Very old world, dry and bitter flavor. Floral and old-world tasting, but still very light and simple. Quite good. Very deep but not heavy at all.

Can (canned August 2013). Pours a hazy pale yellow with a huge head that settles down fairly quickly. Aromas of bread dough, peppery saison yeast, lemon. Taste is similar: lemon, light peppery yeast. Bright. Well balanced. Light bodied and soft with a dry finish. Very nice.

Pours pale yellow into a snifter. White head quickly recedes to skim surface. Yeast, bread and citrus aromas. Medium to sharp with sweet citrus and pepper front to back.

Clear, light golden colored liquid is quite bubbly, producing a large white head that slowly recedes to cover.
Dry, citric and stone fruit-like hoppiness in the nose also allows some room for light pils malt suggestions of honey and light dough. Yeasty (basement, cobwebs, plaster, that sort of thing) notes abound with warming but give depth and Belgian character to the crisp, dry finish. Perhaps a touch of light resin, but it certainly wasn’t problematic for me and the cleanliness was very surprising. No alcohol or flaws.
Bitter, very well-hopped citra-like hoppiness gives off tart, bitter lemons, limes and grapefruit skins. It is balanced by lightly sweet, but well-attenuated pils malts. Crackery, nearly-astringent flavors (rice?) mix with the bitter, borderline resinous hop assault on the finish to keep the beer extremely crisp and snappy. Despite all of the talk of big hops, resin and bitterness, it goes down very easily. Carbonation is high, texture is lightly watery and very drinkable. Quite delicious and if not as accomplished as Premium, maybe a bit more of a mindless crusher, which is great in its own right.

Cloudy straw with nice robust foamy white head. Extremely clean and integrated taste and mouthfeel. White bread slightly grainy flavors. Lively mouthfeel.

Can. Pours slightly hazy golden with quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is full of spice and some sweetness (from the corn?). Taste brings black pepper, a light hoppiness, some malt support and even a light tang. Wow, a lot going on in here. Average palate with some spritzy carbonation. Finish is grainy and lightly bitter. As someone who loves Premium I thought this would come up way short. It doesn’t quite match up to Premium, but this is still very good. So glad I can grab this by the six-pack.
