Tasted at the Grovetoberfest in Miami, Fl.

A - Hazy to clear straw in color. Light orangy, honey color. Nothing of head.

S - Honey, tropical fruits, floral essences, and some spices are around on the smell of this beer. Very complex and heavy smell, but not a repugnant smell.

T - Lemony bitterness, spice hints like coriander, cloves. Hops with strong flavor are also in this beer. If I were master brewer I would tell you which hops this beer has. Also, honey and fruits are on the flavor.

M - Non sticky, smooth, and light, but with a lot of body.

O - Excellent beer with lots of flavor going around. A really unique beer.

I had the pleasure of enjoying a snifter of this at Capone's during their recent saison event. As other's have stated, this did strike more as a hefeweizen than a saison. It was straw colored, yet cloudy to the point of being both blonde and opaque. Crown was a creamy, two-finger thick bluff. The nose was fairly muted. Tastes of vanilla, lemon, and wheat permeated throughout, with a grapefruit type finish. Perfect summer beer, and the kind you can drink all day without tiring from its premise. I wish this stuff was bottled.

A: cloudy and golden. Minimal head.

S: lots of lemon. Some spice.

T: lots of lemon throughout. Sweet start and sour finish. Little of the spicey saison yeast with bread and light malt notes.

M: light body mild to moderate carbonation.

Overall: reminds me of a lemonade beer like I had in vienna but much better. Different from other saisons. A little off from the typical saison but very enjoyable.

12 oz poured into an over-sized snifter

A: Over the top head, thick as could be, probably resulting from the end of the keg. Quickly dissipates to leave a lacey film around the edges. Body is a light honey yellow that is the slightest hazy appearance.

S: Crisp, refreshing malts with hints of bready notes. Quite enjoyable, smells of potent toasty malts. Some herbal, spicy hops but really subdued.

T: Crisp bitterness starts off on the lips transitioning into a welcoming fruity, herbal hop notes. Fresh earthy taste lingers around.

M: Carbonation bitterness all the way around mixes with a slight fruityness this Table Saison incredibly drinkable while full of flavor.

O: Excellent beer for the hot summer days, outside / tailgating. One you could take a sip and come back to an hour later like you never left off. Very impressed. I can appreciate this a little more with out the Belgian yeast I am accustomed too with Farmhouse ales.

On tap in the tasting room presented with a hazy straw colored snifter with a small ring of shuts bubbles around the walls
Smell is all saison yeast
Taste is tart saison yeast with a hidden sweetness getting beat back anytime it shows its face
Mouthfeel is light and drying very crisp
Overall this right after guava grove makes it seem like the little brother but he holds his own and quite nice.

a treat i got to try in tampa, and i have to say their lighter beers impress the hell out of me.

Nice head of three inches or more caps off the top of the glass and falls down effortlessly into a broken and rocky cushion of foam. Light aroma of bananas and pears, hints of light peach and a floral, albeit light hop note to it. Warming brings out a touch of grain that serves to balance it quite nicely. Smooth, elegant flavor. Light notes of fruit, touches of grass and a slight floral flavor all combine quite nicely.
