Pours an amberish yellow in the Orval chalice. Clear with no sediment in the bottle. Some foam the first pour but not much afterwards. I wished for more of that sudsy Farmhouse mouthfeel. Faint aroma.

I didn't taste anything that brought "Saison" to mind, but eventually the drying yeasty sensation takes over. Quite subdued flavor, though there is a little taste of something herbal. Makes me think of violets. Maybe the slightest whiff of St. Germaine liqueur.

This is pleasant enough, though not much of an example of the Farmhouse style. I wish they would experiment with a lower ABV with more Saison flavor. This is more alcohol and less flavor. From the 22 oz bottle bought at the brewery in the old Hood in northwest Denver.
