On tap. Hazy bright yellow color with creamy, bright white head. Aroma is really floral with rose petals and also some grass. Taste starts a bit tart, lactic with floral notes but finishes quite abrupt with almost no aftertaste. Light body with light to medium carbonation.

750 ml bottle from Lifesource in Salem OR. $8.99 ( on sale). 5.8% alc volume. After a rather foam filled pour it settles down and is a hazy yellow bodied beer with a large frothy white head. Aroma of slight barnyard, earth, leaves and a bit of wood and berry. Taste is the same as the aroma but with a bit of rose bud. MOuth feel is fine enough..dryish finish medium small bubbled carbonation.’ OK beer but i think past its best

Medium body, with a slight creamy mouthfeel. Tropical fruit on the nose and hints of banana.
Little to no head, but ver crisp. This a very interesting farmhouse, because you do get some rose pedals on the nose, and a slightly sweet malt finish. Overall decent beer

750mL into a tulip. Pours a pale hazy yellow w/ a 1-finger white head.

Aroma is herbal and a little funky, earthy. Wet hay, dried flowers, a touch of pollen.

Taste is light and crisp with some Belgian funk, floral hops, and a touch of bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel is dry, a little prickly.

Overall an OK beer, almost a cross between a saison and a witbier.

I had this beer on-tap in a tulip at the brewery.

Appearance: gorgeous silvery-yellow hue with just the right amount of haze and a thin layer of creamy white foam. Love it.

Smell: lightly sweet, wheaty and with just a dash of floral character. I really like it.

Taste: soft and wheaty, like a witbier with just a dash of funk. The floral elements are restrained and add just a dash of welcome character. I dig it.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: refreshing and restrained -- I like it.
