Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. It pours with a reddish/golden hue, quickly fading white head. The aroma is faint, straw, wheat. The flavor profile is weak, tasteless. It does not have any flavors of a saison or Flanders red. the body is light, good carbonation, easy drinking. Taste like a light wheat beer, avoid it.

I poured a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance- Clear copper color with two fingers worth of quickly disappearing head. Light amount of lacing.

Smell- Faint aroma of malt and citrus.

Taste- Starts with some malty sweetness that turns slightly tart about mid-sip and finishes with a hint of orange peel and white pepper.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with an average amount of carbonation and a crisp finish.

Overall- This doesn't seem to be good example of the style, which is fine by me as I don't enjoy the pepper flavors associated with a saison. A decent enough beer that I might try again.

Beer color is medium gold/red. produced a one finger white head, which dissipated quickly.

Aroma is of a farmhouse funk, malts, and a light caramel.

Taste is similar, but with a little citrus, and slight hop presence. Upper, medium carbonation, and a medium mouth-feel.

Drinkable, but wouldn't buy it. It was a gift from a party guest, which thought I might like it, since I like craft beer.

Best before 1/6/14.

Pours a clear orange-red with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, yeast, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with malt and yeast flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that is drinkable but I am not getting any sort of the Flanders Red aspect that this is supposed to have.
