First tried as part of Murrays @ Manly Belgian Feast, reviewed at the Local Taphouse.
Pours a slightly hazy chrome (?) colour with very eager head up the glass. Head is white, smallish bubbles but retaining a thin crown. Could be cloudier, but looks OK.
Smells decent. Not quite up on the funkadelic scale, but there's some nice earthy, organic barnyard aromas. Touch of lucerne and some stone fruit. A bit subdued but still, nice characters.
Taste is a bit more funky, with bolder and more prominent barnyard notes. Bitter in tone with some horse blanket character, touch of acidity but also some honey. Light and drinkable, with a mild spice and a touch of rubber as well. Not bad at all, very much on the drinkable side of farmhouse rather than the exciting side, where my tastes usually lie.
Mouthfeel is full, bit drying from the mid-palate on and finishing quite dry indeed. Decent.
Yeah, I question exactly how effective a farmhouse ale this is because it just seems a bit toned down. Good for drinkability, but you can get the same drinkability with more flavour as long as it's well-balanced. I feel this is all a bit toned down and repressed for me.

On tap at Murays at manly. Had a pint at start of evening and also as a palate cleanser at end of night. From notes....
Pours a hazy straw, head is good and so is lace. Aromas and taste are subdued but very much in the sessionable category, rather than the extreme category. Some light funky barnyard touches, a little lemon, and a tart and refreshing finish that is not puckering.
Excellent session ale.
