Pours deep amber into a snifter. Off-white head recedes to skim surface. Sour tropical fruit aromas. Sharp sour pencil shavings upfront turning quickly to rotting tropical vegetation. Lasting rotten sour vegetable finish. SanfordBrewer (1574) - Sanford, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2010

the floral complexity makes for interesting pairings. i had this with some smoked ribs and it was perfect. the fruitiness and floral character really latched onto to sweetness of the sauce and complimented the pork, while the high carbonation cut through the heaviness.
Pours reddish amber and lightly hazy with a thin fully receding off-white head. Notes of fragrant esters, perfume, and flowers. Full bodied with lively carbonation. BobLorb (3) - largo, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2010 does not count

750mL courtesy of Travlr via SeaBass. Pours a dirty/hazy orange with a thin beige head that has big bubbles/little retention/no lace. Sweet, musty, stale fruit aroma. Taste is boozy, spicy, dry, a little weird. Not much wild character. Travlr (24759) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 4, 2010

Pours clear copper color with huge white head. Toasted malts with spices and a floral aroma. Light malty flavor with spices and flowers. Medium body with lively carbonation. SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - APR 3, 2010
Cha-ching! I knew that this was more of a saison, despite being called a dubbel at the tasting. Amber with a frothy head. Lots of fruit and bret in the aroma, with a lemon-like acidity. The flavor is dry, but maintains a candy-caramel sweetness as well, and has lots of tangy fruit flavors. Light bodied with high carbonation. This was good right now, but I think some time in the bottle might give this a lot of character beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - APR 3, 2010
pours a murky orange color. good amount of spice. cannot detect the palmetto or hibiscus. refreshing and crisp with good amount of alcohol to it.
