Bottle poured an amber in color with a thin coating of white head that fell right off. Aroma has light hops, flowers, light orange rind, and some grains. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation on the lower side. Flavor has some yeast, light orange peels, minerals, and a bit of increasing bitterness into the finish. Interesting beer but not one I would go back to. Definitely the best gluten free beer I have tried by a long shot.

Pours a cloudy orange gold with a big white head. The aroma is clean and typical of a saison with clear evidence of the orange peel. The hops are earthy and funky. Iím not entirely sure where all of the low ratings come from here. I couldnít tell that this was gluten free... it had a nice round mouthfeel and clean finish.

jgb9348 (4636) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Hazy golden honey coloured body with a thin, half a centimetre tall white head. Aroma of something horribly pungent, some wet dog, cardboard, yeast, resin, and perhaps a hint of coriander seed - but this one smells pretty foul. Light-bodied; Sharp pungent cheese and bitter metal flavours at first with an awful medicinal finish and a deep unpleasant bitterness at the end. Aftertaste is just as bad with the bitterness from metal or medicine coming strong and hard, a hint of alcohol and a little bit of coriander seed, but nothing good at all. Overall, a very bad beer - even for a gluten free beer - not sure what award this beer won (from description), but it is one of the worst iíve ever sampled after spending so much for the bottle! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 11-December-2012 for US$3.00 sampled at home in Washington on 27-January-2013.

Gotta love Alchemist. After brewing a rock star IIPA, they follow with... a gluten-free, sorghum based brew! The label has a feminine drawing on the label, which suggests that women are the intended customers. Cloudy brown pour. Tangy aroma with some floral hops and yeast. The taste is tangy, lightly bitter, and has some smoky sorghum notes. There is something a little nasty in there too. Celia is not really that saison-like, but she is plenty flavorful for a non-gluten brew. Not great, but a good try at making something unique.

callmemickey (2485) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Pale golden body, moderate off-white head, spotty lacing. Nose is peppery, with some orange, grapefruit, bubblegum and a grainy presence. Not bad. Flavor just doesnít do it for me. Prickly with an astringent characteristic from the spicy sorghum notes. Orange peel and Belgian canít mask a lacking base profile. Medium bodied, astringent, dry, spicy, prickly, and a lingering finish.

Gription79 (2228) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. There is definitely a nail polish aroma to this, citrus, earthy, pine. Very interesting, a lot of acidity.

12 oz bottle courtesy of Vthophead. Pours light gold with a 1/2" of white head that recedes quickly leaving a thin ring. Light aroma featuring coriander, orange peel and very mild earthy hops. Light, citrus flavor, orange and lemon. Some peppery notes. Light bodied and easy to drink.

Had this a few years back at the brew pub and loved it . Knowing that was not a possibility anymore I was very happy to see the four pk at a local bottle store. By far the best gluten free brew I have tried ever, and a dam fine Saison.

Lightly hazy golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, sorghum, spices,and light toast. Taste of citrus, lighter sorghum, pepper, Saison yeast,and a drier finish.
