Bottle, pours bright hazy orange with a tall white head, lots of lacing. Aroma is grass, barnyard yeast, thin citrus. Flavor is grassy as hell, sweet hay, bubblegum, a few hot esters in the finish. A home run!

Pours a hazy gold with some sediment floating around. Good sized white head and nice lacing. Aroma is yeast, banana, and spices. Taste is banana peel, clove, and farmhouse funkiness. Very lively on the palate. Really enjoyed this.

Cool label. Pours a hazy light gold with a fluffy head. Aroma of hay, pepper, and scented geranium leaves with just a bit of mustiness. Flavor starts a bit sweet, with some sweet corn, sort of hits between a true Saison and a drier tripel. It is good but I just long for that classic yeasty character.

Bottle. Beautiful aroma of dough and barnyard yeast. A appearance that truly makes the mouth water with yeast floating through the beer matrix, cloudy golden color, and a white head with great lacing. Taste is superb with notes of clove, banana and grass. Kind of a lingering yeast taste on the palate though. Man oh man, this is a must drink. All hail Lă Grange!

Hazy golden brew with a good amount of fluffy white head. Nose is grain, slight farmhouse, floral hops, and earth. Taste is spicy with citrus and Belgian yeast. Another mediocre brew from Rahr.

Bottle from Tebow. Thanks, Tim! Beat the Steelers!
Pours a chunky cheddar orange with a nose of peachy lemon and straw. Notes of barn-stored cherry, strawberry, and raspberry swirl like dust in an attic. Flavor is a slightly rusty lemon and rose salad served in a musty barn on a bed of hay. A lingering floral bitterness fades slowly after each sip. Oily and memorable on the tongue. Great beer; a fine Texas take on a French style that I became very familiar with during my two months in France in ’10. The label reminds me of where I grew up north of Richmond, TX. A seventy acre field in front of my house and a seventy-five acre field behind my house; monthly mowing for hay for nearby cows and horses. Tractors, barns, and fun. Ahhhh... memories...

Bottle shared with a friend. Pours a very hazy deep amber orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of flora notes with light fruits and citrus notes as well as a hint sweet bread. Flavor starts with light fruit and flora and finishes with a slight tartness from citrus notes.
