12 oz bottle. Pours a hazed light golden with a white head. Yeasty aroma with orange peel and lemongrass, coriander. Light palate with similar flavors, coriander, lemongrass, orange peel, other spices. Light, but pretty tasty. Dogbrick (14287) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 25, 2013
This beer is a hazy pale golden color with a medium fizzy white head that burns away quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Malt, fruit and floral hops in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, bready malt and fruit. The finish is mildly spiced with a short zesty lemon aftertaste. Decent overall.

Golden color. Opens sweet and finishes dry. Aggressively hopped which ends up hiding a bit of the Belgian yeast. Still, really cool beer right here. Very tasty. superspak (6200) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2013

Taste of lemon zest, orange zest, pear, coriander, clove, pepper, ginger, wheat, bread, floral, grass, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of lemon, pear, coriander, clove, pepper, cracker, bread, floral, grass, and herbal on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, spice, and moderate malt flavors; with great flavor robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish.

Overall this is a very nice session saison style. Nice complexity, balance, and robustness of yeast, spice, and moderate malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering. coolfunnj (374) - Margate City, New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2013
yeast pine and citrus in the not overpowering aroma,maybe a bit of spice and apple too..pale yellow cloudy appearance with a seafoamy white head,plenty of lacing..taste..like a lemon menthol cough drop I don’t mean that in a bad way with just a touch of sweetness to balance..light dry and tingly..overall it is what it claims to be a refreshing spring/summer type Belgian saison that’s easily drinkable ROGUE (2216) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - OCT 6, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a pale straw color with a slight haze, with a huge, fluffy white head that lingers. Aroma is grainy, some barnyard, lemony citrus and some peppery spiciness. Very floral flavor up front, lemon and orange zest, herbal and slightly medicinal pepperiness on the finish. Almost tart tangy feel, lightly effervescent, on the lighter side of medium bodied, finishes dry.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2013 Bottle. Pours a light yellow straw color, slightly cloudy. Fluffy white head with lace. Melon, slight spice, and orange. Medium mouthfeel. Meh. Orange rind bitterness and some spice. It’s ok but not great.
