COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

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.

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 (427) - 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 (1144) - 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.

Jethro6191 (421) - Indiana, USA - JUL 29, 2012

cracklefish (108) - Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2012
I had this a few years back and it was phenolic and sticky. This year a friend recommended it and then gave me a couple bottles. The aroma is hay and citric with a touch of poopy diaper. Flavors include spice and a light non lingering sweetness. Mouthfeel is a bit slick like a trad farmhouse. Light acidity brings it all to life. Much, much better than I remember it.

BiddleBrau (915) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Pours clear golden. Nice lingering head. Real nice looking. Aroma is lightly spiced and of corn. Light hop bite, spicy flavor as well. Finishes quick and clean. Hint of sour/Bret as well which is nice. Very light flavor that hides the 7% alc well. Nice work.
