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.

vadavid (142) - Fredericksburg, Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2008
Pours a nice straw-yellow color with a thick white head that drops fairly rapidly, leaving little lacing. The aroma is familiar Belgian yeast, with a fruity (banana, grape) background. The taste is earthy and fruity with an ever so slight citrus zest. There are spicy peppery notes at the finish. The flavor lingers pleasantly in the mouth with a light mouthfeel and very light carbonation. The 7.5% ABV is well-masked and barely noticeable.

chinchill (1964) - 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.

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 (1222) - 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 (1038) - 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 (6609) - 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.
