4.09/5 rDev +3.3%
poured 12oz bottle into Duvel tulip
A - Hazy dark gold with a 1.5 finger of white head. Good retention, thick collar and some lacing.
S - The aromas are spicy with Rye. Some grains, Belgian yeast, and light malts. Mild earthy hops.
T - Flavors of rye grain and black pepper lead off. This is followed by herbal grassy notes that seem to be from spices or yeast. The mid-palate is buttery and slightly sweet. Light earthy hops notes to cut the sweetness. Nice flavors in this beer.
M - Medium body with silky smooth carbonation. Low alcohol presence. Clean, crisp, dry and spicy.
O - I have had many Farmhouse ales, but this is my first brewed with rye. I will buy more since I really enjoyed it.

3.74/5 rDev -5.6%
Pours hazed golden. A creamy head leaves nice lacing.
The smell is of lemon meringue, grass, only vague rye.
The taste is of lemongrass with sweet and sour notes - bready background. Rye is mild but gives a minty touch in the aftertaste. It has a mild bitter/sour touch in the soft finish.
It is creamy/silky.
Nicely done! Fits into the "style" well enough while having a unique, subtle, rye touch. I was between scores on the "overall", but will give it the higher of the two. This is a definite "thumbs-up"!

4.35/5 rDev +9.8%
Appearance: Vibrant active head of about a finger and a half of head which continued to regenerate itself. The color is a darker orange/brown with a very murky body. Highly above average active carbonation.
Smell: Doughy, buttery rounded yeast on the front. Fresh cut straw and prairie grass crispness on the body. Medium bodied spices with rustic earthy fruits which I attribute to the rye keep on adding layers to this brew. The back end is open and all the wonderful aromas come together.
Taste: Rounded buttery yeast hits so evenly and cleanly on the front. Herbal and vegetal tones pop up after the front which compliment the grassy hop tones. Bananas, dark fruits, and continuing soft bready yeast pulls it all together. Easy delicious finish keeps you pulling on it.
Mouthfeel: So insanely drinkable, especially for the style. The rye is integrated well. Carbonation is bright and potent yet rolls on the palate so easily.
Overall: Well Door County is two for two with me. Both of their saisons I've had so far have been truly delightful and no doubt world class. Looking forward to trying the rest of their line and hoping for more craftsmanship like this.

3.81/5 rDev -3.8%
A- One inch off-white colored head on a light orange body. Sticky, clumpy lacing. Fairly good head retention, a cap throughout.
S- Notes of dry, tart, banana esters in the nose. the smell has me excited to try.
T- More with the esters that the style is known for. Not unlike a witbier in that regard. I wouldn't guess rye was used but because I know it is I can get a very subtle spiciness on the back end of each sip. Would put at 6%abv if I had to guess.
M- Medium mouthfeel. Pricky, small-bubble carbonation bites at the tongue.
D/O- While perhaps not standout, Door County's Biere de Seigle is solid enough to quench any saison fan's thirst while also being approachable enough for someone trying the style for the first time. My hats off to them.

3.7/5 rDev -6.6%
Appearance - Poured into a snifter, the beer was a dark golden color with a bubbly white head. Lacing was left on the sides of the glass.
Smell - The aroma was noted as being sweet lemon and the traditional farmhouse funk. It is not as potent as most saisons.
Taste - Mind lemon taste the initial taste, growing progressively more bitter. The grittiness of the style does not come through initially, more strengthens. Notes of chai tea, biscuits, and resin are present. The aftertaste yields more bitterness. This one will make you pucker.
Mouthfeel - The beer just does not stick in the mouth as the style should. It runs a little thin with the carbonation being slightly aggressive.
Overall - This is a solid impression of the style, but it feels as though something is lacking.
