We crack the tab and pour a brew of muddy straw brown coloring into our Founders snifters. It holds a one and a half finger tall head of fat, creamy white bubbles, showing proud retention. This leaves globular spots of lacing dripping all around the glass. A thick haze permeates clarity, and soft flecks of lacing float towards the bottom. The nose is fresh and very Belgian, with wheat, powdered pales, sweet strawberry-lemon fruitiness, biting straw, mineral, and strong banana esters. With warmth comes zest of citric hops, tarter and slightly soured yeastiness and funky must, tinny metallics, clovey phenols, orange rind, freshly cut green grassiness, acorns, and fusel booziness. Our first impression is that the flavoring blends well, and is very refreshing and drinkable. As we sip, the taste opens much like the nose, with forward graininess of musky wheat and dusty pales, tree bark and moss, sweet apple fruitiness, clover honey, lemon rind, lemonade sugars, resiny and grassy hops, and chalky yeasty metallics. The middle peaks with rooty, planty greenness, white sugars, bittered pale malts, baker’s yeast, citric hops, fresh ginger, clovey bite, and phenolic plastics. The end comes with biting metallics, medicinal phenols, chalk, whole clove, pale and heavily wheaty maltiness, that same Belgian yeast injection, aloe and green leaf resins, sweet banana esters, grassy hoppiness, mineral, and warmed pumpernickel toastiness. The aftertaste breathes of green grape skins, gravel, juicy Belgian yeast, cinnamon sugar, wheat breadiness, dust and musk, bittered pale toast, astringent chalkiness, sweet browned banana fruitiness, continued bitter pale malts, plastics and vinyl, and lemon balm herbals. The body is light to medium, and the carbonation is light to medium. Each sip gives soft slurp, smack, cream, froth, and pop. The mouth is heavily coated, but quickly drips to an extensive, diffuse dryness across the entire oral cavity, with chalk, astringency, and the lightest puck. The abv is appropriate, and the beer drinks excellently.

Overall, what we enjoyed most about this beer was its easy blend and straight drinkability. This is one of the more approachable saisons we’ve had to date. The whole thing is just relaxed. It comes in a can, pours an easy, calming coloring, and gives fresh, warming, and refreshingly authentic ingredients from the first whiff to the last swallow. We were, however, expecting and hoping for a bit more of a hoppy punch to balance the heavy Belgian maltiness that makes of the base of the beer, but regardless it remained highly pleasurable throughout, despite that gap. The feel is in line with how pleasant the tasting was, and only adds to its ease of drinkability, softness and palate cleansing astringency. Although this beer carries a 6.5% abv, it drinks like a lighter, sessionable ale that will keep you going through these hot summer days.

poured 11.2oz. can into a Teku

A - A light haze peach color with a nice bubbly 1.5 finger white head. No lacing.

S - Nice Belgian yeast and mild funk with spice and clove. Hints of straw, wheat, lemon rind, banana, and some bready malts.

T - Belgian yeast, spice, banana, with some straw and funk. Wheat, light citrus and bready malt round it off. The taste is outstanding.

M - Medium to light bodied with good amount of carbonation. Crisp, clean, and easy to quaff on hot days like today.

O - This is a great representation of the classic Farmhouse Ale. Seems to hit all the right notes to make it quite enjoyable.

A metric can. Gotta love it.

Super yeast on this one. Earthy sweetness. Dark citrus tones. Quite robust, for the style. Consistent though. Feel is pretty good. Carbonation could be toned down a little bit. And the beer overall could be a little bit lighter and not so heavy. Still pretty decent though.

A gift from Brett, the cellarman at the Sharp Edge in Pittsburgh, who knows how important the furtherance of The CANQuest (TM), especially with the Craft CAN revolution.

From the Slimline CAN: "Product of Belgium"; "Belgian Farmhouse Ale".

The Crack revealed another brimful CAN and I CANnot say enough good things about the trend. The Glug created a brief finger of tawny head with low retention. Color was a hazy yellowish-orange. Nose smelled deeply of peppery coriander, along with lemon zest, musty yeast, and an herbal/flowery scent, like lilac or lily. Zounds! I am so in love with the idea that they put something like this into a CAN! Mouthfeel was thin, not watery per se, but soft and caressing. Taste was riotous with so many flavors all trying to take hold on my tongue. The herbal floweriness worked in tandem with the lemon zestiness to give it a lemon tart taste that was reinforced by the black pepper spiciness and the musty yeast. I felt like I was drinking a liquid lemon poppy muffin. Finish, as you might imagine, was bone-dry. Boy, if this won't quench your thirst on a warm, humid 4th of July, I CANnot imagine what it would take.

Poured from a 11.2 oz. can into a Duvel tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About two fingers of white head which recede into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a good amount of lacing on the glass.

Smell: A very yeasty aroma with nice hints of spice, fruit, and biscuit malt. Belgian yeast with a scent of funk along with some clove and pepper spices. Fruit hints of banana, lemon zest, pineapple, and orange. Hints of herbal and grassy hops. Solid malt presence with bready hints of biscuit, grains, and wheat. Sweet hints of candied sugar and honey. Has that typical musty farmhouse scent. Pretty good aroma.

Taste: Like the nose, a yeasty and zesty mix of funk, spice, fruits, and bready malt. Belgian yeast with a taste of barnyard funk and notes of clove and pepper spicing. Fruity notes of banana, lemon, orange, and pineapple. Grassy and herbal hop notes. Sweet Belgian candied sugar along with some notes of honey. Bready malt taste with notes of biscuit, wheat, and cereal grains. A good combination of funky, sweet, fruity, and musty farmhouse notes. Very good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a fairly high amount of carbonation. Very crisp and clean. Smooth with a drying finish.

Overall: A pretty good Belgian Farmhouse/ Saison. Solid yeasty and fruity flavor with a nice malt balance and crisp smooth feel.
