A hazed amber ale with a thin lacing mocha head. In aroma, a nice coriander laden malt, orange peels, grassy and fruity, classic. In mouth, a nice fruity malt with cloves, curacao, Belgian hops, a nice patio quaffer with class. Solvent notes develops as beer warms up. On tap at the Arrow and Loon, May 5 2012.

On tap at BarHopBar. Deep yellow body with significant white head. Above average mouthfeel offset by slight astringency I think from the cloves. Gummy spicy taste, Ok drinkability.No sign of the mangos.Pepper nose. jercraigs (10374) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2012
2012-06-16. Very lightly hazy golden orange body, small off white head. 3+ Flavour is nice, pleasant malt with toasty malt and biscuity notes. Very light funky farmhouse notes. Mild aroma, light malt, very light farmhouse barnyard accent. Average plus palate, suitable carb. Not very assertive but it’s not meant to be. Pretty solid.

Tap at BarVolo. Pale golden-amber pour with a thick white head. The nose is rich and spicy. Nice bright fruit and spice aroma along with a little it of dry toasted malt. The flavour is fairly muted with a little bit of soft malt character, some lightly minerally character and a short dry finish. Fairly assertive bitterness on the finish but it's pretty nice. A well-made, light-bodies saison.

[4512-20120616] Tap. Corn and nail polish mud aroma. Clear, orange amber body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Straw grass notes in the flavour has a bit of a sweet citrus-tinted finish. Medium body. Interesting, I didn’t like the aroma at first. (5/3/7/3/12) 3.0

pours hazy golden orange with a nice creamy white head, good retention and lacing. very yeasty and peppery, unibroue-like, loads of coriander, some wheat and a hint of lemon, fresh cereals - graininess. bright belgium carbonation, short and shy herbal-citrusy and spicy finish, light body - slightly watery, but overall quite good mouthfeel. dry and balanced. more than decent offering but falls a bit short.. solidfunk (8953) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Tastes fizzy and carbonated. Smells a little hoppy. Doesn’t have a huge body. Some florals. Pours nice cloudy copper with only a bit of lacing. Almost no leave on this. Taste kind of like soda water. On tap at volos. blankboy (7689) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2012
Draught at Volo. Pours a cloudy golden-orange with an average size lasting frothy off-white head and good lacing on the glass. Aroma of grain, herbs, light spices, a light sourness, perfume and light hops (7-). Flavour’s even better, quite tasty really, juicy and fruity along with spices, herbs and light grassy hops (7+). Dry spicy finish. Medium bodied. Very easy to drink, I quite liked it. Radek Kliber (7359) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - FEB 11, 2013

May 2, 2012 - on draught at Volo. Hazy orange-gold, decent but diminishing frothy off-white head with light lacing. Smells nice - quite pungent, grassy/catty bitterness, background fruit, underpinned by lush yeast (a bit milky, which is weird). Taste it pleasant - dry, a bit chalky, raw cinnamon and spice, a bit more spicy bitter than I expected, not as grassy as the aroma - not too sweet, which is nice. Average body, mild carbonation, odd minerally cloying (not sweet) finish - coats the palate. Good, but .... not great; oddly I would like it to be a touch sweeter.
