COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Belgian style Saison (or Farmhouse Ale) brewed with a blend of British Pale and German Pils malt and hopped with East Kent Goldings. Fermented with a special proprietary yeast which imparts its dry, spicy character. Golden orange in color.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2005 Bottled, from the brewer, poured a gold color with a large rocky, white head, left some lacing on the glass. Aroma of tart citrus, yeast, possibly some musty barnyard as well. Taste of orange peel and yeast with a spicy dry finish. Also some citrus (lemon) was noticed in the taste. This was awesome, you REALLY need to try an aged version of this saison, so age those bottles!!

A complex, well balanced saison. Flavors of yeast, coriander, citrus, and wheat. Finished fairly smooth.

I didn’t care for the "strange"spice flavor and also the yeastiness of this beer.

Spicy, not as sweet as others, yeast character a little overpowering

Not really one of my favorite styles but this was a very good example, golden in color, very good head retention, seemed to be very full bodied, very nice saison
