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!

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 (29223) - 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.

madsberg (10144) - Søborg, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2013 Bottled. Yellew coloured. Unclear. Dense white head. Sweetness and fruits are dominant in the aroma, but a yeasty sourness is laying in the background. Flavour is sweet grapish and perfumed. Fruity and yeasty notes. Medium bodied. Dry mouthfeel. ENds on a citric and grapish note.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2006
Bottle. Quite authentically Belgian. Yeasty, peppery, spicy, with some light alcohol warmth. Soft carbonation on the tongue, with some bitter citrus in the finish. Probably a little more clean and uniform in flavour than other saisons i’ve had, but thats not to say its bad, its quite pleasant.

MrBlizzard (4) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2006 does not count
This is a great Saison especially considering it is brewed in Downingtown, PA. Wonderful mouthfeel, just enough spice and sweetness. Many American craft brewers over emphasize the "spice" in a Saison but this is not one of them. This is a brew I could sit back and enjoy with no criticism.
