Poured from 12oz can into glass. '06081' stamped on can bottom. ABV% on label is 5.8%.
Cloudy, straw colored body. Slight fizzy head upon pouring goes back to a few scattered island spots and a thin ring. Leaves just a few spots of lacing.
As described, this is a dry hopped farmhouse ale. Lot of dry hopped aroma. More of a generic funky sweat sock.
Taste is more descriptive, with dry yeast, vague/faint dried stone fruit. Dry hopped throughout, not juicy at all.
Mouth feel is medium, with prevalent dryness and no sparkle. Low carbonation.
Base farm house ale with heavy dry hops. Extremely dry but hoppy. Odd but satisfying.

Was highly impressed with Bomb! so I decided to pick up this farmhouse ale. I figured I'd had a couple that were pretty decent.

L: Love the art. With a gentle pour, it comes out with almost no haze at all, but upon pouring the last of the can, the haze spools around until the whole body becomes completely opaque. A big, soapy white head dissipates quickly into sparse strings of lacing, like a grove of Joshua Trees.

S: Sweet lychee covers over tart quince, lemon, yellow grapefruit and a hint of lime, finishing with fresh white grape spiced with a mild floral honeysuckle, a peppery basil aroma, and some white wine vinegar funk. A touch of french bread escapes the tart and hoppy cloud.

T: Lemon and grapefruit dominate on the palate, with a good amount of lychee and white grape coming through underneath. Mid-sip, white wine vinegar hits, bringing astringent dryness along with the honeysuckle and basil. It hardly tastes like beer, more like sour champagne. And yet, I love it. But I'm a sour ale guy. I'd pair with sushi or a turkey sandwich with deli mustard.

F: Crisp, clean and dry, but surprisingly rich and smooth. Excellent.

O: This is easily the best-tasting farmhouse ale I have had, and she keeps in the fridge beautifully. Tastes almost exactly how it did when I bought the six a couple months ago. I'll have to give Standard a try if I see it.

Aroma is citrus/pine, fresh yeast and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is citrus, malts, tropical fruit, slight spices/Belgian yeast and a sweet/mildly hoppy finish.

L- Straw colored, small lacy head. Crisp and light look. Looks alright.
S- Floral, sour brett aroma, lemon, sweet candy, sugar all compiled together to create an extremely nice aroma.
T-Sour and crisp lemon and lime with even more citrus, brett is very present. Extremely tasty.
F- Crisp and dry. Just the way I like it.
O-This was a very nice saison made by an extremely honorable/respected brewery. Every sip was savored. A very well made saison that I will drink again.

The fairly clear golden yellow beer pours out into a Duvel glass with a 1 1/2” ivory head that visibly but slowly recedes to leave a thin irregular island of foam on the surface and a small ring around the glass with a few spots of lacing on the sides of the glass. Sipping creates a couple of arches of lacing and some widely scattered patches, most of which slide back down to the ring around the glass.

The aromas include some citrus—lemon and lime—along with a bit of white wine, some light tropical fruits and some white peppery spiciness.

The flavors are much as expected from the nose there is the citrus, some white wine and, in the background, some tropical fruits. In addition there’s some light sweetness, some bready character from the malt, just a bit of tartness, some white pepper spiciness and a very light herbal bitterness from the hops.

The mouthfeel is on the light side of medium bodied and a bit prickly from the moderate carbonation. The dry finish begins as the sweetness and bready malt begin to fade allowing the citrus, the yeast flavors, the light tartness and the touch of white pepper to show along with the light herbal bitterness that in the dry ending after everything else has disappeared.

Overall a very refreshing, drinkable beer that I’ve enjoyed trying and would be happy to have again. The aroma/flavor profile seems to me to be a bit unique for a saison and well worth exploring again. But, all things considered, I probably will not be adding this to my regular rotation.
