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.

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.
