3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2013 Slightly hazy pale golden with a small but frothy white head, good lacings. More phenolic and spicy than hoppy aroma, malty, fruity, whiff of grass. Taste is sweet malty, citrusy and spicy with notes of orange zest leading to a lingering bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of fiulijn. Pours yellow with a slight haze and a dense and lively white head leaving quite some lacework. Very spicy, fruity and yeasty nose. Medium body, a little initial sweetness, then a slight tartness. Typical spiciness from the Saison yeast and a distinct yeast character. The yeast dominates over the Citra here Iíd say. Dry but not overly bitter finish. 270612

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle from The Bottle Shop, Canterbury. Hazy orange gold lasting thick white head. Yes Belgian saisony aroma, with some piney American hop. You know what? Itís got quite a good Belgian saison quality but with a tight as your ass American twist. I like the Belgian authenticity, but it lacks a touch of the true wildness of a Belgian beer. If anything its too perfect, too clipped. Tasty as hell. I enjoyed it, even though it is a bit too good. Bit of perfume on finish, Decent bitterness on finish. Yep, like this.

Pours clear orange with a TON of frothy white head, had to scoop head off with a spoon actually. Great floral and citrus aroma. Spicy and mild hops taste. Really taste the saison in this more than the IPA. Decent overall but was hoping for more of an IPA taste

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy citrus, light floral notes, Belgian yeast, orange peel, and grapefruit. It pours a mostly transparent gold with just of touch of haze. It has a three finger soapy white head with excellent retention. Quite a bit of clumpy lacing is left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate citrus flavors. Thereís some hints of Belgian yeast in the background. The finish has moderate grapefruit, light-moderate floral notes, and just a hint of lemon peel. Itís light-medium bodied with lively, but not prickly, carbonation. Overall, itís a nice cross between an IPA and a Saison. I would lean towards labeling it as an IPA.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very well hopped citric nose with grapefruit and toasted cloves. Pours cloudy orange with a fluffy head. Flavour follows the nose and finishes with tangy hops and some sweet bubblegum. Not bad.

Bottle to snifter. Looks decent; a translucent orange with TONS of head. Smells like a decent saison. Tastes a little bitter for a saison, but not bad. Average mouthfeel. Decent.

On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours golden with an attractive beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a yeast-laden pale malt flavor that is fruity and slightly bitter. Nice hopping.
