As the story goes, the charm of the Cap hails an otherwise mischievous band of winged-monkeys to carry out any three commands its owner wishes, such as carrying you from vast scarlet poppy fields to Emerald City, or even to the comfort of a country farmhouse. Golden Cap Saison however, brings the comfort to you with its modern interpretation of a traditional farmhouse ale. A soft, pale beer, Golden Cap accentuates the flavors and aromas of summer fields. Brewed with an ancestor to wheat called spelt, and bottle-conditioned; it's straw-colored body accentuated with lively carbonation and unique fermentation profile evoke fresh cut hay and cracked peppercorns. Ep-pe, pep-pe, kak-ke! Hil-lo, hol-lo, hel-lo! Ziz-zy, zuz-zy, zik!

A pretty good saison that favors the lemon flavor. Almost reminds me of a candy lemon drop which is not a bad thing. Overall not a bad beer.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2015 Bottle: Bright straw-yellow, though murky and hazy throughout with a stark white head and some nice lacing. Lemon zest and Lemon Pledge, light Candi sugar, gets more "Belgian-esque" as it warms up; think along the lines of a tripel more than a saison. Taste contains a very slight lemony tartness along with some residual sugary sweetness, musky, dry, and "worn-out" hops, bready malt, and a very slight dry, yeasty funk in the finish. Slick, dry, crisp finish on this thin-medium bodied saison. Saison-tripel hybrid, just a bit better than New Hollands replacement, Monkey King.

hotstuff (5077) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 11, 2013
Backlog rating 1-27-2009 (Bottle) This beer pours a medium sized white fizzy frothy head that has pour retention, slightly hazy body, fair amount of lacing, lively carbonation, and the hue of the body is pale yellow. The Aroma is coriander, wheat, fruity, malty, and biscuits. This beer tastes sweet, spicy, fruity, and wheat. The Palate is tingly and this is a light-medium bodied beer. This beer is quaffable and refreshing and would be a beer I would consider drinking in the summer.

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Draft at craft ale house. Pours hazy yellow with a big white head. There is tons of carbonation in the glass. The aroma has a ton of sweet citrus fruit, almost like a juice box. The taste has a nice hop kick and a dry, lemon finish. There is a bit of pepper spice.

PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2013
12 oz. Bottle. Not a bad saison, and a great price. Banana scent, spice, peppercorn, hay. Hazy gold pour with a foamy white head and lots of floaties. Light body with a frothy feel. Hay to pepper to banana to spice flavor, clove, and a sweet tangy finish.
