Nice yellow orange color, smells tart. Very refreshing lime tartness. Don’t get a lot from the orange. Very drinkable.

750 mL bottle poured. Huge thanks to luttonm, (and Chris) for the share! Always a treat. Tart promising, floral aroma. Fantastic, slightly tart lime constant. Juicy orange with a tart remainder. Slight floral. I want to drink a ton of this, but enjoy the slow savor. Very well executed saison here. Loved it.

Bottle in Seattle. Big thanks to Chris for bartering this to me. Dissipating pretty foam. Red grapefruit tinge to hazy orange. Gorgeous aroma, acidic and juicy citrus. Spicy lime acidity on sip. Rosy body. Clean, fruity, light acidity. Crazy delicious.

La bière est d’une couleur orange / rosée avec très peu de carbonatation et d’effervescence. Au nez, les levures sauvages volent la vedette. On reconnait également derrière la brett le côté levure saison à la vermontoise. En bouche, les oranges sanguines prennent toute la place, les bretts sont à peine distinguables. On a réellement l’impression de goûter un San Pellegrino à l’orange. Peu ou pas d’amertume. Corps assez rond. Taux de buvabilité ultra élevé. Bière solide.

Thanks Huhzubendah for sharing the bottle! Poured into a snifter showing cloudy orange with white foam gathering around the rims. The nose is as described - orannge and limenotes with hints of hibiscus/rose petals here and there. The palate is medium bodied and fully carbonated like a saison. Flavors of moderately intense blood oranges and hibiscus petals but completely dry. The mid-palate reveals a light bitterness and an even lighter citrus. The finish shows a light citric zest with a resurgence of light citrus on the linger.

750mL bottle. Pours a cloudy pinkish orange (clear, burnt orange if you don’t pour the sediment) with a small white head. Aroma is blood orange, funk, and hints of spice. Taste is tart, citrusy, somewhat sour with just a little yeast. Long, dry orange finish. Light body. Average carbonation. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel.

May 2015 bottle. Held up really well. Poured a hazy yellow with a big fluffy white head. Aromas of citrus, hay, funk, spice, tart. Flavor follows the nose with lemon, lime, orange, hay, slight spice, tart, and funk. Light body, sticky texture, lively carbonation, tart finish.
