This beer pours a slightly hazy yellow with a medium sized head. The aroma is a little ctirusy, with some lemon and lime zest, as well as bubblegum, hay, lemongrass, and underripe banana.The flavor is a bit less bright than the aroma, with straw, pine, melon rind, and a vague herbal quality. The mouthfeel is light, with classically exuberant saison carbonation. Overall this is a well done beer, and I would perhaps have done better to taste with a meal, as it seems very food friendly. However, I found it a touch too grassy and herbal, just not quite to my taste.

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a pale yellow color and a cloudy texture. There was a half inch of foamy head that lasted an average amount of time. Very good lacing.

S: A nice aroma of citrus, light tropical fruit, yeast, and spices.

T: Tasted of a lot of tropical fruit (passion fruit, mango), banana, citrus (lemon, in particular), Belgian yeast, pepper, cloves, coriander, and a light bready quality. A much fruitier flavor than you find with most saisons, but this isn't a bad thing. It's sweet, lively, and fairly complex.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a vibrant finish. Light- to medium-bodied.

O: Standard is a solidly made, easy to drink saison. Drinkable and perfect for the summer.

Pours a pale straw with over a finger of white head. The nose is yeasty and slightly soapy. The flavor has the classic peppery essence but the promised hoppiness is fairly muted.

The pour from the 12 oz. bottle is a clearer yellow than I expected; perhaps it is me, but I associate farmhouse with turbid, clouded, & murky. Smells like pine, yeast, slightly dank pine. Modest.

Hoppy Farmhouse is suffering from hefe envy. A pec of bananas here, along with plenty of wheat, grainy, touch of citrus & lemon.

I have nothing else to say. Straight bland, straight mediocre. Nothing to see here.

Citrus, passionfruit, bread dough, and flowers in the aroma. Seems a little tangy. Oranges, mandarins, kumquats. Chamomile and honey. A touch of white pepper and vanilla. Juicy and sweet.

Full and juicy. Kumquats and meyer lemons. Loads of fruit. Doughy malt character. A touch of spicy Saaz-like hops. Some bubblegum.

Pours hazy straw with a small white head. Not much retention, little lacing.

Medium light body, medium low carbonation. Though the body is light, juicy fruits and doughy malt fill the palate. Tons of flavor. A touch more carbonation might be appreciated. Very dry.

Juicy and fruit forward. Tons going on. Refreshing.
