3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Canned at some point before getting to my face.
Pours a hazy lemon with a solid sheet of fine white foam. Smells musty, dusty, farmy, some yeast, some grain, some milky character. I like the nose, has the unbound notes I find promising in a beer such as this. Flavor is yeasty, a little much so. Still meanders with some farm, some hay, some manure and clay, but a little too much of the yeast is a bit cloying. Medium on full bodied with a low carb and a semi dry finish. Nice enough. I like where they’re headed with this.

Golden straw blonde with airy, foamy, thick top. Barnyard funky nose, thick yeastiness with spritzes of clove and a lick of tartness. Tart, farmhousey body, with a chalky undercurrent of clove and sweet tarts. This beer is a moving target, aromas and tastes sway from sip to sip, which keeps you engaged.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Pours a cloudy yellow gold body with a small frothy white head that faded pretty quickly to a thin wispy film. The nose is pretty decent, some earthy wheat and a nice yeastiness throughout. A little bit of perfumy hoppiness. Some lighter fruity ester notes. The flavor is decent as well, not a whole lot of character, but no flaws at all. Some doughy malt and wheat notes. I do like the light yeastiness in here. Finishes with a very light floral hop note. Lighter bodied with a fairly soft texture and a bit of cling on the finish. Not bad, especially considering their other beers.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500mL can, pours a completely clear pale yellow with a huge foamy white head. Nose is fairly subtle, with light notes of yeast, banana, clove and some citrus fruit. Flavour brings out grassy hops, some citrus, a little clove and of course, Belgian yeast. Fairly yeasty, grassy and citrusy - certainly not a traditional farmhouse-style ale / saison by any means. Nevertheless, light, refreshing and highly drinkable. Solid canned saison.

Thanks, Nick, for supplying the BBQ beer. Clear straw yellow, and bubbly cap that falls quick. Aroma of metallic yeast, a touch of funk, lemon, citrus rind. Taste is similar. Mostly citrus and yeast. Flat tasting and some muted funk. Quite effervescent. Good hot summer day beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can @ Hilliard’s. Pours slightly cloudy golden yellow with medium white head. Aroma is a bit of pale malt and big earthy floral spice notes. Taste is light pale malt with a nice dry spicy finish. Abv is deceptive, this tastes nowhere near 6.6%. Still quite drinkable. Perfect out of a tallboy can. This is one of my warm weather standbys.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Perhaps I'm tainted from drinking Splinter Gold all night, but this beer is not too shabby. Pours a golden yellow with a thick lingering head. Very faint smell, barely detectable, slight fruit smell. Taste akin to an old La Fin Du Monde. Slightly above mediocre. Definitely better than most canned slop
