mcmisko (352) - New York, USA - JAN 23, 2012
Smells like fresh grass and flowers, lots of them being tossed in the air. Makes me think of spring time (which was fun because I was enjoying this in the cold of winter). The color is golden. Taste of flowers, pink roses, and a little honey. Delicate texture and lingers nicely on the palate. This is a very interesting style, and I enjoyed it very much. I would love to have this in the spring with a nice salad.

Westmeister (1754) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a smallish head and splattered lacing. Smell is initially sweet with honey and floral. Taste is quite sweet of more honey and though I have never had actually flower water before I imagine it tasting much like this. Although good and refreshing a lot of my favorite qualities of a Saison are ate up by the sweet floral notes.

highoctane (13) - Oxford, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2011
Cloudy, yellow - orange, heavily carbonated with a thick and lasting lacing. Lemon, sour, and sourdough on the nose. All three of those come through in the taste along with a touch too much alcohol. The alcohol and the sourness separate and create two distinct tastes that do not play nice with each other in my opinion. A good beer but in small amounts. Not something I wanted more than a glass of at a time.

Bottle. Hazy golden orange, with white head. Bread, banana esters, sweet flowers, light fruit, perfume, and hay. A nice beer, pretty interesting.

biggirlpanties (181) - Carlsbad, California, USA - DEC 9, 2011
The pour is a crisp golden amber. Large white head, good lacing. Aroma is soft florals, some apple cinnamon. The taste is some of that same cinnamon with a bit of citrus and some bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is just great. Full and rich, but not at all sticky. It tastes like autumn, if that makes sense. It’s a subtle beer, great to spend some time with.

adnielsen (9108) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Bottle @ home. Golden yellow-orange appearance with a big pearl white head. Rose floral, a touch spicy hoppy, citrusy aroma. Floral, tangy citrusy, lightly tart, light barnyard, Belgian yeasty flavor. Tangy aftertaste.

arminjewell (6177) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Pour is hazy yellowish orange with white head, aroma is very floral, with hints of some spices as well, mint, some slight biscuit, some honey, as well as a touch of tart lemon in there. Taste is nice and complex, notes of a mix of flowers that is pretty tough to describe but borders on a bit much, hints of slight spice, biscuit, some honey and lemon notes, finishing fairly dry and slightly tart.
