Bottle shared by drowland, thanks Danny! Pours an unclear orange with a thick white head, the aroma has a funky woody touch to it and some citrus as well, the flavor has a citrus and grapefruit front end with a funky amount of spices in the finish, some yeast notes come through as well, pretty interesting stuff.

very foamy pour. Tons of fizzy white head. Lots of fruity spicy aroma. Definite hints of grapefruit. Hazy orange color. Probably my favorite of this series.

750 ml bottle shared by rebelmusic- thanks, Chris! He said he’d opened the Cedar one recently and didn’t like it as much. This one pours a cloudy gold with a big off-white head. Aroma of wheat, coriander, grapefruit, soap, herbs, straw, and bready funk. Flavor of fruity nectar, straw, caramel malts, coriander, apricot, wood, and very mild grapefruit. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, fruity mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Unusual saison. I liked it. stobbe74 (3790) - DENMARK - JUN 18, 2012
Sampled at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Pours an unclear and golden beer with a white head. The aroma is malt, caramel and hops with tropical fruit and citrus. The flavor follows the nose with additional notes of grapefruit. The palate is sweetness and bitterness. Overall a good beer. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 13, 2012

750ml from Leuken’s Liquors online. Once more unto the breach. Again, a pretty decent strong brew that doesn’t quite have the saison characteristics I crave. Darkish body, fluffy head, and prickly carbonation. Lots of semi-sharp wood, with a less pronounced citric quality than expected, though that may be because it’s a comparably bigger beer. Decent. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Draft. Small beige head atop cloudy amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, wood, some spicy, light lemon. Taste is moderately sweet, lemon, light spiciness, pepper. Medium body, some stickiness. radagast83 (8624) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Draft at Churchkey for the Bluejacket/Funky Buddha/Cigar City event during SAVOR week. Poured a relatively clear orange color, off-white head. Aroma of orange peel, with a touch of what I guess is wood - but not really as remarkable as say, oak or cedar or some other type of wood. jhamp9 (2009) - Corinth, Texas, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Pours a hazy peach with never ending white head. Aroma is a lot of citrus zest with some funk and ginger. Taste is bitter citrus zest and funk. Very dry finish. Very good. oteyj (2138) - New Hampshire, USA - JUN 7, 2012
On tap at Churckey for the Funky Buddha and CCB event. Hazy orange with a massive white head. Ginger and lemon are very pronounced. Excellent herbal dough character. Oaken tannic notes and vanilla char finish with big citrus peel.
