Tranparent bright yellow color, unfiltered body. Big, frothy head, persists quite a long time. Excellent lacing. Aroma of bread, little sugar, fruits. Medium body and carbonation. Intense, deep taste given its moderate alcohol rating, with bread, belgian yeasts, little of spices.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lively, slightly hazy golden beer with a thick, frothy head. Hefty, grassy-fruit aroma. Lots going on in the flavour. Very hoppy, heavy citrus, airy, floral, slight fruity sourness to it. Backtaste is nice but if it was much stronger itíd be borderline sickly.
Iím not sure I could drink a lot of it but itís very nice.

Bottle. Hazy medium yellow with a medium and lasting white head. Nose is yeast notes, citrus, herbal/spicy notes, fruit. Flavor is malt, spice, hops, lime peel, sweetness, some acidity. Hops in the dry and bitter finish. A very nicely balanced saison.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The pour yields a medium golden body that starts out mostly clear, but becomes increasingly cloudy with each pour. A foamy, huge, head holds strong, fading very slowly.
On the nose, grassy herbs come across slightly funky belgian yeast and pale, bready malts.
The actual taste differs a lot from the aromas. It evokes a much warmer feeling on the palate, than the aromas revealed, due to soft yeast, straw, peppery hints, tart lemon, pear and spices. Has an incredibly smooth mouthfeel, which is just outraging soft on the palate, with added complexity from the slightly biting, savory spices among peppery notes and lively, metallic carbonation. Pleasant, floral hops act as an enjoyable counterpart, with the addition of earthy malts, to the sweeter spices. The palate is simply perfect, substantial and round up front, finishing very dry and lightly fizzy. Outstanding well balances beer, which is close to perfection in taste with a particular complex body.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazed gold with a slightly off-white head sustained by vigorous carbonation. Tons of sediment visible but I left most of that in the bottle. Lemon zest, belgian yeast esters (banana et al), slight alcohol and slight woodsy funk on the nose make for a classic saison aroma. Flavor is delicious and complex, the funk increases and the malt adds a bready base. Lemon and banana continue. Soft and grainy mouthfeel is pleasant and refreshing. Easily obtainable and world-class saison.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Served on-tap at Shady McGradyís into a snifter.
A - Pours cloudy straw yellow with a nice pillow of half finger tall head leaving little wisps of lacing down the glass.
S - I donít think the smokey bar helped this one much. I could barely make it out but I got some light Belgian yeast, ripe fruit, earthy funk and a solid herbal backbone.
T - Plenty of Belgian yeast and earthy funk mix well with some nice light fruitiness and a tiny bit of light malt. Not as spicy as I thought it would be but it is still in there. Finish has lots of lingering bready yeast. Still one of my all time favorite beers.
M - Medium-light body and flavor with moderate carbonation. A pleasant mix of chewy and dry in the feel. Finish is very chewy with most of it lingering for some time after consumption.
D - Pretty high. One of the all time best, I could drink a few of these on a warm summer day no problem. It is light yet still complex and very tasty.
