I haven’t had a lot of other beers in this style, so I don’t have a lot to compare it to. It reminds me of a good red ale. Pours with a decent head that fades quickly, has a nice color to it. It’s a decent beer, but I probably wouldn’t buy a six pack again. tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2006
Sweet, lightly vegetal aroma with mild fruity and floral overtones. Clear copper-amber coloured body is topped by a low white head that recedes rapidly to ring. Sweet and lightly vegetal flavour with floral and mild citrus character and just a touch of an acid bite. Light body with low carbonation. Bottle sampled with MartinT, Rastacouere and Siroy.

Nothing about this brew. Poured a translucent copper color..smallish white head. Slightly sour (if nothing else) aroma..some maltiness, dare I say caramel? Minimal bitterness, thin bodied....nothing to get excited about. Probably the worst I’ve tried in this style. Strykzone (7355) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2006
This beer pours with a head that could be described as explosive in that it rapidly expands and takes over the glass. Color of the foam is kind of like that of marmalade. The beer is a nice honey orange with plenty of carbonation. This took some patiece because of the time it took for the head to subside. First taste was maximum fruit and some bitter hops. It is an interesting mix of sweet caramel, raisen, and bitter hop. some late zing is felt in the back of the tongue. There is some grassiness in both the taste and the aroma. This is proving to be one of those beers that give the impression that multiple samples would bring multiple flavors. You have got to love a beer like that. Finish begins to introduce citrus flavors. Enjoyable! fbennett (293) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 15, 2006
This offering from Two Brothers pours a dark maroon that has some yeast floating around the body, leaving a tan lace that floats on the top of the beer. The aroma is plum, dates, figs, prune lots of "stone fruit" are present in this saison. There is a sweetness to the body (sugary prune juice). The taste is hoppy, starts off with watery plum fruit juice feel, it has a malty background that reminds me of grape juice. The finish is a suttle hop bitter aftertaste with a somewhat floural watery mouthfeel. Pretty decent overall, I love the different flavor for this saison.

has a sweet alomst honey type aroma, colour is a orangish haze. flavor is sweet/ honey, a bit citrusy. Almost a cider element to it. Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 9, 2006
Totally clear golden-amber, tiny white head. Not too inspiring to start with. Worse, poorly extracted pils malt generates corny DMS that dulls out the perfumey, fruity, honeyed nose. Lasting fruity flavours are accompanied by unpleasant ascorbic acids, potatoes vegetal flavours and limited tartness. Flat, very watery and highly processed palate. A real shame this, I had been looking for this beer for over a year and it’s a trainwreck in this condition (filtered 12oz) and I’m not gonna be making big efforts to look for other issues.

a sweet aroma, with a yeasty,malty flavor. lots of earthy flavors in this too. well, not lots, it’s pretty simple, but earthy nontheless. I could take it or leave it. BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2006
[bottle] Kind of one-dimensional. Sweet aroma, sweet flavors. Not too much yeast or malt presence. Still, this is nice. mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - FEB 10, 2006
Bottle. Amber in color with a little head. Malty aroma. Not much to say. Malty flavor. Thin. Ok.
