Awesome summer beer. Good flavor, perfect for those 80+ degree days.

I poured this from a bottle into a clear teardrop glass. It pours a light golden with a great two finger white head. The taste is a little sweet and tastes like a saison should. It's good beer. I see any beer lover liking this one. I'd buy it again.

This beer is pleasant enough, but unfortunately it's not much more than that. The taste has bananas and a bit of yeast. The body is quite thin. It's just barely a saison. It's innocuous, and OK if that's what you're looking for.

Not dreadful, but not dreadfully good, either. Farm Girl has a nice, pale pearly-flaxen color, but very flat appearance otherwise, with very little excitement or carbonate crown; there's likewise quite little operating on the nose, with no sharpness or bite expressed, instead simply a very vague grassy-malt note. The flavors, too, lack crispness: Farm Girl is too viscous, too oddly creamy, and too sugary-malty, for my tastes—nor particularly capturing the best elements of the style—with only a little bit of yeasty tartness to salvage this farmhouse gambit. It's also big on the banana flavors—reminiscent, in that way, more of a thin wit or confused hefe—and altogether sort of cloying, absent those wild, funky-fresh qualities I so enjoy from saison's stylistic spectrum. Overall, misguided, sort of moribund-on-arrival, and whelmed by a somewhat over-manufactured feel.
