On tap at the brewpub in Waterbury, VT. I’m quite surprised to see that it has such low ratings, because I thought it was arguably the best beer that I had at the brewpub (and I ordered multiple of it). Poured a nice bright yellow gold with large (yet quickly dissipating) white head. Had a nice peppery flavor to it, with an almost flowery feel as well. Almost "dances" on the tongue, for lack of a better term. Perhaps I was there when they had a great batch on tap...I really liked it.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2012 on tap-pours a dissipating off white head and cloudy orange color. Aroma is grapefruit/lemon/perfumy, light malt. Taste is pepper/spice/grassy, lemon/perfumy hops, light malt, some yeast. Probably the best gluten free beer I’ve had. 3.6******************* *120621-12oz bottle @Tampa Weekly thanks GatorGuy92-pours yellow/gold with a white ring. Aroma is yeast, spice, light malt. Taste follows with some perfumy phenols. Not the same beer I had on tap at the brewpub, not even close. 2.4 Will leave the original score, just updating here for my notes.

On tap at the brewpub on November 4, 2010. Pours a moderate amber color with nice white head and a bit of lacing as the beer goes down. Nose brings some floral hops, citrus, spice, generic sweetness, and some light fruits. The flavor is pretty light and delicate. There’s some citrus, light peach, some stone fruits, a bit of spice, mildly-sweet malt, and a touch of earth. Pretty good body and carbonation. Smooth and easy-drinking. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 11-14-2010

Draft @ the brewpub. Orange pour with white head. Some light citrus and coriander and herbal tea. Almost like a sahti.

Draft. Pours an orange golden body with a white head. Dry earthy herbal hop tones, a hint of lemon and citrus notes. Load of orange peel with a lightly drying finish. Amarillo hop tones, and a bit grainy, with a hint of apple. Okay.

Draft at the brewpub back in Nov 2010: golden amber with a foamy white head, spicy aroma, sour tasting, some spices as well. Not a favorite of mine.

In short: A dry pale Belgian ale with plenty of orange peels. Acceptable
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear golden body topped by a long-lasting small off-white head
In long: Nose is a bit citrusy, orange peels and maybe a tiny tiny of barnyard. Not much classic Saison going on in the nose and only found faint traces of barnyard because I knew it was a Saison and I wanted to find some. Taste is more of the same. The beer uses orange peels and it is what dominates the beer. Bitter orange peels upfront with other citrus fruits in the back. I find that type of bitterness a bit aggressive. Overall the beer is quite dry and that’s its saving grace. It didn’t come through as much of a Saison to me, especially compared to their Uncle Daddy Saison I had 5 minutes before which was very Saison. I suppose it is hard to get the best out of a Saison in a gluten-free beer. Decent beer, no more. Anyway, I decided that going to the excellent Alchemist for a gluten-free beer was like going to a brothel to get a hug.

On tap at the brewpub. Poured a clear orangish gold with a large white head that lasted throughout the beer and laced nicely. Aroma was full of light fruits with backing notes consisting of spice, light grain, light citrus and floral notes. Flavor was full of similar light fruits, particularly apple, with a relatively strong citrus note coming out in the finish. There were some backing notes of light grain and spice.

Tap at the Alchemist. Pours a mostly clear light golden yellow with a thin white head- leaves ok lace. Aroma is light phenolic yeast, but I get a strange slight solvent acetone thing going on which throws the the whole beer off- gritty grain and some light doughy notes, slight lemon zest. Flavor is toast, light grains, lemon, old cereal and cobwebby must with some apple juice notes, and a gritty tacky grain feel in the end which gets astringent. I wasn’t feeling this beer at all, especially compared to their other great beers which were on at the time.
