SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Bottle. Batch 2. Pours a perfect orange hazy color with a fluffy white head that lasts and laces the glass. Aromas increase as the beer warms and becomes more and more enticing. Notes of perfectly balanced brett with pepper and saison spices, flowers, light fruit notes, dry and crisp. Palate is full bodied with a nice carbonation, dry in the finish. Flavors of flowers, a light funky barnyard, grass, star, hay.

Clareeses (39) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 18, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2016 Corked bottle. Heavy fruit aroma - peach and strawberry. Opaque amber appearance, mild carbonation. Can definitely taste the pinot initially, though also has heavy cheesy funk. Alcoholic finish. Definitely a sipper...but very unique.

elihapa (1552) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - NOV 1, 2016
bomber, Wallys @ $12.99. Pours a hazy, soft gold with a medium coarse white head. Dusty aromas of white pepper, coriander, hint of Brett, coconut. Flavor has peppery saison yeast, mild tang of mandarin orange, and a background woodsy vinous element. Body is medium, fuller than most Saisons, probably due to Alcohol and barrel aging. A complex and tasty drink, though Im less convinced that the final product is greater than the individual parts that went into this.

tightslice (1069) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 22, 2016
Bottle from Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City, CA ($18 take-away). Pours a picturesque light golden amber. Aroma is mild funk, light orange blossoms, fermented orange peels, citra hops. Palate is creamy smooth yet crisp. Taste is a complex stew of bright orange, rotten orange, floral orange, medicinal / vitamins, spicy pepper, hops... so much going on that this shouldnt be good but it works. A rotten potpourri of a beer that is quite glorious.

michcam8 (513) - Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2016
Finally bucked up to buy this bottle. Pours a hazy golden orangish glow, with a fluffy white head. Aroma of chardonnay, orange zest, barnyard funk and light malts. Taste is orange marmalade, funky brett yeast, mouth puckering grapefruit. Dry finish. Zero detection of alcohol. Damn fine beer. Would recommend to others for sure.

Bottled. Pours hazy golden with an average white head. Aroma of hoppy citrus notes, funk, yeast, vanilla, wood, grapes and spices. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up being dry and slightly bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and average to lively carbonation. An excellent Saison.🌟🌟🌟🌟

Mr_Abner (342) - Michigan, USA - AUG 29, 2016
Bottle (Dec 2015 date). Pours golden with an off-white fluffy head. Minimal bubbles stick to the glass as I drink it. Smells of berries, oak, spices, sweet malts, some alcohol. Medium sweet with a light bitterness underneath. Tastes of soft Brett, spices, sweet malts, some fruit. Medium+ bodied. Flavors last well into the finish.

brigg (634) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 26, 2016
(Bottle) Cloudy orange body with a large, dissipating eggshell head. Wonderful aroma of wheat, red wine, fruit, yeast, spice, some wood, and a hint of brett sourness. Medium body, full carbonation, sticky mouthfeel. Flavor of red wine, brettanomyces, grapes, rose, pepper, medium hops. The combination of elements combine surprisingly well in the aroma but not as successfully in the flavor.
