Crystal clear golden coloured body with a light orange glow and a thin, fast-dying tan head. Aroma of yeast, wheat, sugars and tons of coriander seed with a bit of curacao. Light-bodied; Sharp pungent malt at first with some metal, malt, wheat, yeast and a bunch of curacao and lemons. Aftertaste is quite bitter from the malt, metal, yeast and a touch of hops, with some other grassy notes and a little sweetness at the tail end. Overall, a strong beer that doesn’t show off to be such a bad beer - but one with a lot of flavour that doesn’t necessarily translate to great flavours, especially for the style. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 23-May-2012 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Upstate New York on 26-May-2012.

12oz bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a medium white lasting head. Aroma and Taste of citrus, lemons, some grass and hay notes, with some biscuit malt and light bitter hops. A light crisp body with good carbonation. Finish is light crisp, citrus and lemon flavors with some light bitter hops and a lingering nutty aftertaste. Overall a good crisp and refreshing brew.

Pours a golden orange color with a thin head. Aroma of Belgian yeast and citrus. Taste follows the nose but us far too sweet for a saison. Not a bad beer but I was not expecting the sweetness. This takes away from the refreshing nature of a saison making this beer a bit of a disappointment.
FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Pours a hazy, pale gold with a soft finger of white head. Pretty good lacing and plentiful beading.
The nose is pretty decent... orange peels, clove, banana, I gotta say it reminds me of a Blue Moon. Not off-putting, but not fantastic either.
The flavors here are rather muddled. Wheat, clove, more orange peel, sort of a medicinally tart aftertaste.
I’d probably pass on this one in the future. Glad I got to try it though! MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2012
On draft at Isaacs.. Some sour notes with fruit, brwad and mild spice. It’s ok.

Bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with two fingers of white head and plenty of lacing. Aroma has plenty of wild yeast and some apricot sweetness. Taste is classic saison with a bubbly mouthfeel. Nothing amazing but a good, cheap example in the style. sethbreaker (179) - New York, Greater London, USA - APR 21, 2012
From the bottle. Not much given away on the nose,a faint whiff of the yeast. Light mouth feel some characteristics coming from the yeast, a little pepper and spice although I found this beer rather one dimensional. TheHopster (1111) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2012
(bottle). Hazy golden complexion with modest lacing. Flavor has traces of orange peel with mild malt favors.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: light orange body. thin off-white head. little lacing and moderate head retention.
S: Orange, lemon, light spice. Noticeable lack of funk and yeast.
T: More of the same. Not particularly remarkable for the style. Pleasant soft citric fruits.
M: Smooth. Light body. Lacking a crisp finish.
O: Decent, but there are plenty of others out there that fit the style and taste better at the price. gpekar (497) - Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2011
Poured a slightly hazy golden yellow with wisps of clouds from the sediment swirling through the glass. There was a medium tall foamy off-white head that left some light lacing. There were some carbonation bubbles rising up in the glass. The aroma was grassy with some citrus notes. The beer had a crisp clean initial taste with good carbonation. There was a light tartness with a citrus flavor initially with some malty sweetness towards the middle. The finish became more bitter than tart and on the dry side. It was a refreshing finish.
