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.

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. I’d rather drink boxer lager

Dark gold color. A smell of belgiany yeast. Served at 60 degrees, I can appreciate the beer but the Belgian smell is a little too much for me. It’s a simple beer that may need a little more temperature control.

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

Bottle. Very zesty, with lots of citrus flavor, but felt fizzy and unsubstantial. Good on flavor, but lacks body.

Boothead (26) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Sharp aroma typical of Saison. Nothing special about the appearance but slightly darker for this style of beer. The rye flavor is neither overwhelming or unpleasant. Clean finish!

This beer has so many tastes coming at you. Some of them dont seem to mix with each other. But pretty good on a hot day like today.

nr706 (11) - Evanston, Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Bottle into a 16 oz. snifter. Pours copper/orange with frothy head that dissipates somewhat quickly. Earthy, saison-appropriate aroma with hints of citrus. Medium-full body with some bitterness lingering.

Light amber color with a slight citrus flavor. Very tasty. I would recommend this. Mmm.

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.
