Bottle thanks to Toby, you are the man! Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. A sweet sugary fruity nose. The flavor is spicy as you’d expect from a Saison, some dry yeast, a lively body, but the sweetness is too much, lacks a bit of balance and easy drinking that I expect from a Saison. Good though.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2012 Draft at brouwers with Linh and Nhi. Pours a clear amber with light white lacing. Aroma is sweet Malta and sugar. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of booze, sweet malts and perfume. Ah! BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 11, 2011
On tap at Blue Palms. Pours with a hazed golden body and a big and lasting white head. Very nice lace. Aromas are strong with lemon, orange, pepper, yeast, alcohol and banana. Flavors are once again big, with lemon peel, some acidity, boozy, and somehow still somewhat dry (somehow!). Very floral. Light bubbles, with some acidity. A touch on the sticky side.

750ml Bottle 62 of 1200 thanks to my buddy Tevis for picking this up in Montana for me. Pours out hazy straw topped with a fluffy white head. Aroma was nice crisp granny smith apples, spice, belg yeast, and some clove. Taste was much the same as the aroma with the green apple leading the way. A very good balance of fruit and Saison spice.

Appearance: Hazy yellow with a small white head and some lacing
Aroma: Coriander, sweet malts and wheat
Taste: Sweet malts and spices
Not bad, but very sweet.
Clear, vigorous carbonation. Loose white head. Smells sweetish, lightly sugary and spicy. Tastes sweet, way too heavy, and some boozy, spicy, herbal notes. To quote Photokut, tastes like you’re trying to drink incense.
