tmoreau (4734) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2013
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and dispensed to a snifter with a hazed, golden hue, soft white head foam that expeditiously diminished to a ring & film, and left some spotty lacing. The aroma started with honey sweetness, and continued with light grain, some mild but funky yeast scent, esters as lemon & pear, and light spice. Light to medium bodied, esters were similar in the flavor, hop bitterness was lingering and earthy, and light tartness complemented the spritz of the carbonation. A touch of dryness and noticeable alcohol proceeded with the hops into the finish. Flavorful and expressively stronger than many sampled Saisons. More suited for sipping than "thirst crushing". imo dinkle50 (1583) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2013

Crashed one of these thirst crushing brews on draft, it has a ncie spice, very drinkable. BelvidereIPA (140) - Belvidere, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2013
Tap from the FFF brewpub. Pours hazy and pale, with substantial head. Citrus and banana on the nose. Crisp, refreshing, very well done saison. FFF has the tendency to get too aggressive with their brewing (with good reason, it produces some great beers). This is a very restrained beer and a good one.
