Bottle. Cloudy blond pour with a small head. A yeasty aroma to it, with a little sweetness. Had a fruity taste to it. I liked this very much.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2008 Golden pour, HUGE head that got bigger as it sat there in my glass. Absolutely gigantic. Aroma is kinda funky, farm-like, a little sour. I can deal with this amount of sourness. So, Iíve got a glass of beer with a giant mountain of foam on top of it and Iím not sure what to do. Letís measure it! 1 and 3/4 inches of foam in the glass, 1 and 1/2 inches above the glass. And itís not receding. Damn. (TIME ELAPSED 5 MINUTES) Alright weíve got the head to dissipate. Now for a tasting. First impression is that itís dry. Not as dry as Orval, but damn dry. Itís kind of refreshing though. A little fruity, and as noted by others, earthy. A little bit herbal, slightly sour. Itís pretty soft on the tongue, despite high carbonation. Pretty good stuff, this saison.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm) Golden yellow colour, hazy with a firm white head. Powerful nose with a dry fruity character of citrus, hops and yeast. Huge, earthy taste with hops, citrus and spices (canít really put my finger on any specific spice, but there are lots of them here). Long, hoppy aftertaste. Nothing for the "gimmeanotherordinarylager-drinker", but a truly lovely beer in my opinion.

Bottle at The Kulminator, Antwerp. Cloudy gold with lasting ivory head. Lovely creamy saison with bit of toffee. Highly drinkable. Good hop balance. In fact hops are excellent. Some almost buttery hop aroma and good in mouth

(Bottle 750 ml) Golden color with a beautiful long lasting creamy meringue-like white head with plenty of lacing. Aroma of different spices (citrus!!!).
Flavour of spice, citrus, some faint bitterness with an absolutely great finish. Some lemon comes through. A very enjoyable fizz on the tongue. Absolutely great.

Bottle. Good hop aroma, fruity, hint of yeast. Almost clear golden colour. Big, creamy/rocky white head. The flavour is fruity, well balanced by the bitterness. Nice.
