Pours an almost glowing orange. With a large white head. Floating particulates. Yeasty aroma. Flavor is sweet with the bitterness of citrus rinds.

rsmeds (228) - Turku, FINLAND - JAN 20, 2006
Bottle. Slightly hazy amber color. Small white head. Yeasty aroma, some alcohol, hint of barnyard skunkiness. Sweetish, hoppy, yeasty flavor. A bit watery, frankly, surprisingly enough. Slightly alcoholic aftertaste. Not what I had expected.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 15, 2006
Chunky proteins suspended among glimmers of orange and peach coloring. Full, creamy Belgian foam that lasts. Those Belgians sure know their head retention. Fairly expressive nose, which hints of lemon and lime, as well as hints of orange, tangerine and a spicy, peppery hoppiness. Flavor is fairly sweet, hoppy, with some honey covered fruit notes, citrus and vanilla. Nice balance.

oh6gdx (24920) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 6, 2006
Bottled. Amber/golden colour, mediumsized white foamy head. Aroma of fruit, barnyard and rubber. Also some spices. Flavour sweet hoppy with some rubbery notes. Some honeyish notes also. Refreshing,

mabjork (690) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 5, 2006
Bottled. Hazy light brown with a minor white head. The aroma is bitter and damp and the flavour consists of yeast, and alcohol. It’s watery and has no after taste,

thedm (5555) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 27, 2005
This bottled brew tasted in a tulip glass poured a very large sized head of foamy fine to medium sized very long lasting off-white colored bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body contained average carbonation, was semi-hazy and light orange brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of floral light brown malty . Its mouth feel is initially tingly with a lingering tingly palate and a smooth aftertaste. Its flavor contained nice malt brown malt notes and was very tasty. THis is a smooth flavorful well balanced enticing brew.

muzzlehatch (4464) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 12, 2005
750 ml bottle, from Bello Vino in Ann Arbor MI (Aug 2005), BBD 02/07. Typically immense, fully lasting head, meringue-like and delicate atop a bright golden body with coppery hints....delicate perfumy hints, flowers and marzipan are nearly overawed by the buttery-sour (don’t know how else to put it) huge yeastiness in the powerful aroma...body rather sweet, moderately yeasty-cobwebby, and surprisingly aged, almost cardboardy feeling, with an odd dusty-sour quality towards the finish that really doesn’t work....diacetyl, perhaps, and if not an infection then this really is not my cup of tea, despite the promise it showed at first. A very mixed bag, this one, and a disappointment from this fine brewery.

fluids (364) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 7, 2005
Medium white head. Huge bubbles. Dark yellow coloring. Heavy yeast smell. Saisonesque with caramels, orange and beautiful subtle hop lift in the middle. From the best place in Florida: Knightly Spirits in Orlando.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 22, 2005
Solid gold hazy body. Creamy soapy head with great lacing. Biting and enticing yeasty grassy hops. Pretty strong and nice aroma. Very soapy earthy taste. Stale dirty wood floor with some light caramel backing. Not bad. Very nice. Nice change in pace for me.
