Slightly cloudy, opaque orange with some accents of gray. Intensive fruity, flowery aroma. Some honey, some acidicity. Complex very interesting . jaymobrown (1845) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2002
Apple sour taste. Light color. Probably not the best choice after drinking an imperial stout, but the apple pie tart flavor was very interesting. Jokes (1455) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2003 I agree that this is a rather sweet and spicy saison. Dry and effervescent with a nice spicy bitter finish. Plenty of fruity and spicy sweetness throughout. A tasty beer that I crave more and more often. My, what a year can do to a person. 12/3/2002 3.6:Well, first off, this beer should get an extra point for me because it was full the brim. I mean, I had a few millimeters between the cap and the liquid. Everyone should fill the beers so full. I feel like a I get a good deal. Ok, but the real stuff about the beer. The aroma is mostly yeasty, with a hint of spice. Must and cobwebs are also distinguishable. Dry and effervescent, the beer feels great in the mouth. The flavors are of lightly sweet fruit, honey, cloves, and yeasty bread. The finish is light. A wonderful beer, however, I found it to be a bit too sweet for me.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2011 a gorgeous dirty blond standing there with thick bubbley head and a tart lemon-honey fragrance tainted with a delightful mildew and smothered in baking bread.. subtleness with creamy carmel and lemon encrusted honeycombs..sugary malts lost in wheatfields.. Sweet but bitter lingerings...On draft, this beer is mind bending. One of my favorite consistent saisons.
Re-rate...I’m boosting points for being so fucking awesome. dins (266) - Texas, USA - NOV 16, 2002

Has a cloudy golden colour with a huge white head. Head dies relatively quick. The aroma is yeasty, fat and spicy. Flavour is complex with lots of fruit characteristics. Has a bitter apple aftertaste. Very good beer. TAR (2802) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - NOV 1, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2003 330 ml; year unknown: Dimmed banana. Very cloudy. Dense meringue foam. Buttery yeast aroma with prevalent notes of lemongrass, apricot richness, touch of vanilla, cilantro, coconut, fresh flowers, pepper, leather, and a hint of malt. Palate is superb with its brisk, yet restrained carbonation. Extremely complex flavors. Iron notes emerge before notes of grass, pepper, and lemon. Finishes notably dryish with notes of dusty yeast, wood, juicy Styrians, earth, and pear. So dry, musty, yeasty, and earthy. Quintessential Saison.

Complex. Very earthy, wine-like, with hop in the finish. Cloudy yellow with an abundant head. Excellent. npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 15, 2002
Very sweet, spicy nose--lots of orange and coriander. Taste is lovely--honey sweetness, with orange rind flavors and peppery spiciness and a good dose of bitterness in the finish. mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2002
