I am a Guinness fan and this Farmhouse Ale is an excellent reminder of it's goodness. The smell is above average and the mouthfeel and taste compliment each other and leave no bad aftertaste. My flavor preference is currently the dark and full flavored beer and this is one I would drink again and buy in bulk in the future.

Really nice saison...from an American (large) low-priced craft brewer. Good stuff!

I recently had "La Fin Du Monde" on tap...and honestly, I think this beer compares favorably to it...though yes, they are different styles--still a saison is similar to a tripple. No, it's not as good, but...hey, it's less than $9 for a sixer.

Has an earthy, almost sour beer taste--like a homebrew, but fresh and refreshing--definitely a classic saison. I can guarantee, if this beer were from Belgium, in a fancy bottle...it would be rated quite high. As it is, it's a bargain!

Try it friends, I think you'll love it.
