Thanks to Skyview for sharing! A funky fruit aroma on the golden yellow pour. The warmer it gets, the fruitier the aroma. The body is a little light, but decent.

750 ml bottle thanks to Ibrew2or3. Pours a cloudy orange color with a very large and foamy white head. The aroma is quite unique; a sweet and soft spicy nose with lots of guava. The flavor is dominated by a yeast spicy mix alongside a ton of nice guava flavors. Quite nice and unique.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2011 750ml bottle purchased from Total Wine in Tampa. Pours an hazy orange with tons of head. The Guava flavor is nice with a good mix of sour and tart. This is a very innovative saison, points for that.

Slightly hazed orange with a fluffy off white head and lace. Sour aroma with a hint of pepper. Light sour flavor, a dry start with a semi sweet finish. Medium bodied but just a hint of watery.

Hazy golden pour, huge white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, yeasty esters, and some sour funk. The funk is there, and there is a nice peperiness you would find in a saison too. Flavor is quite dry, and fruity with some more sourness. The carbonation is a little over the top, and it does take away from my enjoyment, but other than that, this is a great saison. A nice beer but I just fine if lacks that saison crisp, refreshing lightness, it seemed a little too dense and heavy.

Bottle thanks to juiceisloose. A fruity saison that is a bit on the sweet side. Troical fruit flavors with a bit of that saison barnyard.

750ml bottle once again from Chris.... Pours mostly cloudy orange brown with a moderate cloudy white head... Tropical fruit aroma with very little guava but still quite fruity... Fruity quite lively, tangy yet sweet refreshing flavor. Soft yet vibrant flavors...I’m a fan.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Bottle shared by MaxxDaddy. Pours with a large, firm head, cloudy golden orange. Very sweet, tropical fruit aroma, light caramel and clove, a touch of cinnamon. They can get away with it in the aroma, but the flavor is a near diabetic coma. Horrendously sweet, nearly undrinkably so, and incredibly far from what saison should taste like. Ugh! The rest is going down the drain.

750 ml at lithy’s Septemberfest. Opaque orange-peach with a lasting creamy disc of foam. Nose of cheese, funk, white wine and muscadine. Flavor is pretty much the same, with more fruitiness and some pepper. Light body is dry and fizzy.
