Bottle gushed as crazy. Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma has intense farmhouse notes, grassy, citrusy and funky. Taste is funky but not sour, really rustic and earthy notes. Balanced at first, just slightly bitter and dry on the finish. Really well made farmhouse ale.

Excellent take on the style. The aroma is mostly caramel malt with some fruit and a hint of barn. Flavor is bittersour, with a little sweet and citrus in the back. Body is softish. Easy drinking. Damn fine product.

Little cloudy, but the smell is exceptional very fruity without being overbearing in taste. Low ABV which means easy sipping. The taste is smooth with small hints of grapefruit and citrus. I would recommend this Saison to anyone looking for a solid introduction to the style or a long time lover of it.

Pours cloudy golden orange with a very thick white head that hangs around for a long time.

Smells like citrus and some sweeter fruits

Tastes lemon with honey sweetness in harmony. Almost like a lemon square or something. Some peppery spiciness in there as well. Towards the end the honey prevails and it ends on a sweet note.

MF-Dry and crisp

Overall: Really nice saison. I think I prefer the Ryan and the Beaster Bunny a little more, but the honey is definitely a great touch to add some sweetness.

If I close my eyes, I can imagine that I'm drinking a Dupont Biere de Miele, that brewery's saison with honey. This is every bit as classic. Slightly cloudy gold with a massive fluffy head, great fruity nose and flavor (not too sweet), and a remarkably creamy mouthfeel. Very impressive.

Orange with pink hues and a mountain of packed white froth.

Quite aromatic with grapefruit, orange, lemon, peppercorn and sugar.

Grainy and dry with a hint of lemon and fruit peel and dank with over-ripe fruit.

While there is no doubt this is a tasty and well-crafted brew, with so many great Saisons out there it will be hard for me to re-purchase due to one reason in particular that will remain unstated.

Poured a cloudy, orange body with one finger head and minimal lace. Bitter, slightly citric hopped aroma balances with touches of funk, spice and sweet malts. Smooth, light body that while sharp, almost sour at times, has a pumpkin(?) and honey sweetness in it that makes it easy to drink while remaining funky.
