Pours a beautiful hazy golden with lively and rising white head. Smooth yeasty aroma with a touch of farmhouse hay, fresh and soft lemon aspect. The flavor is sharp, but pleasnt. Musty, a bit tart, almost like a sharp cheese. Light citrus aspect. Lightly acidic, orangey with a hint of pepperyness and a light yeast touch. A well made and classic Saison.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I think it’s a 2006 vintage 375 ml bottle. Popped the bottle and it wanted out. Had to goto the sink to pour this. The beer has a nice murky caramel colored body with a sexy meringue head. Awesome lacing. The aroma is heavy in cloves, Belgian/French yeasts, bananas, funk and black pepper. The flavor is lightly tart with some spicy yeasts, pepper, allspice, bananas, toasty grains. At times, too spicy. I wanted a nice pleasant brew and it was all up in my face. Nice slick mouthfeel and refreshing dryness.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
What a great aroma which surrounds the opening of my snifter. Banana, cheese, barnyard funkiness. Large foamy head which is uneven. Flavor is sour, but sweet and fruity as well and is balanced nicely. Yeasty with a dry finish. For the saison style, this is top notch.

Drank in a tulip. Murky yellow poor, amazingly HUGE white longlasting head. Very herbal, pepper, citrus, corriander, a little bit of ginger, pine resin. Dry mouthfeel, a little bitterness. What you smell is preaty much what you taste. Very interesting beer. Not spectacular, but definitely worthy.

375 mL bottle. Poured a golden straw color with a very thick dense white head. Sweet floral aroma, I smelled a hint of an unknown spice, reminiscent of a licorice/anise smell. Taste starts off bitter and tangy and finishes dry. Very nice.
