A: Dark and cloundy yellow, very hazy, light comes through but nothing clear at all about this one.
S: I can smell the farmhouse funk and soon as I begin to pour, getting some lemon peel and maybe a little orange, grass.
T: lots of carbonaiton as it hits the tounge, getting a lot of the funk upfront, grassy lemon flavor on the the back end very subtle on the lemon though.
Overall very good farmhouse ale, a lot of great flavor, funk, and carbonation make for a very enjoyable beer.

4.03/5 rDev +0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours with a finger of bubbly light head. Straw yellow with some darker orange accents. Light random lacing. Very low active carbonation, especially for a saison.
Smell: orange peel and lemon grass jump out on the front. A slight, peppery yeast backbone with solid bready undertones. Easy, fruit forward aroma.
Taste: Spices and pepper are surprisingly present on the front. Rustic, earthy tones continue into the body. Lemony zest with some brighter fruit tones as well pick up on the back end. Finish is dry but refreshing.
Mouthfeel: Carbonation is dialed back, yet still has the feel of a saison. Bright fruits mix well with spice tones.
Overall: No surprise Surly brings another high quality brew. Really enjoyed the carbonation in this brew which really made it an easy drinking saison. Excellent balance of fruits and spice.
