On tap at Patricks. It’s an unclear, golden beer topped by a small, dense, off-white head. Typical French saison yeast aroma, fruity and lightly spiced, grape fruit and orange peel. Alcohol notes, fruityness from the yeast, bitterness from the hops, and some spiced notes in the flavor. Full body, soft and pleasant carbonation, quite dry. Pleasant bitterness in the finish. Nice indeed! 130520

pours hazy medium dark golden orange with a nice reviving light beige-orange head, nice lacing. spicy fresh oranges, their leaves, other flowery citrus including orange blossom, peppery apricots, peaches and danky mangoes, soft pine needles, woodsy vanilla, very nice spicy yeast carrying low-fi phénols, lean pale lightly spicy maltiness - giving way for yeast and hops to express fully. lively carbonation - just slightly foamy though, light to medium body - oily; balanced grassy-spicy-citrusy finish. great yeast action, soft and very nice use of american C hops. very well crafted.

sebletitje (7029) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 28, 2015
Bouteille 50cl, batch#837, BB 20/06/2016. Orangée, col fin blanc modéré. Arôme est houblonné US, point de levure belge, avec un rendu houblonné rappelant un peu des notes herbacées et un rétro-nasal penchant sur les grains. Palais est houblonné aux saveurs agrumes, pointe herbacée avec une amertume restant assez agréable en fin de bouche. Apport houblonné laissant pensé à du pin avec un petit résiduel adouci. Fini sur un léger grains, malt pâle. Le caractère tropical des houblons tend à ressortir aussi, je note peu le profil dry-hopped de la bière.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2610) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle from World Beer Market, batch 736. It pours a deep copper with a soapy off-white head reminiscent of a bubble bath and yeah if I could I probably would climb into my glass. A sweet lemony citrus with nice belgian funk. Medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel. The taste is nice belgian funk, fruity/floral hops and a mild bitting bitterness & an earthy finish. Well done.

tom10101 (3269) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle (500 ml). Split 2-ways with the lady.

Appearance: Cloudy orange with a huge slowly diminishing off-white head and little lacing.

Aroma: Citrusy and herbal upfront with moderate spiciness, hints of berries and caramel.

Taste: Slightly sweet with citrus, herbal presence, good malt backbone, moderate spiciness and light bitterness.

Palate: Medium body. Moderate carbonation. A tad oily mouthfeel. Herbal and slightly spicy finish. Mild lingering orange peel aftertaste

Overall: Decent Belgian Ale. It’s tasty, but the lack of carbonation and the rather strong orange presence and spiciness doesn’t help the drinkability.

@ Basunen 15-2-6: ganska distrikt doft. Smaken har en liten diskret ton av humle med en lagom beska ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Vighals (1540) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JAN 9, 2015
Gylden brun litt tåkete med fingerhøyt beige skum. Lukter røde bær, sitrus og blomster. Smaker sitrussøtt med en fin lang bitter avslutning og ettersmak. Godt med kullsyre.

olio (6803) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 2, 2015
50 cl bottle @ wPBF III.
Pours slightly hazy orange color with a large head. Mandarin and orange peel on the nose, mild hop notes, yeast and some spices also. Orange flavor, mild yeasty notes, some soapy notes like on some Saisons. Very unique I’d say, good.
