(draught) glowing bright orange, ring of soapy bubbles, great lacing. Nose of peppercorn, light funk, woody and lightly tart, ginger, bit of orange peel and mushroom/earth. Smells so incredible. Belgian and funky. Taste of earth, light funk, orange peel, ginger, peppercorn, crisp citrus, Belgian yeast, complex and HIGHLY drinkable. This is simply astounding. Maybe the best summer beer in Texas and almost anywhere. Perfect carbonation, light, crisp and refreshing. I haven’t Had a low abv beer this good in a VERY long time.

Pours hazy orange with a small white-ish head. Smells bready, spicy, and yeasty. Taste is spicy and of yeasty bread. Light-medium bodied with a smooth texture and light fizzy mouth-carbonation, Southern Star Walloon finishes with some bread dryness.

Very excited to try this, nice to see a brewer try to recreate a lost style .. . Its kinda like a witbier and saison had babybier and it produced Walloon .. . Pours a mango pear tan, foam everywhere, great lacing .. . light fruit, wheat, rye, and hay- very refreshing stuff and a really good full mouthfeel .. . a winner, a great session brew i could suck down all evening .. . lisa refuses to play dodgeball because she is sad..

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - JUN 7, 2011
On tap - Meddlesome Moth. Cloudy orange brew with a fluffy white head. Smells great - loks of barnyard funk with some citrus and spice. Incredibly crisp and drinkable with flavors of spice, citrus, and Belgian yeast. Perfect amount of funk in the nose and taste. An amazing summer seasonal, perfect for hot ass Texas weather. Hope this gets canned!

Hard to to rate to style on this one. I found lots of spice on the back of the throat and a pleasing finish.

mcox90 (1529) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 20, 2012
12 oz can, poured into a Trappist glass. Pours a clear amber/orange with a one finger off white head. Spicey aroma with clove and coriander being predominate. Some yeast scent too. Light fruit, spice and yeast in the flavor. Dry palate. Light and easy to drink, but with a lot of character. Really enjoyed it. Thanks to Summer Secret Santa for this little gem.

Mora2000 (5568) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2011
The beer pours a cloudy orange color with a white head. The aroma is a mix of some farmhouse funk as well as some orange citrus and wheat notes. Very inviting. The flavor is more of the same. I get some hay, grass and grain notes as well as some orange citrus and other tropical fruit notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very easy to drink and very refreshing.

Tap at Petrol Station Houston TX. Hazy yellow and no head. Nose is lemon and pepper. Taste very much like a hefeweizen with some slight pepper notes but not the banana. No saison funk. Light and very easy to drink. Good carbonation. Great summer beer-they need to can this one.
