From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with a bottling date of 08/14/13. Sampled on September 26, 2013.

The pour is pale yellow with a white short-lived head and a definite haze. Acceptable lacing.

The aroma is a little musty but still emboldened with the yeasty, biscuity, and spicy esters one comes to expect from a Belgian style farmhouse. Some pepper perhaps. Mild hop note.

The body is thinner than I might have expected.

The taste has a pale malt character with some pepper, coriander, and a moderately sour finish that tends to linger.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 3/4/2013. Pours lightly cloudy golden straw color with a 2-3 finger foamy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, orange peel, coriander, ginger, clove, pepper, cracker, wheat, grass, floral, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Nice aromas with good complexity and balance of spice and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, orange peel, coriander, clove, pepper, wheat, cracker, grass, floral, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of citrus, light fruits, coriander, clove, pepper, wheat, cracker, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance and complexity of yeast and spice flavors; with light malt presence and no cloying flavors after the finish. High carbonation and light bodied; with a very crisp, smooth, and prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected for being under 5%. Overall this is a nice session saison style. Good balance and complexity of yeast and spice flavors; and extremely smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Pours hazy yellow with a good head that does not last. The skim creates some sticky lace.

Some nice yeasty funk in the nose, some spice and grain, a touch of fruit.

Nice yeast and grain husk up front, some spice notes and a mild tart bite. The beer turns moderately bitter, with a dry grassiness that works well with the malt. Bitter and yeasty in the finish.

Lighter bodied with a good carbonated fizz.

Decent brew here. Needs some more complexity, but solid in all ways overall.
