Pours a clear light orange. Malty molasses in the nose. Hints of honey and citrus. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. No discernable hoppiness, though thereís a sight bitter aftertaste. A rather odd ale, but a good one.

Underdogs88 (97) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Citrus and pine on the nose. More ipa like than saison. Cloudy straw color with a white head with good retention. Flavor is muddled with a high level of bitterness. Pepper notes are high. Mouthfeel is light and astringent. Overall, it's a poor saison. I would not recommend it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JerseyBrew (35) - Hillsborough, New Jersey, USA - AUG 24, 2014
This is an ipa. Why are they calling it a saison. Sorry. Yes it has a very slight saison aroma. But this is an ipa with saison yeast. Horrible version of the style. All flavors are muddled. Try again free will. Just like the rest of the beers brewed by this company. It is sad that they are still even open ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Travlr (11812) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Draft at Alís. Hazy golden straw color. This one is very fruity with a decent amount of barnyard funk.

HeadyDE (502) - Delaware, USA - AUG 14, 2014
bottle pour..pours a fairly dark orange that is a bit hazy when held up to light..lacing all the way around the glass..pretty impressive start..nose is spicy candied lemon/ginger mixture..with some orange on the end..mouthfeel is medium bodied pretty tasty hoppy saison that has some noticeable alcohol legs..better than anticipated..like the mixture of spices that close things down..

BeerandBlues2 (9685) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Tap at Alís of Hampden. Pours lightly hazy orange with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is biscuit and honey malt, earthy and spicy hops with light apple esters. Flavor is malt dominant, light hops and medium bitterness, light esters and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

jrodooo5 (1016) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Pours dark gold w/ a big white foamy head & spotty lacing. The aroma is quite spicy & robust. The taste doesnít quite carry the aroma through. Itís spicy up front but the high alcohol makes this beer finish quickly w/ a somewhat off putting boozy taste. Finishes pretty dry & astringent. Decent but not great!

alobar (2776) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Pours a clear straw yellow color with aroma of citrus, pine, and spice. Citrus flavor with spice, yeast, and pine. Very nice beer.
