Bottle. Dark gold. Fruit, bread, caramel, grains. Solid. Two years old. Enjoyable.

Bottle. Gold with white head. Very malty. Toasted grain and honey dominate. Full chewy body. Not what I was expecting but enjoyed it nonetheless. keepersj12 (3137) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 10, 2014
I loved the aroma. Fruity with belgian spice. The flavor was strange. A metallic off taste and something like dust. I don't know exactly. It seemed to go away as it warned. Medium body with a lively mouth feel.

Served on tap in a chalice glass
Appearance – The beer is served a clear golden orange color with a one finger head of billowy white foam. The head fades rather quickly leaving a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer big of a sour green apple smell mixed with lots grassy and hay-like smells mixed within. Along with these smells are some wheat and some other sweeter fruit aromas of a peach and apricot smell as well as some yeasty smells and a bit of pepper and lemongrass.
Taste – The taste begins with a bready and somewhat doughy taste mixed with some fruit flavors of tangerine and apricot. A sour apple flavor quickly comes to the tongue as the taste advances, bringing with it a hay-like and funky flavor. More fruit flavors of apricot and some peach come to the tongue toward the middle bringing more sweetness to the brew. At that time the doughy flavors are lost, crisping up the flavor a bit more. At the end, a bit more hay and grass along with the slightest bit of a grassy and earthy hop flavor as well as some lemongrass and pepper come to the tongue, which mix with the rest leaving a wheaty and fruity lightly hopped funky flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner and crisper side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. A bit more carbonation may have been slightly better for the style and complemented the crispness and funk of the brew slightly better, but even with that said the thinner body did just that, so overall the feel was rather decent.
Overall – A rather nice saison with a good balance of funk, sweet, and malt that creates a very easy drinking style.
22oz bottle pours hazy orange brown with 2 finger head. Nose and taste are full of musty weird copper, metal, stale grain, rotten fruit and bread, phenolic, super overdone spicy yeast. Really bad.

22oz bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with a white head. Fruity, citrus and some lighter spice. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Bottle: Thick and hazy, deep and dirty straw, moderate white head, spotty lacing. Bright wheaty nose, also on the tongue. Still feels a bit spritzy although it looks flat. Somewhat bright, but not real floral or spicy. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Soft grassy and yeasty finish. A bit ho-hum, but not bad. Could stand to be a bit more floral. drfabulous (8663) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAY 1, 2014
