On tap at the pub. Pours a beautiful bright pale golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is nice and softly spicy, some easy sweet grainy and lightly floral notes. The hops are there and a touch spicy but mostly on the herbal side, creating an easy soft nose. Flavor is well rounded, moderately spiced and a touch hoppy, a slight citric note. Holds a light grainy straw character throughout before and earthy herbal finish. Medium body and an active carbonation. Nice saison, very refreshing.

A very nicely crafted Saison. The popularity of Farmhouse Ale’s are on the rise.

Enjoyed on tap at Revolution Brewery in Chicago, IL while eating dinner with some jabronies who I happen to be in a band with. Rated while watching Teen Wolf. Appearance a vibrant bright gold with thin white head that rims around the glass. Aroma of spices, coriander, wild yeast, very floral, stings the nostrils. Taste very floral and spicy, but smooth at the same time with decent carbonation. Wild yeast and spices are the prevalent ingredients, kind of sour in the finish. Really is pretty good.

Had this at their place in Chicago. All the beer unless noted otherwise were good to very good. Unfortunately this was rated with another program and I can't import my comments.

On tap at Revolution. Hazy orange with a small fizzy white head, fades quickly. Aroma is moderate malts with notes of wild yeast, light fruit, bananas, clove, caramel. Flavor is lighter than the aroma - barnyard/earth, citrus, cloves.

I do love me some Spalt. An ale that is spicy from the hops and yeast rather than kitchen-cabinet nonsense. Spicy hop aroma and flavor, going quite dry with a light malty sweetness for balance. Nice stuff. Unnecessarily strong, perhaps.

On tap at the brewpub. Very floral. Some spice and banana flavor. White head with some very nice lacing. A little too sweet for me on this, but some interesting flavors.

Saison. Full of saisonny saisonness. Nothing else to say. Need to make this comment longer.

aroms is apricot/tangerine, salty sour peach and yeast. appearance is ultra hazy peach with blasting foam head and wicket lacing but low carb. flavor is initially fost nectarines then light sour/funky backend comes forward. yeast is not outright but influence is there. mouthfeel is similar foamy as appearance, thick and oxygenated despite low carb.

22 oz bottle purchased from West Lakeview in Chicago. Poured a nice gold with minimal white head. A very nice spiciness in it, definitely not overwhelming but certainly delicious. I really liked this.
