Bottle thanks to johnyb, served in a HF stem.

Pour: Completely hazy, almost milky yellow orange. Almost radiant. Billowing 3+ fingers of white head. Head leaves some really thick matted lacing, and hangs around for the majority of the glass.

Smell: Lots of citrus and lemon zest up front, followed by lots of bready, spicy yeast. Some pepper and a distinct earthiness.

Taste: Starts with lots of sweet bready yeast. Some coriander and white pepper. A really nice lemon zest, and some orange peel. A really nice sweet bread, a maybe even a light honey. Finishes with some lemon zest and yeast.

Mouthfeel: Not overcarbed as the massive head might lead you to believe. Really smooth and almost velvety. Refreshing.

Overall: A really nice saison. Pretty standard, but executed very well.

750ml received in trade from CJS. As others have said, be aware uncaging it, you won't have to pull the cork.
Bright gold layers a bit to orange at the top. Giant rocky white head eventually subsides. Sticks nicely.

Aroma, heavy yeast and earthy Italian spice. Hay. Some faint citrus zest. Light barnyard.

Taste, whew is that yeasty. A nice funk, some clove and earthier sage. Citrus has a nice but fast punch. Some hay and light grainy malt. Clove light italian spice seems to linger more than the rest.

To the slightly higher side of the light end body wise. Standard level of carbonation. Drinks well, refreshing.
Smells a little better than the taste. Would have again depending in the price.

As soon as I unscrewed the cage the cork flew out of the bottle, not much of a gush though. Very light body, a little cloudy, nice big head.

Smells of light fruity brett, bananas and apples and hay and pepper, graininess.

Taste is similar, nice fruity brett but with a little odd cardboard and grass. Good overall.

Mouthfeel is very very bubbly but almost too bubbly and not a fine enough carb. Decent.

750ml bottle poured into a short, hotel water glass.
Appearance: Dirty straw, very cloudy, incredibly thick head that may outlast the apocalypse.
Smell: Brett is immediately detectable. Cloves, cider, earth, and sage. I love it.
Taste: Super dry. The sage comes at me first. That, along with the brett, gives me a very “outdoorsy” sensation. Like a picnic on a farm. Also a little bit of fresh lemonade and some freshly cut grass.
Mouthfeel: Light body and super-high carbonation. Slightly astringent. Maybe a little too bubbly. It hits my tongue and blows up.
Overall: I probably should have read the previous warnings about the cork. I twisted off the cage and nearly lost my bowel when cork grazed my forehead. But otherwise this is a brilliant sasion. I absolutely love it. My only complaint is the excessive carbonation. It makes it difficult to pour and slow to drink. Plus the carpet got a quarter of the bottle when it exploded and gushed. And I HATE pulling carpet fibers stuck between my teeth.

Cork sails immediately upon open, into multiple glasses as it gushes a bit. Very cloudy cider color with a fat white hat that leaves quickly. Not a great looking beer but since it's a saison gave it a break.

Low potency nose, surprisingly, but some pepper, sweet grain, hay, and tart yeast are nice low key members of the bouquet.

More potent taste, all the stars of the aroma present, pepper a touch forward, and some herbal bitter is in there as well. Would have scored this even higher, but the sip ends a bit too herbal and pepper, not tart enough.

Average mouth for a saison, lot of leeway given here, a bit overcarbed, could be a better finish, all in all nice but hardly great.

This minor treat must have seemed all but invisible to those indulging on Cantilon. Decent, don't turn down a glass for sure.

750ml cork and caged bottle that was brewed in collaboration with the famous beer bar of the same name in Orlando, FL. The front red label has the Redlight Redlight double eagle symbol. Below the eagle is the real name of the beer, Patte De Singe. The back red label tells you why it was brewed and what it was brewed with. The back label also contained the mandatory US info, but no bottled date. When you pop the cork, look at the cork closely. On the cork is where you'll find the vintage year. This bottle is from 2012. Word of warning! When the cage comes off, the cork pops out. If will take out an eye if you're not careful.

When poured into an Ommegang Tulip, this rustic Farmhouse Ale was an extremely hazy and cloudy light lemon meringue yellow. It's almost a hazy gold color. Super large pillowy pearl white head of foam. It had one of those annoying heads of foam. A drop of liquid had about a 5 inch head of foam on it. Really slow retention that left behind a film of foam and about 2 tons of sticky white streaks of lace around the glass. This head of foam coated the glass with streaks and blots of lace.

The aroma was a little spicy. Not chili or pepper spicy. There was a nice punch of spices in the aroma. Up front was the fresh scent of sage flowed by a pinch of black pepper. This beer clearly had that rustic farmyard funk to it. Not a big amount, but enough for you to notice it. I also picked up a bunch of fruits in the aroma. I caught grapefruit, lemon, orange peel, and even a little red apple. My nose really enjoyed the scent of this beer.

The taste wasn't as rustic as the aroma said it might be. The farmyard funk shined through just a tad. The taste was mostly all about the fruits and spices. Starting off the taste was the citrus fruits. These citrus fruits were the grapefruit, lemon peel, tangerine, and lemon. Directly after the fruits was the sage and black pepper. After all that, the taste them finishes up with a few floral notes, a touch of yeast, and slightly bitter citrus hops.

This was a light to medium bodied Farmhouse Ale with a good level of carbonation, and a slightly funky aftertaste. This funky aftertaste was filled with citrus fruits, floral notes, citrus hops, yeast, and sage. This aftertaste linger on for a few minutes after the sweet nectar passed over my tongue.

Not the best Farmhouse Ale that I've had, but its still a very good one. If I owned a great craft beer bar and a local brewery made a beer of this quality and slapped my name on it, I would be happy.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: large frothy head, 3 fingers, on a cloudy dull body with hints of orange.

S: lots of tropical fruit with mostly banana and pineapple, yeast, wheat

T: peppercorn, yeast, grains, more of a generic citrus flavor than the aroma, club soda, coriander and other herbs.

M: medium creamy body and high carbonation.

Overall: a little too carbonated for me. Interesting difference between the aroma and flavor. Flavor is more milky and funky with aroma more sweet. A dynamic brew, glad I got to try this one.

A - Pours with a huge, four finger head of white foam on top of a hazy, golden body. The foam settles slowly and leaves thick lace on the glass.

S - Stronly funky yeast with notes of pineapple, mango, and black pepper.

T - Sour wheat and fruit juice up front. Spicy notes of black pepper, clove, and lemon in the middle. Finishes with horse blanket funk and more lemon pepper.

M - Medium body, moderately high carbonation, and a dry finish.

D - Very nice, the standard St Somewhere funk with some fruity character frm the slice additions.
