Pours a gorgeous glowing orange with a light haziness whispering through it. Grapefruit, tangerine in the nose with a nice spicy hoppiness. Creamy mouthfeel, zesty fruit in the flavor pops nicely and is complimented by more spicy hops and a sweet maltiness. Tangy dry finish. Tasty saison that drinks like an IPA.

Bottle from "hannont". Colour...golden straw with no head. Nose...loads if tropical fruit with some peach and apricot. Palate...sweet but dry with lots of fruit and some ethanol to go with the predominate peach and apricot and moderate CO2.

22oz bottle from Antioch Fine Wine and Spirits, split with my wife. Pours a bright, amber color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is a little bready, but mainly hoppy, citrus, grapefruit. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, cereal, a little bitter, grassy hops, with a light bitter finish. A pretty decent beer, but not much of a saison in my opinion.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2012 Bottle, 09/09/2012. Pours cloudy dark orange, thin white head, thin soapy lacing. Aroma of thick buttermilk bread, yeast, light spices, vanilla, mild earthy bitterness. Hops, though not much present in the nose, burst forward in the taste, citrus and grapefruit, bready malts underneath with spicy finish, bitter fruity aftertaste. Dense body, high carbonation. Well, alright, but I expected a bit more from these two brewers.
Re-rate from second bottle 09/12/2012- Aroma much improved, lots of pineapple, mango, citrus, hops much more evident to help make the whole thing more cohesive. Maybe some bottle variation?

Pours a deep orange to brown with white head. Aroma of fruit and malty hops. Taste is fruity caramel forward. No funk. Odd for a saison.

Dark cloudy honey color. Huge head with the aroma of a barnyard. Thick mouth. Taste is very malty. Some bitterness and grapefruit in the finish. Pretty easy drinking.

22 oz. bottle pours a hazy orange with lumpy white head and good lacing. Smells like a Three Floyds brew with floral and citrus hops, although subdued.. Aroma is full of melon, honeysuckle, peach,and pineapple with a modest malt backbone. Body is medium with average carbonation. Mouthfeel is sticky and taste is sweet with a clean dry finish and noticeable alcohol. An interesting take on a saison, and the best of this style I’ve tried - much better than FFF Rabbid Rabbit

Tap at the brewpub, served in a tulip. Translucent Amber-apricot color pour with a sticky white head. It actually forms an Alpha King crown lace on the glass! Aroma of dried apricot and cut grass. Taste is sweet malt with citrus rind, and a real Earthy quality. Pretty fucking delicious. Full Mouthfeel that coats the tongue leaving you feel like you just sipped heavy cream. A little boozy but so quite good.
