drsordr (986) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Bottle golden pour with copper hue. Nose banana, pear, ester, some clove. Taste sweet up front with belgian style fruit. Some bubble gum. Just a hint of metallic/vegetal late in the mid palate. Spice mixed with bitter for the finish. Smells a little better than it tastes, but not bad.

arojewski (49) - Old Bridge, New Jersey, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Consumed from bottle purchased warm then refrigerated. Excellent fruity aroma, with an almost wheaty taste that I’d normally shy from. Light mouth feel. Goes great with lobster!

Not a great beer, but a very decent brew from this company. Pours a little hazy yellow with a small white head, smells and taste of spices and a bit of dried fruit.

chalicemaster (109) - Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Not sure that score up there fairly represents the quality of this saison. Dried fruit and spice on the tongue and a very subtle tangy finish, medium head and slightly disappointing clear appearance. This isn’t exactly robust, but it’s very serviceable and not offensive in any way.
