Pours a cloudy yellow color topped with a big, fluffy white head that sticks well. Fresh, clean, floral farmhouse aroma...creamy, dried bananas, flowers, pithy citrus, chardonnay, potporri, and hay. Yeasty flavor; spicy cracked pepper, herbs, bubblegum, and bready grain. Fluffy, well-carbonated mouthfeel. Maybe a little too pointedly yeasty, but a pretty nice Saison overall.

Clouded tangerine gold with a large foamy white head. Big and frothy... Aroma is delightfully fragrant with flowers, hay, bread grains, grass, citrus, apple, white wine, and perhaps passionfruit. Dry and crispy aroma.... Taste is also dry, peppery, spicy, and very floral with banana, peach, and various wild yeasty flavors. Clean yet very farmhouse... Mouthfeel is unusually foamy and entertaining. Slick, smooth, and creamy... This beer is exactly the type of beer that should have a tractor on the label. Pretty good stuff that totally fits the wild saison style.

Pours a hazy golden straw with lots and lots of fluffy white head that lingers and leaves lacing.

Nose has a lot of tropical fruit, mango, pineapple, some white pepper, bread.

Taste follows nose closely. Clean, crisp. Finishes dry and slightly bitter.

Good beer. Light refreshing and subtle.

Nose: Subtle and piquant character of hay, lemon peel, clove and dough.

Mouth: Finesse and authentic rusticity with a gorgeous pear / pineapple play at the front sustained by sweet notes of hay, banana, clove and dough. Spritzy and angular.

Bottom Line: Pretty rustic, elegant and complex. A very well done Saison with remarkable drinkability, definitely not for the inexperienced as it's aromatics could prove themselves elusive, to say the least.

Very estery aroma, with notes of banana, pear, must, and floral tones. Flavor finishes very dry, earthy, and fairly bitter. Up front, fruity and bubblegum esters add character to the somewhat sweet malt backbone. Alcohol warmth is noted. Not my favorite style, and a bit too earthy.
