On tap at MM Brandon. Served in a snifter.

Color is an orange tinted yellow. Seved with a minimal white head that doesn't bother sticking around too long before falling to a patchy surface costing. Some light lacing. Aroma is full on Saison: lemon, bubble gum, yeasty phenols, and some nice light floral qualities. Taste is similar, but not as nuanced. Lots if bubble gum mixed with lemon and lemon zest. There I'd a slightly tart green apple quality that borders on sour along with a bit of pepper and spice. Body is on the thinner side of medium. There is mild astringent bitterness that is entirely out of place, but thankfully it's mild enough to not be too distracting. Overall, a nice Saison. Much more aggressive than most.

Cork date of 2015. Looks and smells promising. Tastes and feels spot on for style. The Orange is very subdued but is present in bitter form. Very delicate when cold but as it warms it gets more rich and syrupy. well ballenced Saison with very subtle citrus notes. Should try this if you love Citrus & the Farmhouse style

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, 2015 vintage bottling on the cork. Pours slightly hazy pale golden/yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big lightly tart/tangy oranges, lemon, orange peel, peach, melon, pear, apple, peppercorn, light banana/clove, wheat, biscuit dough, hay, straw, herbal, floral, grass, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, oranges/peels, and pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lightly tart/tangy oranges, lemon, orange peel, peach, melon, pear, apple, peppercorn, light banana/clove, wheat, biscuit dough, hay, straw, herbal, floral, grass, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate peppery yeast spiciness; light herbal/grassy/citrus peel bitterness, and wheat/fruit tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of oranges, lemon, orange peel, peach, melon, pear, apple, peppercorn, light banana/clove, wheat, biscuit dough, hay, straw, herbal, floral, grass, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, oranges/peels, and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitter/spiciness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, bready/grainy/sticky, and lightly tangy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is an excellent fruited saison. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, oranges/peels, and pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink with the modestly bitter/spicy/drying finish. Very flavorful for the ABV. Well rounded saison yeast complexity, with balanced oranges/peels and pils/wheat malts. Not a whole lot of brett, but solid presence. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

Had this on tap at The Sidecar Bar in Philly, PA served in a 10oz portion.

Caitlin is described as a coffee saison on the menu and what i see off the tap would not appear that way. Bright yellow with some polished gold points in the liquid with a small dismal cap that leaves slight stick. Smell is str8 up saison, a lot of floral action with some wildflower smell, bready yeast with a Belgian influence, lemons and faint malt. Not exactly getting any coffee thus far. Taste continues with the traditional saison flavor with an american twist. Floral up front with tropic fruit, lemon, orange and yeast, bready middle. I am thinking, where is the coffee, and than it hits me right on the end, and than fades. The roasty hint of coffee is so light that it is almost missed. So, 95% nice saison, followed by 5% coffee flavor towards the end. I like this approach, The saison is not lost at all, and the coffee is far from overbearing. I am wondering if this is one of their regular offerings with a different twist an additional ingredient in it, but perhaps this is a brand new recipe? The body is light and the taste is tight.

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at Southern Brewing & Winemaking. Poured into a pint glass.

A: Hazy gold that almost glows, with a one-finger white head that lasts pretty well. Decent lacing. Minimal visible carbonation.

S: Lemon, banana, biscuit malts. Overall kind of a fruity sweet impression.

T: Yeasty, bready flavors with the lemony banana, and some citrus bite.

M: Medium weight to brew, nice carbonation sensation on tongue. No discernible alcohol.

O: This is a very tasty saison. Highly recommended.
