Bottle: Hazy with very thick head and lace.
The aromas are fresh and spicy. Lots of clove. Palate is dry but there's lovely rich flavor while maintaining elegance.
This is a lovely beer. Modern but not over the top, so maintains it's heritage.

750 ml bottle purchased at Julio's Liquors. Nose is earthy notes, pepper and hay. Flavor is straw, honey, and soil. Grassy... Chewy yeast. Medium-bodied, with effervescent mouthfeel leading into a bone dry texture. Pretty good, completely different from the previous years that I remember. Overall, rather grassy.

375ml bottle. Pours slightly hazy golden yellow colour. Medium white head. Funk, barnyard, fruity aspects, malty notes in the aroma. Slight notes of grape or orange peel too. Slightly earthy, bit fruity beginning. Maltiness in the middle. Quite dry, rather earthy finish. Grassy notes and some candy sugar in the aftertaste. Light bodied, very well balanced, crisp classical saison. The fruit character is not so present, but still a nice one. JefVerstraete (3819) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - DEC 3, 2017

Znakomite piwo, ładna barwa i piana, bardzo ładny aromat, w smaku dość kwaśne i gorzkie, wytrawne, ale nie zalegające i absolutnie nie ciężkie, a nawet dość orzeźwiające. Jak na saison dość goryczkowe, ale bardzo ciekawe, świetne piwo.
