On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy, brighter orange colored body with an inch thick, dense and creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is pretty fruity with some juicy citrus tangerines, pears, sweeter florals, soft spices, yeasty earth, a light banana, and some sweeter malts with a light caramel and grain. Flavor is similar. Lots of juicy fruits up front with a good amount of sweet tangerines, oranges, pears, melons, and floral fruits. Nice yeasty spice and earth to balance along with a light grass, some banana, and a touch of bubblegum. Some grainy, medium sweet malts add to a rounded balance. Finishes dry and fruity with a nice spicing and light-medium bitterness. Lengthy, spicy and citrusy aftertaste following a medium body and fairly lively carbonation that works well with the juicy fruits and spices. Overall, a nice saison. Dry and balanced with a pretty cool juicy fruitiness. Nice malt sweetness to round things out making this very enjoyable. Good beer. JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2013
Draft at Mikkeller Bar. Hazy golden, small white head. Spicy, fruity aroma with notes of hay, herbs, yeasty phenols and noble hops. Medium sweet malty, slightly astringent, peppery with a dry, medium bitter slightly metallic finish. Nice.

The beer has a really nice golden hue with some haziness to it, well carbonated and has minimal lacing. The smell has some great floral notes, some decent spiciness with a hint or citrus/orange. The decent is really well balanced, minmial spice and mild sweetness and holds on really well. The mouthfeel afterwards mildly lingers with some mild bitterness and sweetness. Overall, this is really well balance of floral, sweetness, cirtus, spice, and tips the scales between a saison and potentially a triple.

22 oz. bomber, $10 at Square One, Chicago’s near South.Poured into a tall flute, it shows off a light amber or slightly orange body with thing layer of foam atop. Has a big malty smell with warming spices that I’m picking up at arm’s length while still wrestling with the menu. Taste is big malts with the expected esters of a warm ferment, The hop bitterness just slightly curls the edge of my tongue, and a note of fruit and funk thread through as well. There’s a yeasty outline in the taste too, even before I swirl in the yeast dregs form the bottom of the bottle. malrubius (2985) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle dated 12/5/12. Orange gold with ring. Mild tart citrus and sweet peachy with some "in its own syrup" sweetness. Orange sweet fruitiness slightly overripe with finishing overripe orange peel rind gritty herbal bitterness and slight bitter fruity herbal cloy. Thick sticky body totally inappropriate (IMHO). Steers clear of cough syrup but the body is all wrong. Not good. Not sure I’ll finish. Niko100 (2982) - Chicago, New York, USA - DEC 9, 2013

Draft at kedzie. From notes. Malty and bready with a little apple. A little on the fizzy side. Decent, but not really my style. bpreo (2903) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 28, 2012
A very nicely crafted Saison. The popularity of Farmhouse Ale’s are on the rise.
