Draft @ Capones: Poured a foggy orange with some nice head. The aroma was some citrus and yeast. The flavor was really smooth with hints of citrus, hops and finishing with a nice honey flavor. Overall, an excellent ’different’ beer. MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - SEP 5, 2008

Draft at Capone’s. Pours cloudy dull gold with creamy white head and great lacing. Nose is citric, pale malty, with some mild spicy, honey, and tangerine notes. Tastes on the sweet side, with pale malt, honey esters, mild spice, and mild orange marmaladey notes. Medium palate heft with decent complexity. Not nearly funky or assy enough to be considered a saison. Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2008
Draft at brewpub. Poured cloudy golden orange in color with a small white head. Aroma of honey, saison yeast, fruity esters, sweet with some mild spices. Tastes of honey, cloves, yeast, bread, and pepper. Nice saison overall. auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Very cold light salt nose. A bit of honey, malt and spice. Pours a hazy orange-gold, vibrant with a rim of whitish.
Flavor is an interesting amalgam savory herbal flavors, fresh yeast, honey and almonds. Very bright and dry. Salty.
This is nice. Quiet and reserved. A bit of alcohol brightens the backend. The flavors are nice. The beer is very
quaffable. Peppery and floral. Long very faint grassy finish. Nice. Balanced, subtle. kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Draft @ Bullfrog. Pours a hazy, orange-brown color; off-white head with patchy lacing. Lots of sweet honey, Belgian sugars, and very light spicing in the aroma; slightly more sweetness than I’d like to see from a saison. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: chewy sweet malts, honey, and lots of white pepper and yeastiness; average carbonation; lots of sweet honeyed maltiness, but I’d prefer a lighter, funkier, more traditional rendition. Lengthy finish: toasty malts, honey, and light spicing (cloves, predominantly). Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Coriander, bubblegum, orange peels, light jasmine and some honey. Floral hops. Cloudy golden amber with thin off-white lacing head. Medium bodied with medium effervescent carbonation. Great flavor. Starts with wheat and honey, bubblegum and coriander. Orange blossom. Sweet throughout but not cloying. Dry yeasty finish with smooth chalky after. Nice saison.
