A-
POURS A DEEP ORANGE WITH A THICK FLUFFY HEAD.

S -
YEAST RIGHT OUT OF THE BOTTLE. FOLLOWED BY A REAL POTENT SWEET ORANGE SCENT. SCENT IS ROUNDED OUT BY A CORIANDER GINGER COMBO

T-
REALLY SWEET ORANGE UP FRONT AND I FIND THIS TASTES TAKES OVER MOST OF THE TASTE. SLIGHT SPICY TANGY NOTES TOWARDS THE END

M -
LIGHT BODY NOT VERY BUBBLY, AND THERE IS A TINGLY SENSATION ON THE TONGUE

O -
BEER HAS POTENTIAL IF AGED. HAD THE BOTTLE FOR 3 MONTHS BEFORE I POPPED IT PROABLY WOULD BE BETTER IN ANOTHER 5 MONTHS. IF THE SWEET ORANGE PEEL TASTE FADES.

A-cloudy dirty gold with a nice cream colored head

S-musk, orange peel. belgian spices. some ginger

T-comes in with a biting taste of orange peel and some belgian spices. definitely has somewhat of a subtle saison funk to it, though very light. it has a bite of ginger. its complex, though not too balanced. this is unique for sure.

M-medium carbonation with a dry finish

O-extremely disappointed with these two breweries. it tastes like an american version of a strong belgian pale ale. really, this was OK, i enjoyed it...but i don't want it again. not a good saison. i think they tried way too hard and added too many ingredients...it is what i call the Dogfish effect. i won't get this again.

750ml purchased at Cigar City.

This beer is a bit of a gusher but nowhere near as bad as some of the reviews here indicate. Pours a dark golden orange color with tangerine edges and a one finger frothy white head that quickly settles into a thin ring. Spotty lacing left behind.

Heavily spiced aroma with a stronger citrus presence and less barrel character than the cedar version. Lots of pepper, ginger, coriander and clove followed by orange peel, grapefruit and pineapple. Subtle earthy wood presence but it's really overpowered by the spice a citrus.

Medium bodied with tight carbonation and a prominent zesty spice presence up front that lingers over the sweet citrus, bready yeast, pale malt and earthy wood notes into a dry finish. Lots of ginger, white pepper and coriander countered by orange peel, grapefruit and mango before the wood spirals come on strong in the finish. Very dry and earthy at the end of the palate with damp wood and toothpick flavor overtaking the citrus sweetness. Pretty good with some nice grapefruit character but not as well balanced as the other treatments with the heavy spice and wood notes overpowering the other flavors.
