As the story goes, the charm of the Cap hails an otherwise mischievous band of winged-monkeys to carry out any three commands its owner wishes, such as carrying you from vast scarlet poppy fields to Emerald City, or even to the comfort of a country farmhouse. Golden Cap Saison however, brings the comfort to you with its modern interpretation of a traditional farmhouse ale. A soft, pale beer, Golden Cap accentuates the flavors and aromas of summer fields. Brewed with an ancestor to wheat called spelt, and bottle-conditioned; it's straw-colored body accentuated with lively carbonation and unique fermentation profile evoke fresh cut hay and cracked peppercorns. Ep-pe, pep-pe, kak-ke! Hil-lo, hol-lo, hel-lo! Ziz-zy, zuz-zy, zik!

An okay saison. Nothing exceptional, and the lack of a substantive yeasty farmhouse kick is a bit of a disappointment. Tropical fruitiness, some mild hoppiness. Tried with Nick at the brewery in 2012.

Cybercat (5169) - Georgia, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Comes out of the tap a beautiful, slightly hazy golden - not much head, but that must be an artifact of the pour. Malty aroma has a strong yeasty overtone and a woody hint. Satisfying flavor is yeasty, malty and woody with a hint of - hmmmmmmm, cloves. Could that be a whisper of butterscotch? Anyhoo, a very tasty brew. Good texture has a fair amount of fizz, leaving a tingly, malty, slightly woody finish. This is definitely a sipping beer, for savoring while chilling on the porch - or watching a football game.

portableparty (2292) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy gold yellow color with a big foamy white head that settles to a foamy film. Aroma has sweet bread and yeast notes with lemon citrus as well. Taste lemon citrus yeast and bread with a decent hop bitterness. Palate is slick and chalky.

Aggie80 (808) - Michigan, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Pours a gold color with a strong white head and nice lacing. Aroma is spicy, slight malt undertones. Taste is typical saison that paired surprisingly well with the Chinese food served.

johnnyoski (445) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Bottle. Pours a slightly murky pale yellow color with a fizzy white head. Lemon, grass and sour yeast aroma. Sourdough and lemon-pepper flavor with a musty finish. Well carbonated with a light to medium body. Not bad but probably not something I would have again.

RABinCO (1508) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Bottle. Pours a crisp, clear hay with a rather fluffy white head and lots of tingly carbonation. Nice spicy, slightly funky aroma immediately. Taste is crisp, spicy, and funky. Doesn’t really stick around much and definitely gets a little...not as good as it warms.
