Yellow-gold with good, creamy & foamy white head / Fruity nose of tropical & orchard fruit, coconut, and malolactic fermentation / Medium to full body, fruity, sweet with a lot of dry, oak astringency? in the middle, good balance and lightly bitter finish / Flavors of pineapple, apple, pear, peach, clove, ginger, and oak / A little bigger and sweeter than I would prefer, but very well done. The description comment about pairing with French cheese is right on.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared with my in-laws. Hazy orange-tinted gold. Very doughy yeasty aroma, some brothy character like cooked noodles, lightly cheesy. Doughy, yeasty body of flavours, brightened by some orange and spice. Intriguing to me, but not a favourite.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange peel nose with tart hits and some alcohol notes and typical yeast farmhouse scent. Clean in the mouth with slight orange notes and dry finish. Alcohol warmth follows. Very slight caramel notes in nose and taste as it warms. Great linger of dry and crisp.

I like it real good. There’s a hint of spice to it that one doesn’t quite grasp... I guess it’s from the bergamot. Medium bodied, this beer is refreshing but packs an alcoholic punch.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 ounce bottle into a brandy snifter. Pours a bright hazy orange with a thin white head of foam. The aroma is lightly herbal with a big orange peel character. The orange peel reminds me of dreamsicle. In the taste, the orange comes through like juicy rind. Pretty nice.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice golden color with a thick white head. Head dissipates rather quickly. Slight orange scent on the nose. Not too much going on taste wise. There is a hint of orange but other than that its a basic saison flavor. Its an enjoyable beer, just nothing spectacular.
