Pours a clear, gold color. 3/2 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of wheat, yeast, sweet malt, slight pale malt, hops, hint of alcohol, and slight spice. Fits the style of a Saison / Farmhouse Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of wheat, yeast, sweet malt, slight pale malt, hops, hint of alcohol, slight spice, hint of earthy malt, and a hint of grass. Overall, good appearance, aroma, and decent body and blend.

Great farm ale/saison. Look, body and taste above average. Less bubbles than others such as Hennipin.

Appearance: This might be the most authentically Belgian pour I have ever seen from a domestically produced beer; pours a huge billowy head atop the hazy honey colored liquid; excellent stickage and swathes of lacing linger

Smell: Phenolically bready and earthy, with lemon, banana, white pepper, melon, graham cracker, brown sugar, pear....the list goes on and on

Taste: Bready, up front, with growing tones of lemon, white pepper, graham cracker, banana, pear, streusel topping; slightly herbal, grassy and increasingly phenolic, after the swallow, with hints of funk and sugar cookie in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: I may have cellared this just a little bit beyond the two year limit but, regardless of that, this is a phenomenal beer; one of the best examples of a domestic Saison I have encountered

Great American saison!
L - Slightly hazy yellow/golden. White head but was gone quick.
S- breads malt, honey and some farmhouse funk.
T- simple but really well executed! Taste follows nose. Delicate honey bread malt, subtle spice and a very slight grassy hops and the funky yeast esters you expect from a good saison. Really good stuff!
O- great saison from a great brewery.
