Bottle from a trade with 5000. Pours hazy burnt orange color with white head. Aromas of bread dough, lemons, some spices and earthy hops. Bready and spicy flavor with lemons and some herbal hops. Light body with average carbonation. Very nice. Thanks Andre.

Bought a few bottles of this brew to share with family and freinds on New Years. Light malty sweetness throughout. Hoppy lemon citrus with just a touch of bitterness. Tart and tangy with some spiciness. Dry and crisp finish. Not realy my style, but I enjoyed this as did everyone with me.

750ml capped bottle pours a golden orangeish color with a finger of white head and some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is light grains and citrus and earthy hops. Taste is light malty sweetness with a healthy dose of citrus and earthy hop bitterness. A pleasing mouthfeel from the abundant carbonation and medium body. A great easy drinking brew.

In bottle; aroma was hoppy for sure, with some fruit notes. Taste was not what I expected, hoppy with some earthiness and quite dry. Not my kind of beer but OK

Tap at Upright - hazy light copper - nose of fruity fruity and citric American hops, crackery malts - flavor is crisp and crackery - lightly flinty - a touch of honey sweetness and toasted grain on the tail end - light spiciness from the yeast - dry, toasty, gingerbread finish, with some light estery character - an awesome brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aromas of grass, hay and pine. Hazy orange/tan with an off-white head. Definitely tasting a Saison barnyard funkiness thatís tempered by the roasted malt and grassy, herbacious hops. An underlying sourness, but this isnít a "sour". Like a Saison crossed with an American pale ale. Some lemony/citrus notes and a clean, refreshing finish. This is a delicious farmhouse style ale thatís very easy to drink, but is not simplistic.

bottle... bright and clear gold, great white lacing... the aroma and taste are both a very solid saison, exactly what you expect, floral, bitter, a bit of musk, not very sweet, gets much better as you drink, if it had a bit more of sourness would be world class

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to DrBill, pour was hazy yellow with white head, aroma brought notes of fruity peach and pear, some slight spice and earth tones, biscuit and slight toffee notes in there as well, with a noticeable pepper component. Taste is a mix of slightly tart white fruit, hints of earth and sweet biscuit, some slight fruity notes balanced by a dry peppery component, finishing fairly dry, slightly sweet with a slight herbal quality.
