First had: on tap at TJ's, Paoli, PA

Golden-yellow pour, slightly hazy, with a finger or so of fluffy white head that retained well and left a bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma of pale malt sweetness, citrus, spicy yeast. Similar taste, malt sweetness, rock candy, citrus notes, grass, yeast, herbal hops, moderate bitterness, slightly medicinal. Light-medium body, easily drinkable, but falls short overall for the style.

Huge thanks to Centennial for sending this one my way. Poured into a tulip. This one pours a slightly hazy golden straw color with three fingers of fluffy white head. Thick gobs of sticky lace.

Reminds me somewhat of a cider. Apples in the aroma with a sharp tart edge. The pallet gives of notes of sweet apples, wet hay and a bit of grass. Mostly sweet with a funky edge.

The body is medium with soft carbonation. Overall this one is solid. Enjoyable enough.

Thin head on a clear golden body with nice lacing. Aroma contains candied fruit, mostly orange and Belgian yeast. Flavor is pretty much your generic saison with spicy Belgian yeast, clove, corriander, banana citrus and light malt mustiness. Medium to light body and moderate carbonation. A very standard but still good saison.

Re-rate summer of 2012 from tap at Sly Fox Brewery

Pours clear golden yellow with thin slightly off white head. The nose has hints of yeast, notes of lemon and clove with a faint bit of banana and candied sugar. The taste is overly sweet and sugary, a little thin in the back. Candied lemon and banana with just a touch of spice to it but not enough to balance. light body, thin, highly carbonated.

A-pours a golden straw colored head with a hint of haze and a thin bubbly white head.

S-yeast up front, light lemon and orange peel notes, oily aroma, floral herbs, corriander.

T-yeasty lemon, orange peel, corriander, notes of floral grassy herbs, light bitterness in back. very simple and straight forward.

M-grainy feel in a good way with a syrupy texture and nice carbonation to back it up with a lightly dry finish.

D-very easy drinker, very straight forward beer, not a lot happening here but still a great summer drink.
