Poured from bottle

appearance - hazy, golden color; decent head lasts for a little bit
nose - citrus and spice
taste - Get the citrus more on the nose; don't really taste it much. Maybe a little light spice, but otherwise mainly get the carbonation. A nice, light crispness
mouthfeel - Light body, but lots of carbonation
drinkability - This is enjoyable, but perhaps not the best saison I've had. It has a nice nose, but lacks some flavor. The light body and carbonation, though, would be enjoyable on a warm day.

I'm guessing a farmhouse ale is a saison because this is a really good saison, crisp and refreshing with notes if lemon zest and straw. Leaves a very nice slightly tangy bittersweet coat to the pallet that becons for another sip. Very thin head with little lacing. Color is very pale yellow almost lemonade color. LSitting in my garage on a hot humid September night I'm not sure if there is a better beer to be sipping in right now.

Pours a murky light yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, earth, spice, yeast, funk, and fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly tart grain, yeast, spice, and citrus and tropical fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Serving type: bottle.

Hazy and glowing gold. Great frothy head and retention.

Lemony smell with sine clove and funk. Grassy hops.

A nice combo of funk, peppery spice and citrus flavors of lemon and orange. Lightly phenolic with some overripe banana.

Good carbonation, medium body. Clean mouthfeel.

A very good saison that's true to style. Refreshing on a hot summer day.
