Poured into a large tulip glass a hazed lighter golden with a fluffy one and a half finger bone white head atop.alot of yeasty phenolic spice in the nose along with light funk,a light smattering of lemony citric hops as well.Quite dry one the palate with yeasty phenols and light bready malts being predominant,there is some leafy citric hop notes in a lingering finish but they don't play a huge role in the beer.Iam trying to get into farmhouse ales more but the Belgian yeast still does not do it for me,this wasn't bad but not overly complex.

In a pint glass the beer was a pale gold color. The white head retained well and left a good deal of lace.

Funky, yeasty aroma. A little spice, a little citrus.

First sip, some lemon and tartness. Then a little bit of spice. Later, the funky yeast taste took over.

A crisp, refreshing beer.

Very nicely done.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Duvel tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours a fairly hazy golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Huge four finger white head that quickly fades into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing around the glass.

Smell: A nicely spicy and funky Belgian style aroma with some fruity hints. Upfront Belgian yeast with hints of farmhouse funk and some clove, pepper, coriander, and ginger spicing. Pale malt with hints of grains, wheat, straw, cracker, and biscuit. Fruit hints of banana, apple, and white grapes along with citrus hints of orange peel, lemon zest, and pineapple. Hints of bubblegum and candied sugar as well. Subtle scent of earthy hops. Pretty good spicy aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a spicy, funky, and zesty Belgian style taste with some nice citrus notes. Belgian yeast upfront with some farmhouse funk. Spice notes of peppers, clove, coriander, and ginger. Bready pale malt with notes of grains, straw, wheat, cracker, and biscuit. Fruity taste of banana, apple, and white grapes. Citrus fruit notes of orange peel, pineapple, and lemon zest. Candied sugar notes as well as a little bubblegum. Subtle presence of hops. A pretty nice zesty taste.

Mouthfeel: Body is on the lighter side of medium. Carbonation is fairly high. Spicy, juicy, and fairly drying on the finish.

Overall: A pretty nice take on the style. Good taste of spice and citrus. A lighter version of a Saison but good tasting.
