Great Divide's take on the Farmhouse Ale is not disappointing. It has strong hints of fruit, especially citrus. On the initall taste i was very impressed, great feel on the mouth and not too hoppy. I would rate this higher, but for me it got a little bitter on my last few sips. Still a very good brew though.

A- Crystal clear yellow in the glass. About 1/2 finger of head with ok lacing.

S- Crisp green apple, over-ripened apple, and nice funk. Notes of pineapple, pepper, yeast, and orange.

T- Really nice. Sweet up front: green apple, pineapple, etc. Morphs into big sour funk with notes of pepper, wheat, bread, and a pretty big shot of earthy hop.

M- Medium body with nice crisp carbonation. Lightly drying with a nice funky sour aftertaste.

O- I've only recently started my journey into Saisons, and this one definitely helped guarantee I would keep going. I loved the contrasting effects of spicy, sweet, earthy hop, and sour in this one. The flavors morphed and mixed wonderfully from beginning to end.

12oz bottle, bottled on Feb 25 2014. Poured into a Boulevard tulip.

A: Cloudy, golden yellow with a big white head that receded quickly to a beefy ring at the glass edge and thin layer on the surface. Lots of lacing.

S: Citrusy, grapes, floral, wheat, earthiness. Nice appropriate funk to the nose.

T: Starts sweet, and turns slightly sour at the end. Bready. The wheat and citrus come through in a beautiful way, accented with a distinctly Belgian floral note. Very appropriately funky. Complex, not confusing.

M: Light, mildly carbonated. Tends toward the dry feel, finishes very clean, aftertastes are subtle.

O: I love the aroma, so subtle and inviting. The flavor profile is very complex, but everything is distinct and works together and each note is distinguishable and complements the others. This is a flavor symphony. The beer drinks easily. This American incarceration of a classic Belgian style rivals the best Belgians...and outshines many. This is truly an awesome beer.
