On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a white head. Aroma of yeast, grainy/rice malt, and spices. Flavor of yeast, bready malt, lots of spices (pepper) in the background, some tangy citrus. A good, spicy saison. 7/4/8/4/14 [3.7/5]

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.

@ 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.

The beer pours a cloudy orange with a nice white head, good retention and lacing. The aroma is light, a little more citrus than you would expect in a saison, with a little wheat, and a slight bitter finish. The server described as super sweet, it was sweet for a saison but not super sweet, nor do I think its a traditional saison. The taste is also pretty light starting off with some citrus, then finishes with a slight sour bitter finish. Decent feel, nice carbonation and a fine dry finish. Overall, pretty good, a sweeter take on a saison.

Draft at Revolution. Pours a glowing, slightly hazy gold with fluffy offwhite head. Nose is nice, though a touch of cloves is not quite right. Fresh hops jump out, as well as citrusy and spicy notes. On taste, it is full flavored and full bodied with notes of the spicy hops shooting through with a quenching bitterness. Finishes dry. Damn fine saison, this one.

Bottle from a trade with Pawola22. Pours hazy pale orange color with white head. Grassy and earthy aromas with doughy yeast and spices. Doughy and spicy flavor with some grassy hops and some other spices. Medium body with lively carbonation. Thanks Brian.

tmoreau (3410) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2012
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.

Pours clear golden with low white head. Aroma of honey, wheat, citrus. Taste is rich honey sweet. Light, smooth body.

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.
