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.

Spicy with a hint of bananas and maybe cinnamon. Bitter finish. Pours yellowish orange with a white head. Had at revolution. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasting at LUSH. Poured hazy yellow orange with light white head. Farmy banana funk aromas. Quite smooth balanced flavor. I like it.

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.

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.

Tap flight at the brewery. Clear, dark golden pour, minimal head. Aroma of spice, yeast, and hops. Flavorful brew. Spice drops mixed with a mild hop background. Slippery mouthfeel. Nice .

ccex (931) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2012
22 oz bottle from Treasure Island foods, Hyde Park, Chicago. Pours a hazy golden color with small white head. Aroma is full of yeast, apricot, cloves, grass, and something from a barnyard. Taste is sweet at first, then spicy, and finally driy. Medium body with enough carbonation to keep the mouthfeel lively. A very good saison, made in the warehouse where I worked for 6 years (it was a computer recycling center before it became a brewery).

At GTMW. Decent saison with a good hop punch but a really weak finish. Not impressed.

Hazy yellow with a nice head. The aroma is noble hops, some light spice, and yeast esters. The flavor is similar with with a slightly tart, somewhat sweet finish. Very refreshing, well done.
