Pours a deep golden yellow with aromas of wheat and a subtle blend of earthy spice.

Taste begins with a subtle, yet complex mix of spicy, earthy tones...definitely picking up the chamomile/lemon zest. The pink peppercorn lends a beautiful "peppery" bite that carries through the finish and is well balanced and complemented by a touch of honey in the background. The wheat comes in about halfway through and lingers with the zesty peppercorn well after the finish.

This is really quite phenomenal. I haven't had a beer that combines these different aspects and my reaction after trying it for the first time was "wow!".

Overall, a beautifully blended beer that is unique and interesting and being a local brew, I can't help but love it even more.

Blows Ommegang's saison out of the water (Sorry Ommegang!! I love you though!!)

Poured from a can into a shaker pint.

A- Ruddy brown with hints of red, very cloudy.

S-Apple cider, allspice, wet wood.

T-Straight apple juice, finished with cinnamon stick.

M- Thin, lightly carbonated.

O- In a blind tasting this is identical to most ciders. Motts Apple juice which finishes and leaves you with cinnamon and allspice. Nothing even close to "farmhouse" in this beer. Maybe they brewed this in a farmhouse, because it tastes like it came from an orchard. Very misleading label, unsatisfactory product, would not buy again and would discourage other from trying. Not worth the money.

Can > Pint Glass

A - Clear gold half a finger of fizzy white head, no lacing.
S - No real strong aroma, light pepper, banana, melon, cantaloup.
T - Light papaya, honeydew, banana, very light spice, sweet malt, wheat.
M - Light clean, sessionable.
O - Decent for a session ale, not particularly the most accurate farmhouse, much more close to a blonde.
