Pours a very cloudy, very orange color. Actually, Id call this mango color. Pretty good white head, about three fingers in my tulip glass. Low retention, no lacing. Only head left after a few minutes is what is one the edge.Tejas (1009) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 3, 2016
Aroma is Belgian yeast. Yeast, banana, orange peel. While it doesn’t smell bad, it’s not at all what I expected.
Taste is yeast, banana, orange peel. There may be a bit of juicy orange. There’s some malty sweetness that counters the yeast. It’s a sweet beer, more yeasty than citrusy or sweet.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied. No alcohol really to speak of. There may be a touch of clove coming in. A little bitter at the finish. It’s right on the border of wet or dry, I can’t make up my mind. Pretty good carbonation. Easy to drink.
Overall, this is okay. It’s not amazing, but not terrible. I expected more clementine and less orange peel. I would probably buy it again, but I’m torn if it’s worth a recommendation. Meh.
Wow, what a nice saison. The oranges compliment perfectly. This is refreshing, zippy, spicy and just a tad bit tart. Reminds me of the precious Celis White that I still miss to this day.

Bottle purchased at a local package store. Pours light gold with a small fizzy white head. Not a whole lot of lacing. The smell is very mild. It mostly smells like hay. Hard to smell notes of mandarin oranges. The smell is soft and weak. The taste is a little bit stronger but still lacks any sweet, juicy fruity orange taste. The malts and spices seem to lack character and I can taste corn on my pallet. This beer is just a bit watered down for me. I expected more flavor and maybe even some tang from the citrus fruit. Not a whole lot of character from this beer. kevinator (2867) - The Colony, Texas, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Aroma of orange and honey malt. Light golden orange color. Light weight but not watery. Strong carbonation for a saison. Reminded me a little like a shandy but more complex. Slight hops presence worked with the citrus aspect. bleeng (1705) - Houston not near Beersel., Texas, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle thanks to Tom. Not much nose but a little fruity. Taste is light and refreshing with a hint of orange. Good summer drinker.

poured hazy pale golden with a small amount of loose white suds, aroma is sweet and yeasty; the flavor is light peppery bitterness, some sweet caramel and orange/ banana with bready notes. It’s a bit thin but the flavor is not bad. deyholla (12590) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a light sweet citrus note with some sweet grains and a bit of Belgian yeast. Flavor has a decent amount of yeast with a bit of light sweet citrus and some earthy sweet grains backing. kermis (14999) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2013
