Draft at Brixx Knoxville. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves some decent lacing. Solid lemongrass notes on the nose. Crisp and tart on the tongue with a bit of funk on the finish. Interesting interpretation of the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by Eline @ Van Moll Brewpub. Lightly hazy yellow to light orange color, full sized white head that lasts for quite a long time. Aroma is lightly malts, sorachi ace is clearly present, lightly a hint of yeast. Taste lightly malts, some yeast again, sorachi ace again, a touch of orangepeel, slightly zesty, lightly a soft bitter finish. Decent body and carbonation with that 7.6% ABV pretty well hidden.

At a tasting, thanks Ariel, big almost gushing fluffy stable head, very cloudy palre orange color, aroma of rotten oranges, candid fruit and some spiciness, strong flavor of rotten oranges with hints of fruit and candy, light and a touch coarse bitterness and a light sweetness. Nice but not too interesting.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Brian's in Brooklyn. Very hazy orange-golden pour with dense frothy head. Aroma is zesty spicy saison - orange and lemon peel with clove and cinnamon. Taste follows - very lemony zesty (sorachi ace?) and usual saison flavors. Crisp and bubbly (fine bubbles). Very solid saison but maybe not as special as I'd hoped.
