3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A hazy orange beer with an orange head. The aroma is sweet and very flowery as well as spicy. The flavor is very flowery and fruity - I pick up mango, but other exotic fruits hide in the background. The alcohol gives the tongue a slight burn.

Bottled, thanks Dr.Bill! Bronze colour, fluffy head. Apricot and farmyard aroma. Candy and dense malt. Lightly fruity and citric with rounded, lively mouthfeel. A fantastic, Fantôme-style saison.

Bottle. Quite clear, dark golden colour. Hop aromatic. Flavour has some yoghurt, and a little metal. Otherwise malty and fruity.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy golden amber. Very spicy aroma - slightly hot, flowery with dusty yeast and breadcrusty malt notes in the background. Flavor has an anise accent, firm breadcrusty maltiness whole grain style and a hint of nutmeg, clove. Fresh, vibrant with bracing spices, this is a pretty damn good saison.

(750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy burnt orange body with a large off-white head. Aroma of orange peel, florals, citrus, and notes of mustiness. Falvor of pumpkin spice, ginger, corriander, black pepper, and orange peel. Another enjoyable beer from Pizza Port!

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden. Strong spicy aroma -- coriander, orange, banana, ginger. Flavor is really spicy too -- sweet, tangy, slightly lemony, coriander, peppery. Alcohol is slightly noticeable in the aftertaste. This one is really complex, and I could never imagine drinking more than one of these at a time.

Gingery orange accents. Tingly, perhaps from the white pepper. These folks rank right in with the ones from Chambly. Goes well with a good book.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a goldenrod sort of color with a large white head that displays some pretty good retention.
S: The nose offers up some good spice notes/yeast esters along with bready malts and a moderate sweetness. The citrus notes are pretty much gone on this one, but there is a hint of lemon and lemon zest.
T: A fair amount of spice notes opens up the palate: pepper, ginger, and citrus rind. Mildly sweet and bready malts round things out.
M: The body is medium with a lively carbonation to it and a really long finish.
D: This beer does show some signs of decay, but it has actually held up quite well. That said, I wouldn’t necessarily advise hanging on to this much longer.
