4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2007 Goddamn this is good. Just the thought of a saison in a can makes me giddy. Could anyone conceive a better summer beer? I poured it into a Duvel tulip because as much as I like the idea, I’d rather not drink it straight from the can...
Aroma is mostly bubblegum and spice, which doesn’t sound that appetizing, but it brought a smile to my face as soon as I opened the can and poured the coppery liquid into my glass. (WTF, a can?!?)
Flavors of wheat, spice, and light bready malt mingle happily on the tongue. The finish leaves a trace of candi sugar sweetness and clove/coriander spice mixed with a bit of noble hop spiciness in the far corners of my mouth.
Hey Omar! Please, please send this beer to Oregon. Ever since the local distributor dropped Oskar Blues I’ve been hurting for good canned beer to take camping. Please?!?!?!
Rerate 45 minutes later: I forgot about my glass while surfing the intraweb. Now that it’s fully up to room temp it has a much more peppery, almost smoky flavor to it.. Very nice lingering pepper/hop bite that seems to rise out of nowhere and stick to the corners my mind...
I repeat. PLEASE bring this to Portland!

Des malt mielleux et croustillants servent de base pour l’émanicpation d’une levure belge assumée. L’amertume est vaporeuse et les sucres libres de faire ce qu’ils veulent.
