Leighton (11348) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2012
Bottle shared with Charlie in Vineyard Haven, MA. Pours a faintly hazy gold with a weak, white foam head. Aroma is all rough candied sugar, some yeasty dough. Medium sweet flavor with lots of candi sugar, some grainy and doughy malts, some bitter straw, hints of plastic. Medium bodied with average to heavy carbonation. Sweet finish with still more candied, Belgian sugar and an awkward, abrasive bitterness. Subtle notes of licorice. The alcohol is a bit unpleasant. Not a great beer.

Bottle from BottleSelect.com. Pours hazy amber with a creamy beige head. Aroma is sort of lightly spiced light stone fruit. Near med body. Flavor is spice and some sort of citrus. Meh. Itís a little gluey in flavor. Maybe even in texture. Finishes a little bit peppery/spicy.

jcwattsrugger (11113) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUN 24, 2011
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 Iíve 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.

Lubiere (10152) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 26, 2012
A hazed golden saison with a thin off white head. In aroma, light perfumey grain with fruit pulp, apple and pears, nice. In mouth, a nice chalky saison with herbal spices, cloves, not bad. Tasted at Drink Craft Beer Summerfest Fest, July 14 2012.

12oz bottle. Poured a hazy yellow color with an averaged sized head. Some fruitiness, grassy and grainy. Tasty for some of the gluten free beers Iíve tried in the past.

Sammy (8726) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2012
Its missing some body, , still drinkable. Spicy Vegetable, something I would be Ok with health food, like buckwheat and chia seeds. Pronounced orange peel is a nice touch.Dry finish, carbonation is above average. Saison yeast in aftertaste. Medium yellow, a foamer with a touch of lace.

MartinT (7956) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2010
My Bottom Line:
Zesty mandarine-like fruitiness floats around the firm sorghum flavors, creating a very drinkable and well-dried out Gluten-Free Saison.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the clear golden.
-The citrusy fruitiness is important throughout, but never becomes overbearing.
-That sorghum flavor is surely one must get used to...
-The light body and prevalent fruitiness make this quenching.
-This is certainly more harmonious a flavor profile than that of the Celia IPA that was tried a few months back.

On tap at the brewpub.

deyholla (6719) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 23, 2011
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.

Glouglouburp (6078) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 3, 2011
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 thatís its saving grace. It didnít 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.
