3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2013 A- pours a clear, luscious warm orange copper with a faint off white head that does not linger. S- aromas a rich Belgium yeast and caramel malts with bubble gum, fennel, a peppery sting and candied orange. Some notes of citrus in the back of the nose and faint honey. M- a little syrupy and viscous body but palate is relatively mild. Carbonation is not overpowering. T- starts off with some bubble gum, resin and malts that mingle with hay, cloves and orange. A smidgin of bread and honey in the middle. Ending is a nice efficient caramel malt to refreshing citrus. The pepper lingers a little bit.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep copper color with a finger of eggshell foam. The nose is a bit harsh with spicy yeast phenols, caramel malt, some background candied orange. The palate is much lighter than the appearance and nose would leave me to believe. Nice citrus punch balanced by spicy peppercorns that slowly roll into the finish. Bright crisp mouthfeel with enough background grainy maltiness to keep it from getting overdone. Wish it was more readily available in Maine as I hear we only got like 9 cases to go around.

Light hazy orange color with medium fluffy off-white head. Aroma is strong, very floral. Flavor is great- nice mix of sweet citrus fruits and spices with a smooth, creamy malt finish. Unique and very good.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange pour with fast disapating white head. Citrus, bread, with a fair amount of pepper taste. Found to be somewhat dry. I guess just not my thing. Glad I tried it though

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2013 375 ml bottle- Pours a very dark hazy orange with an off white head that reduces to a collar too quickly. Aroma is Belgian yeast, mandarin orange rind, pepper, fresh smelling. The taste is a nice Belgian style saison with an orange taste in the background, not getting as much pepper as I would like, yeasty and mildly tangy. Body is medium and carbonation is prickly but not too high. Good beer, easily drink a four pack of this.

Small corked bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrus and oranges, spicy yeast, caramel malts, some light pepper, and floral hops. Flavor the same with a nice orange note. Average texture. A pretty good saison.
