Drinking this at The Ponysaurus Brewery in Downtown Durham NC.
Poured from a tap into a pint glass.
Looks Nice white foamy head that lasted.
Smells yeasty, banana, cloves.
Taste follows the nose nicely.
Mouth feel is medium plus for the style.
Overall a very good Farmhouse Saison that I would definitely order again!

Orange-golden light haze with one finger white head settling down to a surface ring and islands. Substantial lacing and residual carbonation.
Sharp spicy yeast scent, plus sour peach, floral notes.
Vivid Peach, pear, pale malt, white pepper, white wine flavors
Medium bodied, light sweetness up front with a light acidic kick on the way down. Good carbonation, fruity aftertaste.
Very enjoyable back yard warm weather beer.

I really enjoyed this Saison. Pours a little lighter in color than other saisons. Nice head and decent mouthfeel, good lacing. It was the taste that did it for me. It reminded me why I liked saisons. One of the better offers from Ponysaurus and really delivers at only 6% ABV.

Received as an extra in a trade and shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice clear daryl honey gold with a thin head that fades to leave thin wisps.

S - Aromas of big Belgian yeast and esters, nice light funk, almost banana like.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with nice light malts, really good Belgian yeasts and esters, nice banana notes. Really tastes like a cross between a raisin and a hefe.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, lighter bodied. Could use more carb.

O - Overall this was a rather interesting saison, very hefeweizen like which while tasty isn't quite true to style.

Serving Type: can

Thanks to rudzud
Light fizzy head, no retention, get light lacing, semi hazy golden tan color

Nose nice farmhouse saison, plenty of esters, fruity tree fruit, little banana, creamy wheat, touch peppery and touch vegetal, phenol notes

Taste mild gristy grainy malt, creamy toasty wheat, little honey malt, then more fruity esters, apple pear banana, hefe like spices, mild peppery phenols little bitterness, touch herbal again, little spicy hop bitterness late, more banana and fruit

Mouth is med bod little softer creamy, decent carb but needs more

Overall not bad, pretty tasty but more like cross between hefe and mild saison

A: Pours a relatively clear medium amber in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation and hints of golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy light beige head that slowly reduces to a few small patches of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of toasted grainy malts with moderate aromas of spicy, fruity yeast. Hints of earthy + floral hops.

T: Upfront there is a slightly less than moderate flavor of grainy + toasted malts with a light to moderate amount of light fruit (apple + pear) sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of spicy saison yeast as well as some light to moderate flavors of fruity yeast. Finally there is a light flavor of earthy + floral hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which fades away pretty quickly.

M: Medium bodied with slightly heavier than moderate amounts of carbonation. Initially crisp with a hint of dryness in the finish

O: Enjoyable though a touch sweeter than I expected for the style. Easy to drink with relatively well hidden alcohol. I totally support the idea behind the beer, treat others as you want to be treated.
