That's a great idea. Saisons are really widely varying when it comes down to it, but this beer is fantastic. It would be my favorite saison if it were for the Dupont Avec Les Bon Vouex. But that is a much more intense saison. A lot bigger.

You will enjoy this beer!

The review...

Appearance:
Cloudy and golden with a slight orange hue. Big, fluffy, persistent white head and bigtime lace.

Aroma:
Citrus and coriander with a light wheat/cereal note. Spicy hops in the background.

Flavor:
Sweet orange up front; very light malt flavor before a pepper/spicy finish. A bit sweeter than I expected, but very pleasant.

Mouthfeel:
VERY effervescent - accentuates the spiciness. Coats the tongue nicely without a "thick" feel. Refreshing, as advertised.

Overall:
Again, not as dry as I expected, but quite balanced. Really reminds me of Hoegaarden, but it's not so heavy on the palate. An excellent beer!

Hoegaarden, huh? You and I have different palates.
