COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rated as the 15th best Saison in the world by ratebeer.com in 2009! Once a year we go to our friends with local gardens and local farmers to find our ingrediants for this Harvest Saison. Brewed with 30 lbs of locally harvested squash/pumpkins, and a secret ingrediant that produces a orange/red color...Our most authentic Belgian yet! 6.5% ABV.

adnielsen (9286) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 14, 2014
On tap @ Black Bottle. Pours a milky yellow appearance with a white head. Really spicy yeasty, bright citrusy, peppery, somewhat herbal, orange fruity aroma. A touch tart, chewy squash, light caramel, orange citrusy, peppery flavor. OK but I like a lot of their other Saison better.

ineedbeer (801) - Oakland, California, USA - OCT 27, 2013
On tap at brewpub. Aroma is fairly floral with a nice phenolic valance of light pepper and coriander. Light pear and citrus esters. Pours a murky golden orange with a somewhat thin white head with average retention that lingers on the edges. Light lacing and small legs. Flavor has a light grainy sweetness with a moderately strong floral character. Light coriander and peppercorn notes come in at the end to balance the floral notes. Mid palate some light citrus and pear notes. Medium light bitterness with a light floral hop character. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation; very silky mouthfeel. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall a very enjoyable beer with a nice mouthfeel and great water profile. Nice floral quality that isn’t too overwhelming and is well balanced by the phenolics.

sonnycheeba (3641) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Tap. Pours hazy orange/gold with thin, fizzy white head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is bread and biscuit malt, pumpkin, fresh grassy hops, honey, and light orange peel. Flavor is fresh oranges, herbs, sweet malts, light grassy hops, and honey; dry lightly sweet finish. Light/medium body and low carbonation.

puzzl (3252) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Tap at the brewpub. I question how they decided this was the 15th rated saison in 2009, considering those ratings kind of suck. The beer isn’t great, honestly. Tastes like a typical failed brewpub saison: underattenuated, malty, nutty, mild esters. Some honey, grain. Dull.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
notalush (4920) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Tap at Trinity - hazy gold with a fluffy white head - a very earthy, tangy saison, with a yeasty character not unlike a hefe - medium dry, peppery, with a hint of pear character - just the slightest bit of funkiness to it - the squash compounds the earthiness, but thankfully does not add a vegetal character - dry, dusty finish - quite good.

3.8
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
alagnak (467) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2009
Growler. Creamy white head atop really hazy yellow - nice looking beer. Nose is hefe-like esters and a punchy yeast and hay. Flavor starts as the nose, with the clove and yeastiness forefront. Pumpkin/squash is evident in the middle, and, as advertised, gives the beer a creamy appearance. Finish is lots of white pepper, hints of spicy herbs. Nice, clean, easy drinker.
