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.

kevinator (2171) - The Colony, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2012
A very nice Saison. Nice golden color with a slight fizzy head. Fruity notes that were predominantly citrus. Palate was smooth and crisp. Tastes of subdued lemon and orange. Ginger was also present after it lingered in the mouth. There is a quick bitterness that makes the finish dry. Nice and refreshing.

erikaraeb (51) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 23, 2017
Sweet aroma with taste to match. Almost a sweet Belgian blonde. No funk or sourness. Sweetness makes this one rather one-dimensional.

Cloudy golden orange with a white head. Tropical notes, spice, earth, light coriander, sweet bright fruit. Really nice saison.

solidfunk (8640) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 3, 2017
Florals and good balance. Orange pour with good head and lacing. Sweet finish like Stanley Cup win. Nice balance. Bottle.

Cloudy gold with a pillowy white head. Spicy, citrusy aroma. Balanced flavor of fruit and spice, not tart. Dry finish.

wilnatp (692) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2017
Tap. Aroma and taste of a wheat beer. Some slight citrus and pepper on the nose. In my humble opinion, I dont think this is a good representation of a Saison style.

mar (5380) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 4, 2017
Gold with a white head. Nose is dry, earth, funk, grass and herbs. Smooth palate, earth, herbs, florals, spices, and dry finish.

euniceradio (524) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2017 On tap. Pours clouded straw gold, good white head. Aroma of peach, bubblegum, floral and yeast funk. Taste of same with some lemon zest, earth, soap and soda water. Mouthfeel is mod for style with heavy carb. Almost that of seltzer. Finish is slightly funky for style. Expected more yeast influence for style. More hop bitter in finish.

pinkzambia (1931) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 10, 2016
Tap @ Angels Trumpet Ale House: Cloudy gold with a fresh yeast aroma. Banana peels. Smooth flavor and true saison instead of the popular sour/saison mix.

jonno (2732) - JAPAN - AUG 28, 2016
Very straight forward Saison. Doesnt have the quality or character of a Fantome or Dupont. If this is their top offering I see no need to delve further in to their line up. Solid beer, but there are many, many better examples.

Very sweet hoppy. Very forward French yeast. Smooth enjoyable. Tangy. Smooth wow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
