Calling this a farmhouse ale seems to be a big misnomer. There was no real farmhouse character, just a basic summer ale character. Light and easy drinking, bit of a honey note in the middle, but inoffensive at best. (215 characters)

Served in a sampler glass at Barrington Brew Fest 2013.

These guys know what stereotypically works beer-wise in the summer: a saison brewed with local honey. This stuff pours a clear golden-straw topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises mild citrus zest, light grass, and a quick glance from some biscuit. The taste brings in more of the same, with brighter citrus and a smattering of Belgian-style yeast spice. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a solid, easygoing saison. 'Nuff said. (569 characters)
