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.

Light-handed Saison. Straw golden in color with very watery head, not much in the way of lacing. Very prominent honey and sweet clover in the nose, honey sweetness dominates the taste. A little on the watery side, but it tastes fresh and interesting enough. Would make a nice spring after-dinner beer.

The color is a bright orange bright with a fluffy white head.

The aroma has some funk. It is also lightly malty and grassy.

The flavor is bright and fruity. It is very grassy on the hop profile. There’s bit of funk and a light bitter finish. There’s also some pepper and spice in there.

The mouthfeel has tons of carbonation to give it some nice mouthfeel. The beer is really drinkable.

As for saisons, this does not really really do it like DuPont, the classic. It however is still a wonderful beer that mixes saison and Belgian pale style. A nice summer beer.

250ml bottle purchased from Red Bottle Alexandria in Sydney.

Pours a pleasant burnished golden colour, with some flecks of disturbed sediment. Head is a moderate, fine white, which sits as a solid ring and bubbly film atop the glass. Carbonation is lively, forming in rapid streams through the glass. Looks good.

Nose is extremely pleasant: dusty and earthy, with a rugged wholesomeness. This is contrasted with a pleasant lemon and pepper spice character which provides life to the earthiness. Some floral notes come through as well, and the piquant spicy characters take on a crushed herbal aroma as it goes on. Overall, it's a really lovely aroma.

Taste is also very good. It has a solid basis of malt, with a creamy honey tone underneath. This is bolstered by a savoury, earthy flavour from the yeast, which morphs into a respectable drying, vegetative character towards the back. Everything is extremely smooth, though: the characters transition seamlessly into one another, and the back fades with a supple, haunting delicacy into the finish. This is a really excellent Saison.

Feel is gorgeous, smooth but light, supporting those silky transitions from flavour to flavour.

Wow. This is fantastic stuff. Smooth, clean, drinkable, approachable, but with loads of flavour. The craft is deeply apparent here: there's no harshness, no imbalance, no awkward flavours to detract from the whole. This is just plain good stuff.

Served from a 11.2oz can into a Hill Farmstead stemed tulip. Fridge temps.

Appearance- Hazy orange with quick half-finger head that left some nice lacing behind.

Smell- Musty yeast, peppery lemon rind, light earthy hops, wheat malts. Nice "standard" farmhouse aromas.

Taste- Muted, musty hops. Lemon and floral flavors intermingle. Some musty, mildly peppery yeast notes. Very clean. No tartness at all.

Mouthfeel- Quick heavily carbonated bubbles and a nice light body. No heavyness or viscosity. Crisp and clean.

Overall- Nice, clean, refreshing saison. Probably the best saison to come in a can.
