My 100th beer!! I just want to thank my liver, my kidneys, and my tongue, you guys really rock. Oh, and Jesus, of course, even though he was a wino.

Awesome that my 100th beer is a farmhouse ale, and one that tastes almost identical to the farmhouse ale at Carters in Billings MT, which was the first beer style I found myself getting into early in my beer career. In case you've never had a good farmhouse, it tastes sort of sweetly tart, mild in body and flavor but oh so refreshing. Pairs great with meals since it won't overpower much, but still strong enough to stand alone. Smell is wonderful too, intoxicating. Cheers!

Light straw color. Bright color. Bleach white head with okay retention.

Tangy lemon, tangy pineapple, powdery yeast chalk, farmhouse yeast with some intensity. Has twang. Not bad.

Stable saison. Flavor is spot-on to style. Peppery yeast, pith, wheaty twang, hints of tropical fruits. Some floral notes. Perhaps, white tea. A bit huffy in carbonation. Body feels right, if not close to average. Lacks complexity, but delivers as a solid craft saison. Would drink again, but not seek it out to do so. Let it land on my lap.
