3.4/5 rDev -13.3%
Color: Orange/golden color similar to apple juice. Careful pour left only a thin line of head.
Smell: As expected the smell is typical Saison/Farmhouse funk. Bready aroma mixed in with some subtle fruit and spice notes.
Taste: Very light taste, nothing is overpowering in this beer. One thing I noticed was that this beer was not a carbonated as I expected. Light fruits such as grapes come through along with a pleasant grassy flavor. Not much spice from this beer, but the finish of this beer leaves an earthy taste on the palate.
O: A solid Saison that was pleasant and easy to drink, just as it should be.

Hazy orange, fizzy tall white head, light lacing. looking good.
Well, this did come out of a green bottle so I'm not surprised at the lightly skunked nose. through that though there is hope of funk, yeast, grass and a little citrus.
The skunk jabs first but is quickly wiped away by crisp hops, citrus, a grassy sweetness, and delicious yeast.
Highly carbonated, dry and sharp. Spot on.
I know some of the classics like Foret, DuPont, etc come in green bottles, so maybe the light skunk is meant to happen? If that's so I prefer it without.

375ml bottle - $6.98 at Sherlock's in Marietta, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a hazy, bright yellow body with a stiff, expanding, white head that never quite fizzles out.
Smell: Yeast, earthy nose, with spicy, herbal, cracked, gently toasted grain tones, like spice and grains discarded in a basement with a thin drip of fruit and citrus juice.
Taste: Rustic, coarse yet smooth grains layered with tastes of biscuits, sourdough, sliced pear, light banana, white pepper, and a coating of musty, earthy yeast. Restrained sweetness. Floral, clove-dosed citrus juice. Minerally. Spicy, dry, effervescent finish with a hint of white grapeskin.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Well-carbonated.
Overall: A yeast quaffer if there ever was one!

375ml bottle poured into snifter. Purchased in Davis.
A: Pours a cloudy apricot gold with a two fingers of fluffy bright white head. Definitely pour this one slowly, it wanted to froth up. There’s a lot of yeast in the bottom the bottle and a few floaties got loose in my glass. Head faded into thick quarter-inch film that lasted the whole beer through.
S: Tons of dry earthy spice on the nose. Clove, pepper and earth are strong with hints of golden fruits, wheat, straw, orange-zest, and yeast.
T: Strong base of straw, wheat and toasted grain flavors, mixed with peppery spices, yeast and a kiss of sweet fruit. The finish is earthy and dry and the aftertaste has notes of wood, clove and Belgian yeast.
M: Bubbly, boarder line frothy, carbonation that is soft and fluffy on the palate. Drying mouthfeel, touch of sweetness, and a medium-full body.
O: A solid saison all-around but it falls short of the greats of the style. A bit too mild and wet overall but I’d drink it again.
