Slightly hazy light golden color, earthy fruity funky aroma and flavor. Deceptively easy to drink farmhouse ale.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a corked bottle served in a Duvel tulip. Beer pours a very cloudy straw colored yellow with about a fist of white, foamy head that shrinks to a half inch or so. Aromas are typical Belgian. Banana, clove, and bubblegum. I also pick up some faint baking spices as well as white pepper and lemon. Very nice. On to tasting. On first sip I get bread, lemon, and a bit of that Belgian barnyard funk. There are definitely bananas in there as well. The carbonation level is a bit on the higher side, it makes my mouth tingle. Overall this is a good beer, however not my favorite saison. I will buy again though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pours a light straw color. Aroma is bready, yeasty, perfume... something like a hefeweizen. Taste is crisp, yeasty esters, bright with some lemon rind bitterness on the end. Not particularly fond of this one.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I poured this from a 12 oz. bottle at home into a tulip glass. The beer was initially on the cold side. This seemed to suppress the aromatic properties. As it warmed, the phenolic properties of the beer came to the fore. It poured a fairly clear amber/orange with a nice frothy head. The bitterness is toward the light end of the spectrum with medium sweetness. The carbonation is not as lively as one finds in some other Saisons, but it has the dry finish one expects of a good Saison. Overall, this is a very solid Saison that I am growing fonder of over time.
