Very light colored yellow pour, small foamy head, no real retention but some lacing. Floral nose, very light with a great balance between the hops and yeast. Taste is like most hopped Belgian saisons and done rather well, some small bitterness on the finish. Body is medium and carbonation is average.

Quite good stuff, typically not a Belgian IPA fan, but this seemed more like a hoppy Saison.
Pale orange, saturated with a haze and ample creamy foam that left behind a halo of lacing.
Aroma is herbal, dried botanicals and pleasant dry hop character. Not really a hop bomb.
Taste is bitter with distinct Belgian yeast supporting the herbal hop character. Light spiciness from both elements.
Medium bodied, crisp and effervescent. Smooth feel, pleasantly bitter and snappy.
Really good, nice balance with interesting flavors that integrate well. Recommended.

after how good the kumquat was, i was searching all over the place to try more of their beer, and could not have been more excited to try this one, but it was a huge letdown for me, nowhere near as good as the kumquat, and truthfully, there isnt much farmhouse about it. its clear and deep golden in color, sporting a nice inch of white head, and looks quite bright in the glass. the nose is hoppy, fruity, and a little belgian from the yeast, but i dont even get a saison strain, let alone any brett or bugs in here. its too fresh for what its trying to be, too clean, too cleaned up, too refined you know? the hops are more bitter than flavorful, a little tropical note i suppose, but more grain weight and residual sweetness than i like in the style too. its a little fruity from the yeast, and a little spicy, definitely more belgian than anything else. not a bad beer, not at all, but its not what its advertised as, and i was definitely a little disappointed here. surprised its being reviewed so highly. it looks like they have a brett edition too, and thats exactly what this one needs...
