12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass.
Cloudy orange color with a small white head.
Fruity nose, dried apricots, some spice and light grain.
Juice-like flavors of oranges, low bitterness, some yeast and metallic notes.
Kinda dry, medium bodied, lively, off balanced and overall not that great. Ed5388 (3488) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 19, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden/yellow color with with an inch of foamy white head. Aroma of faint orange peel, and very herbal and medicinal. Taste is coriander, banana, belgian yeast, light orange/citrus, with more of the herbal/medicinal notes. Not bad for a sorghum beer, but definitely different.

Bière orangée avec une faible mousse. Nez levuré et fruité (agrumes, banane, poire). En bouche, des saveurs d’orange, de citron et de houblon frais s’amalgament à une légère amertume. Une belle saison sans gluten que j’ai pris plaisir à boire sans gêne. Lukaduke (3206) - Gray, Maine, USA - APR 28, 2013
Pours a orange golden color with a finger of white foam. The nose hides the sphorgam nicely with a little rustic spice, citrus zest and some round fruit. The palate however does not hide the sphorgam quite so well,,, strange artificial sweetener, grainy aspartame, dirty lingering aftertaste... One of the better go beers I’ve had but am convinced that this cannot be done well... jd10 (68) - Lebanon, New Hampshire, USA - APR 16, 2013
pours orange with small, slightly off-white head. yeast, spice (primarily coriander), and citrus dominate the aroma. taste is lightly sweet grain, citrus, spice, and yeast. finish is on the bitter side, with a touch of piney hop flavor. aftertaste is a bit soapy.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 Weird herbal vegetal dough and Budweiser aroma. Not too good. Cooked vegetables. Asparagus. Ham. scarletfire65 (1472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours a deep orange, slightly hazy, average head. Aroma is pungent, with band aid, funk, citrus, coriander. Medium bodied, strong saison yeast profile, lots of coriander and black pepper, orange, and a big bitter finish. Crisp and pretty clean, maybe a twang of medicinal flavors. If not labeled as sorghum, I wouldn’t have thunk it. blklab2007 (2120) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Bottle poured an amber in color with a thin coating of white head that fell right off. Aroma has light hops, flowers, light orange rind, and some grains. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation on the lower side. Flavor has some yeast, light orange peels, minerals, and a bit of increasing bitterness into the finish. Interesting beer but not one I would go back to. Definitely the best gluten free beer I have tried by a long shot. dogfishho (669) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Pours a cloudy orange gold with a big white head. The aroma is clean and typical of a saison with clear evidence of the orange peel. The hops are earthy and funky. I’m not entirely sure where all of the low ratings come from here. I couldn’t tell that this was gluten free... it had a nice round mouthfeel and clean finish. jgb9348 (6328) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Hazy golden honey coloured body with a thin, half a centimetre tall white head. Aroma of something horribly pungent, some wet dog, cardboard, yeast, resin, and perhaps a hint of coriander seed - but this one smells pretty foul. Light-bodied; Sharp pungent cheese and bitter metal flavours at first with an awful medicinal finish and a deep unpleasant bitterness at the end. Aftertaste is just as bad with the bitterness from metal or medicine coming strong and hard, a hint of alcohol and a little bit of coriander seed, but nothing good at all. Overall, a very bad beer - even for a gluten free beer - not sure what award this beer won (from description), but it is one of the worst i’ve ever sampled after spending so much for the bottle! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 11-December-2012 for US$3.00 sampled at home in Washington on 27-January-2013.
