Picked this up at the Foodery in Northern Liberties
Pours a deep gold color almost amber with a thick white head.
Aroma is a nice coriander and orange peel with some subtle hints of fruity esters. Very clean no off aromas.
Very spicy flavor i get a nice hoppy bittereness that segues into a soft malt background. The spices seem to be coriander, orange peel and some ligt pepper notes, although the pepper could be some of the yeast characteristics and carbonic acid.
Mouthfeel is good yet it could be dryer for the style. Maybe they should try kraeusening a batch to get that dry dupont bite.
Nonetheless for a brewer with no brewery this is an excellent beer, it must be hard to brew on someone else's system and produce exactly what you are looking for, still I would drink this again as it is a solid belgo-american.

1 PT. 6 FL.. OZ. bottle
Served in a tulip glass
Bottled April 2013
A - It is pale yellow in color and hazy. There are small particles of yeast suspended in it. It is topped with a couple inches of white head.
S - It has a nice fresh lemon scent. I also detect a little must.
T - The taste has some lemon and grass flavors. Then some bitterness sets in. At first I thought the bitterness was too much for this beer, but after half a bottle the flavors are meshing well.
M - Medium.
O - This is a refreshing saison. It hits the spot after working in a near 90° day. The bitterness is more than I care for in this style, but it is not overwhelming and compliments the lemon and must, so I won't complain.
