly clear really with a white head. Nose was earthy and grassy, and actually, pretty spicy too, coriander comes to mind. Sour malty yeasty flavors. Grassy/straw-like and yeasty with alcohol induces thickness that starts to get syrupy after a while.
