A: 4.25 - Light orange gold color, hazy, with a thick head over a cm tall, persistent. Great lacing.
S: 4.0 - Nicely fruity, with peppery, bandaid-like clove notes, touch of tartness.
T: 4.0 - Initial bitterness (not too much hop flavor) gives way to a soft yeasty fruitiness. Phenols less present than I expected, but add a little bit of a clovey note at the end, where the malt leaves a touch of creamy sweetness.
M: 3.5 - Thin, watery. Could use more carbonation.
O: 3.75 - Decent effort from Southern Star, though there are much better saisons.

Cloudy golden pour with a minimal white head. Really nice sour smell with just a bit of yeast and clove. Taste is really nice with lots of yeast and spicy upfront. There’s also a good mildly tart lemon presence that lingers through from start to finish. Finish with a slightly tart citrus flavor.

This one pours a semi-cloudy golden color and hs a nice white bubbly white head that is quickly settled and leaves little to no lacing down the glass.

The nose is spicy hops with breadiness and hints of cloves, lemon zest all riding on a bed of rich maltiness.

The taste is drier and more bitter than I would expect for a Farmhouse ale, but it is from Texas. This one is dry in flavor that has a subdued malt that carries the hops all across the palate with a nice dominant flavor that is not too bitter and doesn't linger and has a clean finish.

The mouthfeel is a tad watery but acceptable for the style.

Overall it is drinkable and enjoyable and I will definitely drink some more. A good offering from Southern star.
