I had this beer on-tap in a pint glass (a legit pint, not a short one) at Nostrand Pub in Brooklyn. I guess there are a couple of Sly Fox breweries on this site ... I've gone with the Grisette with the most reviews.
Appearamce: medium light gold with plenty of haze. Head is a finger of ivory foam with limited retention and lace. Still not a bad saison.
Smell: farmy and funky right up front; this is one dank horsey saison. I can get behind this.
Taste: plenty of funk along with a bit of farmhouse sourness and a hint of diacetyl. For some reason, this all rubs me the right way. I like a saison with a lot of weird character.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a ton of carbonation and a great creaminess; quite satisfying indeed! This might be one of the best-textured saisons I've had. Woo!
Overall: I really like this beer. I feel like I could quaff tons of it.
Serving type: on-tap

A Pours light opaque straw color with a white foaming head.
S- Light banana and clove mixed in with a mild funk.
T- A crisp bready flavor that finishes clean with a little pepper. There is a Belgian funk that plays well with the other flavors with a perfect trio of tastes. The yeast and malts are on point to say the least.
M- clean with a Belgian bite at the end.
O- This is a very satisfying beer. None of the flavor components overpowers the others and this is quite enjoyable for the warmer weather.

Nice light farmhouse. Hazy light orange with good lacing. Funky aroma. Very fruity with a clean finish. Great beer for summertime. Experienced during a Sly Fox tap takeover. Not a huge fan if the style but I would try this again if I ran across it and it was very hot outside. And there was nothing else available.
