Poured on tap at Dexters in Madison, WI, pours a clear golden color with a thin white head and slight lacing, the aroma is fruity with a hint of booze in the nose, the flavor is nicely balanced with malt and fruit, it even has a touch of sourness in the finish, pretty enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce bottle(2010 edition) pours an effervescent, hazy, yellow gold body with a large and delicate white head. Good retention and some sheet lacing. Aroma is funky and yeasty, with fruity honeydew melon, white grape skins, kiwi, orange peel, lemon, and some herbal hops. Dry and silky on the palate with a champagne like carbonation. Taste nirrors aroma. Funky wild yeast character is apparent but could use more time to develop. Subtle barnyard, kiwi, white grape skins, orange peel, and lemon, with some dry bitterness from herbal hops. Would love to have a few bottles to age to see if some time gives it some more pastoral character. Very nicely done.

Pours a golden yellow, with a thick, forthy white head. Aroma is very fruity, especially banana and oranges. Very fuity taste to this one, which had some ctirus and hoppy feel to it. Very nice feel to the mouth, has a nice bitter finish to it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pineapple and sour banana aroma with some honey and a woody character. Hazy yellow under a thick, white ring that laced the glass. Tropical fruit flaovur with a woody bitterness and a touch of horseblanket and white grape. The woody bitterness transcends the whole tasting experience and is a nice counterpoint to the horseblanket. Light body, medium carbonation, woody bitter finish.

On tap at Anchor Bar in Wichita. Pours hazy yellow-gold with small white head. Aromas of orange, a bit of tartness, yeast, and a bit of the barrel. Flavors of light spices, orange, lemon, yeast, bit of tartness, a bit of vanilla, and some wet wood. Very tasty brew and a hell of an american saison. Very proud that this brew came out of Chicago.
