3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Sugar Maple, Milwaukee 23/viii/13. Belgian farmhouse funk & IPA hop freshness do mix, but not when the farmyard funk feels injected like a chemical adjunct. Dry, yeast astringent. Bit unnecessary. I prefer to see farmyard/IPA crossovers approached from other side of the equasion (De la Senne, Blaugies/Hill Farmstead coop), where quality US hops can be imported and injected into fully farmhouse yeasts given enough old world time.

(bottle - 22 oz) Slightly hazy gold pour with a thin white head. Yeasty and spicy aroma with a very light funk quality to it. Some very light hops in both the nose and the flavor at the start. The malts take over and leave a slightly spicy aftertaste. More spice than hops. Unusual and good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared bomber, pour to shaker. Slightly hazy, dark gold; medium head. Heavy lace. The brewer’s claim of "spicy, tart farmhouse funk" describes it well. Hoppy like a mild IPA.

3.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Great beer. Rich golden color, nice head. Faint nose. Perfect balance of farmhouse yeast and hops. Goes great with anything, and in bottle, seems fantastically cheap wherever I find it.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a a cold bottle. Clear, carbonated light amber color, large off-white frothy head. Bold spice and cinnamon aroma. Medium body slick texture with average carbonation, moderate sweetness with a spicy, tangy wild yeast flavor with a mild bitter finish..

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Great clean aroma. Enormous head that quickly begins looking like soap suds. Slightly cloudy but nice golden color. Not bitter, but tart, easy going down. Right amount of carbonation. If this is considered an IPA, it’s my favorite... probably because it doesn’t taste like an IPA.

Pours a pale, cloudy orange. Aroma is that grassy peppery saison with some citrus in there. Taste is wonderful. New Holland did the right thing here, didn’t overpower us with hops, giving the beer very solid hop flavor and bitterness, but not too much. This raises the typical bland and mild saison (in my experience) to a new level. Excellent brew.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not a bad spring or summer brew (depending on how hot your summers are...). Light & crisp citrus zest with a nice floral overtone that lasts while complimenting the bitters in the aftertaste.
