12oz can poured into a Bruery tulip.

A - Pours a touch darker than a straw golden color, moderately hazed and capped with a huge three finger head of fluffy white foam with excellent staying power. Thick soapy webs of lacing are left all down the sides of the glass.

S - Spicy, peppery up front with faint cloves. Very estery with a big melony fruit aroma, lemons, oranges...a bit of over-ripe fruit, hints of sweet pickles, grassy. A lot going on here - a veritable garden of fresh aromas.

T - Mildly tart up front that transforms to a bitter hop impression that ends in a dry biscuit-like maltiness. Pepper/spicy notes linger past the swallow leaving a noticeable feel on the tongue (I am very sensitive to peppery spices however). Lemony citrus mixes in towards the front of each sip, lightly fruity overall. Mix of a lot of stuff thrown together here too...lots of other fruity flavors that I can't place as they are a bit jumbled together.

M - Lighter body with a very intense and prickly carbonation that fills the entire mouth - very gassy beer. Spicy and fruity as expected for a farmhouse ale.

O - I like it, but don't love it. Lots of good aspects to this beer - maybe a bit too much going on for its own good though. I would have this again, but plenty of other saisons that I would pull off the shelf first given the choice...

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.

Sampling a cellar temp 22 oz bottle poured into a snifter. The beer pours a clear copper color with a large fluffy and frothy bleached white head of 3.5 cm.
The head fades to a thin edge layer fairly rapidly after the pour.
Aroma is bready yeast with some white grapes and pears mixed in with just a little spicy hop character.
FIrst sip reveals a lighter than anticipated body with very fine and tingly carbonation.
Texture is smooth and silky very easy to drink, enjoyable.
The beer gets a little cloudy towards the end of the bottle poured into my glass.
Flavor is grainy malt and some bready yeast, I also get some sweet fruit. Pears and some white grape again, as in the nose. The beer is amazingly drinkable and enjoyable.
I dont get any hint of the booze and the finish is dry and a little sweet.

Quite a nice beer that is perfect for a warmer day, I would pick up bottles of this again.

Pour is lightly hazed golden amber with a tight white head. Nose is heavy candied sugar, strong stale grain, faint spice and some lemon and golden fruit. Taste follows suit, lots of sugar, candied sugars, lemon, light grain. High carbonation, smooth body.
