Tap at BCTC 2010. Pours hazy orange with a slight, white head. Citrus fruits, wood and spices haunt the aroma. Flavor is fairly sweet, with more fruits and some yeast, light funk and mild hops. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes dry and yeasty with some notes of lemon. Very good.

effervescent amber, large bubbled, creamy white head. Heavy floral nose, light Orange flavor, manure, pepper. Flavor is a very creamy yeast, orange, light earth and pepper, some lemon through the finish. A bit thick for the undry profile, sweetness because a bit burdonsome. Still very well balanced and pleasant, I like the controlled spice and fruit sweetness differing to malt profile.

LilBeerDoctor (3370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet tropical fruits, lemon, bitter hops, and yeast. Flavor of yeast, bready malts, and sweet fruits with Belgian yeast in the finish. Overall, it was a very enjoyable saison. I canít identify anything specific that was great, but it was very well put together and nice to drink. 7/4/8/4/15 [3.8/5]

Surprised to see this clasified as a wheat beer as well. Dark mahogoney color with a fluffy tan head. A really strange aroma - cross between butter and ham. The flavor was surprisingly robust with a big hit of chocolate sweetness with a somehwat sweet finish. Hints of citrus as well.

Wild yeasty aroma with sour profile. I like the fact that this beer has limited carbonation which allows the sour/wild flavors to really come through. However, somthing missing here, perhaps a bit more malt and hops to add a peppery finish would do this beer well.

This is really an excellent beer., but I am surprised to see this labelled a German Wheat. This is no hefeweizen, but rather much more in line with a Saison. I have always despised American copies of this style, but this one is perfect, in its restrained sweetness, velvety body, profound complexity and light texture. Pricey, but I think itís worth it.

Bottle drank at another great Utah tasting. Pours a cloudy yellow with a large white head. A sweet citrus nose, rich fruit. The flavor is a very good simple and well made fruity, dry, rich citrus and yeast filled Saison. Very good.

Sample thanks to Ryan at RBSG 10, I had to buy another bottle and give it a fuller rate though! Pours a lightly brown orange with a larger big bubble sticky tightly packed white foamy head. Aroma is soapy with noticeable alcohol, delicate, very floral and fruity, like peaches, well attenuate with nice summer fruit. Flavor follows exactly, big peach and passionfruit, NZ galaxy hops?, melds perfectly with the light graininess and yeast profile, nicely dry, so much fruit, melon, passionfruit, peach, just a light kick of alcohol in the finish. Light bodied, corse fizzy carbonation, very dry but avoids been overly bone dry.
