I’ve had this a few times with large variations in taste, which I believe is directly attributable to freshness. I had a super fresh bottle, which I am going to make this rating for. Pours a nice pale gold to straw yellow, medium white head, larger bubbles. Aroma light of yeast, biscuit, lemony citrus, slight malt, and coriander. Flavor matches well and is extremely refreshing, enjoyable, but definitely not a hearty saison. It has saison character, but isn’t a model for the category.
Nice label on bottle, I’m getting a bollywood looking at it. Not a blonde, don’t be fooled, this is a hazy copper ale of some sort. Big rock craggy head sizzle down to nice lacing. Smell is mildly metallic. First taste impression is sizzling cutting co2, NICE! So creamy smooth, I’ve used creamy to describe other beers but the co2 in this makes it so creamy! This is pretty much the effect I get when I think about a saison; smooth easy drinking brew with lots of co2 and quite an aspect of freshness. Saison it is, so friendly and it hides it’s alky without any negative attributes. So, you better watch out and you better not cry! It will give you a little kick in the ass! Fun, easy, nice, good, yummy, tasty, sizzly, beer drinken experience. Great job AB! My bollywood continues all the way to the end! rondphoto (4494) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - OCT 12, 2016
bottle @ Chief Market / Lima OH --- Hazy dark orange amber color, fluffy ivory head that stays at two-fingers, a few lace dots. Taste is semi-sweet malt with edgy carbonation that moves to light spice, then light hops, then grows more sweet in a lingering finish. A light-bodied brew that somehow manages to be heavy in the belly. I can drink it easily, but wouldn’t seek another. phaleslu (10747) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 29, 2016
12 oz. bottle from DrSilverworm. Thanks, Chris! Pours a cloudy burnt red orange with a small off-white head that settles into a ring and a few spots of film. Notes of banana, residual sugars, leaves, toast, caramel, cardboard, wheat, candy apple, and nuts. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, oxidized mouthfeel. This is a saison? Nope. jfb (6830) - GERMANY - NOV 17, 2015
(bottle) hazy amber-ruby colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of chestnuts and herbal hops, with a light touch of honey, some grainy pale malts and pears. flavour is mostly the same, lots of grainy pale malts and popcorn, with some notes of yeast, raisins and a floral-hoppy finish. medium- to heavy-bodied with average carbonation.

I do enjoy it when the marketing description goes on and on about aroma this and sweetness that. For me, this is a nice, light summertime blonde that throws a hint of orange juice and dryness into the finish. Poured from a bottle. markas101 (2507) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2015
Tap, Arbour Brewing Company, Ann Arbor, MI, USA. Medium gold. Yeasty aroma. Bready with a sweet honey flavour. DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 24, 2015
4oz on tap at the Corner Brewery. Interesting tangerine fruitiness up front. Some belgian candi sugar. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Some spiciness. Hazy orange color. Ring of white head, loose dot of lace. Medium-plus body. Smooth, light carbonation. Kind of slick. Kind of hoppy for a blonde, drinks sort of like an under-hopped IPA with the mix of citrusy hop and caramel maltiness. Some sort of odd spice to it, an indian spice? Alright, but overall it’s just mostly caramely and malty. weihenweizen (4162) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2015
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle from jsquire poured into a glass. Hazy light orange with small white head. Aroma is very light orange, medium body, medium carbonation, and good small-bubble lacing. Taste is light orange, some grassy hops, and hints of coriander. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Pour on tap at the brewery, clear yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of bread, grass, hints of spicy, slightly soapy notes into some flowers, touch of pear and white grape, but mainly pretty husky. Taste is a mix of grass, bread, biscuit, some spice, herbal notes, finishing fairly dry, slightly bitter.
