Light straw, with a four inch head. Aroma of raw grains, with a bit of sourness. Tastes like old socks. This is awful.

rederic (3307) - montral, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2007
Cloudy yellow gold hue, with a frothy white head, yeasty, fruity nose of star fruit and lime, with a juicy floral hop citrusy accent, a subtle tartness and mustiness, even some brettanomyces, great! in a good way, in my case, with a mild hop leafiness accent in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a zesty, yeasty, citrusy lime character, with a nice spicy herbal hop note, with an acidic fruitiness, hint of wild yeast tartness, a bit grassy, leading towards a citrus, dry leafiness hop bitterness finish.

troopie (2301) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAR 18, 2007
Bottle. Hazy golden pour with huge white head. Frothy like a Belgian saison. Spice aroma, not full. Taste of citrus, spice and hop, not much malt. Spicy, citrus finish, again much like a Belgian.

BigBeer45 (1469) - Michigan, USA - MAR 18, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2009 12 oz. Bottle, pours a hazy yellow like a golden lemon juice with honey and orange scribbles, a huge head of white foam appeared on top, I found with aging the bottle the head was subdued a little, the bubbles still are thick, foamy and dense though even after storing for about six months, sour citrus scent, a faint malt fragrance, lemon, grapefruit and orange fragrances, faint spices, yeast and wood scents, I noticed a funkiness on the nose after the ale approached room temperature, taste is sour, tart, grapefruit and orange citrus with grape skins on the tongue, faint wood flavor, faint soft malt flavor and pepper in the finish, very dry on the palate, mouth feel is very bubbly, lively and playful on the palate.

muenster (345) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 16, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2007 Bottle. Kicked off NachlamSie and Is Thursday tasting. Good thing too, this beer is made of nuances and subtleties that would have been lost after a stronger beer. Anyhow, pours hazy orange/gold with some solid floaties that sink to the bottom quickly. The aroma is spicy and warm, with sweet fruity notes coming through as well. Flavor is a nice tart lemon followed by the warm spicy bready finish, throughout, it is mild, but enjoyable.

illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 13, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2007 Bottle from Allaboutstout. Thanks Steve! Pours hazy golden amber with torrent carbonation bubbles. Nice super tight foamy white head that coats the glass. Smell of sour apples, pear, spices, and lemon zest. Medium light mouthfeel and fine carbonation. Initial flavor is sweet, that transitions to a mild tart middle, with notes of yeast, cider, honey, and apples. Finish is semi dry, with some spiciness (clove) and lingering dustiness. Thirst quenching. This beer is soft on the palate while still coming across with complexity and flavor. Very well done beer.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - MAR 11, 2007
Bottle from drewbeerme. Light copper and somewhat on the murky side. Frothy white head that threatens to overflow the glass but decides last second to retreat. Very spicy saison aroma with an earthy note. High carbonation. Subtle and pleasant with some apple and grape flavors. Slightly tart. Brilliant blend of over-the-top and subtle. I love this beer for being what it is and not trying to over sell or over-do.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2007
Poured from bottle, murky golden color, huge head taht lasted a while...Some carbonation in glass, left some great lacing...Smelled to me of sweet grass and apples. I really wanted to like this beer, but I started with a darker beer and that might have been the problem here. This one ended up tasting a little watery to me...Definitely tasted organge and lemons, apples, very cider like...With a hoppy finish. It was good, just a bit weak for me...
