right up there with any saison out there. nice citrus quality along with the usual spiciness and breadiness seemed over-carbonated in the bottle, lots of foam inside...yet when poured was carbonated perfectly. like another rater said...might not be worth paying more for than dupont for being right around the same quality

Poured from draft to snifter. Light amber in color, cloudy with specks of sediment. White foam, one finger, thin lacing that clings high. Light citrus on the nose, and super citrus on the tongue. Full bodied and a joy.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This came from a caged and corked 750ml bottle.
Poured into a tulip glass, this had a massive head and left stickly lace down the glass. Sunflower yellow color.
Aromas of Belgian yeast, spices, perhaps some coriander and black pepper? Slightly sweet smelling as well.
Very nice flavor. Nicely balanced between sweet malts and hops and yeastiness.
Mouthfeel was just right. Full bodies but left a clean palate.
Overall, a very nice brew. One of the best saison’s I’ve had. Recommended.
