Bottle, 375ml corked. A dense, finger-thick off-white head sits on top of a lightly hazy dark golden body. The aroma is rather banana-ish and toffee-ish, with a faint spiced touch and some orange. Spiced hints too, not much Saison yeast impact. The alcohol is detectable in both nose and mouth. The flavor is quite sweet, with banana, toffee, a spiced hint and orange. Full body, soft and smooth, with a little alcohol warmth. Some bitterness in the else sweet finish with banana, some toffee and spices. Not much of a saison this one, but quite decent anyway. 130819
