Braudog (6448) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Draft at the Birch. Much darker than I’d anticipated, fairly solid orange. The aroma is full-on sour, also completely unexpected. But it drinks with a funky farmhouse character that’s all up front; virtually nothing remains in the oddly watery finish. (#4820, 11/10/2012)

PhillyCraft (6274) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2016
Bottle from Adam, hazy orange with small white head and nice lace. Notes apple cider, ginger, grass, lightly acidic. Fruit. Medium bodied. An interesting saison but not my favorite

Excalibur123 (375) - Soria, SPAIN - NOV 25, 2016
Vierte amarillo anaranjado con pequeña cabeza de espuma blanca de ligera retención, aromas a manzana verde, uva blanca, naranja, levadura, especias y galleta; en boca entrada ligera, refrescante y especiada con ligero amargor, notas ligeramente ácidas, cuerpo medio ligero con carbónico medio, retrogusto ligeramente dulce y seco, agradable cerveza, fácil de beber y acorde a su estilo.

SylvainCFC (95) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 31, 2016
Robe orange, ambrée. Très trouble, brumeuse, avec nuages de bulles très fines. Très peu de mousse, blanche, mauvaise tenue. Nez très épicé de curaçao, orange, poivre et gingembre très perceptible. Bouche d’attaque plutôt neutre, douce avec une fine acidité citronnée. Les notes épicées se révèlent alors, avec la douceur de l’orange et du curaçao en avant-plan. Le gingembre et le poivre assèche la bouche. Touche claire de levure. Très peu d’amertume même en fin de bouche. Finale abrupte. Texture très aqueuse et peu carbonatée, peu de corps. Bière assez rafraîchissante malgré son biais sucré.

Oranje bier zonder schuim. Smaak is licht zuur en licht fruitig met iets van citroen, abrikoos.

Klimaet (2135) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2016
Bottle shared @ Ølbutikken. Pours dark hazy orange with a small white head. Aromas of salmiak, peppery, yoghurt, berries, esters. Taste is light sour, estery, straw, citrussym

mcberko (14999) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 15, 2016
330mL bottle, pours an opaque orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out Belgian yeast and earthy notes. Flavour is quite tart, with some stale notes, some pepper and earthy notes. This is pretty bad - definitely some infected notes here.

luttonm (4923) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Bottle in Rome. Hazy orange. Sweet, sewer funk. Not good. Warm and souring. Poor infection, gushing flavor. Shame.

Shark_Pants (649) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 10, 2016
330ml bottle from International Beer Collector. Clear sunset orange colour with generous off-white head and plenty of carbonation. Sweet and interesting funky aromas. The taste has lemon drop sweetness, some acetic sourness, bier de garde type maltiness, earthy hop flavour combined with funky notes creates a muddiness. Medium bodied and not as crisp as expected. Not bad but seems muddled and a little disappointing.

rdb84 (564) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2016 33cl. Absolutely beautiful dark orange color with yellow hue, murky, perfect carbonation from bottom to top, medium but stable and lasting head. Perfection. Aroma: candy sugar (reminds of Dolle Brouwers beers), curacao, anise, orange peel, white wine note, faint yeast note. It is borderline alcoholic, but the fruity tones win. Taste: follows aroma, starts nice and crisp with citrus and orange peel, curacao and anise sensation in the back of the mouth. Medium bitter development with some light malty notes, candy sugar. Finish starts fruity with dried citrus fruits, but develops quite a long lasting bitterness where the fruity tones return and return and return. Some ginger lingers in the background. Wow. Lovely brew!

Muggus69 (2192) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAY 28, 2016
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 04/2017 Murky deep amber body, small creamy white head. Spicy nose - mixed peel, stewed fruits, earthy & woody spices, pepper, clove, bready malt. Moderate carbonation, body somewhat stodgy for a Saison, drying only out only slightly. Spicy body - star anise very apparent as it warms, clove, pepper, mixed peel, bread dough, herbs. Dry finish, subdued bitterness. Lacks the finesse of a good Saison
