Admittedly I'm not a big fan of the saison style, but this one is particularly bad in my opinion. Tart, sour finish that leaves a lingering sour aftertaste. I have stopped buying Blue Moon variety packs because this one is in there. Shame.

Too sweet for my liking. Didn't get much of the traditional saison-y spice.

Expected golden color, but could have a nicer head. It had a mild smell of slight sour fruit with a minor hop finish. Smooth on the front with decent hop and sour fruit taste on the end. There was a slightly bitter after-taste after each drink. It was unusually easy to drink for a farmhouse thanks to the red wheat and fruit finish. It is a bit watery and tame for a farmhouse.
Admittedly, I wasn't feeling good about this one due to the brand. I'm probably in the minority on this beer, but I liked it. It is more red ale than farmhouse to me, but that might explain why I like it.
