Pale, hazy yellow color with a fluffy white head that nearly overran my glass. Aroma is both fruity and earthy. Very crisp on the tongue. Almost to the point of being sharp. Honey, ginger, orange, coriander, with earthy malt and hops. Finishes on the dry side. Just a little bit of funk from yeast at the end. That last sip was almost like an apple wine.

Amazing flavor, complexity, and balance. Wonderful

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Translucent golden straw-colored. The beer itself is bright. Masive frothy head but it doesn't stick around for long. Just a thin bubbly rim and some patchy head in the middle. Lots of little bubbles. Looks very inviting

Smells grainy. There is a lot of coriander and/or orange zest in here. The grains of paradise aroma is evident - anyone who has had a sam adams will recognize it. There is a funky Belgian yeast smell too characteristic of the style but not as much as I would have expected

The taste is very funky. Earthy grainy tones form the backbone of this one. There is some sweet ginger and orange. I taste some hay and grass. Not so much spicy as zesty. Citrusy. Lingering yeasty aftertaste is slightly weizen-like (banana and clove)

Feels crisp and biting. I feel like the carbonation makes the tongue tingle more than the spiciness but either way this is a lively brew.

Overall a great saison. Rustic yet elegant. Crisp and refreshing. Lots of flavor. A great package and well worth the price

PKG ON 04/19/13
BEST BY 04/20/2015

A: Clear, golden-yellow with a massive, foamy, bright white head. One of the most aggressive heads I've ever witnessed.

S: This one is all yeast, barn, and funk.

T: Same as the nose. Lots of flavor but it's limited to funk and some farmhouse qualities.

M: Smooth and delicious but surprisingly boozy.

O: Great beer and on point for a farmhouse but not as great as I expected.
