Sampled at BCTC 05 and again at Kennett 05. Pours a slightly hazy light copper with a nice tight pure white head. Aroma is yeasty and spicy with some saison-like funkiness and some light sea-salt character. Now this is a saison- much better than the hennepin. Lots of funky barnyard flavors as it warms. Nice smooth finish. PWalk (337) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2005
OT, @ Kennett BF: Spicy aroma with yeast. Flavor proved fruitier with a good feel on the palate. Extremely drinkable and only wish I could have growlered it. hopdog (12953) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2005
On tap at the Kennett Square Brew Fest (connoisseur session). I was looking forward to getting a taste of this one! Poured a hazy/cloudy golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of spices, leather, yeast and citrus. Tastes of citrus, spices, and leather. Iwent back for more of this one. willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JUL 22, 2005
07.16.05 BCTC, many samples, then two full glasses. Clouded dark golden, ample, foamy, lasting, sticky white head. At some point, I think I actually paid for a couple glasses of this stuff, it was that good. Aroma is spiced up like Thai food, farm, cut grass, and my hiking basket. Flavor adds more of the barnyard, but subtly, and there’s more than enough body to carry off the easy going sour and spicy finish. Dangerously drinkable indeed. I do hope I get to sample it again.

(Draught) Sampled at the Belgium Comes To Cooperstown 2005 in Cooperstown, NY. Pours a cloudy, golden body with a foamy, white head. Nose and flavour of hemp, cherry and hops. An underlying farmy flavour is attractive but I didn’t fall in love like many others.

Tap at Ommegang 2005. Cloudy yellow, white head. Hoppy spicy aroma, very subtle funk. Hoppy malty flavors. Very subtle sourness. Spicy and fantastic. This should get bottled... axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2005
At brewery. By far my favorite from this brewer. The Ommegang signature earthiness is still there, but balanced out very well with a sweeter citrus flavor. Very drinkable. mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - JUL 17, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2007 On tap at Ommegang fest 2006 . Poured a hazy orange color with a little head. Very hoppy citrusy aroma. Earthy and yeasty. Malty and hoppy flavor. Dry tasting. Spicey. Decent. Very drinkable.
Well balanced beer. rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 17, 2005
BCTC. Cloudy orange, yellowish head. Nose is lightly fruity with some brett funk. Fruity with an odd oily malt character. Dryish lemony finish. Nice. They should bottle this one! egajdzis (6693) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2007 Poured a hazy golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweaty gym socks, hay, brett, citrus, perfume, and yeast. Taste of citrus, spices, orange peel, lots of brett, light lemony hoppiness, and some peppery alcohol.
