Mmmm! This is a really flavorful farmhouse ale. Best I've had yet, and I've tried quite a few this past summer and fall.

It's got a nice spice to it that isn't overpowering and lights up the flavor buds on my tongue. Excellent beer!

Wow, this is a good one, seems to have hints of orange peel and coriander. Great color, cloud, but substantive like you want it, nice head and goes down so smooth. One of my favorites.

Every time I have this it just gets better. A delicious Saison with absolutely no faults. Every year it's my go-to summer quencher.

My review from a year ago :

A : Pours a very pretty hazy lemon drop color, with about 80% opacity. The head doesn't stay long but it is lacy and porous while it does. Hilly lace left behind on the walls of the pint glass.

S : Fresh baked dough, perhaps even slightly overdone; yeast, fresh citrus, and spicy zing. A nose that makes my mouth water.

T : Right at the first taste there's some burnt alcohol funk and burnt biscuit but that quickly gets brushed aside by an absolutely heavenly flavor profile. Banana peel, walnut, yeast, oranges, lemon, steamed rice...it's almost like a hefeweizen but has the tartness of a saison. A dry alcohol burn finishes the profile and leaves a starchy feel on the palate.

O : This beer was great. I'll buy more once I'm down in Nebraska again.
