Bottle provided by argo0. Thanks! Poured a slightly cloudy orange color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was a touch of spice with some sweet malts. Spice notes with a touch of yeast notes in this one too.

Huhzubendah (2495) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Thanks to argo0 for sharing. The beer is orange with a small white head. The aroma offers citrus with dank hops and some malt. A bit sharp on the palate. Hoppy and bitter with forward alcohol. Oranges soaked in booze. This was pretty good.

Travlr (10342) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle courtesy of argo0, thank you sir! Cloudy golden orange color, small bright white head. Nice aroma of spiced raw rye bread dough and dusty straw. Taste is not quite as good as the nose, with an odd mixture of slightly sour and spiced straw.

MaBeer1972 (1278) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 10, 2012
22 oz bottle from Julios. Rated from bottom of bottle. Pours out a cloudy light orange color with big frothy off white head that settles into a thick lace. Strong floral aromas. Flavor is spicy and citrusy with some floral bitterness in between. The juniper is overwhelming after a while though.

Beerathon (1131) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2012
This is a bit of a spicy saison with a fantastic hop balance. Tingly on the tongue, yellowish gold in color, whispy white head with surprising lacing. Very enjoyable.

Pours gold into a tulip. Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Tropical fruit and pumpernickel aromas. Dry with sweet marshmallow and caramel upfront turning to peppery rye in the lasting bitter finish.
