This beer had very nice lacing and was a cloudy brassy golden pour with a lasting creamy head. Very attractive beer. This had a lot of yeast in the aroma with a slight twinge of alcohol and bitter fruit. Almost a cake batter sweetness to it as well. The flavor is crips with an astringent/bitter citrus finish of hops to it. Palate was indeed effervescent with a decent body to it. Overall a very tastey summertime brew. I am a fan.

Cloudy yellow coloring. Taste is highly carbonated with some prominate spices, maybe clove. Refreshing and easy to drink, but complicated enough to really enjoy. Reminded me of a wheat beer with a little more flavor. spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2004
My first saison, and I’m very impressed. Great beer. Took about 10 minutes to fully pour this beer. A light, hazy orange/golden appearance with a huge cream colored head. Good lacing. Aroma was very yeasty, with slight alcohol and fruits. Flavor kinda bursted out. Tasted of oranges, yeast, hops. Good mouthfeel. loomis (43) - Ohio, USA - JUL 19, 2004
Nice golden color. Nice bubbles. Nice white fluffy head. Hides its alcohol almost completely, and that says a lot, seeing as how it is 7.5%. A little fruity. Overall very nice. Great artwork on the label also. Quetzalcoatl (153) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 18, 2004
12 oz bottle. Strong yeasty aroma and taste. The body was a murky yellow, with a decent head. I didn’t really go for the taste though, some strange off-flavors that seemed to hinder the taste of the brew. Perhaps a bad bottle…

Decent though it seemed to be lacking in malt. Light with candy sugar richness. Enjoyable but not in my opinion all that amazing. jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Golden color with a big, creamy white head. Aroma of sour fruit and coriander.
Tastes slightly sweet and spicy with
a touch of coriander and sour oranges. Hangover (1152) - oxford, Georgia, USA - JUL 11, 2004
Hazy golden color, with a lasting white head. Aroma of wheat, coriander, spice and orange. Medium bodied with active carbonation on the palette. I think the flavor falls a bit short. Has a nice spiciness, with cloves and coriander. Citrus towards the finish, which is dry, and somewhat bitter. I caught a nice blast of the alcohol however, which was unexpected, but had to mention it. Complex aroma and flavor, just perhaps a bit overdone. Still,. I would recommend giving it a try.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2010 Enormous lasting rocky white head over a pale golden, highly effervescent beer. Sweetish candi aroma, with apple notes, flowers, and a warm spiciness. Bright lemon and a touch of clove as well. There is a lot of fresh herbal grassiness along with fruity pear character. The flavour is delicious with spicy wheaty flavour, apple/pear, citrus and lingering clove. The finish has a lingering Belgian malt dryness. It’s substantially better than I remember it and a really tasty saison. AlabastorJones (815) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 6, 2004
nice foggy gold appearance, frothy white head, tart fruit aroma, sweet flavor, banana, hop bitters, hint of alcohol, nice smooth rolling mouthfeel, the guntah says "very carbonated".
