Semi cloudy blonde with a good white head. Standard yeasty Belgian blonde with some sweet sweet malt and a nice hoppy bitterness. Wheaty and grassy. Nice malt but it’s just too sweet.
Thanks to Jason for this one. Clear gold, fizzy head that quickly disappears. Vinous sweet aroma. Flavor is sugary, grainy, and slightly tart at the front. An attractive and enjoyable saison.

750mL bottle, courtesy of jasonp. Thanks, Jason! Pours a slightly hazy golden color; white head with medium-bubbled lacing. Honey and overripe yellow fruit in the aroma; bananas and yeast and fruit. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: sticky yellow fruits, honey, and a complex yeast character; seems a bit old and vaguely musty at this point, but a solid saison core underneath, if a bit sticky. Medium finish, showing white pepper, dough, and plenty of bananas and overripe fruit. ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JAN 26, 2008
Provided by jasonp. Hazy, very pale body with a large white head. Lightly sweet, fruity nose with lots of fresh cut flowers, herbs and pepper. Flavor is very lightly sweet with pepper, honey, pear, lemon and floral/herbal hops. Medium body is round, with moderate-spritzy carbonation. BartC (727) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2008

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2009 [949-20071211] 750mL. Tangy grainy grassy yeast aroma. Hazy, light orange brown body with a big long-lasting foamy white head and lots of bubbles. Boozy yeast grains flavour with a bit of tangy straw. Fizzy medium body. Interesting, hides the alcohol well. Ɨ/4/7/3/14) 3.5
[2472B-20090827] 1pt9.4floz bottle. Sour qualities and an odd seawater yeast in the aroma. Hazy, light brown orange body with a medium-lasting creamy white head. Fruity strong yeast flavour has a bit of generic straw yeast. Medium body has rough sour edges. Not too much going on but is fairly pleasant. Ɨ/3/7/4/14) 3.5
