The appearance of this saison/farmhouse ale is much like others. What stood out the most about this beer was the body and finish. The finish had just the right amount of tartness. Muy Bueno!

Batch 2. Waxed and capped 500ml bottle into Tired Hands stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Gentle pour yields a .5 finger fine white head with low retention. Beer is a clear yellow. Lacing is minimal with low stick. Average.

Nose is yeasty with hints of cove, coriander and lemon spritz. Sweet, light and refreshing. Moderately aromatic. Solid.

Opens yeast, peppercorn and clove. Light lemon tartness in the middle with coriander and other floral notes. Funk at the end with some spiciness and lemon at the finish. Aftertaste of yeast and a slight hop bitterness. Pretty enjoyable.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and goes down spritzy and sparkling. Goes down foamy with a clean finish and a soft, yeasty aftertaste. Really nice.

This beer's not quite there yet but I see a lot of potential. The body is great and the flavor just needs the slightest bit more tartness which could potentially develop with time. I'll certainly revisit this one in the future.

big thanks to Nick for this

pours a hazy straw pale yellow. little to no head, a thin ring of lacing. a hint of brightness.

nose blew me away, smells like a belgian gueuze. lemon, apples, funky, oak. just brilliant.

taste is no way resembles a gueuze though. a very light saison. starts out funky and spicy with a light fruit aspect. starts to fade and thin in flavor through the finish. subtle white wine and oak on the finish.

light with some bite that builds then fades. fairly dry.

quite good but such a bigger bolder nose than the flavor. wish this had a bit more to match the nose. easy drinker, very good.

* Not consumed on this date just finally posting my review

A- A bright straw color, minimal cap of head that clears out to a few bubbles very quickly
S-Chardonnay,Pear,white pepper, lactic tartness. All very restrained
T- Pear, minimal earthiness, a bit of spice, oak, lemon tartness
M- Light bodied, almost thin, soft
O- Saison hands is a top 5 beer for me but this bottle of Handfarm was anything but spectacular. Very soft but next to no brett development. I'd love some carbonation on this beer as well. This was so lightly carbed that it was almost still. Could be bottle variance but most of the bottles I've had from them have been the same.

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy milky yellow. Nice white head with good retention.

Smell - Quite lactic acidity. Grainy malt. A little sweet. A little bit of that wine barrel, but not super strong. Oak, though.

Taste - Less tart than the nose implied. Hefty pale malt. Grainy behind the sweetness. Wine barrel blends in more than it's at the forefront.

Mouthfeel - A touch heavy. Very malty and medium carbonation.

Overall - Had this after Civil Disobedience #5, which put HandFarm on the back foot immediately. This is still very good.

Edit: Drank another batch 1 bottle in March 2014 and I don't know why I was complaining about heaviness. This is crisp and pleasantly tart. I don't get as much pale malt either. Grainy with a nice wine barrel character. Excellent. I have not changed my numbers to reflect this, though.
