Cloudy, Yeasty, Rindy, Spicy

This American-Belgian Weizen hybrid brewed with coriander seed and grapefruit peel pours a cloudy peach with a tight, white lace out of the can. Soft yeast aroma, some spice, and grapefruit rind. Mouthfeel is a bit watery. Flavor brings a slight apple tartness, grapefruit rinds, peppercorn, pithy astringency, soft coriander, and yeastiness with very little sweetness. There’s some breadiness with a dry, husky, and grainy finish. A most interesting hybrid.

The Farmhouse Ale description seems a bit deceptive. This reminds me of Karbach Weisse Versa, a hybrid American wheat ale with some Belgian wit spicing.

Got this in a trade with Scm2787 to even things up. Thanks...

Not really a fan of farmhouse ales/saisons .. but this one was pretty good.. a bit hoppy and spicy but super clean and well rounded. Beautiful mouthfeel nice finish and exceptionally drinkable. I had a friend try it and he wound up taking the other can... I imagine this is not the albeit of great farmhouse ales but it surely is a give it a try type of beer.

12 oz can pours a fairly clear gold color with a small white head. Not much for retention and lace.

Nose is honey, coriander, chamomile and graham crackers. Nowhere do I get any farmhouse aromas.

Calling this a farmhouse ale is like calling Miller Light a pilsener...no way, no how. Spiced saisons in general are one of my beer pet peeves - this one tastes like an American Wheat Ale with honey, syrup and coriander added in. Its not an atrocious beer, but it is far from advertised and I am pissed I spent 10 bucks on a sixer of this thinking I was going to get a saison. Mouthfeel is too heavy and sweet for a saison - there is nothing crisp, or wheat-like about it. If it was called a Blonde Ale with spices, it would fare much better.
