An all time classic - and for good reason. This Saison has it all - Huge, billowing sun-bleached ivory white cap that nods it's head in acknowledgment of the beautiful golden body of this masterpiece. Barnyard funk heavy in the nose with a good twist of lemony zestyness that carries over to the taste and performs a lusty tango with the hoppy bitterness while the musty funk slowly plays it's sweet serenade in the background. Lively yet delicate carbonation, with that must-have dryness in the finish.
Sweet Baby Jeebus... make mine a double.
Conglomerate of murky gel-like haze of light golden yellow with a tall suspended dense white head of firmly settling froth, slowly dwindles down to a thick puffy haze that remains present, lacing in inkblot sheets.
Smell is subdued and mellow with light fruity citrus peels and quite floral in its sweetness with an overall dry wood character adding a nice earthyness with dried grassy and musty yeast notes.
Taste is a nice meld of complexing little bits of sharp wheat tones that playfully dart around the palate leaving trails of spices, grasses, dulled citrus peels, musty yeast, wood and earthy tones that leaves a real interesting dryness thats milding smooth and long with its own complexities lending nice frothy wheat malts and some mild hop bittering tones. Nice finish, very calm, smooth, lengthy, and subtle with drying tones. Nice airy carbonation upfront that builds quickly to a nice little grab and fullness midway, and finishes dry remaining smooth and kinda tingly/spritzy the whole way through. The drinkability is nice.
