COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
starting with a base of German wheat & pale malts this crisp slightly hazy foundation was then accented with a blend of Sterling & Citra hops providing a intricate blend of herbal grass & tangerine citrus flavors and aroma. to pull this all together and to complete the ’cleansing’ aspect of my vision i gently finished the ale off with a touch of white sage, lending a mild earthy spice character to the blend. of course let’s not forget our house saison yeast that brought all the elements together leaving a dry yet intricate finish.

Poured from bottle. Aroma smells flowery and yeasty, very much like a tripel. Pours pale to almost deep gold with thick head and great retention. Taste starts off sweet and tart like a heffweizen, then starts to mellow and then finishes bitter like a pale ale. It also leaves a spicy lingering aftertaste. I'm very pleased with the nice blend of styles and taste. Palate is thicker, you can tell there is some wheat proteins in this. Cool name, cool art, very cool beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep golden pour with white head. Nose of meaty citrus, yeast, and candy. Flavor is bright lemon citrus with lightly sweet candy, before fading quickly to bitter citrus rind and mild herbal hops. Finishes dry with ample carbonation. Really nice.

The quaint, bucolic origin story of the French farm saison I know, but the lore (or myth) behind the idea of an American farmhouse ale is something alien to me, even with my American citizenship. Still, wherever this beer come from, and however it was inspired, this is a wonderfully dry beverage for summer drinking. Much more exotic indeed, it’s not an IPA. The heavy, wet straw color hints at a rich cornucopia of grains, with a thin fizzy headed that quickly floats away, and a haziness that comes partly from a cold serving temperature. White grapes, straw and basil compose a sophisticated, dry aroma, with other botanical touches including fennel seed. And the taste is a suitable match. There’s much less white grape flavor here until somewhere near the aftertaste. Instead, the palate is focused on a wonderfully balanced blend of wheat notes, a touch of dry lemon peel or even lemon verbena, some lemon grass, more thyme, and even a touch of white pepper in the finish. As always, these styles of beers are hard for me to wrap my ahead around, but I like them. The better that medley of tastes and grains - the closer to some idealized aroma of a fresh harvest - the more enjoyable these brews get, and this counts high among their number.

Bottle. Light golden body with a frothy white head. Aroma of juniper, toasted grain, hibiscus, spice, leafy hops, herbs, coriander, sage. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter and lightly to moderately acidic. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Way too much going on in this beer in the flavor, especially with the spices, that aren’t working together. Drinkable but not especially enjoyable. The aroma was nice and the barrel-aged version a lot nicer.
