Pours incredibly clear, easily making it the clearest saison I've ever had. Very cider-like in appearance - straw-colored body and absolutely no head what-so-ever. Plenty of fine sediment in suspension being pushed around by mild streams of carbonation.
Good but very light. Biscuits are prominent. Mild funk with adequate spicing (pepper, coriander, and clove). Bubble gum and banana notes can be found, but they are so light you'd be forgiven if you missed them.
Refreshing but again, light. Banana and Sourdough stand out. Light citrus notes. Nice spicing and balance, if not a hint on the bitter side. I would like to note that the warmer this one got, the more I enjoyed it... Do yourself a favor and serve this one at 40*-45*
Medium body. Good carbonation. Clean finish.
For a light saison, it's not bad but it left me quite underwhelmed. I prefer more potency, flavor, and funk from a saison.

3.26/5 rDev -8.7%

Light clear color with a respectable head. The nose had a grainy background, with hints of spice and yeasty-earthiness. The taste was very light, a wheat ale with a splash of lemon zest at the end and some gentle earthy spice. The feel was crisp and light, an easy drinker that disappears quickly.
If I was told this was a what beer, I would applaud it's slight twist with fun saison zesty flavors, but with the expectation in mind for a farmhouse ale, it was too light and boring. Fine taste, well-balanced and drinkable, but too plain for my preference.

12 oz. pour at the Old Village Hall in Lanesboro, MN.
A: Clear, pale gold with a white, rocky head that quickly dissipates but leaves behind lots of sticky lacing on the glass.
S: Light, fresh, grassy with a minimum of either hops or malt.
T: Clean, fresh taste, herbaceous, grassy, like a kolsch or helles. Reminiscent of Schell's Sommerfest.
M: Light, refreshing, good carbonation with a short finish. Crisp on the tongue.
O: Okay, but not my cup of tea. I doubt I'd order it again.
