COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer you are holding is unique. A special strain of yeast and a warm fermentation produces a beer of exceptional flavor and aroma. An extended secondary maturation and bottle conditioning ensures all these unique qualities are preserved and evolve over time. Serve at 50°F in a tulip glass.

What to expect
This tawny orange beer pours with a rocky white head. Aromas of passion fruit, tangerine, and black pepper hit the nose. Flavor is a cascade of orange, lemon verbena, ginger and pepper. And in a second it is gone, finishing with a dry and lingering bitterness that awaits another sip.

Cellaring Information
Store upright in a dark dry place at cellar temperature (ideally at 50 degree). Cellar limit is 2 years.

Bottle. Poured a hazy orange color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus, ginger floral and yeast aroma. Medium body with a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectation where exceeded.

hopscotch (10522) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Bottle... Pours hazy and deeply golden with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Great retention. The fruity, spicy nose is a nice marriage of citrus fruits and peppery hops. Medium to full-bodied and lightly creamy with prickly carbonation. As with the aroma, the flavor is spicy and fruity, but also presents pale grains, apricot peel and moderately bitter hops. Spicy, tongue-numbing finish with a mildly bitter, tannic pinch. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

Lukaduke (2908) - Gray, Maine, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Bottle thanks to adnielsen ! Pours a slightly hazy blondish golden color with a big fizzy sticky head. On the nose there is some subtle peppery spice mingling nicely with lemony citrus and a touch of doughy malt. The palate follows nicely with nice citrus notes and a nice clean palate. A touch watery but well balanced saison.

RoyalFlushing (326) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Bottle poured a cloudy apricot with orange hues, huge fluffy white head, and notable lacing. Aroma includes citrus, honey, and guava. Taste begins with orange and lemon zest followed by hints of pepper, pear, slight yeast funk leading to a clean crisp finish. Extremely drinkable with flavors lingering. Love this saison!

750 ml bottle to snifter (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks good; a hazy orange with off-white lacing. Smells of citrus, hops, and yeast. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A good example of the style.

Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike. The beer is hazy and light orange colored with a half inch of white head. Typical aromas of grass, citrus, yeast, light spice. The flavor offers some mint and herbal notes, with everything coming together nicely. Not upper tier, but an enjoyable beer nonetheless. Light bodied with a pleasant aftertaste. Pretty good.
