750 ml bottle. A hazy medium to dark blonde beer, with a huge, frothy, lacing, fully lasting white head. The aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain/bread), moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs, grass), lightly to moderately yeasty (earth, must/mold), with notes of pepper, lemon, orange, grape, perhaps a touch of mint and coriander. The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, very long finish with moderate bitterness. Excellent stuff, complex. drinkable, quaffable, not over the top example, it feels almost completely Belgian, not overly spicy, Rustic and satisfying. daleharshman (1064) - Escondido, California, USA - NOV 8, 2011
750 ml bottle purchased a little over a year ago at Holiday Wine Cellar ($11.29). Pours a honey-orange hue with huge fluffy white head (started coming out of the bottle when I opened it) with good retention. Aroma of dusty malts, musty horseblanket, yeast, some caramel, and some fruit. Flavor of tasty caramel, bready malts, citrus-y fruit, tangy peppery spice, and some yeast. Dry-ish finish. Decent saison, but not much interesting or exciting here. For the price, I think it should be much better. (329, 635) TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 7, 2011
Numerous bottles and most recently a cask pour at Avenue Pub. Rating the cask version. Super cloudy orange golden with a sudsy white head. Nose is spices, yeast, citrus, esters. Flavor is similar, a little grass, flowers, quite estery. Slightly dry, slightly sweet finish. A little different each time I have it but always enjoyable.

[Courtesy of abemorsten] Pours cloudy orange/deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, yeast, pepper and dried fruits. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long light spicy finish of black peppers. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
750 bottle. Pours bright hazy yellow with a small white head. Nose is fresh citrus, some yeastiness, a slight bit of horseblanket. Taste is very refreshing, with similar flavors as the nose. Light bodied and well carbonated. Goes down easy. Similar to the best Belgian farmhouse ales. Well done.

On tap Vintage Estates. Pours golden color, nice aroma of citrus, fruit, and spiciness, nice mixture. Good tasting complex brew, interesting flavors of citrus, pepper, and sweetness, good balance, medium bodied, bitter dry finish, worth the try for a different brew. Consider a saison, definitely different, but in a good way. Hair6a11 (1481) - Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Bottle; Pour is murky gold with a frothy pillow top white head in this tulip; the nose is like mineral water, lemon grass - and a light hop note - I didn’t pull it by myself but after reading the description - I get the new zealand hop note present after having a new zealand ipa - the flavor profile is bitter out of the gate; biscuits, caramel, a zesty hop note - with lemon grass and mild belgian notes -
