In my opinion this beer develops very well over time, from what I recall this beer contains all the cultures from the previously released beers of that year, so think of it as an anniversary to an extent.

Had multiples of the one from 2016, started off slightly off, decent funk. Subsequently gained tartness and a nice crisp lemongrass flavor. I'll try to remember to update when I do a side by side of '16 & '17.

Trade from Don'tDrinkBeer

Normally I can type a beer's name directly into google and have it take me to the appropriate beeradvocate page. Congratulations to Highland Park on hacking that particular gibson. Also, the top suggested google search was "all the yeast infections," because apparently you can have more than one yeast infection at once.

Nice bottle art. Pours very dull-colored and fizzy, medium hazy with a tiny white head that dissipates quickly.

Smells... yeasty. White pepper dominates, with a little bit of clove and potting soil. Nice, and perfectly suited for the style.

Tastes at it smells: earthen yeast up front, little bit of a saison barley in the middle with some pleasant lemongrass, finishing with a wonderful, delicate mixture of lemon and pepper. This is maybe the sort of saison that would benefit from mild skunking--I fear maybe the oak aging robbed it some complexity--but it still comes together really well.

Yeast's effect upon aroma and flavor is frankly undervalued, and it's really neat to see a yeast-forward session saison. Things get mucky when you're talking about a premium-priced beer that comes in at a lower ABV, but as a trade toss-in this was top notch.

- 2015 vintage
- 4oz. pour off tap into flight glass at Haven (Orange, CA) on 14-Jan-16

A grassy and farmhouse with some mango zest and a bit of funk. Overall, a nice saison.

On tap at Highland Park Brewery in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a murky yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Thin streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with grain, fruit, funk, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour grain, fruit, and earth flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is tasty, light, and easy to drink.

Serving type: on tap.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a Duvel tulip glass.

Pours hazy bright orange yellow body with a pretty big fizzy white head that reduces to leave a little lacing and not much retention.

Aromas are very inviting - funky farmhouse, heavy peach , mango, citrus, lactic, white wine, spices. Stunning on the nose.

The tongue doesn't exactly match the nose, but is still tasty. Peppery, wheaty, light tart fruit and citrus rind, grapefruit, light oak, light bitterness on the finish. Medium high carb and medium light body, very drinkable.

The nose is amazing, the taste is a solid standard farmhouse. Very drinkable.
