My first offering from the Bruery, I scored a bottle of this while in Orlando last month. Figuring I'd better get this open and consumed sooner than later, I was immediately grabbing for a towel as foam steadily crept out of the bottle. Upon landing this ale into my glass chalice I noticed the towering foamy head. Once this frothiness settled I notice the bubble activity rising from the golden-yellow body of this brew. Refreshing and crisp, I am only reminded of a beer I happened to drink just hours earlier, Orval !! I hardly would have expected this (I'm used to a Saison having a sweet fruit-funkiness due to my frequent samplings of Boulevard's Tank 7, but I guess I need to try more of this style to get the right outlook on what to expect). Malty, flavorful with tangy spicy notes. I wish the dryness I sense after each sip was somehow more muted. Overall this is solid to me; I'm too much a fan of this style (albeit a newer one) to be disappointed. I want to seek out other notable farmhouse styles to compare, but this one I'll grab again anytime (if geography allows).
