It has a really interesting color to it, really thick for a farmhouse ale. The smell was a bit off putting, almost a sour, but the taste is fantastic in combination. And there's a very fine citrus coating on the tongue afterwards, which is not unpleasant.

Pours a hay like yellow color with a small head. The smell is of coriander, strong coriander. The coriander was there on the taste, but not dominate. Mellow even. Wheat/light grain taste. Feel was fine. Nothing impressive but nothing egregious.

Overall a good beer.

Pours Pale hazy straw with hints of pink grapefruit. Small head that fades quick. Mild yet pleasant aroma of bananas and clove surrounded by strong wheatiness. Flavor has strong yeast presence with more banana and spices. Moderate carbonation that fades pretty quick. An enjoyable saison that would probably be even better with a slightly higher amount of carbonation.
