Tried it at the Toronto Festival of Beer. Almost orange in appearance and absolutely stunning from the moment it hit my mouth to the moment it was gone. Citrusy flavour and aroma. An exceptionally smooth beer.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2004 On tap at the judge. Taps a cloudy orange with a nice tight frothy cap. Aromas of fresh fruits and spicey yeast smell. Starts tart and citrusy then mellows with a sweet malty departure accented by spice and apricot...finish is clean and refreshing. A much cleaner and refreshing drink than it’s Belgian original...I like this as much as a light hefeweiss for quenching....a very nice brew for the summer.

Cloudy orange, cream colored head. Aroma was nice, yeasty and spicy, light citrus. Earthy, spicy, light yeast. Dry, slightly acidic. Overall pretty nice but was missing that nice Belgian funk.

Draught at the Toronto Beer Festival 2004. Hazy golden in appearance...sweet floral yeasty aroma. Sweet and kinda spicy makes for a fantastic summer beer.

Yeasty, fruity(citrus?) and wheat? in the nose, cloudy, orange/apricot with a small, tight cream head. Distinctive taste, has malt, hops , grapefruit and bread. Very well balanced, ultimately refreshing, throat tightningly dry, but I like that in a Saison. Most enjoyable! Well done Black Oak!

On tap at C’est What. Poured a murky orange-brown colour. I couldn’t quite get my head around this beer, I really liked it but couldn’t place all the flavours. Nice fruity flavour, floral nose. Surprisingly bitter on the finish.

Pours hazy red/orange. Fruity peppery nose with notes of yeast. Earthy and sweet. Some Tangerine, yeast, and piney flavours. Rounded and smooth. Soft carbonation. Light spicey dry finish.

Cloudy, slightly murky bronze-brown. Yeasty, citrusy, mildly spicy aroma. Soft feel. Sweet, yeasty flavour combines w/ a soft maltiness & peppery finish.

cloudy orange. Yeasty aroma. But then bitter and lacking carbonation, even watery. Spicy yeast, corriander pepper, Orange peel gives it an acidic bitterness. Thanks jercraigs.
