Draft offering at the source. Listed with no description other than saison/farmhouse beer I had to give it a try. It appears a hazed golden yellow with a white webby lacing pattern that sticks to the glass.

The aroma includes a bold amount of citrus hop inclusion. Some peppery spice and clove give off the only indication of being a saison and not some other hoppy brew. As it warms up, some lemon and fresh straw to hay-like grain quality emerges.

The flavor is herbal and bitter with hops. Mostly grassy with a flavor of hay or straw blended with a yeasty inclusion of black peppery and clove.

This is a light bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is crisp, clean and easy drinking. If I didnt know any better, id say this was an accident gone right. Almost like a blend of a plain saison with edgar ipa.

- Farmhouse ipa 7.5%. Poured from growler within 8 hrs.

A: Pours a bright orange, translucent clarity, bready, beige head was bubbly on the surface and quick to dissipate without much hold or lacing. Faint isolated rise of carbonation bubbles.

S: Fresh burst of pineapple-orange, fresh and fruity nature, wet and juicy delivery with some wet grapefruit, hints of lime and pine all coming together nicely. nails it here.

T: Flavor mirrors the aroma, fresh and fruity, pineapple-orange, mangos, lively fesh green hopping, bready with a slight muskiness. Slight dryn alcohol warmth quickly comes on the finish. Bready, dried orange peel, and pine finishes things out.

M: Average carbonation factor, dry, flowery orange fade still gets good regards. I usually like a snappy farmhouse.

O: Overall carbonation was a bit lazy, not sure if growler had any effect in this, had some fizzle when opening. Funk was there but a little laid back still very good offering. A very good combination of both ipa and farmhouse.

Pours a hazy orange-ish color with a small white head. In the aroma, orange citrus hops. In the taste, tart earthiness, and orange citrus hops. A small hop bite, with a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a lightly dry orange citrus hop in the aftertaste. Nice mellow tartness and big orange citrus hops. Quite nice!
