3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at rev... Pours a seemingly glowing tangerine orange with a quickly fading frothy white head... Assertive aroma of bright citrus notes, tangerine, and a touch of yeast... Flavors maintain that citrus profile which quickly develops into more of a hoppy earthy drying bitterness with some pepper in the finish. Outside of some prickly pepper, not much else in terms of spice. Carbonation pretty lively which seems to be a common trend... Not bad at all.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy, brighter orange colored body with an inch thick, dense and creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is pretty fruity with some juicy citrus tangerines, pears, sweeter florals, soft spices, yeasty earth, a light banana, and some sweeter malts with a light caramel and grain. Flavor is similar. Lots of juicy fruits up front with a good amount of sweet tangerines, oranges, pears, melons, and floral fruits. Nice yeasty spice and earth to balance along with a light grass, some banana, and a touch of bubblegum. Some grainy, medium sweet malts add to a rounded balance. Finishes dry and fruity with a nice spicing and light-medium bitterness. Lengthy, spicy and citrusy aftertaste following a medium body and fairly lively carbonation that works well with the juicy fruits and spices. Overall, a nice saison. Dry and balanced with a pretty cool juicy fruitiness. Nice malt sweetness to round things out making this very enjoyable. Good beer.

Draft at Mikkeller Bar. Hazy golden, small white head. Spicy, fruity aroma with notes of hay, herbs, yeasty phenols and noble hops. Medium sweet malty, slightly astringent, peppery with a dry, medium bitter slightly metallic finish. Nice.

Sampled at the brewpub. It poured a clear orange color with a white head. The aroma was of hops and yeast with a medium body and a slick texture with flat carbonation. The taste was bittersweet with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Nice.

On cask at GTMW - Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Light spice on the nose, with some funk and a bit of fruit, most notably apricot. Taste is light fruit, yeasty goodness, and a light malt base. Smooth and well-carbonated.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer is fairly hazy,appearing copper to orange hued with an off-white head. The aroma offers malt, sweet and sour apples, green, earth. Earth and mineral water character. Perhaps a mild tartness. Medium bodied, finishing dry with a hint of spice. Overall, this was okay.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Bavarian Lodge in Lisle, IL., and served to house stemware showing a hazed, orangy gold color, modest, soft white head foam that reduced quickly to a ring & film, and left some light, wavy lacing on the glass. The nose was light yeast, mid-fruit as apricot/peach, citrus as orange, and light spiciness. The flavor presented soft malt, some alcohol warmth, a moderate, lingering hop bitterness, with earthy & peppery notes. The body was medium, with good effervescence, and pleasant dryness complemented the bitter finish. Spot on style interpretation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
@ Hyde Park Wine and Spirits / Cincinnati OH --- Cloudy light amber with a big 3" head that is slow to drop, bands of lace. Taste is a combination of sweet malt and floral hops. In the palate, a slight sour/sulfur taste is added to give it a distinctive European flavor. A full-bodied, but not heavy, brew that is a pleasure to drink.
