16oz can poured into a Modern Times willibecher.

The beer pours a hazy, cloudy straw color, a few bubbles rising to the top of the glass where a nice, thick, foamy white head sits, about 2 fingers high that has nice retention and yields plenty of large spotted lace. The aroma is nice, definitely bright, lemon citrus, fruity yeast, pale grain, light berry fruit, banana, mild funk but definitely clean, reminds me of a hefeweizen more than a saison. The flavors mirror the nose, lemony tang, clove, banana, touches of sweet berry, light pale grain, minimal funk, again super clean and polished, hardly what I'd consider rustic, but refreshing and bright, definitely crushable. The mouthfeel is okay, creamy and a bit soapy, coats moderately well, low carbonation and a thicker chewier complexion that finishes softly and gently.


Verdict: Bright, yes, rustic, no, saison, debatable as I found myself often times thinking of the hefeweizen style, but the funkiness helped this along. Light, refreshing and quaffable, easy to see this being a summer favorite.

16oz can. No date, but likely within 1 month of age. Poured into a stemmed glass 2/15/2015.

A- Slightly hazy golden-yellow body. One finger white head, very nice retention. Beautiful lacing. Looks so refreshing and crisp.

S- Minerals, banana, cloves, wheat, even a bit of bubble gum. Crackers. Smells solid, almost like a bready hefeweizen.

F- Flavourful crackers, grains, wheat, banana, spices, minerals, earth. Clean, flavourful, if not spectacular.

M- Thinner bodied, about right for a light farmhouse ale such as this. Good carbonation gives this a nice feel; and the earthy bitterness mixes in with a bit of sweet cracker flavour at the end.

O- Pretty solid farmhouse ale. It's nicely executed as far as Belgian-style farmhouse ales go, with a nice non-west coast hoppiness to go along with a nice bright, slightly funky wheat and pale malt base.
