Appearance: Large, somewhat coarse white head with good retention, a hazy medium brown body, moderate, fine-beaded, slow-rising carbonation, and a good amount of suspended sediment. Scattered, patchy lacing adorns the glass walls.

Aroma: Moderate pine tar hops and coriander dominate the aroma, there are sour notes and coriander, appropriate to the style.

Taste: Begins with tangy wheat and coriander notes. The yeast contributes as earthy quality as well. Early in the taste, the coriander and malt dominate, as the taste progresses, some fairly sharp citric and pine tar hops appear, these offer a pleasing balance. Phenolic alcohol is present throughout the taste. Finishes with lingering notes of coriander, phenolic alcohol and moderately aggressive citric and pine hops.

Mouth feel: Smooth and quite full, with quite soft carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: Well done! A solid example of the Farmhouse/Saison style. Would make a nice session beer.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce brown glass long neck bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a Samuel Adams Boston Lager sensory glass.

12 oz. bottle poured into tulip

L: yellow to yellow-gold, misty but you can see through it; not even a full skin for a head -- looks very, very flat; not stick because there's no head to stick. can't imagine there will be any lacing, and even the collar looks flat and sparse

S: bananas; very hefeweizen/wheat-like, sour grain;

T: follows the nose but might be a hair sweeter (nose is more tart) -- bananas, sour grain, wheat

F: brew is solid and there is some carbonation -- the brew isn't flat -- but it's leaving the feel of a film in my mouth, almost a high frutcose corn syrup-feeling kind of film. awkward.

O: the taste and smell notes are fine; the brew is definitely a saison with that tart-banana-hefeweizen thing going, almost sour but with plenty of sweetness. the appearance and mouthfeel, normally things I overlook, can't be overlooked here because they lack considerably.

still, i want to be fair here and say the brew isn't a complete miss. plenty of good sweet saison-like notes (banana, cantalope to me) with a light frutiness and a good tart bite that makes it easy to drink.

On tap at Hay Merchant in Houston.

A: Pours a cloudy/hazed golden orange color. At first a two finger white head forms, and eventually recedes to a ring. Not much lace is left behind.
S: Oh man, this is not good. The first thing I get a whiff of is sulfur and rotten eggs. A cooked veggie aroma as well. Kind of like DMS. Then an overwhelming sense of phenolic, plastic yeast. Band aid like. Wow, really nothing else here besides off aromas.
T: Follows the nose, and again mostly off flavors. Sulfur, eggs, cooked veggies. I guess that can be described as funky in not a very good way. Plastic, band aid flavors. Man, I hope not all taste like this. Just bad. This needs to go back to the drawing board.
M/D: A medium body and carbonation. Fairly thin as well. I did not even try to finish this.

I am sorry, this was not good. So many things wrong here. I hope this is isolated to this kegs. I know Hay Merchant has excellent quality, so I don't think it is on their end, and probably on the breweries end. Nothing about this was enjoyable.
