From tap. Pours hazy orange with a lacing white head. Delicate citrus and grapefruit hoppy aroma. Milky like flavour, seems off. Flavour is a mix of intense hops bitterness, aroma hops and milky lacto note. Off, yet pleasant.

Ungstrup (37300) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2006
An unclear orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with quite a lot of hops, as well as a good fruit presence. The flavor is very fruity with notes of mango, oranges, peaches, on a sweet background that also includes notes of caramel. The end is dry and bitter with a slight dusty touch.

[email protected] Hazy orange colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is wheat, earth and some spices. Flavour is very much the same, but fruits and slight yeasty notes are also there.

anders37 (26194) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2009
Draft @ NCBC, Fort Bragg, CA. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Has a fruity spicy and slightly yeasty citrus aroma. Sweetish fruity and slightly bitter yeasty flavor with some hints of citrus. Has a fruity spicy yeasty citrus finish.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a hazy pale golden with a thick, white head with good retention. Aroma of yeast and banana. Rather light body - I never would’ve guessed this to be 7.3% ABV. Fruity and fresh with notes of yeast. Some sulphur in the finish. A decent wheat beer, that’s what it is. 300406

omhper (24970) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2007
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Cloudy golden, firm head. Aroma of orange and coriander. Sweet, yeasty and fruity. Medium-full bodied with dense, lightly spritzy mouthfeel. Citric and minerally. Yeasty bitter finish. Full flavoured, but just a bit edgy.

Leighton (21085) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2010
Tap at Pony Bar. A nice Saison. Pours a hazy, orange-gold with a soft, pure-white head. Nose is funky yeast, bubblegum and light fruits. Flavor is moderately funky - just the right amount for me. Crisp and clean on the finish. Very refreshing and tasty.

Hazy blond color; big creamy head. Some aroma of coriander and oranges. Good mouthfeel, dry malt flavor, sweet, spicy, with a dynamic orange touch. Very good (a sweeter and fruiter Saison).

2006-04-30, corked Bottle, as Whole Foods Silver Jubilee 25th Anniversary Ale, 5-3-6-3-12=29
Muddy golden color. Strange aroma, flowery. Very dry malty taste, some fruitness and resins maybe from the hops, high bitterness with orange peel. Drinkable and refreshing, but quite odd.
