Intro: A 750ml bottle with a best before end 2019 date. Poured into a d’Achouffe tulip glass.
Appearance: A lightly hazy amber-orange colour with a two finger light tan-orangey coloured head that had good retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: Sweet Belgian yeast, breadiness, lots of fruit, plum, orange, apple with hints of clove and banana, lightly peppery, hay, grass and some spices.
Taste: Musty, apple juice, grass, orange, orange peel bitterness, some kind of floral herbal spice mix that’s not easy to describe and some pear and pepper lingering on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation.
Overall: This was interesting but perhaps that floral herbal spice mix threw me off a bit. I also felt the carbonation was too low. In the end I think I prefer their regular Saison a lot more.
