Served from a bomber into a perfect pint glass. 12/17

Pours hazy cloudy mustard yellow. Thick white foam with loads of lacing. Funky yeasty nose, some citrus. Tasty fruity complex malt with a sour lemon close. Quite yeasty and chewy. Spicy/peppery too. Quite good.

Served from tap in a tumbler at Firkin.

My first Only Child beer. Finally. It pours a lightly hazy goldenrod topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises mild lemon zest, Belgian yeast, grassy hay, light cobweb, light orange zest, and a touch of cardamom. The taste brings in more of the same, the farmhouse character really coming through in a strong way, particularly manifesting itself in the form of cobweb, hay, grass, and yeast. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a nice saison, heavy on the farmhouse. I look forward to trying more from these folks.

S - Lots of yeasty bread aroma, slight lemon citrus cutting it. Maybe a touch of spice. Like.
M - Very nice, velvety smooth. Pleasantly lighter bodied (but not light).
A - Murky pale orange-yellow color. Finely bubbled head quickly disappears.
T - No real spices evident in flavor. Getting maybe a touch in the aroma. this beer is really letting the yeast and hops dominate the flavor. works pretty well.
O - Very drinkable but just misses for misses for me. Great beer for sitting outdoors on a hot day.

Really good looking farmhouse ale in the glass with a slightly orange/blonde body with a bit of cloudiness and a pillowy white head. HUGE yeast scent on the nose. Just smells like a yeast bomb with definite funky farmhouse notes to that yeast. It's a bit over the top for me. It is very estery on the tongue. The yeast creates too much banana and clove for me. There is some pepper which helps the mouthfeel and rounds slightly. I'll say that if you're a huge belgian yeast fan, then this would be a big hit for you. It's pretty well made, but it's just a big over the top for me.
