Original review date 12/9/2008... Bottled 11/2008 - first batch! Into Duvel tulip... Pristine honey colored body (OK, a smidge of haze) with sparse carbonation rising to huge, tight 2-finger head that drops to 1.5 with good lacing. A little soapy, floral hop presence. Slight ginger and nutmeg spice tones. Banana ester is prevalent also. Interesting. Good old-world Saison yeast electricity with a lot of banana here as well. Grain has slight funk to it (not brett but faint sour hints). A little soap and flora on the hops. Solid. Carbonation gives this a little bite along with mellow citurs nature. Finish is rather tight but decent. A little heavy on the banana ester/sweetness but the mix with floral hops keeps that in check. I like this - good mix for a Saison/Belgian IPA. Very clean.

veronneaupy (179) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
Au nez, on sent l'arôme typique d'une levure de saison et c'est tout. En bouche, elle est aussi claire que son allure. La levure est omniprésente et entraîne une finale brève et sèche. Sans avoir de goûts off, elle manque nettement de personnalité... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
