Enjoyed this on-tap at Lizardville, this beer was served to me in a tulip glass. Draws a clear, medium golden color with a nice, fluffy lookin white head about an inch thick when first served to me that settles to medium sized ring lining the inside of the glass along with some very nice lacing. Aromas of yeasty funk along with some fruits such as figs and apples. The taste pretty much follows suit, with some subtle malty sweetness upfront that gives way to some yeasty funk and a nice hint of green apple sour tartness that is followed by a subtle presence of fig, raisins, and perhaps a bit of plum. Rounded out with a slight touch of citrus hop bitterness which I feel accents the sour and tart notes very nicely. Has a crisp, yet smooth, medium to full bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Easy to drink in the way well crafted beer ought to be!

Pours a cloudy, golden color. 1/2 inch head of a white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of grapefruit, hint of pepper, strong yeast, hint of hop, slight sweet malt, slight pale malt, floral, and slight spices. Fits the style of a Saison / Farmhouse Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong yeast, sweet malt, hint of hops, floral, slight spice, hint of pepper, and a grapefruit. Overall, decent appearance, good aroma, good body, the grapefruit is subtle but still characteristic and pleasing.
