COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Complex flavors and aromas come from a variety of sources. Barley malt and wheat help create a smooth body and attribute a pleasant golden hue while the addition of malted rye and oats brings out a solid earthy flavor. Czech Saaz Hops help create a citrus nose. What makes this beer truly special is the Saison Ale yeast strain used to ferment this beer. The subtle hints of tangerine, peach and licorice are the hallmarks of this particular yeast.

Light copper with a tiny bit of haze - soapy lace - nose is very sweet, with strong apricot and mango notes, light rye, light starchiness - low carbonation - flavor is quite sweet - moderate apricot, peach, and very lightly musky pineapple - husky rye late - some starchy and doughy yeast - sweet and mildly spicy finish - not much of a saison.

As soon as I smelled it I knew I wasnt going to be something I enjoyed. Unfinishable for me.

mrjaxson (281) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 29, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2013 Lots of different aromas (spruce and pepper) and tastes (bitter and sour) going on here. Nothing overwhelmingly successful, but in MKE you always appreciate the effort!

esoxangler (100) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 28, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2013 For me, undrinkable. Awefully strong malted taste with no freshness from any hops crispness or anything. Just a heavy, malty disgusting beer with that belgian clove and earthy flavor. Id rather drink boxer lager

jmcgavin12 (465) - Madison, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Pours orange with frothy white head. Citrus on the nose with bits of bready yeast and alcohol. The classic smell of a belgian with some tangerine hints as well. Taste is sweet but also astringent with sour and bitter notes. Finishes dry and crisp to make for a delicious beer

ccex (903) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 5, 2013
12 oz bottle pours an almost clear red/amber with moderate white head and some lacing. Aroma has banana, spices, rye, and vanilla. Body is medium with average carbonation and a lively mouthfeel. Easily drinkable with nothing wrong, but far from one of the great saisons.

Lubiere (9752) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2013
A golden saison with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with peaches, light woody terpentines. In mouth, a smooth sweet saison with orange notes, ginger, decent. On tap at Istmus Beer and Cheese Fest, Jan 19 2012.

ads135 (2814) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - JAN 23, 2013
This is a nice saison; above average. It has a nice peppery nose and a citrus and spice flavor. Cloudy yellow appearance with super carbonation. Got this from Josh N. after the winter beer tasting. 2012.

Bottle. This is a beer I would give to someone new to craft beers. Very smooth but also complex. Orange comes through both in color and taste. I would love to try this again.
