Pours a murky light orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks and dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, pepper, lime juice, and citrus zest. Taste is much the same with peppery and chalky flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of citrus zest bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with some great aromas and flavors that make this one super easy to drink.

Thanks for the heads up Herf!

Appearance: golden, sunny, cloudy, ample carbonation streams, bright white head, 2 finger, lacy.

Aroma: lemon, Brett, hay, mild funkiness, herbal, floral and grassy hops, light grains.

Taste: grassy, floral hop notes, lemongrass, grains of paradise, pepper, spice, Brett funk, musky hay, bitter hop finish.

***One of the best hoppy Saison ales I think I've had. It's not overly funky and Bretty, but, but the hop and Saison funk marriage is well executed were neither outshine the other. Awesome!

Seems like the first west coast review as this is newly distributued to Southern California.
Labeled as a hoppy farmhouse ale with 7 little scenes on "how to noodle" (i.e., catfisting).

A: Gentle pour yields a +2-finger white head over a clear straw yellow with streaming carbonation. Slowly fading head leaves irregular rings and splotches.

N: Bready yeast, peppery spices, floral and fruity, lemony citrus, and mildly funky.

T: Yeasty, and earthy with mild spices. Citrus peel (orange and lemon). Wheat and malt grain.

M: Semi-moderate body and semi-full carbonation. Pleasant yeasty/grainy/citrus finish with a slight bitterness draws you back for another sip.

O: Easy drinking and refreshing. A starter and not something to turn to after having anything bigger since this is more delicate and simple. Look forward to trying others from this brewery.

12oz bottle poured into an Allagash stemmed glass. Never heard of the brewery or the beer, so going in blind on this one.

A - Pours a mostly clear pale golden color and a dense two finger cap of white foam that has very good staying power. Foamy lacing left on the sides of the glass.

S - Nice spicy and fruity aroma...cloves, oranges, lemons, a bit of pepper, some sugar and some mild hoppy bitterness. Nice blend of standard saison aromas...very enticing.

T - Flavor doesn't disappoint either. Soft malt base with some spicy cloves, coriander, some pepper...quite estery. Nice fruity, citrusy components too - full of oranges and lemons. Mid level hop bitterness that gives a bit of bite towards the finish and helps dry things out a bit.

M - Medium body with an aggressive higher level carbonation. Nice hoppy bitterness and spicy and fruity flavors.

O - I liked this beer a lot. Very flavorful saison that has good complexity and balance and a nice assertive hop bitterness. Went out on a limb on this one and turned out to be a good find. Definitely see myself buying more of this especially during the summer time. How can you go wrong with a bottle that has artwork showing instructions for "noodling" (i.e. - sticking your hand in underwater holes to catch catfish)...great stuff!

Pours medium hazy gold with a foamy white head. A rocky skim of retention. Some lace. Great label -- how to noodle, showing catfish and fist.

Nice malt note up front, some spice, like white pepper, some tropical fruit, and yeast funk. Mine might be too cold, as the strength of aroma is mild. But I still get all those notes.

Some bitter malt up front, some seltzer-like qualities, husk, raw grain, very brief fruit, crackers, bitter herb. My one fault is that taste is fleeting, and it feels a bit thin (I'm holding back the term watery, but it is almost there). Aftertaste is mildly bitter.

Lighter bodied, well carbonated. Almost too much fizz.

A good domestic version of the style. Hits the right points, and has enough complexity. Some flaws, but fairly drinkable.

12 oz. bottle served in a Prairie tulip glass. Pours a cloudy, yellow golden color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is a bit of straw, pepper, fruity esters, and earthy/grassy hops. Flavor is pale malts, grainy, pepper, lemon, yeasty, and a hint of funk. Mouthfeel is light, dry, refreshing and slightly bitter. Really good beer, great session beer.
