look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle pours a mostly clear gold color with a small white head. Not enough retention or haze for a 'typical' farmhouse brew.

Nose is honeyed grains with a grassy hop aroma. A fair amount of yeast presence surprisingly…a little tart and lemony with some sourdough. Nice.

Taste throws out more of the lemongrass yeast with a neutral, biscuity malt. Hops make their presence felt and crisp up the finish nicely. While this isnt going to compete with a fresh Saison DuPont or the like, it is not priced as such either. For about a buck a bottle, I think this is a very welcome addition to the fridge. I'll easily go through the 12-pack I purchased and most likely will buy another. Well done Spoetzl...well done.
