4.05/5  rDev +8.3%

A - Pours a hazy orange/brown with three fingers of off-white head. Head has very good retention and leaves some lacing.

S - White grapes, yeast funk, a bit of coriander and orange zest with faint wood notes.

T - Surprisingly malty up front. Otherwise the taste is similar to the smell but with a much stronger wood presence, which adds to the dryness of the taste. Also more citrus in the taste than the smell. Pretty tasty, but would be better if the malts were more subdued to yield a crisper taste.

M - Medium-full mouthfeel is pretty smooth with a dy finish and a lingering wood presence.

O - Nice flavors in thus saison, but I think it is just a bit too heavy on the malt, which makes it less refreshing than it could be. The wood elements are nice though, and I look forward to trying the grapefruit wood version.

Thanks to Dixonian for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a light orange-yellow color with a white head. The aroma has a hint of lemon in it, as well as some biscuit malt and maybe a little bit of cedar or other wood. The flavor is similar, with some subtle lemon notes coming through at the front. I also get some biscuit and toffee malt, as well as some Belgian yeast. The alcohol is well hidden. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. I tried the Grapefruit, Cedar and Lemon versions of this beer on the same night and this one was the most subtle in terms of both aroma and flavor. Now, to find some way to try the Orange version.

A - Hazy orange lemon with small off white head 3

S - Orange, lemon, coriander, bit sweeter than expected 3

T - Lemon, bubblegum, slight wheat. Lemon comes across in the backend with a light tartness. Slightly Belgianrsque with the bubblegum. Also got some dark fruit sweeetness

MF - Medium carbonation but a thick body with more syrupiness than I'd expect

O - Much sweeter than I'd like in a Saison. It just has too much going in and it doesn't meld together well.

Light orange with a foamy head. Lacey.Less funky than the cedar, yet still a farmhouse taste. Some funk aroma. Smooth and mellow despite the lemon taste, this is not like lemon mashed in. Yeast significant. Undercarbonated.

Thanks to jtd1969 for sharing this.

A - copper-gold with 1/2" of white, soft head that has decent retention

S - yeasty, funky, white grapes, wine

T - apple, pear, coriander, ginger, lemon, winy, a bit tart

M - viscousy, crisp, winy, medium bodied

This is a decent beer. It's got good flavor, but it's a bit viscous and winy. White wine fans will love this one.

4.33/5  rDev +15.8%

A - Pours orange with lively foam. Visible carbonation. No lacing of note. Cloudy appearance.

S - Scents of lemongrass, peppery spice, and a slight yeasty scent. Reminded me of lemon\pepper marinade.

T - Just an awesome flavor of fresh lemon citrus, peppery spice, and a tartness with a dash of grain. As a lover of citrus flavors, this was a homerun.

M - Smooth, well blended, and a spicy bite at the end to contrast with puckering tartness.

O - Love both breweries, and was not disappointed. My friend picked up the cedar aged variant. Curious if it is as good.

750ml bottle

A- Poured into a Cigar City tulip glass. Pours an amber color with an off-white head.

S- The aroma is fruity malt with orange peel, lemon, spices and yeast. The aroma Ishmael a lot of citrusy notes. Smells awesome, can't wait to try!

T- The taste is fantastic! The taste has some malt and yeast flavors along with some citrus and coriander as well.

M- The mouthfeel is between light and medium bodied with a high amount of carbonation.

O- Overall, this is an excellent beer from two fantastic breweries.

750 mL bottle poured into an Allagash chalice. Bottle dated 12/13/2011.

Appearance - Not a gusher like the Grapefruit. Pours a mostly clear orange body with a small head. Swirls on the surface, but no real lacing.

Smell - Again, biscuit malt all over. Sweet aroma with loads of esters and yeast. Citrus fruits dominate the aroma behind the malt. I feel like I smell lemon, but I probably don't. No real funk but it's estery.

Taste - It's still a lot of pale malt, but this one doesn't seem as bad as the grapefruit. It's sweet, but I feel like more flavors come through. Perhaps a touch fruitier than the aroma. The wood is much less prevalent in this one, but I still kinda get some lemon. What does lemon wood taste like anyway?

Mouthfeel - I dunno. It should be just as sluggish as the grapefruit. Maybe I'm more tolerant today. I still wish it was lighter, but it's not that tough to drink. Not as bitter or woody in the finish.

Overall - Still a malt overload, but it seems more balanced in this one. I'm probably completely wrong and it probably tastes the same. Who knows.

Big thanks goes out to beermeX2 for sharing this one during a recent tasting! Served from bottle into a Mikkeller taster flute. Poured a slightly hazy golden yellow-orange with a one finger pure white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, citrus, wood, fruit, and very subtle alcohol. The flavor was of sweet malt, citrus, lemon rine, wood, fruit, tobacco, and subtle alcohol. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a fairly decent brew. Out of the three, this one was my least favorite. It really just seemed a little off to me. Still a solid brew, but just lacking from the other two. Still worth trying if you get the chance though.

Poured from the bottle numerous times into a small snifter at Churchkey. Much thanks to Ed you are awesome!

Orange body hits with incredbile clarity, much like a tangerine, presented with a real nice white collar that always sticks around.

The nose on this beer is incredible. First hints of cedar wood sense, mixing with a splintery action. Sour lemon turns into juicy sour orange sense, with tangerine. Zesty, and fresh, citrus oils just explode with an incredible balance with the wood sense. Absolute friggin magic.

Malt sweetness comes on the palate first, with mild honey. Then the notes on the nose come, fruit orange quality, and zesty character. After taste hits with a quick spice of hot pepper on the finish also. Mouthfeel hits all the right notes, nothing exceptional just real solid.

I could nose this beer all day, in fact I would rather shove it up my nose than drink it. But who wants to do that? More!
