The beer pours a hazy golden-orange color with a white head. The aroma has a good bit of sweet citrus notes, with some Belgian yeast, some wheat and a little bit of floral quality. The flavor is similar, with the orange citrus notes and Belgian yeast coming through the strongest. There is a little bit of spice mixed in, as well as some wheat. Everything starts off fine, but the finish is a little bit muddy, which detracts from the overall flavor. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. (489 characters)

Large shared bottle.
Very effervescent with a relatively large, semi-durable white head.
Very low funk for style. Nicely fruity. Lively, crisp and dry.

O: great choice as a session saison. (193 characters)

Pours out a nice dark golden color, the body is slightly hazy and the head, thick and frothy, is white and is at least three fingers thick. It also creates a thick lacing around the ale. The aroma is light, but you can pick up some floral notes mixed in with plenty of citrus fruits, apples and berries. Is a semi-dry ale with some mild phenol flavors and a hint of lemon zest, it’s a little spicy as heads towards the back of your mouth and is mildly tart over all. The mouthfeel is light-to-medium and goes down well, the aftertaste is sweet and only a hint of alcohol is present. Overall, this is a really good saison. (623 characters)

Cork popped out easily. pours a hazy golden yellow. Smell booze, saison yeast, pepper, band aid. I do not pick up on the booze as much in the taste. Pick up on straw or grass, pepper, nice saison yeast taste. Clean and dry finish.

I ejoyed their Tripel and Biere de Garde more than this one, but it is still a good beer. A little overpriced though as I can get other saisons for the same price that are better. (412 characters)
