On pouring, a lovely crisp grapefruity citrus and exotic fruit aroma. In the glass, the head gives off a classic saisony belgian yeasty aroma, fairly spicy, but sweet too. Slightly biscuitty. Pours a mostly clear orange with huge spongy head that’s fairly persistent. Quite light in the mouth, pleasant carbonation. Spicy and bananaey retronasals. Heavier later, some slightly bocky (i.e. plasticky) sweet malts. Slight saisony funk, but mostly this is just a hoppy belgian ale. Plenty of spicy hops, quite herbal and undergrowthy. Finish has some lighter more aromatic fruits, as well as a nice earthy bitterness. There’s a little bit of everything, it’s a curious mix.

Gold, tight head. Lovely uplifting perfumey aroma. Wheaty palate, but some solvents in retronasals. Fullish palate for a light beer, smooth. Quite bananaey on swallowing. Finish is old dry hops, but does get a little yeasty too. Pleasant saison shame about the downsides.
Hazy amber colour. Sweet aroma with flowers and grapefruit. Taste is sweet malty and bitter, full of citrus and some belgian yeast. Surprisingly heavy body and smooth palate. Enjoyable, easy and perfectly balanced hybrid of American hops and Belgian beer. hoorayh (15) - - FEB 27, 2013
