This beer is brewed in the Belgian Saison style (country farm house ale). A potent yet delicate ale, brewed with a unique Belgian yeast which develops a spicy, fruity flavor. Enormously complex. Available from May to around August.

Decent saison. Correct characteristics but not very well rounded. Nothing above average.

chinchill (1954) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Heavy Seas Red Sky on cask at the 2014 Decatur Beer Festival. Off-white head over a slightly hazyboy; durable and creamy head. Reversing my usual reaction to saisons, this one smells better that it tastes. A load of wild yeasty flavors in the mouth. Some hint of vinegar in the nose. Highly complex flavor.

Weevo (35) - Indiana, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle, pours gold with a red tint, white head. Cloves to the nose, which continues thru to taste with banana. ABV 7.5% Not bad, but not what I like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerathon (1217) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Slightly hazed gold with frothy white head. Belgian yeast in nose, sweet tangy flavor, hay, banana. Not a good representation of the style.

bkurtz (831) - PERU - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle - Pours a clear golden with a smallish white head. Sweet aroma with caramel. Interesting, cider notes and yeast. Tangy with a smooth finish. Not particularly well made, but I like it.

jrodooo5 (1034) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Attractive orange pour w/ a white head that leaves lacing. The aroma is of mild spice. The taste is almost peppery. A little different for a saison but not bad. Not the easiest on the palate but i still enjoyed this!

phaleslu (6606) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Draft sample at Cincy Beerfest 2014 on Fountain Square. Pours a cloudy gold with a small white head. Notes of bread, banana, fruity esters, citrus zest, florals, and mellow spice. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, sweet, estery mouthfeel. Assertive Belgian-style saison.

ordybill (101) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Poured from a 12OZ bottle into a pint glass. This is a slightly cloudy golden colored beer. Lightly carbonated with some sediment, has a nice white head. A pretty good saison with a hint of fruit b the tongue.

BierMeHoos (119) - Maryland, USA - SEP 2, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark gold color. The aroma and flavor has doughy yeast, spices, clove, and tons of fruit. Kind of strange but in a good way. Not a top tier beer but pretty decent.
