This is a very tasty beer! Pours a copper-orange color with a white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast. pepper, and hops. Lots of flavor with orange, pepper and a solid Belgian yeast ending. Really nice! punkska101 (2135) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 19, 2011

On tap at the brewpub in Waterbury, VT. Poured a deep red with little-to-no head. My girlfriend really enjoyed this, but I thought it was simply ok. Had a bit of sharp apple taste to it, and was a bit aggressive for what I thought a saison would be.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2011 In short: A Belgian golden ale hopped like an IPA and with a rustic twist. Very goodVTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - JUN 21, 2009
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Partly cloudy dark golden body body topped by an off-white ring of foam
In long: From the nose you can tell this is a hoppy beer but not a hop monster. Some pine-tree, cedar and citrus fruits and also a rustic character. In mouth I got crackers, whole-wheat bread, cobweb, gingerbread cookies, some caramel, lots of hops, oranges. Tasty medium bitterness with a resinous character. At the end the very-american hopping played such a big part in the beer that it ended-up feeling like a yeasty rustic APA more than a hoppy Belgian beer. Yet another very good brew from The Alchemist whose products quality range from very good to fantastic. These dude make less missteps than Fred Astaire dancing a country line dance.
Draft at the brewpub - Pours a darkish amber in color with a medium white head that hangs around to produce some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is mostly citrus hops with a small amount of bready yeast in the background. Flavor is pretty hoppy (citrus and pine) with a hint of malty understructure to try and balance it out. Slight yeast sourness in the middle. Finish is lingering and bitter. Much more hoppy and really none of the Belgian character that I expected, but really good none the less. I like this one.
