Bottle from Mari’s. Pours hazy orange with a nice sized white head, tons of lacing. The aroma is fairly funky with some floral notes.. minor lemon zest. The taste is sweet orange with a lightly bitter finish.. a somewhat overcarbonated finish.

2012 bottle from some store in Mayfield Heights, OH. Hazy golden orange with lasting head and lace. Mild funky fruity pineapple citrus spicy hop aroma. Mild fruity pineapple sweetness with medium bitter fruity very dry lightly tart spicy hop finish. Nice effervescent carbo makes for medium light refreshing body, accents the green flavor (aroma) of the hops. I love this shit. Excellent.

22oz bottle from Kentucky. Hazy rusty copper with a dense, off white head. Aroma of musty earth, lemon, hay and bread dough.

Nice, bright, refreshing beer with lots of flavors that all come together nicely.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2012 vintage served in a Duvel tulip. Pours a hazy orange yellow with 2 fingers of foamy white head and decent lacing. Aroma is soapy. Lemon, orange, and coriander. Taste is somewhat funky up front. There is lemon, ginger, coriander, orange, and mild barnyard flavors. There is a bitterness in the back that is almost IPA like. Mouthfeel is thin and easy to drink. Overall this is a good summer session beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bomber, $4.99 at Binny’s, June ’12. Pours a hazy honey color in my smallish goblet. Foams mostly coagulates around the edges. Quite a strong smell of alcohol considering its "basic" abv. Malty farmhouse taste is wrapped in hop bitterness, I think there’s some fresh hops involved, too. Should very much be in the saison wheelhouse. Claims of funk may be overstated, but there some nice spiciness from yeast and warm ferment. No reason not to like.

Top pops and head pours everywhere. Once it resides, you have a golden saison with serious farmhouse funk. Light mouthfeel with some slight hops and heavy yeast. Pretty good, not great.

Pours a deep gold with a moderate white head. Floral hop aroma. Slight malty flavor that blends well with the spice and grapefruit hop flavor. Some carbonation in the mouthfeel. Very pleasant little beer.

Bottle. More IPAish than Belgian, which makes me like it more. Slight hoppiness to the nose and taste, though it’s balanced somewhat with a hint of sweetness. Not bad.
