L-Beautiful golden orange with creamy head.
S-awesome buttery citrus fruit.
T- hoppier than expected for a farmhouse. Great buttery spice bite midway, and citrus hop finish. Not sure if the hop adds or detracts from overall. It definitely makes a unique taste. As I continue, The hop blends more into overall, but still iffy on rating.
F- lots of things happening and it just doesn't blend together.

A- Very golden, copper-esque color. Has a frothy 3 finger head in my tulip glass. The head died to a rim around the tulip, but comes back with minimal effort upon swirl. Lots of small sediment comes here with the bottle conditioning. Good looking alcohol legs and lacing.

S- EPIC!!!!!!! Very barnyard and funky in the yeast. Nice sour note like a good sasion should have. Tart like apples with a nice refreshing lemon note. Pretty grassy and fruity in the hops, but not overpowering at all.

T- NICE!!!!! Same as the smell. I'd say the Belgian beer yeast kind of funk and sour is what I get first. There is a good black pepper spice in this one. Lemony flavors are here as well. I get a nice tartness before it dries.

M- Medium for sure. Extremely crisp and refreshing. True to style, I can't say this beer is clean tasting. But that's not a knock on this beer at all. There is a bit of hop oily quality. But again, it's not hop forward.

Overall this beer has it going on! It's the best saison I've had to date! GO GET IT NOW!
