halfonit (1365) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Pours cloudy yellowish brown with a brief white head. Aroma is of yeast, toffee and some citrus. Medium body with a fizzy carbonated bite. Taste is of oats, banana, citrus, honey and cloves. Finishes with a bitter rye taste. A creative composition of grains but not really my style. Tmoney99 (14460) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2015
Bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus, spice and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet citrus flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectation where met. alexsdad06 (10389) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2015
22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, fruits, Belgian yeast, light spice, pretty one dimensional, for a saison this is missing the funky, grassy, character and is too sweet. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2015
22oz bottle, thanks to tmoney99 for sharing. Kind of hazy orange color. Off-white bubble head, some decent bits of lace. Caramel malt up front, some orange citrus, mild spice. A touch of rye in there. More sweet taste, much sweeter than I’d like for a saison. Light to moderate bitter. Kind of zesty. Mild tanginess. A bit musty overall, slight metallic. Doesn’t taste fresh, maybe? But it’s bottled August 2014, not that old. Medium to bigger body. kind of slick. Light carbonation. I wanted to like this one, but I did not. Didn’t finish my sample. Would have hated to have been stuck with the whole bottle. drsordr (2658) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2015
Bottle shared by Tmoney99 pour hazy dark orange with minimal white head. Nose light spice, some fruit, and light dank some sweet malt. Taste starts with sweet and saison but quickly transition to grainy malt. Minimal spice on the finish. Not as sweet or spicy as most saison.

Bottle at Au Trappiste, BernBov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 6, 2015
Hazy golden color, small head. Sweet aroma, some vegetable soup too in it, celery. Good body strength, dry mouthfeel, the malt is not expressive, but it has enough spice character; strong bitterness; it still has traces of vegetables in the final.
Not fully convincing.
from Au Trappiste - hazy blond-orange beer with a modest foam left; light funky aroma of oranges; a bit cheesy; full-bodied, subtle yet fair carbonation, quite sourish; light residual swetness; aftertaste of blood oranges and almost metallic (I should have trusted fiulin from the beginning on...) thewolf (12592) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle. Pours murky amber with a small, creamy, off-white film head. Aroma has sweet malts,, light caramel, leaves, soft pepper. Medium carbonation, fine dry and light creamy mouthfeel.
