Damn fine beer...I think this is one of the top 5 beers I have had easily...such a great culmination of the 4 ingredients plus a few more for good measure. First, the color is amber gold, clean nice legs, white med head, that falls after a while but beautiful...the aroma is amazing..dried apricots, spices, malty sweets, farmhouse barn. Taste...brown sugar, raw rustic fruit, apricot, wild yeasts and light sweet malty raisin-fig-date fruitiness. Outdoor natural flavors...well crafted and balanced. Not too sweet, not too bitter, balance at its best, with complex and desirable character! Love this beer, I could drink it all week! ContemplateBeer (2089) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 29, 2011
On tap at Sergio’s World Beers. Aroma of tart cherry, grapefruit, slight pepper and medium resiny hops. Appearance is cloudy gold with 1/4 inch white head. Flavor was mostly fruity up front, with a resin hop, musty finish. As the beer warmed, I noticed a bit of ginger and some dried fruit qualities. Palate is bubbly and builds up to an effervescent finish. Great Saison. tderoeck (9480) - Gent, BELGIUM - JAN 26, 2011

23/01/2011 - 75cl bottle @ 10 uur biercultuur, Gentse Biervereniging (2011-35)
Cloudy bright yellow beer, white head, unstable, little adhesive. Aroma: pineapple, passion fruits, citrus notes. MF: ok carbon, light to medium body. Taste: very dry bitter, grapefruit, again exotic fruits. Aftertaste: bit dry but not too much, fruity, long lasting bitterness.
Draft. Poured a clear yellow color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate herbs and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. I would recommend this to a friend.

Bottle. Nice saison. Aroma is lemony and grassy with a distinct earthy, barnyard yeast note. Peppercorns and fresh barley. A bit of mineral flavor in the finish. Taste starts with some light caramel malt moves into a lemony note and finishes dry with funk. Light golden amber with a nice white head that manages to be bountiful without going entirely nuts like some saisons. Mouthfeel is relatively smooth and dry. Lemon and earth sticks in the finish. Very nice.

From a bottle poured a straw color with a small amount of head. Nice light spicy malty flavor with a quick finish. Diogène (1208) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 17, 2011
Bottle. Hazy straw with a thick foamy head with good retention. Aroma is herbal and floral with fruits, pale malt, citrus, yeast, minimal peppery notes, and a hint of sugar. Flavor is moderately acidic with floral and herbal notes, citrus, pale crispy malt, moderate bitterness, yeast, a hint of alcohol and a dry bitter finish. Medium body. Flavorful and very drinkable. A very well done saison. BelgBeerGeek (1308) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JAN 15, 2011
head: creamy white, fairly thin BelgiskOlklub (1079) - Viby J, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2011
smell: grassy , flowery hops, lychee , yeast, alcoholic malty, bitter, sweet lemony
taste: start is peachy , malty, a little bit of a irony background , something that reminds me of white lemonade like sprite, somewhat citric , yeast , a bit of a wheaty appeal , texture is semi-dry , end/aftertaste is grainy and grassy , great saison !
Hazy light yellow body and a small white lasting rocky head. Aroma of hay, straw, flowers, raw vegetables, citrus and yeast. Light sweetness and very bitter. Long bitter finish and oily texture. A good quality beer. BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 10, 2011
Bottle thanks to someone. Pours with a clear and pale yellow body with a white head. Aroma was dank! Weed, sage, fruity, grass, and pepper. Taste of seltzer water, tropical fruit, dank and grassy. A bit watery. Very...uhh, herbal. Lively and dry mouthfeel. A good hoppy saison.
