A: Pours a hazy dark straw yellow in color with moderate to significant amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and some faint lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a half finger tall fizzy foamy white head that quickly reduces to a medium to large patch of thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of pale and grainy malts with slightly heavier aromas of citrus/lime, citrus/lime zest, and spicy/pepper hops.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of pale malts along with a light amount of slightly sweet grainy malts. That is followed by light to moderate flavors of citrus/lime and citrus/lime zest hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which does not ling for long. There is a light amount of spicy/black pepper yeast flavors as well.

M: Just heavier than light bodied with slightly heavier than moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp.

O: Very easy to drink and very enjoyable - definitely an every day type of beer. I really enjoy the hoppy presence to a saison/farmhouse ale.

Poured a hazy orange with a slight orange head. The smell that immediately hit was a grassy, hoppy, peppery grains. The taste was very similar. Prickly spices. Earthy grains. Citrus hops. Lots of carbonation added to the peppery flavors and made my tongue tingle. One of the best examples of a true Belgian style farmhouse ale.

Reviewing from notes after enjoying on 12/16/13 out of a 12 oz brown bottle. No dating to be found for bottling or freshness. Poured into a Boulevard Smokestack Series tulip glass.

Appearance - Pours a hazy pineapple rum cake colored body with a steady gradient from sunny lemon yellow to golden brown. Atop the body sits a crown of faintly golden white, one-and-a-half fingers thick. Retains for a few minutes before shrinking to a moderate mottling of film across the surface and spotty streaks of lace around the sides of the glass.

Smell - Bright and hoppy, with elements of lemongrass and lime zest along with a nice crackery pale grain base as well as faint hints of black peppercorn. More on the citric/peppery side of the farmhouse style than it is funky/musty. I love the pungency provided by the extra hopping.

Taste - From the aroma, the less astringent lime characteristic and a nice hay-like presence stand out, but they are both complimented by herbal and grassy hops and some pleasant bitterness to break up the slightly sweet bready element from the grains. Peppercorn is again present, but it's fainter and gentler than on the nose, and only in the finish, lending a hint of spice on the tongue. In spite of the faint sweetness of the grains, the finish is dry and stark, pleading for the next sip.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied and possessing moderate-to-high carbonation.Pleasantly effervescent mouthfeel with a dry finish.

Overall, just a solid, everyday drinking saison. It doesn't quite measure up to the best "hoppy" saisons in the style, but it's only barely below. I have to say that the lime-like characteristic isn't something I'm used to coming across in beer, so it definitely has unique points going in its favor. Not sure if it's release is seasonal, but I will probably pick up a 4-pack whenever I see it on shelves, which so far has been rather infrequently.
