This is a wonderful Belgian which I just discovered when--for the first time--I stopped in at Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA--in the San Diego boondocks.
It is similar in some ways to Duvel, but is a tad sweeter with a really nice green apple flavor. Very refreshing with some hop bitterness at first, it goes down smooth. SUPERB...
I’m mystified that it doesn’t get uniformly spectacular ratings! SanfordBrewer (1610) - Sanford, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2012

Aroma: pale malt, bright but mild sourness, toffee sweetness, pears, musty basement.
Taste: sweet pale malt, bright tart peary yeast esters, stoney minerality, spicey yeast notes and phenols, slightly oxidized bittering hops.
A light aroma, nice bubbly yellow color. This was tasty. A bit of funk to the spice, very tingly on the tip of the tongue. Great finish, pretty tasty saison like.
