Glowing yellow liquid topped by a nice and white bubbly head. Aromas of barnyard and citrus. Refreshing acidity with more lemon and hay in the taste. Yeasty like any good saison, it was plenty refreshing and good.

Huge thanks to Jcwatts for bringing this to Dmac’s. Pours out a clear, light golden color with a small white head. Aroma is of light grains, fruity esters, light hops and a good dose of some funky tartness. Taste is complex, lemon zest, oak, grainy notes, light fruit and a good lightly funky tartness going on throughout. Once again, this is a really tasty beer, huge thanks John.

Bottle shared by starrdogg. Thanks Matt.
Served along side Hill Farmstead Art, Flora, Civil Disobedience, and McKenzie Irma Extra.
The beer is hazy and yellow hued with a thick, white head that leaves ample lacing on the snifter. The aroma brings floral, citrus, malt, yeast. The flavor is decent. Overly yeasty, with some fruit notes, perhaps apricots. The feel is very dry, with lingering yeast. Overall, a decent saison that could stand a few improvements.

Bottle shared by jcwattsruger, thanks John. Poured a golden straw body, completely opaque when the yeast from the bottom of the bottle was poured, an average sized foamy white head leaves lots of lace all over my New Belgium tulip. Aroma is great and super complex, notes of wet flowers, yeast, lemon tartness, chardonnay, spices, band aid, dough. Medium body with soft carbonation and an almost creamy finish. Flavor of chardonnay, yeast, lemons, band aid, tartness, spices, just complex with lots going on. This is a great beer overall.

On draft at HFS Harvest and multiple bottles shared over the last month....Pours a nice golden color with a lively froth... great aromas of funky tart citrus, white pepper and barnyard yeast. On the palate its nicely balanced between doughy sour notes and bright citrus acidity. The flavors play well together in a rustic grassy farmhouse saison style that is tuned perfectly to my personal palate. Love the tartness...need more, road trip soon!
