03.29.06 750ml bottle. Pale golden with medium but quick white head of large bubbles. Aroma is citrusy wheat with some weediness, little funk, rusty apples and pears. Flavor is a slow starter - up front itís dry and tart and a bit on the sweet side, fruitier than expected, but as it lingers on the palate, the flavor explodes. Emerging spices are carried by simultaneously emerging eff as the palateís warmth releases the beauty of this beer, fruits, light honey, floral yeastiness, and mild grasses. The flavor onslaught quickly yields to a quick dry finish. Itís a beer of transistions, which, I suppose, might be construed as complexity - maybe not. I think itís worth socking a few of these away.

Decent sized, bright white head of fine bubbles. Good carbonation. Fruity and grassy aroma. Little bit of spices, pepper and lemon. Hazy bright golden orange. Fruity, grassy and a little spicey. Even a hint of smoke in there. Dry with a little tartness. Like biting into a very tart granny smith apple. Something is a little different in there. A little shaper and rougher than many saisons. Finish a tart again with some more apples. A decent saison but a little rough around the edges.

Bottle. Pours gold, with a white head. Aromas are spice, yeast, citrus, with bits of wheat and grass. Flavors are citrus, spice, yeast, malt, hops and yeast. Medium body, and a nice sweetish finish, that eventually turns a little dry. Very nice.

thanks to weeare138 for this big bottle tat was corked and caged. poured a golden color with a big fluffy white head that took forever to go down and left a lot of lacing. aroma big citrus nose with pepper and yeast, orange, musty. flavor a nice orange and lemon yeast and a nice bite of hops. I think this my 5th saison and it is the best I have had. I not a big fan of this style but I think this one is changing the taste buds

Tap at Royal. Wrong taphandle, says its royal weisse, says saison on the menu. Color is translucent orange gold, though, so itís saison, and itís got a low retention eggshell head. Lightly hoppy, yeasty, lemon wheat aroma. Malty and lemony in flavor, nice ssession strength and balanc, with bitter lemon hop finish. As flavorful as some triples (I wrote that when I thought it was a wheat and I was suprised). Bubblegummy. Fairly nice, probably the best beer I had at Royal last night.

White pepper and orange blossom nose. Coriander, allspice, clove and apricot hints come thru as it warms. Becomes more citric and floral on the palate with jasmine hints. Very clean dry and spicy finish. Bottle
