Sampled on draught at Penn Microbrewers Fest. Has a really nice nose to it. Funky and yeasty with orange peel and bitter floral character. Very traditional. Has a hazy amber body with a thin off-white mildy lacing head. Has a medium watery body with light carbonation. Starts with a nice malt base, a bit grainy, with yeasty funkiness and some Brett essences. Orange peel and a bit of coriander, flowery, with a nice bitter finish to it. Overall, it’s a pretty dry saison and could use a bit more in the malt department. Otherwise, it had a nice authentic yeasty flowery profile. Seems my number is a bit higher than others, but I’m a sucker for a saison.
6/4/12. 22oz bomber that has some age. Clear golden pour with a small khaki head. Minty and papery oxidation in the aroma with touches of spice and a hint of honey and sugars. Slightly sweet malty flavor with bits of spice and sugars. Not terrible. anders37 (26987) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 7, 2012

Bottle at Chriso’s Fullers-Gales tasting, thanks to Leighton. It pours cloudy orange-amber, with a thick beige head. The nose is sweet orangey fruit - apricot, mango and ripe orange, as well as gingerbread. The taste is sweet orange, mango, apricot, grapefruit, metal, hay, straw and dough. Light-medium body and moderate carbonation. Too thin and a bit too much sweetness. Balance is not great either... Leighton (22297) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2012
Bottle at chriso Vintage Tasting. Pours cloudy gold with a foamy head. Odd nose, some sweet bready malts. Light to medium sweet flavor, some bread and light caramel, faint tang. Medium in body with fine to average carbonation. Sweet and bready finish, with some age on the malts. Pretty weak overall. harrisoni (19310) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2012

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Dark orange body, with a minimal head that all but disappears within a few moments. No lacing.
S: Candy orange. Caramel. No Spice. No Funk. No BelgianYeast notes.
T: More of the same. Out of style. But not bad tasting.
M: Smooth. Light to medium body. Good carbonation levels. Lacking any crispness or bite to the finish.
O: Ehh. I’ll pass on this most likely. MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2011
Cloudy amber/ orange pour with thin white head. A musty yeasty smell common in saison. A moderate belgian spice and bread flavor that starts out sweet , but finishes bitter. A hint of toasted malts and wheat. Interesting. MrChopin (4305) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 30, 2011
murky, thin white head. Lightly wheat, dusty nose, fair amount of fruit. Sugary flavor, bit of pear and green grape skin, lightly yeasty, bit of bubblegum, astringent papery finish. Thin, lightly hit and dry, and relatively low alcohol for Weyerbacher. jjuf1853 (1302) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2011
Bottle. Pours a murky tan/brown color with a thick foamed head. Sweet bready malt aroma with caramel notes. Similar flavor with some additional alcohol and more sweetness in the finish. Nickls (2607) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2011
Bottle, thanks to Beerandblues2. Hazy light burnt orange with a lightly tan head. Apples and pears both feature in the aroma and flavor. Touch of earth and light hay. Lots of fruit though, and a bit sweet. Medium body with fizzy carbonation.
