On tap at Capone’s. Poured amedium and hazy golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of earthiness, yeasty, spices, citrus, and bready. Tastes of the same earthiness, bready, and spices. I noted earhty and peppery. blipp (9906) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUL 23, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. Pours hazy gold with a thin head. Spicy and yeasty aroma, lightly fruity. The flavor has a saison-esque spice profile, a fruity sweetness, and a nice dry yeasty finish. Pretty good.Definitely a solid sessionable beer. vtafro (7451) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JUL 27, 2009
Tap @ capones. Light golden pour. Wan’t a huge fan of this saison. Very clean finish pretty easy to drink. kramer (6991) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2009
On tap, at brewery. Presents as a murky yellow orange body with a small fizzy white head. The nose is quite yeasty with hay and light spices, a touch of Saison like farmhouse funkiness. The flavor is very yeasty, slightly spicy, with just s bit of farmhouse funkiness. Mouthfeel is fairly thick with a soft very smooth texture and light soft carbonation. The heavy yeastiness really adds to the mouthfeel. Very soft and light, and very sessionable for sure. I like that they let the yeast and malts shine on this one and kept the spicing to a minimum. Enjoyable. egajdzis (6830) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2009
Poured a hazy golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, coriander, banana, vanilla, toasted malts, honey, and spices. Taste of vanilla, citrus, earthy yeast, spices, grass, honey, and a dry finish.

In short: A yeasty fruity beer with a farmhouse character. Good Saison-ish beer.Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2009
How: Handbottle from my buddy dickinsonbeer. Thanks a lot Paul.
The look: Cloudy dark blonde body topped by a very small head with low retention
In long: Nose is moderately yeasty with notes of freshly baked bread and tropical fruits. Taste is bready, uncooked fruity dessert dough, oranges, phenols notes, pineapples, doughy yeast. Medium carbonation with a nice doughy body. Not super wild but there’s something very “farmhouse” about the whole thing. This beer could pass as a Saison. I really Bullfrog, they make original beer off the beaten path. Very inspired. Being inspired can be dangerous. Once inspiration stoke me. From behind. It left me for dead and the police did nothing.
Tap at Capones. Pours a very hazy loney orange- muddled copper with a moderate lasting head- and nice lace. Aroma is doughy, toast, light bread, sharp orange and lemongrass, light fruity esters and a good spicy phenol kick. Flavor is actually fairly full for a light saison- full doughy malts, caracker, bread, light toast, and crusty bread, more grass and lemon zest- lots of turbid yeastiness makes it more interesting- fruit juicy and a phenolic floral kick in the end- yeastiness is crossing from a saison phenolicness and almost to a light clean hefe yeast kick. Dry and nice finish. michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2009
Draught at Capone’s: Aroma of yeast, spices, slight pepper, pale malts, and cloves. Poured orange in color with a small, creamy, off-white head that lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of spices, yeast, cloves, slight fruit, and slight pale malts. Light body. Thin, dry texture. Soft carbonation. Lightly sweet, spice and yeast finish. A nice session beer. Lots of flavor for 3.8%ABV. TomDecapolis (4636) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUL 28, 2009
Tap at Capones. Pours a hazy orange with little to no head. Aroma of lots of earthy/yeasty notes, spicy Belgian yeast notes, citrus and Pilsner malt. Flavor of was very peppery, earthy and yeasty. Saison esters, bready pils malt and citrus. Dry and crisp mouthfeel. callmemickey (4561) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2012
A: Hazy pale-straw yellow.. Looked milk-ish in complexion. Smallish white head which slowly receded but left little lacing.
S: Soft fruit character, orange, peach, banana. Lightly spiced. Subtle yeast.
T: Much like the nose with a bit more of the malt coming through. Again light yeast highlights a soft fruit palate. No real funk or farmhouse flavors.
M: Oddly refreshing. Perhaps its the low alcohol content combined with the soft fruits. Light, almost juicy weight. Clean finish.
O: An interesting saison-grisette... worth a try for sure.
