Excellent stuff. Much hoppier than the previous Farmers. Still has some great citrus and a wonderful effervescence. My least favorite of the Farmers; but not by a huge margin. An excellent summer saison. Full review: http://theunitedstatesofbeer.com/post/52572015126/

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy honey pour with a significant ivory foam. Really odd beer. Bright lemongrass, earthy, grapefruit pith, black pepper, funky nose. Invited me in. There is a weird perfume quality accompanied by more spice than is warranted. Alcohol, cologne, acetate. Subtle but through a everything else off...just enough to be distracting. Had high hopes but this one falls flat.

There is a lot going on here. Nich grape and citrus flavored hops accent a robust saison backdrop that has a bit of extra sweetness but still very spicy and nice.

Tap @ CBC 2013. The pour’s deep gold with a tiny head. The nose is light soap, some lemon, apples, mild grapefruit citrus, orange. The taste is soapy, a bit of herbal funk, earthy farmhouse yeast. Mild bretty tang. Medium body, soft carbonation. Good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour is a cloudy gold color with a fluffy white head. Nose is very fruity and spicy, peppercorns, bright tropical fruits, grassy funky smell and clove. Lots of the spice on the taste too, banana, mango, yeasty esters, wet grass, and a nice saison funk. Medium to light bodied, great beer for the summer.
