750ML format, wine goblet.

A: Deep bright-ish orange, gave it my usual "high pour" while billowy head that fade quickly but leaves nice lacing.

S: TANGERINE!! And flowers, which ones I can't say but very sweet and floral. I like the floral aroma but can't image this being a positive when it comes to the taste.

T/M: Very sweet upfront, some orange like flavors, more so clementine than tangerine on the tongue (as opposed to the aroma) and then the saison yeast finally rears it's head at the very end in the form of a dry finish. Otherwise far far too syrupy for my liking and for the style.

O: Not bad, I've had it multiple times but I just started reviewing on here and can't remember much of how the beer was the first couple of times I'd had it. And although I understand the beer, I'm just not the greatest fan of it.

12.99 for a 750 ml bottle. poured into an oversized wine glass. best before 6/18/14

a- pours a hazey hazey goldish orange with little head

s- rosemary and sweetness.and ginger and honey. there's a lot going on here.

t- strange. a mixture of pineapple, coyol wine. and cinnabons. and yeah, it tastes like beer with flowers in it. there's ginger present. really sweet. a little too sweet.

m- fizzy, very bubbly, light and creamy. warm alcohol presence but not boozy.

o- it's alright. i have tried other saisons and i think i'm just not a fan. this was interesting though. not something i'd buy again.

A: pours slightly cloudy with zero head, orange/yellow color, some lacing

S: nose features herbal notes with some sourdough, ginger, and some floral/ rose rose character

T: this tastes like biting into a handful of potpourri, extremely floral, so much so that it over shadows the base. Some moderate tartness sneaks through at the end.

MF: the body is surprisingly thick with high carbonation

O: well in theory, this beer sounds quite intriguing, and based on some of the reviews, some really enjoyed it. Perhaps the batch I got was off or maybe it needed time to mellow out, but I just can't get past the intensely floral character

had from 750 and poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy lighter orange color with a nice head

very complex with aromas of spices, citrus, fruitcake, hops, and some florals as well. Very good depth as well

extremely smooth medium feel. Polished with really good flavors of spices, coriander, citrus, and florals

A wonderful saison. Very complex and polished.

This is one of those beers that we see all the time in DC and I pass over far too often, and it's a very good saison that is very unique.

The color is nice, a very hazy orange hue with just a small ring of head, not much lacing but a little bit of suds stream down the sides of the glass.

The smell is amazing, it has tons of floral esters and a nice dose of honey blossom/ honey suckle flower. Also some nice Belgian yeast character with a fresh bread kind of note. Maybe some caramel or almost a pulpy maple note? Lots going on in the nose, it's inviting and I keep going back trying to figure out exactly what I'm smelling, overall it's a very nice experience.

Taste follows the smell, lots of fresh honey and honey suckle flower, really reminds me of eating a honey suckle straight from the bush. It might be a little over sweet as this covers some of the malt and yeast character, but I don't mind it too much. Again, a nice flowery note, not at all in the flowery hop centennial way but literally a plant flower smell kind of way, kind of amazing.

The feel is nice and slick, sweet and light, very nice solid feel.

Overall this is nice and definitely worth checking out if you haven't yet.

Pours a hazy yellow/orange with very little head. Carbonation seems fine though. Smell is very interesting and unique, a little yeasty with a mix of spices and, unsurprisingly, flowers, pretty impressive. Flavor isn't quite as impressive as the smell, but still very nice, it's a little too sweet, but it's a minor complaint, the flowers and spice really take over and it has a bit of a bitter finish. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, this is a nice, unique beer and certainly a pleasure to have tried.

bottle picked up by my wife at State Line in Elkton, Md. Best by 4/26/2015 Golden hue capped by a large moon crater head with amazing retention. Lacing hangs to the glass, tons of visiible bubbles. Nose is of yeast and dull earthiness. Taste is well balanced cracker sweetness rounded with flower and earth. Alchohol is upfront on this concoction. Mouth is full bodied. Wish I had another to age and compate.
