Enjoyed on tap at Barley's Brewhaus out of a Dupont stange glass.

Appearance - A spongy one-finger head of orangish-white rests atop a body of apricot and amber. It's murky and impossible to see through, in spite of the thin cylinder of a glass. Solid retention and excellent lacing, leaving rings down the side of the glass marking the level of the liquid between each drink.

Smell - Belgian yeast, some faint funk, but overall a clean aroma with some elements of pepper and spice.

Taste - Amazingly balanced with notes of hop bitterness, more Belgian yeast giving way to phenolic characteristics, elements of citrus and herbal sweetness.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied and moderate carbonation with some resinous characteristics that leave a lingering pleasantness in the aftertaste. Entices you to take the next drink.

Overall, it's easy to see why this is one of the standard-bearers for the farmhouse style. I prefer my saisons to be a little more in-your-face, with some more funk and dankess. But this one is clearly versatile for multiple seasons and cuisines.

Poured a hay like pale golden hue that is hazed out with a huge rocky snow white head that last all the way down glass leaving blankets of lacing as consumed.

Wonderful faint funk with a peppery hint that finishes with a candy sweet nose.

Easily approachable funk with peppery notes a yeasty subtle flavor that brings some pineapple like candy that goes down like honey dew vine water.

Quenching dry easy to drink brew well worth finding a good example.

Cork was dated 2/13 with NO skunky oxidized hop flavors or aromas. LOVED it!

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - golden hue, lightly hazy, with a nice amount of fluffy white head.

S - on the nose I get citrus, and a little farmhouse funk.

T - citrus, hay, a little grass, and funk with citrus.

M - smooth, yet there is enough substance to it to make it a little chewy.

O - one of the better saisons I've had. I highly recommend trying this if you have not already.

750ml green bottle was skunked. While most will hang this on the retailer, Specs in this case, there's absolutely no excuse for brewers to use green glass!!

Naturally, the appearance wasn't affected by the light exposure, but everything else was. Upon first opening, I could tell the beer was bad. There are hints that there was something good in there at one point, but not any more. I finished a half pint and dumped the rest.

Never again!!
