22 oz. bomber, $10 at Square One, Chicago’s near South.Poured into a tall flute, it shows off a light amber or slightly orange body with thing layer of foam atop. Has a big malty smell with warming spices that I’m picking up at arm’s length while still wrestling with the menu. Taste is big malts with the expected esters of a warm ferment, The hop bitterness just slightly curls the edge of my tongue, and a note of fruit and funk thread through as well. There’s a yeasty outline in the taste too, even before I swirl in the yeast dregs form the bottom of the bottle.

@ 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.

[Tap] Pours a bright orange color with a light amount of haze to it. A small head of white foam on top. Aromas of perfume, floral hops and a dried grass note. Lively carbontion and nice lacing. Flavors of grains, green apple, tart citrus, acetic notes, grass and hints of black pepper. Dry and herbal finish with a pretty heavy body for a Saison. Tasting notes from 10/2014.

Flattish amber golden pour. Smell is appa joose, candy sweetness, some banana, and black pepper. Taste is too sweet and malty with some more appa joose. Fair to not good.

Had this at their place in Chicago. All the beer unless noted otherwise were good to very good. Unfortunately this was rated with another program and I can't import my comments.

Sampled at the Midwest Belgian Beer Fest. Lemon, spicy, malty flavors. Very nice saison. This was my favorite beer at the Midwest Belgian Beer Fest.

The beer has a really nice golden hue with some haziness to it, well carbonated and has minimal lacing. The smell has some great floral notes, some decent spiciness with a hint or citrus/orange. The decent is really well balanced, minmial spice and mild sweetness and holds on really well. The mouthfeel afterwards mildly lingers with some mild bitterness and sweetness. Overall, this is really well balance of floral, sweetness, cirtus, spice, and tips the scales between a saison and potentially a triple.

Tasted on draft at Revolution. Pours cloudy orange with a thick white head. SLightly nutty and sweet aroma with a hint of lemongrass. On the front of the palate there is a hint of citrus hops with a nice sweet roundness. There is also lemongrass with a yeasty finish. The carbonation is very lively with both a medium body and finish. Overall, this beer is great with food, but it is lacking a bit in the complexity department.

Hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet fruits, spicy hops and yeast, earthy,lemon zest. Medium body. Flavor has an initial sweetness that dissolves into a nice zesty, spicy, earthy tone. Very enjoyable saison.
