3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2004 Deep brown with a creamy beige head. Nice fruit on the nose. perhaps prune? Big mouthfeel, but cloyingly sweet. Hard to drink more than a half a glass as the beer becomes very heavy and sweet. Nice fruity undertones with some chocolate

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 This pours a hazy golden hue with a frothy head that lingers for the length of the drink. Floral and citric hops, in that order, come through in the aroma. Fruity taste with a definite alcohol presence. Has a bitter, winey finish. Not a bad experience.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy copper-orange color with a fluffy white head. Flowery, citrusy, yeasty nose. Refreshing, spritzy mouthfeel. Flavors of lemon, orange, yeast rolls and green apple meld together admirably. Finishes with a bit of a hoppy blast along with a dry tartness. Improves greatly as the bottle warms into the 60 degree range as the nose, flavors and alcohol really intensify.

Orange Coloring. Small White Head. Flowery in Aroma. Yeast, Spice..Very Sweet. Good Bite from Alcohol.. Possibly Some Apple in There as Well. Most Unique Saison I’ve Tried So Far but Very Very Enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden color with a nice, frothy, white head. Kind of a dusty, and spicy nose, yet a little sweet. Very similar taste with apple and hops prevailing. A tad on the tart side. Not like any saison I’ve had, and I like it!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Muddy orange beer with a foamy white head. Heavy yeasty and fruity aroma with sweet toffee tones. Very full and rather harsh in the flavor. Sharp fruity, hoppy and Ommegang yeasty with notes of turf. Quite different.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2004 Very light golden brew.Little layer of white foam.Has a little sourness to it and lots of wheat and yeast.Sounds dumb but tastes like you would expect after getting a whiff .It is really a light and thin brew which I find to be nice on a hot day.Almost takes on a spiced cider flavor for a finish,quite nice.I came back to this after a while and it had warmed up a bit.Completely blew me away.The spicey fruit flavor had intensified along with the alcohol.Very nice.

An enjoyable saison, a style that I am recently starting to enjoy and getting to know intimately. The cork flew across the room and bounced off the ceiling. Slight head, sweet fruity flavor. Very easy to drink.
