Light clear color with a respectable head. The nose had a grainy background, with hints of spice and yeasty-earthiness. The taste was very light, a wheat ale with a splash of lemon zest at the end and some gentle earthy spice. The feel was crisp and light, an easy drinker that disappears quickly.

If I was told this was a what beer, I would applaud it's slight twist with fun saison zesty flavors, but with the expectation in mind for a farmhouse ale, it was too light and boring. Fine taste, well-balanced and drinkable, but too plain for my preference.

12 oz. pour at the Old Village Hall in Lanesboro, MN.

A: Clear, pale gold with a white, rocky head that quickly dissipates but leaves behind lots of sticky lacing on the glass.

S: Light, fresh, grassy with a minimum of either hops or malt.

T: Clean, fresh taste, herbaceous, grassy, like a kolsch or helles. Reminiscent of Schell's Sommerfest.

M: Light, refreshing, good carbonation with a short finish. Crisp on the tongue.

O: Okay, but not my cup of tea. I doubt I'd order it again.
