Buddy brought over a stinger of Farmhouse Hatter to try....and it was quite tasty. The appearance is a cloudy copper with thin white head. The nose provides a bouquet of hops, clove and banana. The taste starts with hop and malt which is really nice, then the beer turns very tart and finishes with the clove, banana, and spice common to belgium ales. The tart finish lowers the mouthfeel for me, but overall this is a pretty good beer and worth a try.

3.73/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a hazy amber color with a massive head (all head until I poured it carefully); the flip side is that the stickage is great as is the lacing

Smell: Bready, peppery, stone fruit, phenolic and lemony

Taste: Bready, up front, with the yeast quickly adding a stone fruit/peppery dimension; citric lemony bitterness develops in the middle, though the finish adds an herbal/phenolic element

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Not a bad beer but not the best Belgian IPA but certainly enjoyable

This is my first experience with a saison or a farmhouse ale. I'm reviewing this beer but still not quite certain about the style or my affection for it. The ale pours a hazy golden copper with a very thick white head that is quite long lasting and leaves a slight white lacing behind. The aroma is sour and earthy with notes of orange bitters, grass, and herbaciousness. It sips smooth with a light to medium body. The flavor is quite tangy. Slightly sour and has a slight bite of alcohol. It is pleasing on the palate and invigorating on the brain with questions of what all is happening in this ale. I've enjoyed te differences in this ale from what I am used to but still not sure if it is a beer style that I will return to often. That being said, I can say that this is a very well crafted and enjoyable ale. Which, at the very reason price, should most certainly be picked up and tried even if the style is not completely your cup of tea.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a dark golden orange with a thick, pillowy white head that takes quite some time to settle.

S: Aromas of kumquat, tangerine, bitter orange, lemon, lime, herbs, grass, caramel, biscuit, and woody spices fill the nose.

T: Notes of caramel, biscuit, toffee, sweet cream, crackers, minerals, kumquat, bitter orange, tangerine, lemon rind, lime zest, herbs, grass, and spicy yeast are surprisingly well integrated. The finish presents a pleasant mixture of spicy yeast, biscuit, herb, grass, bitter orange, kumquat, and lemon notes.

M: Rather slight in body, this ale goes from mildly resinous to dry fairly quickly. Delightful, active carbonation tingles on the tongue. Feels very airy in the mouth. Easy to drink.

O: A nice, easy drinking ale with some complexity and a superb integration of malt, yeast, and hop flavors. Recommended.
