While hunting in the lands of CHaos, Orion was blinded by an angry father. He was forced to travel through the dark wilderness in search of the Sun to restore his sight. Orion was very thirsty and wanted a delicious Belgian-style ale brewed with rye. Orion may have been a myth, but our Orion is real. Pour gently to avoid rousing the yeast of this living ale. Best enjoyed with friends and nymphs from a tulip glass or chalice.

Draft at tasty’s beverage. Pours the color of egg yellows with a small white head that leaves very little lacing. Not much on the nose. Slight farmhouse funk on the tongue. Clean finish. Not the best effort from Olde Hickory.

golden colour, no head. Yeasty aroma, some clove. Almost not carbonated. Flat with some burn and yeast. Not good at all and the 2nd Olde Hickory bottle I bought that was under carbonated

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange-gold color with almost zero head. Very sour and citrusy in the smell. Not nearly as much flavor as the nose would intimate. Slightly sour and feels gritty.

So, this will be the second bottle of uncarbonated saison from OH I have had. So these notes are based on a still beer: Soft hazy golden amber, visible body more than expected given style. No head or carbonation. Nose is fruity, banana and spicy phenolics. Lightly tart, lots of bready notes. Lots of vegetal and off notes. Not enjoying this one. Need to figure this bottle conditioning thing out....
