Blond with a slight haze, topped by a two finger head that leaves clinging lace. Rustic, grainy nose with a whiff of farmhouse funk. Bit of pineapple and apple from the yeast, but this is largely a grain-driven saison. Palate is big on the grain flavors as well, which are really nice. Touch of granny smith, some grassiness. Very dry, with firm but clean bitterness in the finish. Very enjoyable.

Maybe it's the suggestion of the description-- "rustic multi-grain Saison"-- but this does have a light grainy flavor that's different from many other in the style. Is that a whiff of rye? Touches of wheat and oatmeal.

The brew is a golden yellow color with a decent foam in the Brewery Vivant tulip. Nice coating in the glass and plenty of spritz on the tongue. LIght body. The yeasty drying flavor is distinct. Less fruit than many other Saisons.

Overall this is a dry and austere sort of brew but it's light and totally drinkable. From the 500 ml bottle purchased at Best Damn Beer Store in San Diego.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy orange-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, pepper, citrus zest, earth, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, citrus zest, pepper, and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that definitely has an emphasis on various grains coming through in the aroma and flavor as the label claims.

Serving type: bottle.

This beer is amazing. I had this poured from a bottle into a nice glass and the multi-grain that it says on the label you can taste. The rye maybe is the most noticeable, there is a little bit of spice to the beer but its very subtle. Subtle is the name of this beer its very smooth nothing tugs you in one direction of the other. The beer just strait up taste good very light and very refreshing. I actually need to get another bottle so i can drink it slower and really think about what i am drinking. Hash tag liquid crack.
