New Holland Brewing
They Say: “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.”
From a bottle sporting a flying monkey in a field of grain on its label poured a frothy golden beer with tight caramel and dried fruit aromas. Surprisingly creamy for such a light colored brew, we were quite pleased by a sweet yet slightly tart mix of flavors. Caramel, sweet spices and hints of banana were brought together in a way that reminded all of us of bananas foster. Rounded off with a dry slightly bitter finish, we felt this beer could take us places.
