Bottle. Big cork pop. Giant delicate head. Dark gold. Aroma rushes from the bottle. Notes of melon, grapefruit and hops. Weird flavour mix. Like a Belgian pineapple IPA. Grapefruit finish. Not as funky but a mouthful of flavour. Depth and funkiness increase through the bottle.

GJF (1468) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - APR 24, 2008
On draft in the taproom. Pours a murky light yellow with a big white head. This is a solid saison, with a delicate spiciness to it. Slightly thin but good.

BREWMUSKCLES (2514) - New Jersey, USA - APR 24, 2008
typical, but muted belgian type aroma spiced as a familiar to the style would expect.this beer becomes more fragrant when seen. beautiful looking brew, hazy yellow with a high rising but thinnish head. colors like a lemon meringue pie. first taste says oh well there it is. a few minutes left to breathe reveals a complex yeasty brew with a combination of mildly sweet fruits and in there a malty vegetable hint that is marvelously balanced and simply delightful. smooth and satisfyingly carbonated with fine palate, all that and a bitter and hoppy foamy head added in for the clincher......do not miss.

Pour what thin yellow, with heavy protein binding. Nose was a musky lemon with some noble hops and urine. Flavour mimiced with a bit of citric sourness. Finish was slightly astringent. Above all this beer was foamy and way overcarbonated.

jazz88 (2646) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 17, 2008
Bottle. A hazy orange yellow color with a foamy white head. A yeasty light fruit and spiced aroma. Dusty and dry on the palate with a lovely light citrus fruit flavor. It finishes well. I would buy this again.

Bottle shared at tasting. Thanks!
Pours a bright golden orange color with a lasting whitish head that left nice lacing. Smell is sweet, floral, and dusty dandelions. Taste is sweet, faintly tart, delicate and floral. Light funky tartness to it gives it some depth and along with the fizzy light body it is quite easy to drink. Nice.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 9, 2008
Bottle. Light sour nose, good funk. Very cloudy with a thick white head. Heavy sourness, light spice. Great flavor, good palate.

Big, persistent head. Yeasty and bready with alot of spice, but not overpowering. A bit lemony. Quite nice.
