3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle, best by Dec 2011. Clear burnt gold color with a small and fleeting head. Lots of spice in the nose and a little melon. Sweet and lightly bitter with a lasting spice/cotton candy finish. Medium carbonation and a medium-light body. Alcohol gives it a little heft though. A little bigger and sweeter than I like the style, and could definitely be hoppier. More like a spicy, sweet blond or tripel
Grainy and tart - weird dark fruit notes for the style, but enjoyable for sure. Just weird. oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Pours a hazy orangish/gold color. Aromas of tart fruit, bread, citrus, and yeasty. Flavor is malty/citrus. Leaves a yeasty orange aftertaste. beer-yum (1714) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 10, 2015
Grassy aroma in a hazy golden pour. Superb sour fruit flavour is a typically American take on the style (in-your-face). raymow (1668) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2015
bottled - Belgiany flavor and aroma. Orange-amber in color. Definitely drinkable, but not as good as expected - probably should try it again in the summer. Dacrza (980) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - FEB 8, 2015
DATE TASTED: February 8, 2015... GLASSWARE: La Fin du Monde tulip... OCCASION: watching the Grammys and waiting for more inclement weather... APPEARANCE: cloudy, light yellow body; creamy off-white head settles to a reasonably bubbly half-inch; ... AROMA: instant lemon grass and bubble gum; pepper, clove, and a bevy of hop varietals to tantalize ... PALATE: quite drinkable, with a smooth, rum-like warmth and comfort; the finish is dry but welcoming and lingering...TASTE: a dramatically packed burst of hops that evoke flowers and lemongrass; bubblegum, clove and anise (?) complicate the experience in a good way, with each sip invoking consideration; fruits like pear and apple arrive late in a loaded plate ...OVERALL: this was the beer I took to the 2003 trip to OBX, and all as well until I found a claw (!) in a bottle; still, a fantastic beer for the summer--and, not bad in the months leading up to the spring...

Pours a pale amber body with a medium head. Faint aroma of dough. Malty taste with sugar tones. More like an ordinary belgian ale than a saison.
