Draught. Golden pour with thin white head. Had that funky aroma of a good Saison. Refreshing, and low enough in alcohol to be a session beer. Worth trying.

Bought online from Bring On The Beer. There is no sign of any bottling date. Bottle conditioned. A- it pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a nice 1 finger head of foam. I see some great lacing. S- aromas of spice, flowery hops, yeast, earthy malt hit my nose buds. T- first sip in and mmm. Spicy with some coriander and light clove, fruity by way of lemon and banana, hoppy bitterness thanks to those great Hallertauer hops, earthy somewhat grainy malt, and yeasty! Very dry finish. Delicious rendition of a Saison/Farmhouse Ale. M- the front end seems light bodied but by the time I get to the swallow, it feels fuller than that. Nice level of carbonation. O- colour me impressed with Urban Farmhouse. A 5.3% abv powerhouse of flavours that is truly refreshing.

On draft. A nice saison yellow color with a wonderful white head. Banana notes. A wonderful drinkable light on the funky side saison.

Sweet and tart spar in the nose with plenty of pear and apple fruity notes and some herbal and peppery notes. Lightly hazy golden body is topped by a generous and lasting, fine-bubbled, white head that recedes slowly to cover with plenty of lace. Flavour offers everything the aroma suggests. Starts off sweet, becomes tart and the hops bring the bitterness to back it all up. Peppery, herbal, spicy flavours linger slowly in the long finish. Pint glass. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle purchased at Brewery Creek in May 2013.

This pours a pale yellow-gold color with a big fluffy white head that laced well. The aroma shows yeast, straw, fresh-cut grass, and some citrusy esters. Crisp and refreshing going down with some fruity sweetness to go with light herbs, earthy notes, yeast, and straw flavors. Light pepper notes mingle in the background. There’s a soft tart character to the fruitiness; that of mild cider or lemon. Tasty, clean stuff. It’s simple but that’s not necessarily a bad thing with a Farmhouse brew. I really enjoyed this one.

Bottle. Colour... Cloudy light yellow with a pillowy head. Nose... Redolent of freshly sliced apples as well as pears and quince. Palate... Delightfully spritzy with yeasty notes and a melange of tropical fruits and apple compote. A very crisp and slightly dry beer that’ll be a dandy to stock up for warm summer days!
