Really surprised how much I truyl enjoyed this beer. Classic saison wild yeast flavor comes through on the first sip, nice finish, balanced through and through....cheers to Sly Fox.

bottle. pours cloudy yellow gold with a big mountainous white head. aroma is musty with a light element of citrus/lime. the carbonation and bitter were dominant at first sip, but as it warmed it balanced well allowing light spice to come through. dry finish. the look and aroma are great but i was hoping for more yeast character, and something a little more dynamic in the taste. reminded me more of a straight beligain blonde than a lively, fruity siason. not a bad beer by any means though.

Steeeve (327) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Clear gold pour with a small white head. Nose is full of citrus, lemons, bananas, and a touch of pepper. Tastes about the same. Nice dry yeasty finish with a little bit of spiciness. Body is on the light side, but pretty crisp. I’m not usually a fan of saisons but this is a pretty nice offering. Would be a nice spring and summer sipper.

Bottle. Hazy, bottle-conditioned golden color. Aroma of malt, spice, flower, herb, licorice, white wine, hay. Flavors of grain, wine white, spice, pepper, herb, licorice. Earthy with spice and bright fruit notes. Balanced finish with carbonic edge. Medium body with springy mouthfeel and moderate-high carbonation.

750->tulip: Pours a huge, white, frothy head that exhibits excellent lacing atop a cloudy yellow body. Malt is of cookie, hops are of celery, and a light yeast/bacteria aroma. The body is medium, the texture is alcoholic and contains light carbonation, all finishing astringently. The flavor’s duration is short, and it is lightly sweet, acidic, and bitter, ending somewhat salty. Not a bad beer by any stretch of the imagination and a very good Saison to boot. A definite "do-over." :)

On tap at Earth. Good looking beer, with a rich white head. Spicy and peppery aroma with some apples and oranges. Dry, fruity taste with lots of spice. Well brewed.

Chipper (303) - Red Lion, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2011
Pours a bright clear golden color with a huge fluffy white head. Aroma is spicy with some yeast and a little sour. Flavor is super smooth, dry but not bitter, and very effervescent. Not very familiar with the style, but this a very good brew.

i can only keep interest in a blonde belgian style, its good citrusy fresh a little tart and the end.
