Got this in a trade with Scm2787 to even things up. Thanks...
Not really a fan of farmhouse ales/saisons .. but this one was pretty good.. a bit hoppy and spicy but super clean and well rounded. Beautiful mouthfeel nice finish and exceptionally drinkable. I had a friend try it and he wound up taking the other can... I imagine this is not the albeit of great farmhouse ales but it surely is a give it a try type of beer.

12 oz can pours a fairly clear gold color with a small white head. Not much for retention and lace.
Nose is honey, coriander, chamomile and graham crackers. Nowhere do I get any farmhouse aromas.
Calling this a farmhouse ale is like calling Miller Light a pilsener...no way, no how. Spiced saisons in general are one of my beer pet peeves - this one tastes like an American Wheat Ale with honey, syrup and coriander added in. Its not an atrocious beer, but it is far from advertised and I am pissed I spent 10 bucks on a sixer of this thinking I was going to get a saison. Mouthfeel is too heavy and sweet for a saison - there is nothing crisp, or wheat-like about it. If it was called a Blonde Ale with spices, it would fare much better.

A: I'm drinking this out of a can, but going off of the last time I had this (on tap): Golden-yellow with a slight head; foggy, wheat-y body.
S: Yeast, lemon, wheat, grass.
T: So refreshing for the style... Yeast, wheat, straw, lots of lemon juice, fresh grass, ripe apple, citrus notes, pepper, zest, and some seedy bread.
M: Lighter side of medium with some descent carb.
O: I love this beer as a go-to, because it's so refreshing and zesty. The strong straw/wheat character really shows through and makes the beer come to life.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a teku.
A: Hazy dark golden hue. Pours a 1 finger, bubbly white head. Settles pretty quickly. No real lacing.
S: Yeast, orange, nectarine, and raspberry.
T: Very yeasty sourdough, with a bit of orange peel.
M: Light, crisp and refreshing. Lightly bitter finish. Well-balanced.
D: Sessionable, but worth savoring the funk.
Atmosphere is nice. Nearly opaque golden body, bubbly head, no lacing. Nose is yeasty with a collection of fruity components. Light, a little bitter, but very well-balanced. Overall, this is a really good quaff.
