3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a turbid blonde, head is thick lacy and lasts a fairly long time. I am partial to dark looking beers, but this is a very pretty pour. Aroma is that of orange juice, orange peel, and yeast. Tastes of mostly orange, light malts, and nutmeg with a hint of bittering hops. The mouthfeel is nice, thick, good carbonation, definitely adds to the beer. This is a very nice light belgian and I would definitely buy again.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2011 The color is an absolutely gorgeous cloudy gold. I mean really beautiful, almost-jizzed-my-past-while-pouring-it beautiful. Of course, unlike women (or maybe not...), appearance counts for little in comparison to taste and smell. The aroma entices, very sweet, very floral although spruce and caramel also come to mind. With a pleasant but overly potent presence of alcohol, the aftertaste satisfies.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 65cl bottle. Pours a yellow color with a small white head. Drank half one day and the rest a couple of days later and amazingly the taste, smell, and even carbonation was the same. Very sharp and crisp. Flavor is spicy, coriander, lemon, with just a touch of fruit sweetness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy pour with some white head. Citrus and spice aroma with a touch of leather. Fruit, spice and funk flavor are smoother possibly due to barreling. Belgian like notes are memorable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice saison that pours the typical color of the style and creates a huge, foamy, white head. The nose suggests a sourness that is never fully realized, as the taste only presents a very subtle sour twang. Otherwise, there’s a bit orange peel, subtle cloves, and just a bit of hops. Very nice beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle. 2010 vintage. Pours a cloudy yellow with a large amount of soapy white head with good retention. Aroma has some coriander, yeast, lemon, orange, and some hops. There is definitely some funkiness to the aroma. Flavor has some sweetness to it mixed with a hint of lemon and orange peel. There is some definitely some spiciness with the coriander in the flavor. The finish is really interesting. It is indeed creamy and dry. The creaminess is really unexpected from the first taste, which makes this a fun drink. The back of the palate, is really funky, but not necessarily in a bad way. It’s pretty much a transition from spice to pure funk. The beer is medium bodied with marginal carbonation. The first sip of this beer was really jolting, but the more I drank, the more I liked the finish and the more I admired its complexity. I will definitely seek these out again when I see them.
