Pours a hazy straw-like golden color with huge frothy white head. Carbonation is champagne-like with lots of bubbles rapidly rising to the surface throughout the entire glass and very impressive lacing all the way down to the last sip. Aroma is fruity, spices, clove, and bubblegum. Taste is very dry with citrus, spices, and earthy hops. Long, dry bitter finish. Overall, this is a very good farmhouse ale.

A hazy yellow pour with a rocky, white head. The aroma is a nice grapefruit with slight cloves and floral hops. The light body has a slightly oily texture with lively carbonation. The taste is tart and spicy with a long, dry, bitter finish.

Tap at Euclid Bar and Kitchen in Denver. Pours a hazy blonde-orange with a lively lace of fluffy white espresso foam on top. Aromas are solid of hay and orange peel zest. Excellent spicy quality in the nose as well. Taste matches nose, if a bit cleaner. Citrus notes hold up well in the face of the farmhouse funk and high ish ABV. Excellent brew on draft.

Murky goldenrod with large slowly fading airy eggshell crown. Aroma is grassy and spicy with mild funk, yeast and a touch of citrus. Taste is grassy with sweet malt, light fruit, hay, yeast, citrus and a bit of black pepper. Sudsy and decent.

A solid and interesting beer that I would buy again. Pours a light golden yellow with a big foamy head that laces nicely. Nose and taste are of Lemon, citric hops, hay, grass, the way a hay farm smells after it rains in the fall. Dry crisp and refreshing with a touch of sweetness on the finish.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2012 Straw, grass, and citrus in the aroma. Flavor starts out with a lot of light fruit, but finishes with a nice hop bitterness and a nice mouthfeel. It’s almost like a cross between a Belgian saison and an IPA, but it works.

Bottle served in a tulip. Hazy straw in color with a medium sized fluffy white head. Decent retention and watery lace. Aroma of grapefruit, yeast, fruity esters, and spicy light hops. Mid sweet, prickly attack. Good carbonation, light body, creamy-watery texture, and a long, spicy, dry finish. Really nice saison

Pours a hazy pale yellow with a huge white head...nice lacing and retention. Aroma is fruity...grapefruit and citrus rind...and some yeasty, spicy notes...bit of straw. Flavor has significant spicy grapefruit...very fruity...somewhat boring. Mouthfeel is lively and light and the finish is dry and hoppy.

lightly hazy golden with a big white head, nice lacing, looks a little soapy... loads of hops, very very fruity aroma, has a belgian style ipa aroma, very nice aroma, quite spicy, belgian yeasty aroma... Limited carbonation, medium to medium full bodied, nice flavor, kinda hoppy, dry finish, yeasty, quite fruity in a citrus way... this comes off more as a belgian ipa than a saison to me...
