A great farmhouse ale. Theres a slight dry hope nose but imo it wasnt needed. This brew is so damn tasty. If u like saisons, chk this local west coast beer out!

Appearance- Pours up absolutely no head excepting a few bubbles which appear as if they would have formed a pure cotton white head. The body is hazy, pale straw/weak lemon which glows a sunny but muddy lemon color when held up to the light.

Nose- Not getting any saison notes yet but there is faint hop profile that has nice mustiness (think armpit or dirty feet). The bottle seems to suggest some citrus- maybe orange, maybe lemon. Pretty subdued but still enjoyable. Fades considerably after a few minutes.

Taste- Some citrus around the edges (orange, lemon) with some grapefruit bordering on orange peel. Hints of spice on the finish from the yeast. The mustiness of the nose is the most dominant aspect of the flavor profile but is rather mild. The spice (mostly clove, some coriander, some cinnamon) starts to fade as I drink more of this beer. At the moment, this beer is slightly above average as it lacks complexity and presence. It also seems somewhat thin. Some fruity esters- a splash of white grape. All around this is a fairly mediocre beer.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied with practically no carbonation. This seems to be a real problem for this brewery. Some styles can sustain this but certainly not a saison. Somewhat of a dry finish.

Drinkability- Very sessionable and pretty cheap for a saison. Unfortunately, it's also pretty boring for a saison as well.

Overall- There's a reason these styles cost money. While this is not a bad beer, I'm on the fence as whether I should suggest trying it. At 5 bucks for a bomber, it won't hurt your wallet but it won't wow your taste buds either.

Pours a murky light gold with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of citrus zest, Belgian yeast, spice, chalk, and slight tropical fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest, spice, and Belgian yeast flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop and yeast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is light, tasty, and very easy to drink.

Serving type: can.

If I could get this beer, which is marketed as a session saison, for a session price, it would be a go-to. It is actually very tasty, with a piney hop profile very similar to Oskar Blues Pinner. Fans of hop-forward session IPAs should give this a try. It's a bit more funky/yeasty, but the hops still dominate. I could drink this all day.
