3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy orange pour with a big fizzy, thin white head. Lots and lots of carbonation. Aroma was very spicy, yeasty and fruity. Flavors had all of the standard saison flavors mixed in with a well rounded fruit presence, some pepper. Lots of yeasty influence with a light bitter finish. Enjoyable for sure. Share it.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml bottle via trade, thanks Jason. Poured an apple cider body underneath a large foamy white head. Aroma of guava, oranges, tropical fruits, wet bread, zest and rind of citurs fruits. Fuller bodied with loads of carbonation and a lingering bite on the finish. Flavor isn’t as good as the aroma sort of dirty and earthy with some citrus and guava along with pepper and slight spiceyness. Blah this is so-so.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2011 750ml bottle courtesy of John.... Pours a hazy, semi-opaque, reddish copper brown and topped with a creamy white head... Fruity aroma guava and bright semi-tart fruit. Lasting fruity impression... Flavors are an exact continuation of the same with vivid notes of guava. Sweet upfront, through the middle, and a dry finish. Body is light to medium but refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle courtesy of MikeLuke23. Thanks Mike. Pours a clear copper with a three finger white head that has good retention and leaves very little lacing on the glass. The aroma is big guava, a bit of funk as well as a little bit of grassiness and little pepper. The initial taste is big guava with a bit of sweetness. Then comes some light funk, pepper, and a slight grassiness. The finish is relatively dry with the guava lingering. Medium body. Heavy carbonation. A bit overcarbonated.

75cl bottle, thanks Travlr. Cloudy amber body, medium off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, guava. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, guava. Medium body, light resin. Seems more like an IPA (or IIPA) than a Saison.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, courtesy Travlr. Weird drinking Florida beer via a non-Floridian, but there is a first time for everything: Pour is hazy orange/gold with a nice white head. Decent retention/lacing. Aroma is guava, floral/citrus hops, fruity esters, grain. Taste is guava, grapefruit, pineapple, cereal, dry finish. Palate is clean, dry, oily, long fruity finish. I prefer the original.
