COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As we kick off our Summer seasonal, Golden Cap saison, we’re excited to roll out a single-batch seasonal, “Four Witches” black saison. It’s an opportunity to explore flavor within a remarkably interpretive style. Saisons are intriguing beers as they have traditional roots, yet are a delicious forum for variation and development.

The Four Witches art, illustrated by Kyle Bice, develops on Golden Cap’s theme, with a nod to Wizard of Oz, as L. Frank Baum wrote the book while summering in Holland, MI. White and dark roasted wheat provide deceptively delicious body, and a playful reference to Oz’s contrast between good and wicked witches. Caramel rye and barley continue the story, along with a unique yeast character and mild spicing.

Unique, but something I could not drink much of. Black, very dry. Like the base for something that had to be added. Aroma was OK. FlandersNed.

FROTHINGSLOSH (8069) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a medium sized foamy-soapy dark brown head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was musty, yeasty, wood, burnt toast, fig and funk. The flavor was tart, sour, bitter and tangy with notes of wood, red wine, oregano and funk. Long finish. Medium body. Pretty awful - drain poured.

2.2
AirForceHops (7692) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 23, 2017
Willrunforbeer’s fridge clean out. 2013 vintage. 750ml bottle. Pours black with very thin tan head. Aroma is spicy, black pepper, light roast, and yeasty.

Taste has a black pepper throughout the entire sip. Maybe dark fruit and yeast. Gosh damn that yeast is spicy! Yikes! Entire to spicy of a finish. To be fair, this maybe held way to long but I’m not sure it matters.
