On tap at the Blue Dog, Chalfont. Poured a cloudy golden color with a small sized head. Spices with lighter wood, and fruity sweetness.

mansquito (3114) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 17, 2013
City Tap House, Philadelphia tap: Pours a golden colour with a white head. Aroma is vanilla, wood, and a bit of saison funk. While cold the oak aging kind of takes over, but not too much to cover all the spice and the like. As it warms, it gets more spicy and is also slightly sweet. Not too much in the way of saison funk. Kind of drinks more like an oak aged Belgian Ale. Nevertheless, this is an interesting idea for a beer.

kramer (4694) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Tap. Pours a hazy orangish gold body with a small frothy white head that fell to a thin wispy covering. The nose is fairly light and subtle. I don’t get a whole lot of ’farmhouse’ character from it, more of just a pale malt or wheat malt base with a very minimal spice note and maybe a hint of wood. The flavor is a little more centered on the spicing than the yeast character, which is generally not my thing as far as Saisons are concerned. The more I have, the spicier it gets as well. Not much impact from the honey in here, save for a slightly sweeter than expected finish. Mouthfeel is fairly soft with prickly carbonation. A lingering spicy finish. Not flawed in any way, but not what I’m looking for from a Saison.
