A: Gorgeous vibrant orange. Completely opaque with hazy - the edges are bright yellow and the center is radiant orange. A glowing beer. The is a fizzy and foamy bright white, but denser than a traditional saison.

S: Very refreshing, subtle and pleasant. A very fresh aroma with little must or funk. Orange peel, lemon zest, and very subtle coriander - very not-funky belgian yeast - bready.

T: Similar to the aroma - not very complex, but very refreshing and surprisingly full. Orange, lemon, bread/biscuit, and yeast.

P: Very creamy and full bodied for the style, and softer carbonation - and it works

O: An interesting example of the style - not breaking any boundaries or records, but a very solid

I got this 22oz brown bottle at Sal's Liquors in Addison, IL for $7.99. No freshness date.

The beer poured a hazy pale gold color with less than a ½-finger's worth of white head that dissipated quickly to a thin rim and left very little lacing.

The beer had a fruity smell with a whiff of spicy yeast, but overall there wasn't much to the smell.

It has some fruit flavor, but overall it's more spicy than fruity. It has an earthiness to it as well. There's a touch of alcohol in the finish and 50 IBU's worth of bitterness.

Medium mouthfeel, crisp, and with a dry finish. Carbonation is on the high side.

Not sure how saison-y it is, but I liked it.

Got this on tap at the brewpub, was served to me in a tulip.

A - Golden color with a lively foam. Some lacing is noted.

S - Smells of yeast, malts, citrus, grapes, fruity effervescence, a bit like champagne

T - Mildly tart flavor, very good, very crisp, wheat, yeast, malts, grapes, citrus, bit of hops

M - Medium body, medium levels of carbonation, balanced well with the flavors

O - Over all a good beer from a great brewery. It was what I expected from a Saison and it was delicious and didn't cost too much either. Recommended by me.

Picked up this bomber at my local Jewel Grocery store. I love how they've expanded their beer selection.

Clear, dull, copper copper. Very quick head and no residual foam. There's a few lazy pillars of bubbles.

Earthy, light hops, chalky dry smelling yeast. Mildly toasted, crisp crackers. maybe a little dry caramel.

Dry, but syrupy palate. Chalky, dry fruit yeast flavor. A little alcoholic heat. The finish is crackers, toasty, caramel, and faint grass.

Not a bad saison, but I probably won't buy this again.
