Hazy yellow with a medium white head and good lacing. Aroma of white chardonnay with a good Farmhouse character, cat pee, funk and notes of pilsner malt. Taste is slightly sweet with white wine, Farmhouse yeast, light malty notes and citrus. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium body. Good carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Very good hoppy Saison.

A: Pours a hazed grapefruit juice color with a nice, soapy off white head. Leaves awesome lace spattered down the glass.

S: Smell is fantastic. Grapefruit pith, lemon, limestone, a slight bit of passionfruit and a ton of barnyard. Grass, pepper and a touch of bread crust.

T: A slightly spicy hop presence upfront. A lingering grapefruit juice bitterness on the back with some grass, hay, barnyard and a touch of lemon. Finishes with a lingering grassy bitterness and some lemon meringue. Mouthfeel is lively and crisp without being overcarbonated. This is probably the best I've had from these guys to date.

A: Poured into a tulip glass it produced a bright white, two finger head with mixed sized bubbles, mostly fine, that quickly receeded. No lacing to speak of but a small amount of alcohol legs when swirled in the glass. A moderately hazy, straw yellow to lemon peel yellow color.

S: Strong tart lemon zest with spicey, clove like aromas. The 'barn yard' descripter seams apropriate here. very earthy, but not like dirt more like foresty. light fresh bread malts. very complex.

T: A punch of firm bitterness that surprised me and the aroma didn't elude to (i liked it). barnyard, horsehair vibe throughout but not over powering or clowing. balance is on the sweet side despite the initial bitterness punch. bready, doughy malts are subdued by the huge yeast/fermentation character.

M: Extremely dry finish with moderate carbonation. There is a lingering bitterness in the beer that almost tasted different than when its being consumed. A bit of a sharp carbonic bite that works with the spicey notes.

O: A bitter, zesty, spicey farmhouse that has some unique flavors. I like the beer and might try it again, but probably not something i'd keep on regular rotaion.
