Sample at fofa. Hazy gold pour with white head. Aroma is pungent, quite hoppy, mild funk, zesty notes, floral. Taste is bitter, grassy with chamomile/honey notes, light peppery flavors. Palate is med bodied, good carbonation, a bit heavy.

At FoFA. Hazy yellow-golden with a small white head, good retention, leaving good lacing. Aroma is floral with a rather strong lemon zest presence, peppery notes and mild perfume notes and spiciness from the rye. Taste has a fun wheaty presence and light tartness that combines well with the lemon zest notes but the rye floral and perfume presence make it a bit heavier. Some peppery notes as well and some bitterness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Spicy finish. It’s a well-executed beer but too spicy (from the rye) for my liking.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4663) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 14, 2016
A soft gold with a fizzy white head. Soft sweet tart candy aroma. The taste is a bit lactic, acidic, lemon, yoghurt. Soft round carbonation. Good but not as good as many other things at FoFa.

A delightful mystery. Where are those apricot flavors coming from? Phenols from the saison yeast? Terpene alcohols from apricot fruit? I have no idea. But this beer tastes as poetic as its name.

Bright cloudy yellow pour. Aroma and flavor are fruit and earth, tart lemon and yeast. Somewhere between a saison and a sour. Really nice.

Tasted from draft at the brewery. Pours a murky yellow with white head. Aroma is sour fruit. Taste is pretty sour with flavors of peaches, lemons, lemon. Well done sour saison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

joeneugs (5850) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 21, 2015
On draft at the brewery. It pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma has some cream of wheat with lemon and grapefruit. Light notes of peaches. The flavor is creamy with grapes, grapefruit and peach. Light hints of lemon and pineapple. Very fruit forward. Some bread and spice in the finish. Really warming and tasty. Enjoyable and balanced though not all that complex.

From a cask at the brewery. Aroma has a moderately strong floral and herbal hop character that works well with the spicy phenolic notes from the yeast. Medium light fruitiness with pear, tropical fruit and red apple. Light graininess. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a small white head of moderate thickness that recedes fairly quickly. Moderate lacing and faint legs. Flavor is similar to the aroma with a light sweet graininess and a touch of cracker character. Moderate ester character with a lot of pear, light tropical fruit and citrus. Hop notes are lighter but they still add a nice spicy herbal quality that works well with the phenolic pepper notes from the yeast. Moderate bitterness. Light to medium light tartness in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium low carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall a very enjoyable beer, especially if you like the spicy, herbal hops. Nice yeast character that works well with the hops. Light malt character compliments.

A- pours a hazy light golden color with a bright white, minimal, clingy head. Good lacing. S- sensuous cloves, rhubarb, lemon zest and seltzer water all tingle the nose up front. Horse blanket, straw, musty New England farmhouse, coriander and biscuits all follow up in support. M- light to medium tacky body with a bitting, tart and slightly sweet light to medium body. Good carbonation. T- strong cloves, biscuit and resin malts up front. Citrus from guava, lemon, kiwi and pineapple. Some grapefruit. Mineral water and sweet cream butter as well. Ending is quick and dry with lingering citrus and butter.

On tap at the brewery. Pours slightly hazy gold with a white head. Tropical fruit aroma, banana and tangerine, peach. Flavor is bright fruit, fibrous unripe mango, banana, granola. A relatively sweet golden ale, not particularly saisonish but tasty.
