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.

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

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.

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.
