Brewers Description of this Summer Farmhouse Ale:

“Golden Cap Saison is a modern interpretation of a traditional farmhouse ale. A soft, pale beer, Golden Cap embodies the flavors and aromas of summer fields. Brewed with an ancestor of wheat called spelt, its straw-colored body, lively carbonation and a unique fermentation profile evoke fresh cut hay and cracked peppercorn.”

Golden Cap craft summer farmhouse ale is perfect for hot months.

Our Review:

This summer farmhouse ale is inspired by the “Golden Cap” worn by Dorothy and the Wicked Witch in the Wizard of Oz to summon the flying monkeys.

Golden Cap produces a cloudy golden color with a somewhat peachy malty aroma. The initial flavor is of grapefruit with a grassy undertone and a malt aftertaste. Tartness dominates the experience, even though it does not cross into the wicked land of bitterness.

Golden Cap is refreshing and would be a good outside patio summer farmhouse ale. Try with some happy hour appetizers which may enhance the enjoyment of this craft beer, but don’t invite the monkeys.
