UPDATED: JUN 17, 2010 Holy shit. Aroma is slightly sour- acidic, funky, yeasty, lemon. Yum. Taste is slightly licorice, yeasty, alcoholic, oak, and funk. This beer is a lot bigger than expected by the aroma. I really want to like the taste, but I canít. The taste ruins this for me. So hot! Funky, peppery, alcoholic, dry.

Beautiful saison. Nose of hay, grass, some good poop, some caramel, and some spice. Flavor has a nice, lemon citrus presence to add to the rest. Not as sweet as the nose, but still pretty awesome. A great dry, semi-hoppy finish goes perfectly with the rest. A bit over-carbonated but still a great saison. Really enjoyed it.

Strange... people are saying that it was too carbonated, mine was way under-carbonated, giving it a typical American Saison character, too sweet and chewy for the style, brett wasnít even detectable, fruitiness was unappealing and not quite balanced enough by the rye. Seemed like it had potential, hopefully they work out the kinks.

2008-08-07. Pastel golden yellow body with a frothy off white head. (4+) Pleasant aroma is lightly funky, floral, light coriander notes? (7+) Flavour is similar, light lemon and bitterness, very light funk. Alcohol is hardly noticed. Lovely! Not a lot of brett character though? Average palate suits it. (3+) Very good. More please.

Pours copper/orange with a sustained white head. Smells grassy with some dry malt and rye bread hints. Tastes perfumy, lightly bitter, dry, grassy.

One of the better Saisons Iíve ever had. Big alcohol, but all hidden. A very tart citrus saison, not as savory/salty as others. Good spices, present funk/sour. Very full flavor, not watery or thin at all. Although it had good carbonation, it was not a light bubbly beer, this was a heavier, although relatively dry Saison. Delectable to drink, wish I had more.

750ml Bottle. Cloudy orange copper with light white head and good lacing. Good aroma of yeast with a bit of citrus and bite. Very light and citrusy on the palate with nice body and punch to it. A great all around beer for the style.

eaglefan538 (2912) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Poured an orangey, almost copper color, some haze in there, big generous frothy head, but not ridiculous, pourable for sure, solid splotchy lacing all the way down. The aroma was caramel, pepper, yeast, fruity esters. The flavor was excellent bret notes in there for some light funk, strong pepper, strong rye notes, phenolic character, caramel, bitter touch of hops, citrus/orangey notes, other lighter fruits. Dang, this thing was excellent, flaw only being a tad on the too big of a malt base (surprised there was 8.5pct abv), but it was fairly well balanced with some hops, rye dryness, and bretty dryness. Ample carbonation, but nothing over the top. I want me some more.

kopher (592) - New York, USA - AUG 10, 2009
cloudy copper, huge rocky offwhite head. super yeasty aroma, backed up by citrus, figs, biscuit, and a bit of pine. bright but deep aroma, a hint of metal. flavor is also complex, with a nice balance of alcohol, sour dark fruit and a sweet cookie-like flavor, with a bittersweet finish thatís just a bit flat. sticky and somewhat overcarbonated. overall this is very good, itís sweet but refreshing.

Another impressive and tasty beer from Bruery. Fruity saison that is very drinkable. A bit too carbonated. I didnít taste the brett.
