4.05/5 rDev +3.6%
A: Pours a translucent golden color with a foamy/creamy white head.
S: Spices dominate the nose, particularly cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg, maybe some clove, behind which are sweet candied fruits, dark fruits, figs, plums, raisin.
T: Taste is much fruitier, but still spice-heavy, with cardamom, clove and nutmeg. Some light fruits, some sweet candied fruits, some dark fruits.
M: On the light side of medium bodied and smooth, especially for a saison.
O: Pretty good. If you like your saisons spicy, you'll love this one.

(Served in a globe glass)
A- This beer pours a pale lemon yellow body that is hazy with a thick sticky snow white head of cream that has some nice lacing. There is a swirl of microbubbles billowing to the surface.
S- The hint of pils malt is followed by a soft lemon pith with some slight soapy qualities to it.
T- The dry grapefruit pith flavor is soft with some field corn hints to it and a dry finish that has some sulfur or pepper hints to it. It is a clean but dry finish.
M- This beer has a light mouthfeel with a crisp fizz in the finish.
O- This is a nice looking beer and pretty taste but it is a bit dry with very little yeast profile to make it a session beer. Especially if price is a factor.

From Sydney Wine Merchants. fridged. no BB.
A - light straw, two finger head stays nicely. Lines of lace.
S - dry, lemons. Muted and one dimensional.
T - funk, earth, lemons, Belgian yest, spice, saison on the money.
M - highly carbonated, lively, zesty, tho in all that, quite lightweight and just a hint watery.
O - a very approachable Saison, despite light ABV. Very light and refreshing as a drink after a few ales at the club. Smell is less than half the story.

Wow session farmhouse eh? Haven't had many of those! Into a pint glass at $2.29 for the single can.
A - Bam! Hit with some killer carbonation getting well over two inches of head atop of a semi clear almost light beer looking watery yellow. Was able to get a pillow effect over the rim with the foam!
S - Has a distinct lemon grass and peppery smell. Some herbal hops and belgium like yeasts. Smells rather good.
T - Dry herbal hops, mild peppery zing and a dry effervescent like finish. It's good.
M - Not as bubbly and carbonated as I thought. Very on par with the style. A bit light but it's to be expected.
Overall its a very decent session farmhouse beer worth trying. They makes some pretty great beers.

poured 12oz can into snifter.
A - Hazy golden straw with a foamy 3 finger nice white head and decent lacing. As soon as I crack the can open the foam starts to build, just marvelous.
S - Light grain, grass, cracker, lemon zest and hints of pepper. Not much funk or yeast to it.
T - A nice lemony zest, grains, light cracker notes. I pick up the yeast in the flavor along with a slight pepper note on the finish. Very refreshing.
M - Light body with excellent carbonation, crisp and refreshing.
O - What a fantastic easy drinking session sasion that is perfect for summer. I will be buying more six packs of this one.
