750 courtesy of my Secret Santa - Thanks! Murky yellow, fragile white head. Smells great - lots of tropical flavors, with some sweet, funky notes. Very refreshing. I get a lot of citrus and tropical fruit flavors, too. Crisp, funky, tangy finish.

Pretty awesome, I cracked this at Mikey’s gathering with the warning that it explodes in my mind. The cork just edged up after I took off the cage and then BOOM and nice explosion. Didn’t lose much beer. A huge white foamy head. A sour bug Brett nose and some light fruit. The flavor is very fruit, dusty grapes, big Brett, light sourness more funky. Lemons. Good.

On tap at Kickbacks, pours a clear gold with a white head, the aroma has a little bit of fruit mixed in with some funk and barnyard notes, the flavor has a pretty fruity front end with some must and dirt in the finish, good, just nothing jumps out and says amazing, I’d drink again if offered.

deyholla (6633) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours a near clear pale dandelion with a bubbly white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a nice light bitter/tart citrus note with a dry grape note and a bit of light spice. Flavor has a nice combination of citrus and dry grapes with a nice light spice and yeast note to round out the beer.

brokensail (10914) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Hazy pale straw pour with a white head. The nose is quite floral and fruity. Citrus zest, lots of lemon, white grapes, and some tropical fruit. A bit of sweet bread, some cracker, and a touch of grass and spice. The flavor is sweet up front with some grape, bread, and tropical fruit. Light grassiness, floral hops, citrus zest, and a hint of lemon tartness.

JDBaker11058 (1269) - Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2013
Appearance: beautiful coppery orange, with an aggressive, foamy bone white head that lasts forever, leaving rich lacing. Aroma: warm orange muffins, with full yeasty spices, with some uncooked pie crust and lemon zest . Taste: white wine, apple skin, green tea, raisins, peppercorns, some yeast and citrus zest; minerality is prominent. Finish: very dry and tart, with some lingering citrus. Notes: Didn’t particularly care for this one. Very pretty and nice to smell, but the flavors didn’t work for me. The beer seemed heavier than it should have been, based upon the aroma and flavors. The full mineral-water character and dry finish were not complimentary. I love a good saison, but I could not love this beer, though I wanted to. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club.
