Taste is moderately sweet, coriander, perfume, orange peel, some herbal/grassy, peach. Dry finish. Medium body, light some acidity. But for the sweetness, I would think this excellent.

Bottle. [thanks to my good friend, Vicky, for bringing this from the States]
Pours a clear golden yellow with a giant white head. It is creamy on top, and further down, it is very bubbly. There is an amazing amount of bubbles surging upwards. Nice spicy flavour. Ginger, oranges, coriander, wheat, yeast, lemons, melons and barnyard. Lively mouthfeel, but still rather creamy. Flavour is lightly vinious, more than other Saisons, Ive tried. Flavours include a nice fruity hoppiness, lots of ginger, lemons. Very dry finish with a light tartness. I had to rate this before it became available in Denmark (which it is tomorrow :o) ). Really a good Saison, but the Belgians are funkier and more complex.
