look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

22oz. Bottled October 2011.

Pours a lightly hazy, glowing gold with a modest one-finger head. Nice lacing.

The aroma is pungently funky and a touch sulfuric. Fresh, American hops come through as well.

The flavor is bitter and dry, with lots of leafy hop flavor. Farmhouse flavors are apparent, and this beer is not particularly "clean" in that regard. Complex, but some off-flavors nip my excitement in the bud, namely, plastic-like phenolics and a harsh, grainy finish. The mouthfeel is medium-light and could use a bit more carb to fluff things up.

A decent and hoppy Saison. Not very smooth or balanced, but interesting.

3.79/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a clear gold with thin fizzy white head, settles quickly leaving a couple of wispy runs. Smell: herbal, lightly grainy and bready, rindy and unripe banana notes. Taste: semi sweet pale, light stone fruit and pineapple, very herbal finish. Long finish eventually dries out but has a residual soapiness. It's alright. Think I've heard more about this one than is deserved. Dec 2013 bottling.
