2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Tap) astringent and funky. But it’s still pretty refreshing even though I don’t like it much.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Semi-clear golden body with bubble streams rising all around, leading up to a huge, volatile, chunky eggshell cap. Aroma packed with light florals, faint toffee, characteristic Belgian yeast, bread, a hint of spices that are hard to discern (might just be from the yeast), hay, & a moderate farmhouse twinge. Zesty, grassy flavor with a nice bite of mildly bitter flower stems & leaves. More dry hay, leading way to that farmhouse dryness in the finish. Pale malts abound, not getting the mild toffee I was picking up on the nose. Bread, yeast, & earthy leaves in the finish. Dry, thin, effervescent body. A nice saison.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Love this one. Hazy golden-yellow with a smaller foamy white head. Aroma is sour, slight pepper, dry grains, lemon. Flavor is great, lemons, sourness, slight pepper, sweet fruit notesin the middle. Palate is medium, with average carbonation and loads of heat. Awesome.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellowish color with a fairly large white head on there. Nose has some great floral and fresh elements, with a great barnyard funk to it. Taste is light and fresh, with some sourness coming through to really freshen it up.

"Hmmm, and herbal, tart wheat beer. Interesting. What stood out a little here was actually the body, though it was solid all around. Not sure about the hefty bottle price, but nice on tap."

I liked it fine. Flavorful four percenter. Got btl on sale for cheap so not sure of age but this was very fine. Super carbed. Some tart. A little vague

Hazy blonde, aroma is a touch yeasty w pale malt signature. Light bodied, refreshing with an unbuttered popcorn note. This is the refreshing farmer’s saison.
