This is an ever changing farmhouse ale, and eventually needs to either be listed by batch, or have some batch information in the notes. i have tried batch #2, #3, #4, and #5, and they are each different. From what I understand, it is the same base recipe fermented with a different yeast strain each batch. I found 2 & 3 to be rustic, tart, and funky, #4 was a traditional french saison yeast (dupont maybe?!), and #5 seems to be a tripel or wit yeast with loads of banana esters to boot. My rating is for batch #3, my favorite.

750 mL gusher of a bottle. Batch 3, which is a yeast unique to each batch. Hazy with an ample white head that settles to a chunky surface and a medium collar. Smells a little lemony. Yeasty, A little doughy and equally acidic. Tart taste. Lots of pale malt. Very yeasty finish. Medium light and high carbonation. Whatever the single yeast is, it takes over and dominates the flavor.

Pours with a foamy egg shell white head. Body is a murky golden straw tone. Nose is flower and has a hint of rose petal white fruits and soap. Crisp and wonderfully mouth filling with soft apricot and champagne notes. This turns creamy as you continue to drink. Really really good beer that is a real joy to drink.
