22oz bottle, one of a new pair of this Bend brewing concern's offerings to make it northward to Alberta suds emporia.

This beer pours a hazy, pale golden yellow colour, with four fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and rather fizzy bone-white head, which leaves a few chunky swaths of chemtrail lace around the glass as it slowly and lazily subsides.

It smells of semi-sweet, grainy and crackery pale malt, testy earthy yeast, banana chips, muddled citrus pith, white pepper dust, and leafy, grassy, and herbal hop bitters. The taste is bready, slightly doughy, and biscuity pale and wheat malt, underripe banana, lemon rind, a touch of red apple skin, subtly funky yeast, mixed peppercorn spice, and more leafy, grassy, and somewhat perfumed floral hoppiness.

The carbonation is fairly active in its swirling effervescence, but amounts to only a small, tickling frothiness, the body a decent medium weight, and not particularly smooth, as both the yeast and spice trudge about a little too much. It finishes off-dry, just, as the bottom seems to drop out of the graininess, and the yeasty, fruity, and spicy essences mill about, waiting to die.

Overall, not a bad version of the style, though the 'unique' yeast strain does not provide an exactly unique end brew. Nicely warming, however, with little attendant booze astringency, and easy enough to put back a whole bomber's worth, I would imagine. So leave me to it, already!

Hazy pale gold with two fingers of quick falling white head. Lace is some splotches .
Smell is pungent yeast biscuit malts lemon grassy hops.
Taste is similar to the smell with a bit of tang on the middle of the tongue. Slightly astringent.
Mouthfeel is medium with plenty of carbonation. Finish is slightly dry and puckering.
Overall a decent attempt of this style from a Northwest brewer.
I might buy another as I suspect this is a fairly old bottle. Also this is a 7.3% abv beer and the alcohol is well hidden so treat with respect. From a 22 ounce bottle.

Delicious and close to a traditional saison. Rich color, yeasty nose. Alcohol is present at first then mellows. What a lovely beer from folks who don't usually dabble in this style.

Bottle from Fred Meyers in Boise. Decent aroma and taste, fast receding fluffy head. Aroma is musty yeast, taste brings in more of the savory herb flavors. Slick, substantial body. Finish lingers a bit.

Everything is in balance for a saison, but I feel to much is subdued. Nice and dry but need more spicy bite. Yeast characteristics are there but are not pronounced. I'm feeling this is an entry saison much better ones out their.

Pours a yellow, hazy color with a thin and quickly dissipating white head. Decent lace on side of glass.

Smells of grass, malt, lemon, pepper, and a bit of citrus sweetness. Pretty inclusive and full aroma here.

Taste is a bit tart, crisp, biting, and peppery--quite a bit of spice. There is also a bit of citrus presence at the end of the swallow. A bit of funkiness as well, befitting of the style. Pretty nice.

Mouthfeel is marked by moderate carbonation, a bit of spicy bite, and the slightest essence of tart citrus. Good presence.

On the whole, this a pretty nice American-brewed saison. Tasty, somewhat complex, and with a pretty potent backbone. This is a nice version of the style.

I had this beer on-tap in a globe at the brewery.

Appearance: nice cloudy yellow hue with a finger of frothy white foam. I like it.

Smell: lightly funky and refreshing with a nice sweetness. Not bad.

Taste: on the sweet side with a gentle funk and a light grassiness. There's almost a wheaty character going on, too. I like it.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a really well integrated carbonation and a very successful creaminess. So far these Worthy beers have great textures on-tap.

Overall: a good saison, but it's a dash too sweet and could maybe use a little more bite. Still, quite refreshing.

Chill hazed yellow colored beer with a small white colored head.

Smells strongly herbal. Scents of coriander and black pepper with honeysuckle. Mildly soap scent.

Starts out dry and mildly bitter. Floral flavor with some powdery yeast flavor. Spicy in the mouth mostly pepper.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a tasty dry Saison that will work when you can't get Hennepin.

22 oz bottle bought from Fred Meyers N.Salem store. $4.99 pours a clear golden yellow colour with a nice thick bubbly white head. Spicy,bubblegum, ginger and slight barnyard aromas..nice enough. Good balanced taste with still the spice and barnyard present. Some green apple in the back. Palate is good but needs a bit more carbonation for style. OK beer..i liked it.

22 oz bottle was poured into a large snifter.

Appearance: A two finger billowy head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a golden straw yellow with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Vanilla, pilsner malts, apple, bready malts, yeasty esters, and spices.

Taste: Same as above. Slight bitterness too.

Mouthfeel: A little dry, chewy, slight bitterness, medium bodied, and medium to high carbonation.

Overall: A nice saison that i was content with, but a little more spiciness and a cleaner taste would have made it better.

Poured into a chalice, Farm Out is clear gold with a white head, foamy, tight, with decent lace.

Smell is fruity esters, a little malty, big quinine like lime zest spritz.

Taste is fruity esterys, a hint of diacetyl. Pretty standard generic craft take on a saison. Pretty bright coriander citrus spice.

Mouthfeel is light and dry.

Drinkability is ok, a generic, over spiced saison lacking elegance, but certainly not offensive.

Almost no head to speak of, but a beautiful bright clear iridescent gold.

Very light consistency. Almost too thin.

Very light rice cake flavor with flour and saltines. A big yeastiness backs it up with a vegetable and strong mushroom note. A bit of clove and green banana here too. Graphite and steel finish off a long medium dry finish with a touch of white pepper.

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a hazy straw yellow color with about 3/4 inch of white head that had lightly moderate retention and almost no lacing.

The aroma was pretty much spot-on for I expect in the style, grain, yeast, spice and a certain earthiness. The taste had the same features, but they didn't have a lot of staying power, after a few seconds, I couldn't tell I had had a sip.

The body was perhaps a bit lighter than I find to be typical, but was very crisp and clean. Drinkability was good, but the higher than normal ABV seems to defeat the purpose of the style. Overall, a pretty nice brew, certainly worth trying if you see it.
