COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The radiant energy of the sun gives life to all that we enjoy. Flowing field of barley for malting, surging vines of ripening hops and even pure, clean water owe their vitality to the sun. Just as we do. So in crafting this unique, hazy orange-hued ale, we poured in nature’s great gifts of German malts and European hops to feed the dynamic yeast that we imported from Belgium. Here in the quiet tanks of Victory our yeast brought vitality to this Belgian style farmhouse ale. That energy has created impressions that range from lemon peel to black pepper, though such spices are not added. Great with a wide array of foods, count on the bright soul of Helios Ale to bring life to all of your meals!

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2006
Bottle (750ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc and mabel - mabel’s bottle. Cloudy gold with suspended particles, and a decent foamy white head. Deep funky spice/yeast aroma; dry, with wood resin - ultimately very sweet. The taste was quite mild - soft spice and grain, a hint of fresh tropical fruits and alcohol mixing in the finish. Average body, only mildly carbonated, the finish was very quick and not too boozy at all - nice, quite drinkable, not awesome but quite solid.

mansquito (3281) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2006
Shared a bottle of this stuff with my brother a my father. Has a quick descending head and it has a cloudy body that is very clearly unfiltered... with a sort of yellow-orange color. Tastes pretty swell with a sort of fruity, citusy taste going for it. No alcohol aftertaste at all though. Definately gets better as it warms up, but overall, it is a good beer through and through.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2006
Hazy pastel yellow, small white head. Mildly yeasty aroma, prominent alcohol and light notes of tropical fruit. Flavour starts a touch sweet, fleeting dry fruit, pineapple, alcohol in the finish cuts the sweetness. Average palate. Pretty decent saison. 6+/3/7/3/15

jonnabrix (137) - Newberrytown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2006
The inital aroma and flavor are dominated by light citrus and hops. The more it warms, and the more you drink, the greater the sweet malt makes its presence known. Doesn’t have the complexity I hoped, but quite enjoyable.

cbrixius (136) - Newberrytown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2006
Woh, very bubbly coming out of the 750 ml bottle straight from the brewery. Hazy orange copper hue. Citrus nose. Light character with sweet maltiness. I liked it, but not as much as some other American Belgian style ales.

Ungstrup (29135) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2006
An unclear orange beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet spicy - especially coriander coming thru. The flavor is sweet malty and spicy - again coriander being most dominant.
