4.35/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 750 ml. bottle into a Hennepin flute. Bottle is about a year old--can't remember when exactly I laid it down.

A--Honeyed orange body with a one finger fizzy white head. Retention was considerable, lacing was superb down the glass. Lots of seafoam.

S--Make it funky. Whew. Some grassy hops back there, but mainly hay and horse. Plenty of barnyard going on. On top of that are some muted citric notes, some lemon and something even peachy maybe?

T--Peach and lemon give way to apricot. Three layers to the flavor profile. First, initial wave is all horse blanket and general funk. You can almost taste the cobwebs in the rafters. Strongest point of this beer, I think. Next wave is juicy and fruity, though not like the gum. Apricot laced with honey, backed by cereal grain. Lovely. Last wave is a sharp bitterness on the tongue that pulls it all back to gather your senses in for another taste. Well structured, complex saison.

M&D--Both are great. Mouthfeel is an easy carbonation with bright, snappy notes to keep it from being too thin. I'd drink this again in a heartbeat, though it ain't cheap here in Brooklyn.

Highly recommended. A classic take on the style from an American brewer. Masters Belgian yeast, and makes me proud to say I share the home state of this excellent brewery.

4.21/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a chalice from 750
A- pours a golden, translucent color with an enormous white bubbly head that dissipates before a couple blinks. Nice looking beer.
S- Belgian farmhouse yeast, white grapes, a hint of citrus, maybe orange zest. Some bready yeast flavor as well with light floral hoppiness.
T- the white grape is persistent, followed by a little peppery spice and some pear. A nice amount of earth, barnyard funk (Maybe Brett) and a grassy note as well.
M- this beer is super-carbed. Mouthfeel is medium with a snappy finish. Alcohol is hidden well, so be careful.
O- this is a fantastic saison that I'm glad I picked up. Will seek out again.

4.01/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a hazy medium yellow in color with heavy amounts of active visible carbonation rising pretty quickly from the bottom of the glass as well as some straw yellow + golden yellow highlights. The beer has a three to four finger tall dense foamy off-white head that very slowly reduces to a half finger thick layer covering the entire surface of the beer with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of pale malts, spices, lemon citrus, and floral hops.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of pale malts with slightly stronger flavors of lemon citrus and spicy yeast. There is a light to moderate flavor of floral hops that impart a light amount of bitterness in the finish which lingers slightly.

M: Light to medium bodied with heavy amounts of carbonation. Crisp, almost prickly upfront and finishes smooth. Hints of dryness.

O: A very nice saison but one that feels a little bigger than some of the others - alcohol is hidden but slightly present just under the surface which makes it more of a sipping saison than a truly refreshing one. Definitely worth grabbing.
