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!

Cloudy golden body with a thin white head. Fruity, sweet aroma. Like a can of fruit cocktail with a touch of spice. I would say that a decent peach aroma stands out. Full, slick mouthfeel with some good carbonation. Starts fruity and sweet and finishes with a nice punch of peppery spice. This is a pretty good beer that surprised me.

Transfer from BA review on 9-16-12- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance Served a hazy orange-amber colored brew with a tiny white head. The head faded very fast to leave just a hint of lacing. Smell The aroma is heaviest of some light fruit and a good dose of earthy hop smell. With these aromas are some smells of a funky sour apple and hay like nature as well as a light bready biscuit smell. Taste the taste begins somewhat bready and wheat like with some yeast andsweeter lemon notes mixed within. Soon, some sour apple and more tart flavors come to the tongue. These create a rather pleasant slightly tart and bready flavor on the tongue. At the end a very light more herbal and earthy hop flavor come to the tongue and leave a very nice flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel The body of the beer is on the light to average side with a carbonation level that is very average. The lighter body and average level of carbonation are quite nice for the sour and tart flavors, while also making it very drinkable. Overall Quite delicious and very easy to drink. It has a good blend of sour, sweet and bready. One to try.

Pours a hazy golden color but without much of a head. Has a sweet nectar aroma. Flavor is yeasty and sweet honey, with some additional spices I couldnt quite put my finger on...maybe the peppercorn and hay, and maybe even lemon judging from the other comments on the beer. Whatever is in it, the beer is flavorful, if a bit too syrupy towards the end. Has a nice, smooth medium body feel. I enjoyed it.

Bottle from trade with JB. Pours out a yellow color with a white head on it. Smell is fruity, full of hay, and a slight hop bitterness in the nose. Taste smooth with pretty high carbonation. Not a bad Saison, but not one of my Favs.

I liked it. It was different, and yes, heavy on the tart, but I thought it had a good degree of funk. Yeast noticeable on the nose, a bit less in the body. From Wegs in Erie.

bottle. golden with small head. lemony saison with light hop bite. not much in the way of funk, but there is the tartness from the lemon.
