Appearance is light golden and cloudy with a creamy white foam cap. Aroma is funky earthy, herbal, and barnyard like. Taste starts with a sweet malt that gives way to a slightly spicy character with a bit of tartness on the end. Also pick up some fruity notes of apricot and pear. Mouthfeel is light to moderate with a little creaminess. Finish is a really well balanced with a slight bit of tartness but not overpowering. Great saison.

Not being a huge saison fan, this brew is delish. Very soft, delicate flavors. Mild banana and clove, farmhouse Funk is there but subtle. Medium soft feel with a crisp finish. Excellent brew.

Pours a hazy banana yellow. The nose is of light lemon, Belgian yeast and fresh grasses.
Taste is of Belgian yeast, spicy, moms homemade banana cream pie and light grass. A little velvety on the mouthfeel. Good beer. It has that huge banana flavor that you often see in this style tho it's banana is a bit more creamy .

Pale yellow hazy pour with a lasting finger of white foam that laces thoroughly. Aroma is tangy lemon, yeast, a touch of spice and a slight grassiness. Flavor is different from the nose, with a soft sweetness balancing some slight bitter/tangy fruits like apple and pear. Very, very tasty. Overzealous carbonation/effervescence detracts from the delicious flavor for me.

Finally got to try this one. Poured a very thick and quickly dissipating head. Cloudy orange gold color with a sea of sediment. It has the farmhouse funk on the smell, but it's not overpowering. Same with the taste, very smooth and refreshing. A truly great beer, one I will definitely buy again. Many times, probably.
