Love this collaboration!

Massive carbonation, lively yeast. Light golden color, solid haze with a monsterous foam cap. Airy white foam, holds strong. Fat, sticky lacing.

The aroma is very classic, authentic farmhouse style. Golden wheat, spelt, Amarillo hops, funky, earthy, Belgian yeast sour notes. Smells like wet earth, hot and dry wheat and herbs.

I just love the Authentic Farmhouse style mouthfeel, light, seriously carbonated, airy, zippy and lush. Such an easy and enjoyable style.

The flavor is just straight classic Farmhouse. Spelt, golden wheat maltiness, herbal and zippy yeast along with a very effective dose of Amarillo hops that provide even more of a dry-earthy, old world style hop flavor. The balance and execution of this style here is just right on. Such an excellent collaboration!

Very carbonated. Poured a golden color. Very light scent of lemon, but kind of bland. Very dry taste with a champagne feel from the carbonation. Mild flavor, but pretty drinkable.

An excitable pour, lively carbonation, fluffy cap, some minuscule yeast clumps. Aroma is rather flat, just a littlr soft hay and hop vine. Taste was also somewhat bland, strong yeast accent, lacks the bouncy farmhouse flavors you find in many saisons, and the hop bite at the end doesn't improve the profile.

Dry and lemony. Surprisingly clean, just a hint of musty barnyard. Pilsner-like noble hop presence, both on the nose and palate. Not terribly complex, just really well constructed and tasty.

Pours pale gold in color, lightly hazy, two plus fingers of long lasting rocky white head that leaves behind lots of lacing. Aroma is lightly grainy, peppery, a bit lemony, and has a light hay note that comes through more as it warms. Taste hits the same notes with a dry, moderately bitter finish. Medium-light body with effervescent carbonation. Overall I very much enjoyed this beer, it's super tasty and hits the perfect notes for a saison.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy pale golden/straw color with a 2 finger foamy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon, tangerine, pear, apple, white grape, citrus zest/peels, peppercorn, herbal, grass, hay, straw, musty funk, wheat, cracker, light honey, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy/funky yeast, citrus hops, and light-moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, tangerine, pear, apple, white grape, citrus zest/peels, peppercorn, herbal, grass, hay, straw, musty funk, wheat, cracker, light honey, and yeast earthiness. Large amount of yeast spiciness and light-moderate herbal/citrus peel bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, tangerine, pear, apple, white grape, citrus zest/peels, peppercorn, herbal, grass, hay, straw, funk, wheat, cracker, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy/funky yeast, citrus hops, and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance; and zero astringent flavors after the finish. High carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, clean, dry, and fairly grainy/bready/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. A bit prickly/foamy, but not overwhelming. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6%. Overall this is an awesome saison! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy/funky yeast, citrus hops, and light-moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Awesome yeast complexity with complementing hop flavors; and a solid malt backbone. A highly enjoyable offering.
