Pailhead (6543) - 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. b3shine (9257) - Indiana, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle to snifter. Looks decent; a translucent orange with TONS of head. Smells like a decent saison. Tastes a little bitter for a saison, but not bad. Average mouthfeel. Decent. Jaydogg8u (16) - - JUN 23, 2012
A real good floral and citrus aroma, beautiful golden color with an abundance of frothy head. A very light sweetness and medium bitterness. Light bodied, very fizzy with a clean finish. Overall a great summer time beer thats crisp, clean and refreshing! marcus (10866) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 19, 2012
On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours golden with an attractive beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a yeast-laden pale malt flavor that is fruity and slightly bitter. Nice hopping.

Bottle from Maruhn, DarmstadtPaperKnife (82) - - JUN 16, 2012
Hazy golden color. The aroma is spicy, sharp, with hints of lemon peel, bitter orange, talc, light phenol. Dry but smooth mouthfeel; the flavor is sharp and spicy, very spicy, with some malt and wheat; the bitterness level is quite high, and there is enough fruity edge with bitter orange character. Strong and long final.
Interesting but rough.
Draft. Hazy, golden, white wispy head. Piney, spicy, and minty. Bitter, yeasty, lemon, and a maltiness. jcr (2784) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Bottle. Gold body with a frothy, off-white head, Slowly diminishing. Aroma of spice, flowers, perfume, toasted grain. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter, a bitterness than dominates the finish. Medium body, watery texture, moderate carbonation. Lots of flowers and perfume in the taste. There’s also some fruitiness and citrus, especially orange and peach. A bit of tartness and funk. Reminds me of Victory Helios without the brett.

Bottle from Rehills in Jesmond. Hazy pale golden with strong lemon and bubblegum flavours, vanilla, mint? and slight sourness on the finish. Very unusual and very good. GnarlyGnome (673) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Pale, light golden with a white head. It’s musty, and citrusy in the aroma which plays together well in the flavor. It’s nice... Definitely refreshing.
