Sample from a bottle at DLD ’11. Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a medium sized fluffy white head. The aroma is orange citrus, hay, funk, Brett, yeast and some floral notes. The flavor has a great blend of the juicy citrus with orange zest, Brett, funk, hay, and hints of spicy hops. I was shocked to see this was 10%, it is too easy to drink.

Bottle 361 pours a clear golden orange with a large off-white head. Aroma of Brett, hops, bready dry wheat malt, and lots citrus. Very tart, strong hits of Brett, and oranges, with dry bitter hops. Very enjoyable! JBPortland (1564) - Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA - MAY 24, 2014

Pours a clean golden orange color with two fingers of white foam. Lots of citrus punch, with tangerine, citrus pith layers of wet vinous barrel flavors. A touch boozier than expected with some funky barnyard complexity balancing the creamy cereal malt backbone. Hints of vanilla, stonefruit and soft brett influence. Dry finish. jtclockwork (17284) - , New Jersey, USA - MAR 18, 2012

Bottle shared by Scott at the willblake’s back in NJ tasting. Poured a hazy bright yellow body with an average sized foamy bright white head. Aroma of cat piss, old rotting oranges, wet toast, some tropical fruit and funk. Medium body with a dry finish and soft carbonation. Flavor of lots of citrus rind, touch of litter box, spolied tropical fruit, funk and a touch of sourness. Good beer that really is like nothing I’ve ever had.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2012 Provided by Matt for our Hill Farmstead tasting, thanks Matt! Pours a cloudy tangerine with a half fingers worth of effervescent white head. Nose is packed full of citrus and earthiness, does kind of resemble a mimosa. Flavor definitely resembles orange juice and champagne, it also has the earthiness of a saison...very tasty. Spritzy carb with moderate acidity, a moderate finish and mouthfeel. Pretty damn good beer, definitely unique. The orange character is so prominent here, enjoyed it quite a bit. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Pour at Scott’s saison tasting, big thanks for this. Pour out of waxed 750 mL bottle is hazy yellow-orange with white head, aroma has big champagne notes, lemon, vanilla, biscuit bread, nice wine and funky must, some citrusy orange with a hint of orange peel. Taste is orange, white grape and champagne, hints of biscuit, lemon, more white wine in the finish with a slight spicy note, fine carbonation and full on the palate.

Bottle at our summer Saison tasting. Crazy thick red wax was tough to get thru but managed with a sawzall and a blowtorch. Shared all around with the crew. Poured into my HF wine glass with a cloudy golden hue. Offered up tons of carbonation and an aromatic fluffy head. First whiffs were of a pretty funky brew for a saison - with hints of straw, citrus and orange peel on the nose. Flavors were bready and slightly herbal, with a citrusy / lemon tingle and a drying finish. Soft on the palate. Very nice summer brew and a treat to try. brokensail (16648) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Thanks for sharing this, Joe. Pours a hazy yellow color with a tall white head. A really nice tartness of lemon on the nose. Plenty of wood, a bit of white wine, some peach, grapefruit, and a nice musty funk. The flavor is quite citric and has a nice tartness to it. Lightly funky and woody. White wine flavor, a bit of bread, straw, and a crisp, dry finish.
