Iets troebele oranjegele kleur met een aardige kraag. Ruikt zoetzuur. Smaakt dun en waterig. Iets zurig. Verder weinig bijzonders

Urzekajace piwo, praktycznie zdumialo mnie. Zaczne od wygladu i to butelki, harakterystyczna szampanowa butelka z cienka szyjka bardzo glebokim wybrzuszeniem na kciuk i kolor taki brazowawo zielonkawy. Piana moze niezbyt obfita i niezbyt trwala ale kolor to wspaniale metne pomaranczowe piwo z refleksami rozowymi. Smak kwaskowaty, troche kakao, przypraw, jakby pieprz, aromat kwaskowy greffrutow rozowych i pelna paleta slodowo kwaskowa. Wytrawny koncowka zdecydowanie wytrawna. Saison rewelacyjny, polecam

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a murky orange-apricot color with a medium sized foamy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tart, chalky, citric, funky and bready. The flavor was very tart and sour, a bit dry and had notes of chalk, yeast and lemon. Medium length dry, tart and sour finish with lingering yeast, chalk and lemon. Medium body. Meh.

Jow (2263) - New York, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Tap at gingerman. Pours orange with very fruity nose. Tastes of green apples, ginger, earth, anise, wet cardboard, and funky. Kinda flat on palate. Drying and odd finish. Overall not really saison like.

NikkTwist (1745) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2014 Oct 2013. Draft at Monks. Hazy orange gold with a large frothy white head. Somewhat off-putting sweet grassy flavor. Moldy apples and peaches. Sour caramel corn. Not working for me at all. UPDATE: Having an aged bottle at Eulogy in March 2014. Big improvement! Lots of carbonation and a large white head. Refined green apple and blood orange flavors. Lemongrass. Rose hips. Honeycomb. Slight peppery finish. The funkyness that put me off last year is still present but now feels less pronounced and more properly balanced. My rating just leaped up from a 2.6 to a 3.9. A quick check of other reviews seems to confirm that the draft sucks and the bottle rules!
