Poured into a wine glass. Slightly hazy golden yellow color with a very generous frothy white head that lasted for the entire drink. Prominent floral aromas, with pear, lemon, white pepper, and dough. A mild farmhouse funk as well. The taste ws as expected. Same notes as above, but the theme was a zesty bready flavor with spicy and floral undertones. Very dry on the finish. Outstanding.

"How can it be permissible?
She compromise my principle, yeah, yeah
That kind of love is mythical
She's anything but typical"

Great Saison! And I think Robert Palmer was drinking this when he wrote Simply Irresistible. Way to go Bob. Reviewed after my 2nd 750ml bottle.

750 ml bottled dated 10 2015

A clean, refreshing saison that is considered a benchmark of the style. If you don't like this beer, you're probably an asshole.

I had this Farmhouse Ale at a restaurant last evening and I loved it. However, there were a fair amount of floaties in it, which makes me think it might not have been entirely fresh. It tasted good though.

(L) It was semi clear with a yellow hue and a nice thick white head.

(A) It has a yeasty and fruity aroma.

(T) The taste was yeasty, bready, citrus, apple, pear, some pepper and some hoppy bitterness at the end. It was a nice mix of sweet, mildly tart and moderate bitterness.

(F) It was crisp and juicy easy drinking.

This is the platonic form of a saison/famhouse ale. Everyone else just hopes to be second best. Its a perfect balance of citrus zest, spicy yeast, malty wheat, herbal hops, and a refreshing beer.

Served from 750ml bottle into tulip glass.

Appearance: thick, foamy white head that grows as more streaming carbonation occurs in the glass. This beer is very active. Color is cloudy yellow with some particles in suspension.
Aroma: funky yeast is dominate with some citrus and spicy bread notes.
Mouthfeel: thin bodied with an extremely dry finish. About my only complaint with this beer is that it is almost TOO dry.
Flavor: yeasty bread dough, lingering citrus rind bitterness, sweet spices.
Overall: an outstanding beer in this style.
