On tap at the Hey Merchant in Houston, TX.

A: Pours a cloudy/hazy yellow color. A tow finger white head forms with good retention. Rings of lace are left behind.
S: A musky barnyard funk in the nose. Dusty, cellar like. I love it. Some hops in the mix. Spicy yeast that has some phenols. Bread and biscuit. Lots of layers that are great.
T: Follows the nose with a nice basement like funk. Some lemony fruits and slick hops in the background. Finishes with some bread and biscuit malts. Very nice.
M/D: A medium body and carbonation. Fairly crisp and refreshing. Very easy to drink. One I can quaff all day, every day.

An excellent traditional Saison. Very enjoyable and spot on for a traditional version of the style. Something I would highly recommend.

I liked it!

A: Single fingered foamy white head forms atop this murky yellow bodied brew and displayed good retention, but left behind no lacing.

S: Cloves, light spice, some barnyard funkiness, and floral notes.

T: Follows the smell exactly. Would have liked more funkiness, but he flavors present were well balanced leaving the brew very drinkable.

M: Light bodied, highly carbonated, everything you would expect to find i the variety.

O: I'd grab it again!

Intense orange color, very thin perlage. Beautiful hat of foam, white, creamy. Good appearance.
In the smell malt, white flowers, some yeast: notes of sugar, bread. Few spicy notes.
Malty in the mouth, some white flowers, citrus fruitiness and again yeast. Maybe just a bit too yeasty.
Malty aftertaste, some hop bitterness, again citrus fruit and white flowers.

Big bright white head. The body is a hazy gold.

It smells of orange and straw.

I get a grassiness and a honey sweetness. Those good flavors don't hold up long due to a bitter and slight metallic flavor going on in the background that just throws this whole flavor train off the tracks.

It has a light body, medium carbonation, with a watery mouthfeel, and overall refreshing.

Light hazy golden. Hint of orange. Full white fluffy head. Good retention. A touch of sandy brown where the sediment has filtered through.

Zesty aroma. Very appealing. Lemon, lime, a bit citrus (could be yeast or hops). Slightly spicy/peppery without being too sharp.

Taste starts out milder than the aroma suggests. Some spice and yeast. Clean dry finish. A bit hollow sort of. Underwhelming after the high of the nose. May be intentional to make it easier to drink. If that is the case, it works ( though that doesn't explain the 250ml bottle).

Doesn't pour with much fanfair. Pours with very little head, just a collar really. Good carbonation and a cloudy golden orange body.
Aroma is tart and pungent. Some pale and pilsner malts, some lemon fruit and hops. Peppery.
Taste is quite tart. Plenty of malts and yeast upfront with a sweetness too. Hops are bitter but soft also. Spicy and peppercorns.
Feels thinner on the palette.
I think it drinks nicely could also be a desent Beligum IPA.

Grabbed this beer tonight at Downtown Wine and Spirits in Somerville. The cork on this beer shot right out as soon as I started loosening the cage, but luckily there was no gushing, and the cork didn't break anything! Color is a clear gold, with an active head that starts off large and frothy, and eventually dies down to a small lacing. Lots of carbonation can be seen in this one as well. Fresh grains, tropical fruit such as mango and pineapple come to mind in the smell, as well as some pepper and a slight medicinal funk. More of the same come through in the flavor, with quite a bit of carbonation. I wouldn't go so far as to say it is over carbonated, but dialing it back might be a good thing. I was also surprised that the ABV on this one is as low as it is. I fully was expecting it to weigh in at the eight or nine percent alcohol region. Overall this is a really well made Saison. Looking forward to trying their collaborative beer with Green Flash next.

Type: Saison / Farmhouse Ale
Color: Very light in color. Nice golden sight.
Body: highly carbonated. Very light body overall. Lots of suds.
Head: Super thick. The pure white head was very thick and lasted a long time. Although it tasted amazing!
Taste: Very sweet and fruity. You can even taste honey. At the very end can you taste the bitterness in the hops. Creamy texture overall.
Aroma: Very dry. You can smell it's sweetness.

Overall this beer was something nice and easy. I easily finished the bottle and didn't have to sip it. This is definitely a great Sunday funday beer. For you Mainers out there, you can obtain this beauty from RSVP.

Corked and caged bottle.

Chill hazed amber colored beer with a tall white colored head. Very strong head formation on this beer and it lasts.

Smell is mildly sweet and slightly musty with a field of flowers scent. Some spice and apple in the scent. In this case the head is so thick I think it is capping the aromas from coming off the beer.

Starts out lightly sweet with a definite apple flavor. Little bit of coriander and a decent amount of bitterness. Slightly woody in flavor but not strongly so. In summary, this is tasty.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall this is a tasty beer. $13 for the bottle so this won't be kicking Hennepin out of the house but I will be drinking this again sometime.
