Consumed Wed 09 Jul 14.
Poured from 375ml bottle into a larger glass on my last night in Virginia Beach.
It poured with a small head that lasted most of the drink. Colour was off yellow.

Smell was classic earthy farmhouse - almost herbaceous.

Taste was refreshing with a little citrus on the pallet. No spice detected and was missing the farmhouse funk of other saisons. Not sure of this is good or bad as I am still developing an appreciation of this style of ale.

After a couple of stinking hot days in VB I found this to be an awesome beer. I could see Monsieur Perrier LaPadite downing one of these after a long day toiling on his farm, rather than the milk he shared with Hans Lada in Inglourious Basterds.

This lighter style of saison is more to my liking and will look for it again.

Bottle bought from chucks in seattle. Bottled on May 27 2014. Thin white head that fades immediately. Smells of biscuit malt, sweet, earthy with a hint of spice. Tastes bready, with a dry spicy finish. Good example of a saison but there is a flavor that I can't quite put my finger on which sticks out and makes it less tasty than others. I'd like more hop character on the finish.
