Hard to keep this one from gushing....once I got it in the glass it settled down to a nice aromatic saison. Funky barnyard, coriander, and lemon are all present, with a crisp refreshing finish. Would have scored this a little higher were it not for the gushing. mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - MAY 13, 2007

12 oz. bottle: Pours a cloudy golden color with a frothy off-white head that is mostly lasting leaving nice lacing. Has a spicy yeasty aroma. Spicy flavor is well balanced with a hint of citrus leaving a dry, sticky, peppery finish. Very refreshing! kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2007

Bu en fut à Dieu du Ciel (12 oz). Blonde pale et brumeuse, mini collet avec un peu de dentelle. Jolie arome d’agrume malte avec quelque épices. Un goût légé d’agrume faiblement sûrette, arrière goût sec.

Pours cloudy pale orange with a lasting white head, good lacing. Nice mild aroma with light funkiness, grains, and dried fruit. Taste is full of citrus and wheat, a small touch of sourness and balanced yeast. Solid hop bittering. Body is frothy, creamy. I’m always impressed by this brewery. Very solid beer.

Very Orvally. I mean it. If Orval had a little brother, this is what it would taste like (and yes, I do realize there is Petite Orval, but I’ve never had it. So unless you’re planning on sending me one, quit harshing my mellow, man). It had a lot of the same aroma and flavors - herbal, with a touch of sour but not overpowering. Perhaps a bit discombobulated, but extremely tasty Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2007
Fresh 12-oz. bottle: Hazy-orange hue; delicate head; yeasty nose; light and delicate palate. Malts were on the weak side; light grains and fermenting bread dough. Yeast aromas were pleasant and clean. Quite a bit of zingy hops and esters; tart lemon and faint orange; white pepper. Dry and light finish is followed by a lingering bitterness. Overall, I thought it was a refreshing and pleasant beer, albeit very light bodied, and weak in the malt department.
