This beer is brewed in the Belgian Saison style (country farm house ale). A potent yet delicate ale, brewed with a unique Belgian yeast which develops a spicy, fruity flavor. Enormously complex. Available from May to around August.

On tap at Taco Mac. Clear medium amber with a foamy white head that dissipates to a persistent cap; fair amount of lacing. Aroma is Belgian yeast, banana and clove. Moderately sweet with a clean finish. Body is light with active carbo. Decent, but not something I’d seek out in the Saison category.

Grainy and tart - weird dark fruit notes for the style, but enjoyable for sure. Just weird.

Pours a hazy orangish/gold color. Aromas of tart fruit, bread, citrus, and yeasty. Flavor is malty/citrus. Leaves a yeasty orange aftertaste.

Grassy aroma in a hazy golden pour. Superb sour fruit flavour is a typically American take on the style (in-your-face).

raymow (1345) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2015
bottled - Belgiany flavor and aroma. Orange-amber in color. Definitely drinkable, but not as good as expected - probably should try it again in the summer.

Dacrza (799) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - FEB 8, 2015
DATE TASTED: February 8, 2015... GLASSWARE: La Fin du Monde tulip... OCCASION: watching the Grammys and waiting for more inclement weather... APPEARANCE: cloudy, light yellow body; creamy off-white head settles to a reasonably bubbly half-inch; ... AROMA: instant lemon grass and bubble gum; pepper, clove, and a bevy of hop varietals to tantalize ... PALATE: quite drinkable, with a smooth, rum-like warmth and comfort; the finish is dry but welcoming and lingering...TASTE: a dramatically packed burst of hops that evoke flowers and lemongrass; bubblegum, clove and anise (?) complicate the experience in a good way, with each sip invoking consideration; fruits like pear and apple arrive late in a loaded plate ...OVERALL: this was the beer I took to the 2003 trip to OBX, and all as well until I found a claw (!) in a bottle; still, a fantastic beer for the summer--and, not bad in the months leading up to the spring...

Pours a pale amber body with a medium head. Faint aroma of dough. Malty taste with sugar tones. More like an ordinary belgian ale than a saison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
