Pours amber with a large lasting head. Nose shows light bready malt, lemon and grapefruit, along with spicy Belgian yeast and banana. More spicy notes as flavours along with some serious mineral content further drying out the finish. Other than that thereís some bready malt and little else. Carbonation seems a bit full-on. Seems pretty spot-on for a saison but its just not exciting me.

330ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Super carbonated, when I popped the top a big gush of foam spewed from the bottle. A deep thick looking layer of foam covers a hazy beer that is the colour of an apricot skin. Melon, peaches and nectarines dominate the aroma with a sweet rich fruitiness. Full flavoured and silk like in the mouth with a creamy aftertaste.

Bottle. Cloudy pale amber, some chunks, large white head. Aroma of hay, nectarines, lemon pudding, spices - coriander seed, pepper and mature ginger (I suppose thatís the myrrh). That itís Szechuan pepper becomes obvious in the taste. Fairly light-bodied, high carbonation. Light sweetness with grain and stone fruit, some lemony tartness. Bitterness is firm. Then a procession of spices that starts with white pepper and coriander and thenís a flash of prickly ash. Fairly dry finish. Good. If the spices are a bit overdone itís only by a tiny bit.

Birra assolutamente spettacolare. Sapore unico nel suo genere. Il pepe si sente e la rende affascinante. Di facile beva e di corpo medio-leggero.

33 cl bottle @ home. Pours a very nice golden colour, a hint of cloudiness, clean white foam. Aroma is mostly lemony, peppery, very elegant. Taste is bittersweet, peppery again, with a nice balsamic note. Not as dry as a Saison Dupont, but the light body, medium carbnation and very well-hidden alcohol presence together help boost drinkabilty. Finishes long and balsamic, quite a nice one.

A me Ť piaciuta tantissimo! Ve la lascio scoprire, vi dico solo che il pepe dello shichuan si sente e rende la birra strepitose, insieme a tutto il resto ovviamente!

Ma che buona questa Saison!!! Dorato arancio opalescente, bel cappello bianco fine e persistente. Naso affascinante, spezie(pepe, coriandolo...), scorza díarancia, lieviti, caramello... Bocca snella, beverina, finale dolce/amaro lungo, pulito e persistente.
