Bottle poured a clear tarnished gold with a lasting creamy ivory head. Aromas of biscuit, earthiness, yeast, pear and grapefruit. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a smooth dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, yeast, earthiness and grapefruit with a smooth dry bitter lingering earthy finish. A decent Belgo IPA, but not a saison by any stretch of the imagination!

clear yellow, smooth white head.
aroma is slighlty hoppy, slightly flowery, dry, quite nice.
flavor is hoppy, pine, flowers, bittter, malty balance. Ungstrup (37227) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2012
Bottled. A hazy dark golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of yeast, spices, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of yeast, spices, caramel, malt, alcohol, and fruits, leading to a dry spicy finish. JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2013 Slightly hazy pale golden with a small but frothy white head, good lacings. More phenolic and spicy than hoppy aroma, malty, fruity, whiff of grass. Taste is sweet malty, citrusy and spicy with notes of orange zest leading to a lingering bitter finish. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2012
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of fiulijn. Pours yellow with a slight haze and a dense and lively white head leaving quite some lacework. Very spicy, fruity and yeasty nose. Medium body, a little initial sweetness, then a slight tartness. Typical spiciness from the Saison yeast and a distinct yeast character. The yeast dominates over the Citra here I’d say. Dry but not overly bitter finish. 270612

Tasted: bottle. Hazy golden straw/ color. High saison carbonation. Light crisp body with a nice hop/ fruity nose. harrisoni (18410) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2012
355ml bottle from The Bottle Shop, Canterbury. Hazy orange gold lasting thick white head. Yes Belgian saisony aroma, with some piney American hop. You know what? It’s got quite a good Belgian saison quality but with a tight as your ass American twist. I like the Belgian authenticity, but it lacks a touch of the true wildness of a Belgian beer. If anything its too perfect, too clipped. Tasty as hell. I enjoyed it, even though it is a bit too good. Bit of perfume on finish, Decent bitterness on finish. Yep, like this. kaser (6213) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Pours clear orange with a TON of frothy white head, had to scoop head off with a spoon actually. Great floral and citrus aroma. Spicy and mild hops taste. Really taste the saison in this more than the IPA. Decent overall but was hoping for more of an IPA taste Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy citrus, light floral notes, Belgian yeast, orange peel, and grapefruit. It pours a mostly transparent gold with just of touch of haze. It has a three finger soapy white head with excellent retention. Quite a bit of clumpy lacing is left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate citrus flavors. There’s some hints of Belgian yeast in the background. The finish has moderate grapefruit, light-moderate floral notes, and just a hint of lemon peel. It’s light-medium bodied with lively, but not prickly, carbonation. Overall, it’s a nice cross between an IPA and a Saison. I would lean towards labeling it as an IPA. johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2012
Very well hopped citric nose with grapefruit and toasted cloves. Pours cloudy orange with a fluffy head. Flavour follows the nose and finishes with tangy hops and some sweet bubblegum. Not bad.
