Ferme de La Ville or “City Farm 15” is brewed with Belgian Pilsner, malted wheat, and locally gathered honey. French Farmhouse yeast brings aromas of spice and earth. The body is light with complex flavors and a dry refreshing finish. 6.75%alc/vol 25 IBU’s

BuckeyeBoy (5633) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 28, 2015
750ml bottle pours out a hazy golden topped with a bubbly head. When this was fresh it was more saison forward as time has passed and Brett took over. It is now more wild and sour. Nose is Brett tartness citrus lemon wood and perfume. Taste is more of the brett tartness citrus and wood. I like it more now then went it was fresh. I love how time and bugs change beer.

Reynolds314 (3269) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Something may be off with this bottle. Aroma is lemon pledge chemicals possibly acetone or some such thing but when mixed with the tart lemony flavors comes off really odd. Acrid and hard to drink but it smells ok.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2014
Bottle: Milky looking, orange & burnt golden body with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of damp hay, tart lemons, lots of yogurt & some mild lacto notes. Mineral flavor with lots of spicy yeast, farmhouse dampness, lacto yeast, tart lemon, light apple, & some strange funky spices in the finish. Semi-creamy body that could use a little more carbonation.

Salmoniform (1272) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Hazy golden hue with fizzy white head. Aroma is straw, honey, lemon, peppercorn, earthy, slight funk. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a nice peppery astringentness in the following and a clean finish. Overall this is an enjoyable brew.

slowrunner77 (9600) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 28, 2014
"Definitely more wild than saison. Saision might be what this started as, but it’s got all kinds of cantillon cheesy funky sourness going on. Light in body, but not aroma or flavor. First foray into Block 15...hope it won’t be the last.
