i wanted a little more out of this one, and somehow thought that all the "tion" beers from these guys were wild ales. i was wrong, this one is a pretty basic saison, the kicker being that its pretty brilliantly hopped, and has a really tropical fruit finish to go with the funky wine-like saison yeast and the rustic grain character of its malt base. the beer is a real journey, plenty complex and not one dimensional as a yeast flavored beer. the grain and hops contribute equally to it. its dry in the finish too, great for the hops to take over. i just wish it was more carbonated. its gets a little heavy on the palate and in the belly, filling me up more than i want it to, and kind of staying there. that said, its pretty unique and i think its expertly made, just a beer where one is enough for me.

nice hoppy farmhouse style. not usually a saison guy but this has the hops and the lighter side of belgian yeast flavor that actually makes for a good beer. would even drink again!
