COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Thanks to beerlando for this - hazy orange beer - the aroma is equal parts sweet and tart, with notes of orange marmalade and citrus pulp - semi-tart orange flavor, with just enough candi sugar sweetness to cut it - very pulpy and earthy, with a light, refreshing herbal character - very soft, yet lively at the same time - Im impressed by this brewer so far.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2007
Bottle shared by EDA. Very nice label had perhaps more excited for the beer than I shouldve been. Mild hops in the aroma, bread, a touch of molasses. Lemon, rye bread, belgian yeasts taste... very melloe, not much going on, and exceptionally thin. I kept smelling this and tasting this trying to get more out of it but no matter how hard I dug I couldnt find anything. Its not that it was one-dimensional, more than I just couldnt really find anything. There were also no discernible flaws, just a lack of character.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - OCT 18, 2007
Bottle from Beerlando. Mostly clear amber with a small beige head. The nose is lightly sweet, vinous and floral with caramel and golden raisins. Flavor is light sweet with cotton candy, toffee, raisins and herbal hops. Medium body is very soft with very light carbonation. Just a bit more attenuation and higher carbonation and this would be outstanding.

JoeMcPhee (9408) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2007
Bottle shared by someone (it was getting late). Deep amber beer with a thin white head. Aroma is honeyish, some herbal and earthy character. Surprisingly light malts. Flavour is quite soft and fruity, some nice herbal notes, light mint and soft spiciness. A touch of light gruit-like mintiness. Lingering herbal spiciness. Very similar house character to the saison, but doesnt come across as characterful as that beer did.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 23, 2007
750ml bottle courtesy of Dragonstout. Pours copper with a white head. Smells of cloves, bananas, citrus, caramel, molasses and spice. Tastes of spice, dry malt, caramel, some residual sugar. Well balanced and mellow with a clove like finish. Nice!

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - NOV 3, 2007
Bottle: Bronze pour topped by a consistent white head. Nose is a mix of herbal notes with plummy/pruney fruits. The flavor is slightly more developed witha vanilla sweet hint in the background, accompanied by a fruity hint of prunes. The late palate has some residual herbal/mild spices. Simple, but decently crafted Belgian style Strong Ale.

Floback (550) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 20, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2007 750 ml bottle courtesy of SoLan. Thanks bro!! Much anticipation upon opening, as I loved the Saison Athene by this brewery. Pours an appealing honey-orange body underneath a small white rim that disappears quickly. Nose qualities are similar to a saison: honey, citrus, and a subtle yeast skunkiness. Mouth flavors are almost subtler than the nose with similar notes of honey, estery spices, pear, and apple cider. Soft/medium carbonation, medium body. Extremely drinkable; no trace of the 8% ABV in the palate or character. A great beer.

Bottled shared buy notalush, I also have one in a trade from Beerlando. This brewer is really good and I cannot wait to keep drinking his stuff. It pours an orange-copper color, completely murky with no clarity. Aroma is dill (bastard Joe threw that in my head) or more like its smells are fresh herbs that are green yet rejuvenating. In general it s springtime on your nose with yeasty (dough sweetness) highlights. Taste is fresh and light sweetness of a Belgian Saison. Medium body but also very alive. Its just so fun to drink. Its awesome in its simplicity, nice spices with a strong saison.

elmatador00 (519) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Courtesy of Dragonstout. Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Reminded me more of a Quad then a Strong Ale. Very sweet. Hints of caramel, candied sugar, molasses, dark fruits, spices. Finished sweet and carbonation danced on my tongue. Loved every sip of this beer.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - OCT 18, 2007
Bottle from SoLan- Slightly hazy bronze/copper color. Almost no head. Nose is apple ciderish, some dark fruit notes mix with yeasty esters. Drinking this suprises, Belgian style from Florida? Flavor actually hits most of the Belgian profile, the esters and sweet darker flavors are there and meld well together. Carbonation is just slightly lower than Id like. Finishes with vanilla and hints of spice.
