Draft at the brewpub back in Nov 2010: golden amber with a foamy white head, spicy aroma, sour tasting, some spices as well. Not a favorite of mine. Pastor (799) - Skowhegan, Maine, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Had this a few years back at the brew pub and loved it . Knowing that was not a possibility anymore I was very happy to see the four pk at a local bottle store. By far the best gluten free brew I have tried ever, and a dam fine Saison. Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Pours a clear orange lemon with frothy white head. Aroma is very floral with bitter citrus notes and bread. Flavor is largely floral, rose water, brown sugar and pepper. Flavors definitely came out when beer warmed out. Body is light yet active carbonation.

I’ll preface this by saying that I have tried quite a few gluten free beers on the market. Green’s, Bards, Red Bridge, New Planet, T’weason’ale, New Grist, Daura, etc. This is the best one I have tried hands down. As a gluten free beer its excellent. As a saison...well....its average.
12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Contract brewed in Ipswich, MA. Fancy! The label is lacking the words "Gluten Free" as well as the required nutritional facts.
A - Hazy burnt orange body with a very thin edging of bone-white foam. Lacing is on the thin side. The head is almost non-existent, but the beer itself looks amazing.
S - An odd, but somewhat pleasant aroma that is also hard to describe. It smells almost wheaty, but there obviously isn’t any grain in here. Its somewhat grassy and sweet, almost syrupy. Finishes lightly spicy with a touch of dried orange peel.
T - Very neutral. The strong sorghum spice that I normally associate with gluten free beers is missing. Instead its a boring take on a saison. Sweet grass, light coriander, black pepper and orange peel. Finish is cereal like. Its tasty though. Mouth feel is probably a bit on the thin side but its very well carbonated. Drinkability is high.
O - Well it certainly can’t compete with a beer like Fantome, but when compared against other gluten free beers its a clear winner. The sorghum is barely present and it has a nice and refreshing flavor with some light spice and sweetness. Very well made beer.

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. 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. mkgrenwel (619) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Orange pour with little head. Aroma is citrus, pepper and yeast. Flavor is quite estery. Tons of pepper in the finish. Overly spiced. Palate is a little thick. Not exactly refreshing. Can be a bit overwhelming to try to drink more than one. Malt character is unsurprisingly strange. If I were stuck gluten free I'd grab this every once in a while, but it's not something I want regularly. tapefuzz (531) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 26, 2016
[Notes from August 2012] 12oz bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is off citrus and yeast. Taste is excessively yeasty with indistinct and overly sweet citrus. Finishes with an unpleasantly peppery taste. Yeast taste refuses to dissipate. Oily, too-heavy mouthfeel worsened by being excessively carbonated.
