Aroma is very much that of a wit. Fruity overtones mixed with a definate alcohol flavor. Nice smooth finish with an aftertaste of bananas. All in all an exceptional beer.

My first saison, and a rather nice experience. Pours a brilliant yellow with a delicate, frothy head. Champange-like carbonation rising straight up the glass, and intense lacing make this beer rather beautiful. Aroma is a delicate floral hop aroma, kind of witbeer-ish. Taste hits very yeasty up front, spicy all the way through, with a strong alcohol kick and some nice mid breadiness, and the palate couldnt be better. I poured this in the wrong glass though. Shouldve used my giganto-head accomidating Piraat tulip!

The hoppy fruit spice aroma didnt carry over into a complex tasting experience. It drank too carbonated and with an evident alcohol taste. Not as good as its more potent brother but still a worthy drinking experience at much less of a cost than most other Belgium offerings.

Hazy golden honey hue, with a big rocky white head, with good lacing, yeasty, apples and citrus fruits notes, pale malt aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with yeasty, hint of oakiness, fruity, earthy hops, pale malt, floral ops, leading to a hoopy citrusy leafy finish.

Deliciousness. From a bottle. Vanilla and lemon overtones. Much better than other "Belgian" style beers Ive had recently, and more palatable. Darling little sayings on the bottle, really. Their label is like Celestial Seasonings for beer drinkers.

Poured from a bottle. Orange beer with a very thick white head. The cork popped off violently. Musky aroma with a hint of sour fruit. Shour citruisy flavor with a slightly sweet finish. Very interesting beer.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2011 I have only a limited familiarity with this brewer but have been getting into them a bit recently. Sampled this one on draft at the State College beer festival. It poured a medium golden color with a large creamy off white head. The aroma is sweet and fruity. The flavor is yeasty, bready and has a sour tang of light fruits. There is a nice Belgian candy sugar element coursing through this beer. I think I will definitely be having this one again.
