This beer is outstanding. It underlines all of the yeast, cloudiness, and funk that gives the saison style its charm. It pours a cloudy, flaky golden color with a thick, white head that really wants to stay around until the last sip. It has that full, meringue-like quality that many fine Belgian ales possess.
There's a powerful, yeasty aroma to the beer. Hints of some sort of near-citrus, perhaps lemongrass, and an underlying sweetness also tempt those nostrils lucky enough to grab a whiff of this wonderful brew.
The flavor is full and funky, with notes of coriander and maybe some hints of licorice or anise. Maybe. There's also a tart, bitter flavor dancing about in there that must be the aforementioned lime. Perhaps lime zest? And like all good saisons, it speaks of earth and substance. It's a really remarkable beer, and I wish I could drink this one every day. However, like most saisons that I've tried, I suspect it would go much better with food than on its own, which just makes me want to get more of it and drink it with every meal.
