The Farmhouse Ale has a golden appearance with substantial head. The aroma is very floral. As I sip, I also taste the malt. Thereís a balanced sourness to this beer, and the palate is pleasant. Itís a very good beer!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Best before August of 2013.
Appearance: The body is a clear gold with a tall and dense white head that has excellent retention. The head settles into a thin coating with a thin but creamy ring.
Aroma: The aroma is of sweet orange with hints of sweet malts and a doughy peppery dryness. Very nice.
Taste: Hints of orange and grapefruit are noted on the intro that run throughout over a slightly watery body, hints of peppery spice are noted by the finish, but the malts are a bit shy providing only hints of sweetness.
Palate: Medium bodied, kind of a watery feel, with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This is a great saison, though I donít love it. The flavor is a bit thin at times, with hints of great. This is nearing the end of itís life cycle though, I wonder if itís better fresh.

Amazing brew! In the series that includes the Saison Brett and the Sixth Glass this fits most excellently! Itís like a great story like Star Wars Episodes 4 and 5! It has a foamy head, yet delicate. Malty notes with a bit of a herby swing to it. But not overpowering. The washdown is so smooth. Each glass brings you to itís creators vision. A masterpiece! Sublime. Understated. Complex. One of the yearís best brews!

Outstanding fruity aroma draws you in to the golden pour w/ a white head that leaves some lacing. The taste isnít quite as good as the smell. Itís very clean & refreshing. Actually pretty darn good for the style!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light golden and slightly cloudy. Large fluffy white head. Aroma has something that reminds me of a saison, banana esters and some funky fruityness. Taste is mild malty with loads of fruity yeast-funk. Semi-dry finish, medium body and medium-high carbonation.
