Aroma was light, slight hop and spicy yeastyness. Color was pale yellow, clear. Flavor was hopped and sharp, accompanied by light carbonation, but mellows nicely. Does finish with a little bitter hoppiness. Very fun mix of hopped farmhouse pale beer. Had on tap at breckenridge ballpark pub on 7/21/12.

I like it. Have not tried many farmhouse/saison ales to compare to but overall a pretty good beer.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a heavy coating of white head. The retention is excellent. Aroma is a sweat yeast, some spice, and a very mild lemon scent. Taste is spicy, mild citrus, and some sourness. Crisp with a dry finish.

On tap at Max’s in Baltimore. Hazy muddy yellow pour with a white head. aroma is spicy yeast and some good citrus hop notes. Flavor is spicy, citrusy and pretty clean. Mouthfeel is a bit watery and there were some interesting odd flavors in there. Good beer.

Poured out of bottle into a wide flute beer glass. Lots of bubbles on the initial pour, quickly dissipating head with just the edge of the glass graced by the lace. Bright orange color, opaque.
Smell: Floral hops and citrus.. mostly grapefruit. Pleasant and mellow.
Taste: No real flavors coming through, though still very nice... maybe a little orange. The bitterness coming into play at the end, which is good.
Soft texture, not quite creamy though.
While not a powerhouse, it is very nice to drink. For me it fits both a summer and winter drink. It’s simple taste makes it refreshing for hot days, but the softness also makes it appealing to a cold night in front of the fireplace.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy yellow/orange appearance. Aroma is of belgium yeast/fruit including banana. Flavor is exactly what a saison should be. Nice and fruity with some barnyard funk. Bitterness allows the malt characters to shine. Very well balanced. Finishes dry.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2012 Pours hazy amber with a nice thick frothy white head. Aroma and flavour: amazing! Strong notes of citrus, along with tropical fruits (mango), belgian yeast, and maybe slight spices. Very refrshing beer, highly drinkable. A saison can hardly get any better than this one!
