For the first pour and impression of a farmhouse ale this has the perfect appearance. With a perfect cloudy golden color that has a nice frothy white head that settles very slowly with a conservative bit of lacing down the glass. I attribute this lack of lacing the the richness of he ad. It looks as if the shrinking head were pulling the foam down from the sides. There the foam sticks the lacing is not so much lacing as it is more of a ramped up foam that is about 1/2 thick and just doesn't go away.

The beer is fairly effervescent with strong pine scents from the hops and subtle sweetness from the malts. Overall the nose is not as complex as I was expecting with just the faintest traces of bread. The hops are dominant and the malt is in between.

The taste is a very Americanized farmhouse style ale with overpowering hoppiness as one would expect from American brewers. The undertones are very much like a Saison DuPont farmhouse ale. The flavors are near perfectly balanced and extremely enjoyable.

The moutfeel is a tad bit more watery that I expected, especially given the richness of the head. Not bad, but could be a tab bit more rich in my opinion.

Overall this is extremely drinkable and very good. The palate is pleased by the balance on hops riding on the malt. I find this one extremely satisfying and will be drinking it again.
