Pours an orange color with a white head awesome lacing. Smells of grass, Belgian yeast and fruit. Tastes of grass, Belgian yeast, a sweet fruit flavor I?m assuming from the elderflower and a peppery presence with a slight hop bite. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with amazing carbonation. Overall this is a very flavorful saison and is one of the better beers in the Beers of the Apocalypse series.

From bottle. Deep golden hue, at first skeptical about elderflower, but gave it a sweet fruit aftertaste.

Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle. The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma has some Belgian yeast notes, as well as some floral and biscuit malt notes. The flavor is different. I get some tart lemon notes, as well as some floral character. I also get some yeast and biscuit malt notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

(22oz bomber thanks to mora2000) clear rich gold, ring of fine tan bubbles. Nose of sawdust, umami, classic but not perfect, peppery but mild. Taste of peppercorns, stone fruit, sawdust, umami. Medium body, very carbonated.

ben4321 (3559) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from Half Time, 10/3/12

Aroma: The nose is rather floral, with some spice, fruity notes, and some yeast and grass as well
Appearance: Pours a cloudy orange color with a fizzy foam of off-white head and some drippy lace
Flavor: It tastes spicier then the nose, the floral notes are a touch more subtle, and there’s fruitiness too
Palate: It is medium bodied, going a bit outside of traditional palate terms: it has spice/tingle/yeasty feel
Overall Impression: Half Time was a heck of a store. I’m jealous of those who live near by, I think it has a better selection then my local store (with a similar feel): Buy Rite. Anyway, I enjoyed this beer. This is another really nice and interesting offering from the Elysian "12 Beers of the Apocalypse" Series, of which I have now rated 4 (#1, 2, 3, & 6). Well done here, Elysian.

Light golden in color, hazy with a thin head. Light floral flavors and finish. Lots of Belgian yeast flavors and aroma. Nice easy brew to fight Zombies with.

Heathen (1444) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 1, 2012
THOUGHTS: Very saison like in both initial sniff and sip, but then something changed. A stronger floral presence arrived in the aroma and then an odd bittersweet finish started to dominate the flavor. It was somewhat off-putting. It was sort of artificial and overly sweet at times. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, light amber with an average, fizzy, cream-colored head that almost fully diminished. The aroma had moderate caramel, pale malts and sugar water; moderate floral, perfume and herbal hops; moderate spicy and peppery yeast; and honey. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly bitter; while the finish was heavily sweet and moderately bitter and acidic with an average duration. There was caramel, herbs and flowers, sugar water, syrup, floral and herbal hops, lots of spicy and peppery yeast, and honey. The medium body was rather and mostly syrupy then a little dry and sort of oily with very fizzy carbonation and a moderate to heavily astringent finish.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 19, 2012
I guess it’s meant to be this hazy. Lightly tart and some estery yeast aroma grapes and gooseberries. Pretty thick with a slick mouthfeel and some booze. Pears in the finish there is the tiniest touch of elderflower musk in the aftertaste. The elderflower appears to have been blown out by the yeast.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 19, 2012
Floral and citrus notes in the tart yeasty aroma. Hazy amber-tan body is topped by a fizzy white head that lasts well and recedes to a thick ring and partial cover. Flavour has a sugary sweet note up front that is quickly joined by tart yeasty citrus notes with herbal and spicy hop character long into the finish. Medium light body is quite strongly carbonated and really prickles the front of the tongue. Tulip glass. Allowed to warm from fridge temperature. Bottle purchased at Brewery Creek in August 2012.
