Pours a big fizzy over a golden beer. Huge yeasty musty aroma that reminds me of Vieuve Cliquot. Sharp and citrusy - lemon and a little grapefruit. Clean finish, lacks some complexity.

Bottle.16.9 oz. Pours a hazy yellow with an incredible head. Highly carbonated. Citrus and bread on the nose. Flavors are earthy, yeasty and spicy with a sour citric finish. The beer is thin but quite flavorful. I ended up enjoying this one by the end of the bottle as it warmed. Tasted great with a cheese platter I was enjoying at the time. Expensive. Purchased at Whole Foods for $8.99.

Hazy blond color; big creamy head. Some aroma of coriander and oranges. Good mouthfeel, dry malt flavor, sweet, spicy, with a dynamic orange touch. Very good (a sweeter and fruiter Saison).

Muddy golden color. Strange aroma, flowery. Very dry malty taste, some fruitness and resins maybe from the hops, high bitterness with orange peel. Drinkable and refreshing, but quite odd.

Bottle. Unclear yellow colour with a weak head. Aroma of spices, yeast and malt. Sour flavour of yeast, spice and wheat, nice but nothing overwelming.

An unclear orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with quite a lot of hops, as well as a good fruit presence. The flavor is very fruity with notes of mango, oranges, peaches, on a sweet background that also includes notes of caramel. The end is dry and bitter with a slight dusty touch.

Wife picked this one up for me, I’d never seen it prior to now. Didn’t smell like much, looked pretty much like a regular beer, just with a huge, pure white head. It was tasty though, refreshing even. Went down easy. Pretty good tailgating beer maybe. Would have had a higher rating if not for aroma I suppose, but mine was right in line with the average for the site.

Great for an american saison. Dry, yeasty, flowery, with the expected pin prick carbonation and tartness of a lighter saison. Also a bit hoppier than I would typically expect from the style.
Poured a hazey golden with a large pillowy head. Actually seemed to get better as it warmed, and at six bucks a bottle, one I would certainly drink again.

Faint fruity saison aroma. Cloudy orange-yellow appearance with a full head. This is really an excellent Begian beer, a fine saison. Definitely could have this again and again.
