Thanks to coldbrewky for this bottle!
Aroma:Smells slightly fruity, floral, peppery.
Appearance:Pale gold in color. Lots of thick white head (big bubbles). very visible carbonation. Low head retention though.
Taste:The foretaste is peppery and a little bitter. This flavor fades and becomes more earthy through the midtaste, and then surprisingly changes to a sweet fruit-punch like flavor with no hop bitterness in the aftertaste.
Palate:Light body, alcohol is well hidden. Very high carbonation.
Overall:I really enjoy the flavor on this one, it’s full of delightful complexity. This has to be one of the best Saisons that I’ve ever had.

Это пиво вкусное. я, конечно, рекомен& его всем, что любит хорошую Craft пива! DenisLD (87) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 31, 2010
Hazy amber/orange body, with a RICH white head. This was a very foamy beer, so the head took a while to settle down. Great head retention and lacing!
It’s virtually impossible to imagine a more complex saison smell. Flowers, lemon, apples and white grapes, caramel, grass, yeast, and toasted bread are just some of the aromas I got.
Wow, this beer’s taste is beyond being simply complex; there is so much going on, it’s even hard to list all the tasting notes one can get. Start out with a good moderate citrus hop bite (with some juicy grapefruit notes), then an apparent sweetness comes through, together with fruity (apples, white grapes, gooseberries, pear) and flowery notes. Some good toffee notes. Some funky yeastiness. Some vanilla-like notes. The finish is a bit dry and slightly bitter. Once the beer warms up, I got a very pronounced peach flavour from it. Absolutely amazing!
Medium-bodied. Some lively carbonation. Very soft on the palate overall, this beer coats the mouth very nicely. No real alcohol taste to speak of at first, but as the beer warms up it can be felt just a little bit.
Drinks like a charm. Being quite juicy and fruity, this beer begs for you to drink it swig by swig. But do not succumb to its charms, take your time! mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAR 25, 2013
This and Red Barn (Lost Abbey) are my two favorite saisons. Jack is a smooth, balanced delight. Floral hops dance under your nose. Peppery-focused grassy and floral hop notes sweetly permeate your taste buds with a nice mouthfeel no less. The pepper lingers, and the sweetness is joined by a slight bitterness. Just wonderful.

프리티 띵즈 비어 앤 에일 프로젝트 - 잭 디오르 6.5% ABV 올해 마신 최고의 맥주 중 하나. 화이트 IPA적 요소 위로 화음처럼 깔리는 신선한 레몬의 향.
맥주의 장르 경계를 허무는 뛰어난 맥주. 집시양조하면 한국에는 미켈러가 가장 잘 알려져 있지만 개인적으로 미켈러 보다 더 높게 치는 미국의 집시 양조 프로젝트.

Bottle pours hazy dull copper with a big giant and pillow like head and much lace. The aroma is spicy and yeasty. The flavor is nice and sweet, spiced, yeasty, some passion fruit, and some finishing hops to change it all up in the end. The palate is pretty rich and lets you know it is there. Overall, very nice. erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 13, 2011
Clean golden appearance. Rose water, fresh hops, citrus and some champagne yeast. Drinkable, tasteful and just loads of flavour. Absolutely great. (At De Molen tasting) Lukaduke (3206) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a big frothy head... Aromas are bright citrus, grass,dough, lemon zest and light malts. On the palate the flavors really come together and brighten the aromas into a refreshing quenching saison that has a great astringency but never goes to over board with a nice light malty pilsner type backbone. Great Saison ! Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Bottled Nov. 2011 Great rendition of a farmhouse ale. Aromas and flavors of dough and yeast, with tons of lemon and spice layered on top. Soft, velvety mouthfeel, with silky carbonation. Great balance of flavors, bitterness, sourness and carbonation. A good brew.
