From a bottle. Pours clear orange, tiny lasting head, sharp hops flavours, it grows on you.
Bottle - pours amber with a thin white head. Aroma is spice, malt and a bit of funk. Taste is dry ip front with a building citrus and spice finish. Mr_Pink_152 (5416) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2016
Bottle as gift. Rich golden colour with a white head. Aroma rich fruit, yeast, well balanced. Taste us light sweet, a touch sharp but fruity, love it. richlamb (18) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 4, 2015
They were sortof correct about the aroma.. "cant tell where one ends and the other begins".. because I sensed none of either. Nice amber colour, very restrained malty aroma. A slight richness in the grainy sweet malt character was about the limit of any Belgian character.
This is more like a light english amber or generic amber but with some yeast character could jump back to its style. motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 3, 2015
on tap at the happy wombat in newcastle. freshly tapped but didn’t seem that way. dark golden with a light haze and frothy head; messy aroma of turps and raw sugar; somewhat plain with very subdued yeast character, tastes as though raw sugar has been used instead of candi sugar, hints of plain flour and raw sugar crystals in the finish PalCabral (162) - SWEDEN - APR 8, 2015
Bottle from Coop, Trysil. Pretty much a poor saison. The low alcohol doesn’t help. One dimensional.

Bottle from Purvis. Aroma of herbs and resin. Pours a striking orange with good white foam. Taste biscuity, grains were very apparent - I almost expected to feel then in my mouth, before the herbal resin of the hops took over. Just the right bitterness. Very sessionable, certainly not simple, but not so complex that You don’t want to quaff in quantity. chefseanjudd (37) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2014
On tap at o’connels. Not a bad belgian pale, brilliant copper-orange colour with a thick, fluffy, white head which lasts to the end. Aroma is fruit and bread, ripe guava, pineapple, toasted white bread. Taste is sharp, light bitterness which is carried by a fair amount of carbonation. Light bodied and a dry finish.
I’ve tried this beer on two seperate occasions and found it to be slightly different each time, I think the first time was near the end of the keg though. ALLOVATE (3056) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 11, 2014
Whispily yeasted in appearance with a single stream of fine carbonation coming to atmosphere. The body a pastel orange in colour. Holds aloft a tidy, tight layer of white that manages minimal lacing. Little bit too much eggy fart on the nose linked with hints of pear drops, cloves and Band-aid like phenols, haybales, apple pulp and scented talcum powder. Dusty malt starts it off on the palate. Carbonation is high but fades towards the swallow. Medium light bodied with a dry finish. Low bitterness, grassy, light hop length with a hint of orange and lime peel. A touch of pear drop candy and lychee in late. Bottled it didn’t exactly rise my spirit, but I think this would be a gem brewery fresh on draught. Unsteady nose, average beer, but overall an easy drinking number. (33cL, BB 02/04/14, Liquor Baron’s Ocean Reef) omhper (25563) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 8, 2014
