An homage to the monk’s noble work, this unique farmhouse ale is incredibly complex with notes of lemon, pepper, straw and herbs balanced by the tang of Mandarin oranges and a spicy kick of pepper. The Mandarin oranges used to make this beer were locally grown, including a portion grown on the grounds of the Abbey of New Clairvaux and picked by hand by the community of monks living there. We hope you enjoy this collaboration ale.

Not a huge or typical saison. There’s a noticeable fruity character that is typical of a hop profile, only that it doesn’t finish with an especially strong hop bite or bitterness. Some spice in my tasting. The mandarin isn’t really there, and the orange is somewhat marginal. (on tap, Church Key, Washington DC)

300 cL bottle from Capone’s. Pours hazy orangy copper with 3-finger off-white head and spare lace. Nose is resiny hops, yeasty malt, orange zest, black and white peppercorns. Tastes of yeasty malt, orange zest, bready, and peppery. The finish has a bit of an odd flavor note, so that is a minor deduction. Overall good but not great, as the ingredients don;t seem to meld well together.

Bottle (375 ml). From dresden, thanks! Slightly hazy golden/orange with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma is floral with citrus (mandarin Orange), peppery notes and Saison yeast. Unique and interesting. Taste is slightly sweet with pepper, yeast, floral notes, citrus and malt. It doesn’t get together as much as aroma. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly dry. Original take on a Saison. Quite complex, but lacking drinkability/quenching qualities for the style.

Pours a clear copper color with an eggshell head. Aroma is banana, clove and a touch of citrus. Taste is sweet with the peppercorns adding a great, spicy kick going on with the clove and banana. Sweet with a medium mouthfeel. Good beer, but definitely not a traditional saison.

Pour out of 375 mL bottle, clear dark orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of orange, sweet fruit, lots of pepper, hints of white fruit, more spice, caramel, biscuit, slight grass. Taste is a mix of sweet orange, slight lemon, hints of caramel, toffee, touch of earth, lots of pepper in there as well, finishing with some herbal notes as well. Not bad, a bit heavy on the orange.

On tap at the brewery/restaurant. I really enjoyed this beer. Lots of spice and the mandarin was moderate and played nicely. I did not get much from the peppers here, but still highly enjoyable.

Bottle purchased at jubilation in albuquerque nm. Pours hasy orange with a small fizzy white head. Nose is spicy pepper oranges lite husky notes some lite hops. Some astringent peppery notes come I about mid palate. body is lite crisp and somewhat watery. Long peppery finish that lasts long into the sip. A very nice beer I like it however its not overly complex and interesting. Glad I found it though.
