Pours hazy straw yellow with billowing white head. Aroma of lemon, melon, malt, wheat, slight grass, barnyard and mineral funk. The flavor hits all of the notes in the aroma with just a hint of tartness and cracked pepper. The feel is light and crisp with med-high carbonation. Tasty Beer.

From 750 ml "Fresh Draft Beer" bottle purchased today at Portland tasting room. Paper tag on bottle stamped May 11, 2016 (three weeks and 2 days from today)--a drink by date?
Pours slightly cloudy pale blond color. Small head lingers.
Light smell of earthy fruit.
Taste is very balanced, fruit, hops, slightly sour.
Feel is clean with noticeable fizz.
Overall a well-balanced farmhouse.

I tried this on tap at Hunger N Thirst served in a snifter chilled

The color is golden with thick haze and white head. The smell is very tropical with a hint of honeydew melon. The feel is fruity with some sour elements and low sweetness with moderately high carbonation.

The taste is good with light bitterness and fruity hop flavor with complimentary yeast and dry finish. Overall this is a great saison, very easy to enjoy and refreshing

Pours a hazy yellow color with a small pure white head. No retention whatsoever but some OK lacing. Kind of looks like lemonade.

The aroma has a good amount of tart citrus, as well as barnyard funk and spicy pepper.

The flavor follows the nose but adds a nice doughy malt character. A bit more grassy flavors than the aroma led on.

The mouth is light bodied with moderate carbonation. Crisp and refreshing. Slight hoppy bitterness lingers on the back end.

Overall a good beer that isn't relatively complex but still brings some great flavors. Very drinkable.
