Craft Beer of the Week Award
Sly Fox Saison Vos - Sly Fox Brewing Company, Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA
Seductive aromas of fruit, yeast, earth and sweet malt rise up as the 750 ml bottle is uncorked. A thick, chunky head of meringue lays firmly on the body of hazy, golden straw. Carbonation is classic in its style of softness. The palate is treated to a light fruity profile of lemon and tropical fruit, delicately laced with florals and white pepper. Grainy earthiness and light spice titillate the tastebuds. Warmth feathers the throat, as a satiating bitterness lingers on the back of the tongue.
