Draft at the source.
Slightly hazy yellow body with a small white collar. Aromas of banana, clove, citrus. More like a hefe than a saison. Light and slightly sweet. Easy drinking. Pretty good.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2014 4 oz draft pour at Mad Fox on 7/14/2014. Clear straw yellow with off-white head. Aromas of citrus fruit and peel, herbs, spices. Tastes of citrus fruit and peel, funk, lemon, spices, floral notes. Medium body with a dry finish. Medium-low carbonation.
Tried the Galactic Funk version on 8/25/2014 which is the saison on cask dry hopped with Galaxy. The Galaxy adds a nice fruitiness to the taste.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft->lager at the brewpub. Hazy dark gold with small white head. Herbs, pepper, citrus, bright malt, yeast. To be fair, I am not a fan of saisons in general, but even so, this is a bit of a mess.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2013 Tap at the brewpub. Pale golden pour with no head. I can’t get much out of this except a huge blast of perfume. Maybe a slight sour element. Bleh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap 5 oz. sample at Mad Fox Brewing Company restaurant in Falls Church, VA.
Clear, with a hint of haze, golden-straw color with off-white head and good lacing.
Aroma of fruit, citrus and earth, musty yeast.
Taste of fruit, musty yeast, caramel, citrus and herbal hops. Sweet and sour wit a musty, bitter finish.
Medium body and low/medium carbonation.
This saison lacks the usual bright, crisp feeling. It has the farmhouse funk, but instead of being crisply sour, it is more of a barnyard musty sourness.
