Spicy orange and lemon taste. Has a big fruity nose to it - smells like a trippel but mich lighter taste. Yellowish pour at DryHop. Better than expected

I lived in Belgium for years and am very familiar with these beers. This pours hazy golden with a white head. The aroma is quite funky, the esters from the Belgian yeast being mingled with citrus aromas. The taste is the same, very citrusy and overpowering what would otherwise have been a very pleasant Belgian ale. I wish that they had produced a traditional ale instead of putting their whimsical spin on the style. I also get the hop oils coming through which disturb me greatly. I never tasted anything remotely like this in Belgium. Less is more needs less, a lot less, to be more.

Hazy orange 1 finger creamy head. Smells funky with a lot of citrus. Big creamy mouthfeel. Crisp and bready. Lots of orange citrus. Very watery though.

500ml bottle. Pours a hazed yellow with a medium white head. The head dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma of citrus, hay, fresh bread. Mild orange and grassy aromas. Some floral and earth notes. Flavor is crisp, with mild citrus tartness with some sweet bread and grassy notes. Finish is nice, crisp, dry. Above average carbonation keeps it nice and zippy on the palate. This is a nice, quenching saison.

For starters, this is not incredibly to strong for the style so that is a good start. Mine came from a newly tap keg and it’s very cloudy orange with a long lasting had of fine bubbles. This is overall a very mild beer with just a touch of clove and citrus plus some earthy bitterness in the finish. The texture is the best part: creamy without being sweet or heavy. It’s refreshing and pretty good but I can’t help but think a little tartness or something would set it off. It just strikes me as a bit flat as it is.

On tap at Jerry’s. Pours flat clear amber with moderate lacing. Aroma is weak and floral. Very light bodied with no initial flavor and weak bitter slightly musty finish. Not offensive but not good.

Draft at Jerry’s. Gold with good, creamy, white head, light lacing / Bright, mild nose of lemon, banana, resin, cream, funk / Light to medium body, a touch thin, soft carbonation, excellent balance with lightly bitter finish / Elegant flavors of lemon, gingko, honey, straw, grass / The body could use a little more oomph, but very nice.
