This farmhouse ale poured a huge frothy white head on a light golden ale. Biscuity base with an Earthy herbal spiced yeast flavor. I like a sweeter spice to Saisons personally. Easy drinking session saison.

12 ounce pour - $6.00 at Argosy in Atlanta, Georgia.

Appearance: Displays an orange-golden body, well-hazed, with a lasting, white, film-producing head.

Smell: Soft, creamy wheat edged with a bit of rustic graininess. Coriander and spice. Moderately citrusy.

Taste: An initial impression of crisped wheat, light grains and hay moistened with sugar water. A little orange rind, a bit of punchy lemon juice. Coriander and pepperesque spiciness alongside a medium-low bitterness. Finishes sufficiently dry and spicy with adequate carbonation to move things along.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Fairly decent, it’s low ABV and relatively easy drinking qualities were its best attributes.

sebletitje (6859) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 24, 2014
Bouteille 335ml. No BB. Dorée claire, devant trouble sur la fin, col blanc très effervescent et disparaissant vite. Arôme est rustique sur des impressions belges, le tout offrant u bouquet houblonné noble avec une petite pointe poivrée qui perce en rétro. Palais est léger, sur une effervescence haute, impression de malt pils, léger citronné et agrumes, houblons nobles, fleuri. Grains frais avec une petite pointe épicée de poivre noir qui arrive en toute fin de bouche. Reste dans un style belge avec un petit plus qui rend cette bière complexe et facile à déguster.

HonusWagner (1534) - Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Satisfying though not spectacular farmhouse beer in the rustic style with a mostly grainy flavor and some nice light citrus tartness, hints of pepper in the midpalate. Very solid, but not going to push out Hennepin at a higher price point.

rondphoto (2200) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - NOV 20, 2014
bottle at Wino’s Depot / Bowling Green KY --- Cloudy light amber with a smooth white head cover, broken sheets of lace. Taste is malt and wheat with a little sour mixed in that explodes with clean hops on the swallow, followed by a little malt re-emerging in a long cleansing finish. For sure a good food beer, but just as satisfying by itself. Recommended.

MartinT (8024) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Banana esters, herbal hops and cereals whirl about in this fizzy and rustic brew.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the cloudy beige.
-The flavor profile is a tad too murky for my tastes.
-Balancing hop bitterness is quite enjoyable.
-The dryness increases drinkability.

Bottle.
