Pours golden orange with decent white head, nice lacing. Aroma is Belgian sugar and yeast, fruity hops, hint of funk. Taste is a sweet malt, with fruity Belgian yeast, slight tart Brett, hops and clove in the finish. Definitely better with air and warmth. good stuff

Bottle@sbwf14. Orange hazy. Citrus, with a sturdy malty backing. Bit too sturdy. Nicely bittered, balance, great beer overall. I’m not that convinced rye makes a saison better, but interesting to have tried.

tastybeer (1729) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy orange, big white head. Good retention, some lace. Aroma of rye, dust, light brett, caramel, floral hop. Taste is quite sweet, minimal bitterness, rye, toffee, booze, toffee. Palate is sticky, slick, sweet finish. No brett, too sweet, too hot to be saison.

Gold pour. Complex aroma with brett, rye, oak, funk. The taste adds more sweet fruit and is slightly less sour than I imagined. Still very crisp and clean. Like the spice from the rye ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
