On draft at the Main Line Brew Fest. I was served this one by none other than Chris LaPierre himself, who is a heck of a nice guy. Pours hazy gold with big head. Aroma of malt, fruit, spice, candi sugar, floral esters. Has a solid, very complex saison taste, with a smooth, bold finish. Wonderful.

On tap at Wilmington as part of their Belgian Beer Fest (brewed at the West Chester Location). Nice break from the previous Quad & Oak Aged Quad I had before this. Poured a darker orange/amber color with a small white head. Aromas of apples, yeast and other fruits. Fruity tasting. Lightly tart. Refreshing.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured a golden color, slight amber hues, mostly golden yellow. The head was nice, lacing good. The aroma was nice citrus, bready, slightly floral. The flavor was wonderful, refreshing bready, citrus, peppery, other fruity aspects. Mouthfeel light to moderate for the style. The bready peppery combo was excellent for the summertime, despite this not being as complex and over the top spicey like a Fantome, just a great lawnmowing beer for those that want good stuff even for such tasks / activity. Two thumbs up here, really enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: The beer pours a hazed golden color with a big white head.
S: A nice lemon peel aroma and a subtle fruity tartness. Pale malt and bread with a few spice notes, too. Quite fruity overall, perhaps even a little bit tropical.
T: The flavor opens up with lots of sweet tropical fruits (guava and pineapple) and lots of citrus such as grapefruit and tangerine. Some bread and pale malts, and a bit of pepper and yeast, too.
M: Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation.
O: This was a really nice saison. Great fruit flavors without having too much spice/pepper to it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of hopdog. Vibrant golden hue to the body. White frothy head. Aromas of lemon pie, baked apples, Belgian yeast, freshly cut flowers, fried bananas, candied oranges, and light spices. Very nice stuff! Taste is banana bread, sweet tangerines, sugary lemonade, wheat, light spice, Belgian yeasts, candy sugar, and light earthiness. Body is light and spritzy. Minimal carbonation fizziness. Light dry tart finish bringing forth more wheat, lemon zest, grassy hints, orange peel, and green apples. Yeast is present here as well and adds to a stronger bitterness. Very nice beer and like the Sly Fox saison, Iím not sure why the ratings are so low.

A yellow/orange appearance. A nice sour and citrus aroma. The flavor consists of peaches, pears, almonds?, and orange. A good musky backdrop to it all. A rather tame Saison as they only wanted to serve them in 20oz glasses but its still good.
