Just an exceptional saison. Poured from a bottle picked up from my local shop. Bright, floral, but not overly robust. Slight hop finish. The chamomile is fresh, yet light, doesn't overpower. A very stellar farmhouse. This one will be a frequent guest in my fridge.

750 mL bottle poured into a Sam Smith's pint glass.

Perfect for a Summer evening.

A: Looks are subjective, but this is one heck of a pretty looking beer. The clearest, most filtered, pale yellow I've ever seen. Wonderful pearly white, soapy head. Just about a finger's worth of head, that sticks around for a decent amount of time. Does not go completely flat, clings to the edge of the glass. There is something about the bubbly head of a saison that is just fantastic; this guy is no different. Very pretty!

S: Just a bit of saison-funk, and a lot of sweetness. The chamomlie definitely comes out here. Second best smelling beer behind Daisy Cutter, IMO. Pleasant.

T: Wow wow wow. This is just fantastic. I assume the chamomlie is giving the beer just a subtle amount of sweetness. Finishes with a moderate amount of bitterness. Not a hoppy bitterness, but an earthy/vegetal bitterness. A wonderful balance of flavors.

M: Nice, light and refreshing. Nothing out of the ordinary here, but I will say this brew carbonates a lot in your mouth. It is a little distracting to swallow the beer, and have to take an extra gulp to get the bubbles out of your mouth. Never experienced this, maybe I did something out of the ordinary?

O: Maybe it's the fact that I had a long day at work and this was the perfect solution. Seems to smell and taste sweeter as you work through the bottle. A fantastically refreshing beer. Makes me wish I had a couple more! Well done Perennial!

Poured to an Ora et Labora taster.

A: Body is yellow and hazy. Head is white, and has an awesome retention, and also good lacing. Amazing looks just like a regular Farmhouse.
S: The aroma is so soft of chamomile, belgian yeast, white barley, wheat, clove, banana. It's so rich and so soft. Like a session beer.
T: The taste is basically the translation of the aroma, it starts with a flowery, banana and clove like aroma. Like if some wheat was used in here. It then moves to a more watery profile based on belgian yeast and finishes off on a very low bitterness. It's soo drinkable. It's soo session. It's amazing.
M: Body is medium to low. Carbonation is medium to low being close to perfection. Bitterness, sweetness and everything is mild and very balanced.
O: First Perennial I guess, and another Farmhouse I'm totally in love with. It's amazing.
