look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

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!
