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.

Hint of orange. I liked it but wasn't that crazy about it. Definitely worth a try. Nice after a hot day mowing and weeding.

Taste is a little weird, I think it's the orange peel. Otherwise, not a bad saison. Would be a good session beer if it wasn't 6%

i picked up a four pack of pint cans of these and i was glad i did. nice beer from these guys, although very american on the saison front, new and clean and quite belgian, less farmy and rustic and wild, but very good just the same. rather clear in looks for a saison, with a delicate lace white head on top. carbonation is rampant, really aggressive, tickling my nose as i try to smell it. notes of honey and clover and white wheat are all there, and the yeast takes on a belgian aroma, fruity without any of the horsey funk i like in the style. the flavor is a lot less yeast driven than most saisons, although it works in this context. the malt is very fresh and very light, makes a nice base. there is also a fun hopping going on in this, citrus and pear is what i get out of it, and with the yeast, which tastes a little more like a saison than it smells, the combination is excellently bright and refreshing. not much residual on the palate here, it drinks down very clean, forced to by the high carbonation. i found this super refreshing, pleasantly hoppy, and overall quite tasty. its nowhere near the best saisons out there, and i almost like it better in a sort of blonde ale context, but this is great beer for hot weather and i would buy it again.
