3.4/5  rDev -12.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 22oz. bottle into a tulip glass.

The color is a yellow/gold with two and a half fingers of foamy white head with a soft lacing left on the glass. There seems to be lots of bubbles in this beer.

The smell is boozy like an American lager with some slight hints of banana and figs in the nose.

The taste is light with a sugary dough flavor that is a pick to take in a first. The sweetness sits for a bit on the tongue for a bit making this a slow sipper. There are some interesting dry fruit flavors that appears after each sip. There is a touch of cherry and hints of melon.

The feel is a light bodied smooth drinking beer with some interesting character that keeps me involved. The flavor is better then expected and is very pleasing even after the beer is gone.

3.6/5  rDev -7.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Hazy yellow in color. Forms a moderate sized fizzy white head that quickly reduces to a thin surface coating and then nothing at all. No lacing.

S: Aroma is pleasant. A blend of yeasty esters, spice, apple juice, and fruits.

T: Taste is disjointed. The pale malt backbone is fairly light. Some light fruity notes: apple and pear. There are strong yeasty spices, prickly spices, coriander, that seem out of place.

M: Lighter bodied. Moderate carbonation. Prickly in the mouth. A slight burning/numbing sensation on the backend that I don't attribute to alcohol.

O: This beer almost seems to be more of a Belgian Pale then what I would normally associate as a Farmhouse. It's a decent beer, but there are far better out there.

3.71/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a clean looking golden color, small to medium sized fizzy head off a vigorous pour, fades quickly and leaves no lacing on the glass.

Smell is dominantly sweet malt in aroma, not much funk or spiciness that's hitting the nose for a farmhouse, pretty straightforward except for a decent sized yeasty whiff.

Taste starts out with a fairly sweet malt start, touches of light fruit like lemon and even some orange zest, yeasty aftertaste, finishes semi-dry with a a slight lingering tartness, carbonation is high but appropriate.

3.74/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Very cloudy dark straw color. Reasonable head but it dies very quickly. Some slippery lace; no permanent lace.

The aroma is peppery but not as if this is hoppy. Light alcohol to the nose.

Sour and spicy like a good Saison. Full bodied with a muted level of carbonation. The swallow is sharp with cutting an almost oregano flavor. The aftertaste is long enough to linger. A bit of orange rind in the finish.
