Had on tap at Hinterland in Milwaukee.
L: Brilliant gold under a ½” cream colored foam cap that produces sheets of lace. S: Cherry and bread.
T: The cherry is well balanced by the bready malt flavors.
F: Clean, creamy medium body, medium high carbonation.
O: This is a saison with some cherry added – the cherry does not overwhelm the beer allowing it to maintain its saison character.

Door County cherry infused Saison was poured on cask at Casanova beer cave last week. Review from notes (this was one of my favorites from the fest).

A: Poured from a 12oz. plastic cup containing about 1/3 insanely cloudy golden straw beer and 2/3 Mississippi river dam foam. Guy said it was a little over-active in the cask. Appearance is extremely cloudy yellow, the head I received (pun intended) was appropriate and normal looking.

S: Dank farmhouse smells up front, with some wet hay and gunnysack. There is a bit of fruity sweetness hidden behind the farm.

T: Very solid traditional style here, with a very present but not overpowering funk up front. Once you get past the barnyard yeast, there are some grassy hops and some slightly sweet-tart cherry notes, although the cherry could have played a bigger role.

M: Smooth and slightly creamy. Despite excessive foaming, carbonation was average at best, which actually worked well with the appearance.

O: A very nice beer, one of (if not the) best I had all day. I really appreciated the adherence to style and the infusion of a little bit of fruit to the mix. I would gladly drink this again.
