3.75/5 rDev -3.8%
On tap at Track 84 Warwick
Comes to the table a slightly hazy light golden color and a smallish off white head. Aromas of light funk, bread, bits of lemon, clove, and pepper. The flavor follows the aroma well. Light refreshing easy to drink, I enjoyed this a bit.

A: copper with a long lasting head
S: fresh, subdued natural scents
T: balanced; not sweet in any lasting sense with hints of apple and grapefruit coming through occasionally.
M: the floral notes and a restrained wheaty background don't linger around longer than they need to; sometimes reviving on the tongue for a moment, but generally making an exit before the next sip.
O: a real pleasant beer to enjoy in the waning summer months, look forward to picking some up next season.

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.

4.11/5 rDev +5.4%
Appearance: Pours a cloudy amber color with a rocky head that leaves a few strands behind as it descends
Smell: Bready malt with a slightly toasty character; complex grains (porridge-like); a hint of fruit (apple, lemon and banana); white pepper and just a touch of farmhouse funk
Taste: Tart fruit flavors arrive first, with lemon, banana and apple cider tones; by mid-palate, the complex malt bill adds a range of cereal flavors; grassy hops arrive with the swallow; and the bitter and slightly tart flavors bring up the rear, though there is an unmistakable floral aspect to the finish
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: A very interesting beer with a lot of complexity in the flavor profile; nice to see the brewery go out on a limb, here

Big thanks to beersndrums for this one! Another new brewery that I’ve tried because of this guy!
22 oz bottle poured into a globe at cellar temperature.
L – Pale gold color with a huge 5-finger creamy, frothy, white head that lasts forever. There’s some nice lacing going on here, too. Slightly hazy with a lot of carbonation bubbles.
S – Grainy, bready malt, citrus and banana esters, some grassy hops, and peppery and somewhat funky Belgian-style yeast. Really nice.
T – Starts off mildly sweet with bready malt and citrus and banana esters. Grassy and earthy hops come in next, followed by peppery and musty Belgian yeast at the finish. Tasty.
F – Light-medium-bodied, good carbonation, a creamy but crisp mouthfeel, and an earthy, musty, and dry finish.
O – This is a really nice saison. It fits the style to a tee and is very tasty. It’s very drinkable, and the 7.8% ABV is nowhere to be found. Thanks for the beer, Jared!

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.

La Ferme Urbaine opens to a nice sweet, musty farmhouse ale aroma, smelling like fermented apple cider, hay, pepper, and a Belgian banana-and-clove mix, with lesser notes of white grape, lemon, and pink grapefruit. An earthy base of brown bread, toast crust, biscuit, and yeasty rising whole wheat dough brings balance. Touches of orange and berry fruit esters, as well as brown sugar and hints of vanilla, add further sweetness and nuance. As a whole, the nose is nicely balanced and strong, the sugars being especially aromatic, lacking mainly in a sense of distinction from its rivals, the aromas fairly standard for the style.
On the tongue, the beer is part Belgian, with bananas and cloves immediately noticeable, and part spiced and fermented apple cider, with small touches of sour vinegar. The pepperiness of the brew is instantly notable, burning the tongue and soft palate. Also noticeable are the citrusy fruits, with oranges, lemons, and tart pink grapefruit biting away. Cracker, toast, and whole wheat dough add a nice base. In subsequent sips some of the initial nuance is lost, and a vague hop-and-wheat taste overtakes much of the flavor palate. The latter portion of the mouthful becomes quite sour and vinegary in comparison to the earlier portion, and this sourness dominates the aftertaste, lingering on the tongue for a long time. Mouthfeel is medium-light to medium, and carbonation is medium to medium-high, fizzing up on the tongue.
Overall, this is a decent farmhouse ale, but lacks a sense of distinction, and the extra sour/vinegary aftertaste is slightly unsettling.
