Bottle i purchased on clearance at least. Nothing particularly "farmhouse" about this. Very light all around, minimal hops and light malt flavor that lacks any intensity and comes though as very light on the palate without much flavor.

From a 2013 bottle. Pours murky opaque copper with a fizzy white head. Tastes like toasted malt, caramel, some raisin and grapefruit, yeast, light dry spice. Smells like roasted malt, yeast, light raisin, dry toast, and light dry spice.

Bulk_Carrier (2579) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a deep dark amber colored body yielding a nice foamy very level off-white head that lasted for a good minute before gently dieing into the body. The body was too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising. Typical sediment of a saison at the bottom of my chalice. The smell had some dark fruits up front with the typical farmhouse yeast with the added hay and spices. The taste was dry with the same smells coming out and bringing in some plums and grains. The palate was about a medium with some sharpness on the tongue, sessionable. Overall, when I first had this I actually wasn’t really into saisons, but since this isn’t as bad some others I’ve had, I will say this, I’d have this one again.

JDBaker11058 (1465) - Maryland, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Appearance: clear coppery red, with two fingers of near white head. Aroma: notes of caramel, toffee, rye, pepper, and a clearly Belgian strain of yeast that imparts a good does of barnyard funk. Taste: as the aroma indicates, almost exactly. Finish: full finish, but slightly muddled. Notes: This is better than average. The Belgiany yeast against pretty traditional amber/red ale flavors made for an interesting beer.

Bamsen78 (4000) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2013
Draught @ Galaxy Hut, Arlington, VA. Pours slughtly hazy amber with small white head. Clear aroma of hops and yeast. Sweetish flavour of fruit, malt and hops. Rather rough aftertatse. OK but nothing to write home about.

Trev (1991) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Weird amber/gold colour. No head. Aroma caramel malt. Earthy yeasty. Flavour is earthy fruity, vegetal . Light malty finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
