JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 18, 2003
Murky orange color. No head at all. Aroma is mostly sour almost like vinegar. Little carbonation. Pick up the orange spice I think and the acidity not much else. Acidic finish.

kujo9 (1092) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2003
Light amber/orangish hue w/ off white foamy head; retention could be better. Leathery/wet horse blanket/earthy aromas very apparent. Maltiness is underlying to all other aromas but apparent when the beer warms. Earthines could be from the cork, but not likely, very nice aromatics to this beer. Toasted malty and well balanced w/a little hop flavor and fairly dry finish. subdued fruity character w/a clean toasted malt aftertaste. Higher than average carbonation typical of a Saison and dry M/F w/a medium body. Not my favorite style of beer, but I'd have a few of this beer at a time; Very refreshing and very well balanced.

redlem (1296) - Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2003
Reddish amber color with a medium lively quickly diminishing head. Aroma of oranges, leather, slight detection of oak soaked in whiskey, reminds me of Old Suffolk. A slight musty taste, dry, carbonated. Decent.

(1996 bottle, sampled 6/7/03): Murky orange body with small off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, orange liqueur, pear, yeast, faint licorice and raisin. Taste is vinegar, light sweetness, orange, yeast, pepper. Nice dry finish. Medium body and fairly carbonated (despite being 7 years old).

TheRimmer (483) - Florida, USA - FEB 19, 2003
Orange blossom aroma and finish. The right balance of spice and pepperiness. Extremely cloudy and kind of thick. This was a wonderful experience...especially after 5 vodka tonics and a pork loin. Mmm....pork crotch....

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - APR 8, 2003
Vintage 1996: Pours a cloudy, orange gold color with little particles floating throughout. The aroma is fruity and spicy with a touch of orange, ginger, and yeast. The flavor is very tasrt and slightly sour, with some spice and orange notes and a finish that is tart, sour, and very dry. Very lambic-like and quite interesting, though I suspect it the spices would be more pronounced and the beer would be better fresh.
