Cloudy orange. Fruity honey and lactic aroma.Sweet sugary palate. Slight lactic acidity in the retronasals. Pleasant sweet honey-ey belgian ale, and not really a saison at all.
(Sample Date: 1/31/2010 Source:River City Cellars) Mostly clear orange golden with rocky white head. Spicy nose with earthy, coriander, and floral notes and a light funk. Body is quite light and fizzy on the tongue. Very floral with a peach pear fruitiness and very earthy yeast notes. Quite dry. Finish is dry with light spicy residual.

Pours a golden/amber color with an ample foamy head. Sweet aroma, slight funk, very herbal/spicy. Taste of sweet/caramel malts, coriander, floral hops, tea. Very fresh tasting, quenching. Nice floral hop and a tiny bit of peppery qualities in the finish. Excellent. I would like this even more on a warm, sunny day. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 23, 2010
Pale orange, hint of yellow, nice head, slight haze. Aroma is medicinal and slightly floral with chamomile flower. Initial malt sweetness gives way to a quick dash of hazelnut, followed by a medicinal and floral bitterness, reminiscent of some of the bitter herbal apertif liquors found in Italy. Not bad, but a bit on the too much bitter herbal and spice components for my personal preferences. kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2010
11.2oz bottle. Pours clear yellow amber, capped with a medium sized white head. Plenty of spice aroma with coriander, lemongrass, and pepper, backed up with wheat, grass, and yeast. Flavor begins with grass and wheat, with coriander, herbs, tea, and floral hops in the background. Spice plays more of a complimentary role in the flavor, whereas it dominated the aroma. Fairly long finish, with herbal and floral notes.

Tap at Birreria Paradiso. Pours a cloudy deep yellow. White, thin head. Fruity
nose: banana cream pie, cantaloupe, hefeweizen like. Tastes like a
ginger bread man. Woah. Dry. Spicy. Excellent. sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 21, 2009
(Bottled, 0.33l) Opaque orange with a smallish, firm head. Sourish aroma of barnyard, honey, pale malt, pear fruitiness, and yeast. Flavor is sourish, pale-malty, honeyish and yeasty, with lemon-orangey fruitiness (orange peel + sourness?). Almost medium body, somewhat fizzy-foamy carbonation, slightly thin and astringent palate. Somewhere between St.Bernardus Wit and Saison Dupont, but maybe with a bit thin and with too much orange-peel. Braudog (6678) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Poured a nice airy, opaque orange, with a solid undying head of foam. The aroma is delicious -- full of garden-fresh vegetables. The drink is even more enticing and flavorful! The flourish of earth, pepper, and just a kiss of ginger -- a flavor I usually don’t favor in a beer -- but in this it comes across quite nicely.

Pours amber with a nice, lasting head. Smells of green jalapenos, peppery, spicy, dry malt, perfumy. Tastes dry and citrussy with a bite, some floral undertones, spice, sweet peppers. Unusual and interesting.
