Very pale color and quite bubbly. This is a pretty plain beer - not complex enough, IMO, to be a saison. Slightly spicy and very drinkable. Surprisingly strong.

2007: Clear light golden color. Slight haze. Pillowy white head. Some small bubbles of carbonation. Looks light.
Very pleasant fruity wheat smell, but not a Belgian. Well a little Belgian. Some banana and orange but not sour-smellng. More fruity than wheaty.
Slightly sour taste but mostly pleasant orange ale. Corander and a hint of spice. Like a very very mild Belgian ale. Sour aftertaste, but mild.
Very light, but dry. A little bubbly. Medium body. Itís a nice sour summery drink. Mild Belgian flavor. Sweet, but in a good way.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear, yellow, short white head that quickly subsides to a few bubbles listing on the surface. The smell is peppery and spicy, and maybe a little floral. The taste is also spicy with some lemon zest for good measure, very nice. The carbonation is a little prickly on my tongue and I like it. This is an excellent beer for a hot summerís day. The drinkability is really good on this one. This would be an awesome candidate for a sixer. This is an excellent saison in my opinion.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A lightly hazed golden ale with a thick creamy white head. A lightly herbal malt, wild herbs, bit of boiled vegetables. In mouth, more of a wheat beer with light cloves, bubblegum, nice and refreshing. Medium bodied. A summer beer for sure. Tasted around Jan 2007.

Nose is light fruits. Golden amber with a light head. Thick and syrupy in the way gnatly wine was. Flavor is fruits, malt, bitter, spice.

Bottle sampled. Pours hazy copper with a small white head. Aroma of belgian spices, biscuit, and sweet malts. Flavor alcohol is well masked, spices, biscuit, slightly sweet, and citrus. Decent body, ok brew.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
22 oz Bottle as #10. Slightly hazy orange body with a white head. Aroma has a light impression of cooked cabbage and hops. Flavor is malty, hoppy and a metallic harsh finish. Maybe something is wrong with this bottle, otherwise itís just another sample of a plain beer with just a bunch of hops added to it. Not in balance at all, big disappointment.
