I have tried many beers and many saisons. American brewers have a very difficult time creating saisons like those from Belgium. The balance on this beer is nice. Citrus and mild funkyness. Kind of a dry tone to it there as well. I like it. For me, it is beers like this that are defining the craft beer movement of America.

A: Pours a golden yellow with a hugh amount (2 full fingers) of cloud white head. The lacing on my glass is amazing the entire drinking session.
Ar: Peppery, funky, with some crisp hop notes.
T: Wow! This is an amazing farmhouse beer. Crisp, citrus hops, Funky brett notes with kind of a grassy flavor. Really complex for the style. Nice mix of grains and funk topped off by hops.
M: Light and crisp with moderate carbonation.
Overall: An great farmhouse/Saison beer. This is one that I usually compare other beers of the same style to. I can say that I will have a few of these in my celler and can't wait for this to gain even more funk over time.

Thanks to yourefragile for sharing. Served in a cervoise. Pours a moderate grain color with a short white head. The nose has an add aroma of bread yeast alongside a touch of spice and fruit. Flavor is a bit fruity with a touch of spice, but also has a pronounced character of instant-rise bread yeast. Medium body; dry. Didn’t get too much out of this one, and certainly nothing from the Brett.

A golden yellow body with a fluffy two finger cap. Decent retention with some lines of lacing inside the glass.
The nose is inviting, nothing too overpowering. A touch of mustiness, lemons, damp hay, and some spicy clove. Some fruity esters come to the front as this warms a bit.
Grainy backbone. Hay and musty earthy with some fruity/lemon overtones. The finish is sharp and crisp. Almost biting, with a lingering brett barnyard flavor.
Light body. Amazingly crisp and dry. Excellent for a hot summer day when looking for something with a little extra punch.
This saison is welcome in my rotation any day. Clean flavors with a god amount of complexity. No real complaints here. A solid beer.

Poured from the bomber into a goblet.
Appearance: The beer pours a cloudy golden/yellow color with a finger of fluffy white head that leaves a good size layer on top of the pour. There is a real small amount of lacing.
Smell: This beer is very light and quite earthy. I'm getting the brett, but there is no sourness showing up.
Taste: Just like the smell, this is a very light beer. Earthy with some herbal and funk notes, but again no sourness. Reminds me a bit of a pilsner. The finish is very crisp.
Mouthfeel: The body is on the light side of medium with tons of fluffy carbonation and a slightly dry finish.
Overall: I enjoyed this more than I would have guessed. The finish could have been drier, but that is my only complaint. I'd definitely have another.
