This is a cloudy straw-colored beer with a frothy, airy head that fades fairly quickly. The nose offers spicy phenolic notes on top of a lightly grainy maltiness. Flavor is pretty good: lots of phenols with spicy, clove-like notes, light fruitiness, a good bitterness that really dries out the beer a lot, and malt that is a small component, but never quite disappears in the background. Well-carbonated, as every good saison should be. Quite a decent beer, and one I predict I'll buy again.
On edit: the second can of the 4-pack was a GUSHER. I now have beer all over my shirt and pants. Is this can-conditioned? In any case they seem to have a few quality control problems still.
Serving type: can

Enjoyed on the patio at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth on a lazy hot summer Sunday afternoon while waiting between trains.
Glorious looking in the glass. Almost opague, yellow-orange-tan-grapefruit juicecolored liquid. A little bit of a white head.
Interesting spicy aroma.
Flavor is a mouthful but a little out of left field. I can pick up some different grains (maybe wheat?), funky hops, spices (especially black and white pepper strangely enough) and some really interesting funky yeast.
Yes, I used the word funky two times in this review.
It's an odd combination. It is frankly pretty far on the funky side of farmhouse ales but I like it.
Very full, almost chewy mouthfeel with a little bit of acidic prickle on the tongue.
Drink this beer if you dare.
Serving type: on-tap
