COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer you are holding is unique. A special strain of yeast and a warm fermentation produces a beer of exceptional flavor and aroma. An extended secondary maturation and bottle conditioning ensures all these unique qualities are preserved and evolve over time. Serve at 50F in a tulip glass.

What to expect
This tawny orange beer pours with a rocky white head. Aromas of passion fruit, tangerine, and black pepper hit the nose. Flavor is a cascade of orange, lemon verbena, ginger and pepper. And in a second it is gone, finishing with a dry and lingering bitterness that awaits another sip.

Cellaring Information
Store upright in a dark dry place at cellar temperature (ideally at 50 degree). Cellar limit is 2 years.

Straight forward saison that had nothing special about it. Grassy, light in taste. Cloudy body. Heavily carbonated. Nothing wrong but would like it to be a bit dryer.

750 ml bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a mostly clear golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma is fruity citrus, herbal, light funk, pale malts with a dry grassy character. The flavor has much of the same characteristics; citrus, grass, funk, dry malts with a mild honey sweetness. Solid, but not spectacular.

RABinCO (1508) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 2, 2013
Bottle from adnielsen! Tasted this at the brewery before but didnt rate, so glad to have this chance! Poured into a tulip. Hazy golden head with a huge pillow of white head. Little bit of sheeting. Aroma is tart and sweet with a good dose of pepper and a bit of funk. Taste is pepper, orange, tart. Finishes slightly puckering and dry. Lasting tropical flavors.

Beerman6686 (6588) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2013
This poured a murky yellow color with a white head. Aroma was spicey, peppery, and light grains. Flavor was similar, light tart and spicey, grassy but a bit bland and similar to a lot of others in the style.

Iphonephan (6719) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - MAR 14, 2013
From a 75 cl bottle shared in Breckenridge CO. Pours a hazy gold with a massive snow white head. Lemon notes in the nose. Bread dough, lemon and orange zest and peppery note. Quite nice.

Golden with white head. Aroma is a bit funky. Taste is bland, a bit tart, a bit funky, but not that tasty. Not impressed.

Doofgoblin (513) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - MAR 1, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 This is awesome! Aroma is citrus, floral, hint of banana with some yeast notes as well. Its a cloudy golden pour with a white head that doesnt linger but clings to the glass. Taste is awesome. Fruity, yeasty, smooth and sweet with some slight sour funk notes. It really matures on your palate. The strange sour funk"ness" is what makes this taste so interesting. Its refreshing and complex at the same time. Love it.

cthomas2390 (228) - Colorado, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Clear straw pour. Estery barnyard yeast aromas which continue thru the taste. Ends reasonably clean and dry. Not my favorite, but very on-style for a saison.

The beautiful orange look pour with some foam on top of it. The taste is very fruity which I am not fond of fruity beers but this someone got me puzzled and interested to taste more. Not bad for first try on that beer.

Loved it. Flavorful yet light with a touch of lemon, pepper, lavender, and citrus. Everything is subtle and great. Creamy mouthfeel with some efforvescence that is perfect.
