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.

Poured into pint glass from a 16oz tall boy. The look has a great head initially along with pretty good lacing as I continued to drink. Not picking up much of an aroma, just malts. The taste is sweet with very subtle orange peel notes. Refreshing taste, as the traditional saison styles typically are. The mouthfeel is creamy with significant body accompanied by a crisp, dry bite at the end. Overall, I'd drink with a sweet Farm Girl again.

16oz can poured into a tulip glass

A- pours a clear bright golden color with a one-finger head that disappears quickly, leaving nothing behind, constant bubble shooting to the top

S- peppery spice and clove aroma mix with some earthy yeast, dried hay & some ripe pear sweetness

T- light banana & clove mixes with sourdough sweetness, some spicy yeast & fruity lingers of citrus & pear

M- medium body with low carbonation leads to a slightly creamy mouthfeel that continues into a dry finish

O- crisp and refreshing saison that has high drinkability

Barely qualifies for the saison moniker. Short lived head, no lace. Body is a tad thin. Aroma isn't bad- yeast, wet grain, but little pungency. Slightly on the sweet side. Meh.

MF - Light bodied and dry with a bit of sweetness 3.5
