Our very first brew made at Fat Heads, a complex Belgian saison ale brewed with rock candy sugar exotic spices and just enough hops to tie all the flavors together with a clean hop finish.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 29, 2013
On tap at Yogiís, Bloomington. Nice medium orange pour, bright and vibrant. Nose had some soft breads notes and modest spice (interestingly, and not altogether successfully, of the sweeter variety). Light palate, prickly and satisfying. More grain in the taste, with sweet vanilla and cinnamon peeking in. A bit off the mark, even if it has modest charms.

Nate (4186) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2013
On tap at Mad Mex, Cranberry. Pleasant floral-sweet malt notes with honey, jasmine, and yeast. Mild bubblegum esters. Medium amber clear with light haze, topped with thin white head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts and stays sweet with lots of floral and fruity character, yeast, and bubblegum. Smooth sweet finish with no bitterness.

baraciisch (2873) - California, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Golden orange in color... Light citrusy candi sugar aroma... Flavor is spicy and herbal up front... Incredibly floral with nice hop balance on palate... Delicious ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JStax (5214) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Draft. Pours a slightly hazy cwopper with a white head. Aroma is sweet burnt caramel, cinnamon, and cookie crumbs. Is this spiced? Hefty on the tongue. Not quite up to Fat Heads standards...

FROTHINGSLOSH (6717) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a dark golden color with a medium sized foamy white head that left great lacing. The aroma was bread dough, pepper, must and a bit of funk. The flavor was bready, musty, almost dusty with notes of pepper and bubblegum. Long finish of bread, must and bubblegum. Moderately full bodied. Solid.

on tap at FHís 20Apr2012, while i used to detest saisons they are getting better and better to me, and this one is no different.. the spice really blends well and the bubblegum, yeast flavor is melded well.. smooth sailing on this one.

Aroma: Coriander with hints of citrus. Appearance: Cloudy gold with thick, white head. Taste: Medium sweetness with light sourness and light bitterness to balance it out. Palate: Lively carbonation, creamy texture, medium body with slightly sour finish. Overall: Impressive and well crafted, but Iím left wanting more body and depth of character.

Dogbrick (11480) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2011
Sample at the brewpub. The beer pours a clear golden color with a medium thin white head that evaporates steadily. Spotty lacing. Aroma of yeast and fruit along with a touch of spice. Light body with a fruity character and notes of peppery yeast and sweet malt. The finish is clean and fruity up front with a lingering yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

JaBier (6976) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 22, 2010
Sample at Fat Headís. Clear gold pour with a thin off-white head. Nose is Belgian yeast with some banana and peppery yeast going along with a hint of berry. Flavor is honey sweetness up front with a peppery herbal yeast character and a finish that is surprisingly more dry than the beginning sweetness would have led you to expect. Pretty good.
