Bottle shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured hazy golden color with an average frothy white head that was lasting with good lacing. Medium to heavy yeast, herbal, peppercorn and citrus aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex hot & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & hot finish of moderate duration. Solid complex beer for style. bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2012
(22oz bottle) Pours a clear yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of yeast, florals, pepper, apple skin, and licorice. Flavor of fennel, anise, yeast, coriander, honey, grass, pepper, and citrus with a moderately dry finish. Sammy (12995) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2016

22 oz. bottle shared by DrSilverworm (06/2013). Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor has a big herbal and spicy note showcasing the fennel and peppercorn, pale malts, grass with mild sweetness from the mesquite syrup. The flavor had more peppercorn and less fennel. Somewhat dry, medium bodied. Interesting enough. daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 18, 2012
Pours a clear apple juice gold color witha white head that disappears very quickly. The first thing I get in the aroma is a nice orange and coriander note with some good yeasty qaulities. I also detect the anise notes from the fennel and fennel pollen. Hellbilly grew and harvested the fennel and fennel pollen. He has given me both from his garden and I can honestly detect the aromas. Movin to the flavor. The coriander and fennel are the two things I notice the most upon the first sip. Orange blossom honey, yeast, some hay and grassy notes finish this one up. What a really nice beer. Would be awesome with some nicely prepared food.

22oz bottle, thanks to MikedR. Mildly hazy golden color. Some fine particles suspended in the body. Couple loose dots of lace. Interesting, unique spicy nose. Some unusual spices, lemon / lime zest, smooth light to moderate strength soft carbonation. More dry in the finish. Nice herbal notes to it, lightly savory. Some zesty sweet taste. Nice, interesting tasty saison bytemesis (9489) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Bomber thanks to Daknole. Pours clear orange amber with a large off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is citrus, orange peel, funk, pepper, herbs, grain. Flavor is the same, lightly sweet, grassy bitter, herbal and peppery notes. Medium body, interesting beer overall. b3shine (9257) - Indiana, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Bottle to tulip (thanks, Daknole). Looks good; cop perish with thin lacing. Smells pretty good; nutmeg? Tastes good; Zesty and spicy. Mouthfeel is good. A good saison! Ibrew2or3 (8912) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Pours gold with a thin-ish sort of white colored head of foam. The aroma emits sweet apples, loads of herbal rosemary, basil and anise. Nice and interesting for sure. The taste is similar with apple and pear and honey like sweetness riding on top of a firm degree of pleasing herbal goodness seemingly coming from the same characters noted in the nose; rosemary, basil and anise. Cool brew with plenty of interest and great balance of flavors. AirForceHops (8026) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 19, 2012
22 oz. bottle in a trade. Thanks to BOLTZ555. Snifter showed hazy gold with big bubbly head that died quickly. Small ring left in the wake. Nose of orange, coriander and wheat. Taste has a lot of pepper, wheaty yeast and a light hint of the fennel pollen the brewer speaks of. Has a bit of orange pith, which kind of makes your mouth dry. Lighter in body with a zesty mouthfeel. Nice brew.
