Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty beige color ale with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and great lacing. Aroma of dry hoppy notes with some floral notes with some funky yeast notes also clearly identifiable. Taste is also dominated by a mix of dry hoppy notes with nice floral undertones and some dry funky yeasty notes with some rustic malt also noticeable. Body is pretty full with good carbonation. Nice tasting beer but I would have like the hoppy notes to be more upfront with less of the funky yeast note apparent.

Just added to the chalk board, freshly tapped keg at the Bier Market.
Poured hazy orange tan color, large off white foam. Good head retention, nice looking lace.
Aroma of floral hops, with some funky yeast.
Taste has the same yeastiness, floral hops, malt base.
Body is on the full side, good carbonation level.
A good tasting hoppy saison.

Bottle 750ml. Pours a beautiful blonde with a thick rocky white head. Aroma is farmhouse (hay and barnyard) and nicely hopped, I can definitly smell citra hops. Very crisp and dry. Hop bitterness, cereal and belgiant yeast. Another awesome wild-ish saison by Dunham.

Nose of farmhouse yeasts and hops
In mouth, I searched the hops but they're gone! It's only this acrid and soil taste with a dry final.
Not my style at all

A: Top of the 750 was very clear but eventually hazed as the sediment was distributed. Heavy, thick sedimentary particles were visible. Creamy two and a half finger head. Amazing lacing and retention. Pale blonde in color.

S: Immediately out of the bottle I could detect citra and tropical smelling hops. Some peppery and citrus aromas come through as well as well as a slight tinge of alcohol as the beer warmed.

T: Perhaps the hops are the most dominant in this beer. They aren't overdone though and it doesn't taste like an IP-saison, if that's a thing. Bitterness is good and backing. Malt is very slightly sweet. Pepper and ester characters come through but take a bit of a back seat to the hops. Citra is the most prominent in the beer and I really don't get the piney flavors of something like Simcoe.

M: Absolutely bone dry, perhaps a bit much even for something like a saison. Carbonation is high but aids the beer in its refreshing quality.

O: Okay but it could have been better. Actual hop flavor wasn't really that close to the aroma. None the less though good beer just not everything I thought it was going to be.
