3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery, this pours a bright orange into the glass with a soapy white head that leaves webbed lacing. The nose is of tangerines, barnyard grains, silage and hay. Flavors of orange, tangerine, cracked black pepper, hay and barnyard silage finish with a black pepper spiciness. The mouthfeel is active with a medium body that is perfect for spring or summer weather. The pepper really makes this stand out. Delicious.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a four finger cream head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Almost clear amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Mandarin orange nose and flavor is citrusy orange and lemon with what seems to be Belgian yeast. Mellow for a saison. $3.90 for a caged & corked 375ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, MA.

Aroma of fruit. Some orange, lemongrass, pepper, bread. Flavor starts out dry and finishes sweeter. Some hops noticed. Another good beer from the Ovila line.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear copper / orange with an off-white head. The aroma has lots of cream, caramel, heavy malt and cellar must. Comes off more as a biere de garde on the aroma. It has a medium body that is quite smooth with fairly soft carbonation. The flavor starts with lots of cellar must, cotton candy, light peppercorn, spices and caramel. The finish has much of the same, but a touch of saison earthiness. It still comes off more of a biere de garde than saison to me though. Good, but not what I was expecting.

Orange/copper in color, a bit on the cloudy side. Citrus in aroma and well represented in taste. The slightest hop quality on the back end.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Dexters, porus a clear dark orange with an off white head, the aroma has some funk and yeast at first with a little bit of the orange and fruit coming through, the flavor has a strong spice front end with lots of the peppercorn in the finish, the fruit is kind of dominated, kind of meh for me.
