UPDATED: AUG 5, 2012 20120805 Updated Bottle version - Cloudy golden color with very small white head. Aroma/flavor is spicy with bready yeasts... much better than I remember from the brewpub. Spicy finish... love it... Draft at the brewpub - Poured a pale golden yellow in color with a small white head. Aroma was mildly spicy with some citrus and bready yeasts. Flavor was also spicy, some of which I attribute to the sorghum, with plenty of bread dough. Medium sour... a bit too for my idea of a Saison, but not unpleasant. Finish is slightly sour/tart, medium hoppy and clean. Not sure how the sorghum affected the production of his beer... although not a top effort, it is not a bad beer, but I see it as a bit of a "misfire" for such a quality brewer.

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.

Bottle at home. Pours a deep orange, slightly hazy, average head. Aroma is pungent, with band aid, funk, citrus, coriander. Medium bodied, strong saison yeast profile, lots of coriander and black pepper, orange, and a big bitter finish. Crisp and pretty clean, maybe a twang of medicinal flavors. If not labeled as sorghum, I wouldn’t have thunk it.

Bière orangée avec une faible mousse. Nez levuré et fruité (agrumes, banane, poire). En bouche, des saveurs d’orange, de citron et de houblon frais s’amalgament à une légère amertume. Une belle saison sans gluten que j’ai pris plaisir à boire sans gêne.

Bottle. 12 oz. Courtesy of my buddy Mark at work. Thanks, Mark. Pours nice clear orange with a thin wisp of white head. Aroma of a band-aid drizzled with honey. Tastes like orange flavored plastic. You know, I just don’t feel this beer deserves the rest of my attention. It’s terrible. Listen to TerdFerg: stick to the Topper. That beer is beyond awesome. Cheers. And on a personal note, please stop with the goddamn gluten-free bullshit. If you’re allergic, don’t drink beer. You don’t see Reese’s making peanut-butter-free cups for people with peanut allergies. Take heed.

Bottle, 07/19/2012. Pours hazy orange amber, sparse large-bubbled head. Nose is citrus, oregano, grassy hop character, grain (sorghum I guess), and strange, light rubber character. Taste has zesty citrus and fruit, spice, bitter grains. Light, smooth body, very dry. Meh. It seems this one was better on tap?

I am pretty sure this is my 1st gluten-free. poured a cloudy golden orange, with a nice sized white head that left some nice lacing. aroma sour orange, earthy, floral, citrus, yeast. flavor got pepper 1st thing, herbs, citrus, I don’t know what sorghum is suppose to taste like so the mystery flavor for me must be that . Good drinking beer
