3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Hazy amber golden with an off-white head. The nose seems like a coriander hell combined with soapy lavender or something. Medium body, distinct fruity accents while all the perfume from the nose is toned down - thank God! Ends fairly dry. Bit like drinking pure Eau de Cologne! 140311

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. A hazy amber beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of spices, cinnamon, malt, yeast, and flowers. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, pepper, cinnamon, yeast, malt, and some hops, leading to a dry bitter finish.

Fad: Orange uklar øl med et fint skumhoved. Ekstra point for at prøve noget andet. Øllen fungerer bare ikke optimalt. AL for meget foregår uden nogen form for balance. Lidt ordinær bliver den til sidst da intet rigtig skiller sig ud.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Serving: 330 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. Minor gusher alert! I popped the top and out she came! The nose is a bit of spruce with some apple, herb notes (lavender, basil, tarragon), and a good dose of florals. Intriguing at least. It pours a slightly hazy, amber color with a huge head that eventually settles down to a very thin, white sheet of large bubbles. More floral than some of their other brews with a bit of a metallic note up front and a good bit of potpourri in the back. I’m not sure it’s a fresh meadow. Perhaps in that "it smells like spring" detergent sort of way. I hate to say it, but this one isn’t for me. Too floral and perfumed. I feel like I am drinking a dryer sheet. Light to medium in body with lots of carbonation leading to a dry, very floral finish. At least I should have nice smelling breath.

Clear deep orange beer, very fizzy yellowish head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: citrus, pot-pouri, dried orange peel, cloves, other herbs and spices. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: bit fruity first, oranges, overripe fruits, lots of spices, herbal, bitter hops. Aftertaste: citrus hops, some alcohol warming the throat, bitter and a little nasty.

05/03/2011 - on tap @ Alvinne Craft Beer Festival (2011-81) Thanks to Brian for the sample!
Cloudy orange beer, very creamy smooth head, stable and adhesive. Aroma: band-aid, yeast, little fruity. MF: ok carbon, light body. Taste: same band-aid again, guess it’s the yeast? Fruity and somewhat chemical. Aftertaste: little dry, bit watery, more of the chemical taste. Nope, prefer the Stateside Saison!

A bit too carbonated, it could make for a messy pour for the unprepared. Very complex all the way through. The nose is a bit muddled, but the tea spices come through. After the beer calms down, you begin to understand what the brewer was trying to do. He almost gets there too, but falls a bit short leaving us with a great beer instead of a grand beer. I like the spiciness mixing with the wheat profile.

Bottle at ACBF 2011. Hazy blonde pour, creamy off-white head. Aroma is of mint, rhubarb and spices. Flavor is slightly sweet, slightly bitter and very fresh. Strange brew.
