Dashimus (235) - London, Greater London, - OCT 12, 2013
Bottle thanks to Gruber, cheers. Pours a pale golden with a lot off sediment which struggles to settle and almost no head. Aroma is musty. Spice, pepper, Orange citrus with some slight earth. Also an overall aroma of golden syrup. Flavor is serious sweet with a bit of a dry finish. Low carbonation and a full body.

RichardGretton (4739) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2017
Bottle. Amber beer with a reasonable white head. The aroma is gently spiced, and the flavour is rich and malty with spice and fruityness. Overall a nice more Belgian ale style of beer than anything else. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reminds me of a Belgian triple crossed with a saison. Sweet, strong, fruity, and slightly soured.

yngwie (16879) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2015
On tap at Ramshead, Annapolis, MD. AA clear, amber colored beer topped by a dense, off-white head. Some curtains. Wort, malts and a generic fruityness in the aroma. The flavor has some yeast and a decent bitterness as well as the wort-like malts and fruityness. Itís dry and nicely carbonated, medium body. Lasting fruity and malty finish with a yeasty touch. Not much Belgian going on here. 150621

Draught @ Ramshead Tavern & Fordham Brewing, Annapolis, MD
Pours clear deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, grain and some fruitiness. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and light bitter with a long malty, sweet and grainy finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

superspak (5306) - Michigan, USA - AUG 13, 2014
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 5/3/2013. Pours moderately cloudy deep orange color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of orange, pear, apple, light banana, clove, pepper, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of orange, pear, apple, light banana, clove, pepper, herbal, grass, biscuit, light honey, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spice on the finish; with lingering notes of orange, pear, apple, light banana, clove, pepper, herbal, grass, biscuit, light honey, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt flavors; with a nice crisp malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice saison. Good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

JDBaker11058 (2061) - Maryland, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Appearance: deep orange gold, short light yellow head, minimal lacing. Aroma: sweet nose, with honey, orange zest, some candied ginger and clove. Taste: honeyed graham crackers, clove, yeast, some caramel. Finish: lingering sweetness, some apricot and marmalade over yeast, slightly boozy. Notes: Extremely sweet for the style. Not a bad beer, thatís for sure, but it doesnít feel like a saison. So, dock points for style, but not too many because itís overall a good beer. On draft at hidden gem Quench! in Silver Spring, MD.
