Very nice farmhouse ale. Lemon like flavor and zest. Some earthy barnyard yeasty funk, but well done and balanced. Some Belgian yeasty flavors. Quite enjoyable.

Appearance- cloudy, straw, gold. Big bone white uber foamy head. Excellent lacing.
Smell- fruity (banana) and floral aromas dominate, followed by some grass and a little bread.
Taste- complex with quite a bit going on (earthy, malty, spicey). What stands out is the bitter aftertaste dominated by grapefruit. Awesome!
Mouthfeel- medium, crisp, outstanding balance.
Overall- excellent!!! Not to be missed. A quality quaff.
Cheers all! GuamVice (72) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2014
From tap at Boulevard tasting Room. Pours gold and very clear for a saison. Spice, bitter, malt, and alcohol are all incredibly balanced. This is a great end to a hot day.

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Stone Ruination IPA pint glass
From: Bine & Vine Bottle Shop in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $11.99 for a 4-pack
Purchased: May 28, 2014
Consumed: May 29, 2014
Misc.: Best by Aug. 14, 2014
Poured a golden, straw, semi-clear color with 4-to-5 fingers of pillowy white head. Good deal of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Good amount of foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Thick, foamy retention on the top of the glass all the way down.
Smelled a pleasant variety of notes on the nose. Got cloves, tropical notes, grape, kiwi, sour apple, sour fruit, sweet floral notes, caramel, honey, light banana bread and faint peppery spices. Pretty lovely.
Tasted not quite as good as the smell, which would be difficult anyway. First thing I noticed was the alcohol. Not as hidden as I would have thought from a Saison. Got tropical notes, kiwi, green apple, green grape, sour fruits, honey, floral notes, banana bread, caramel and unknown lingering Belgian spices.
Light body. Oily texture. Lively-to-average carbonation. Long, astringent finish.
I wavered between an overall rating of 3.75 and 4.00, but the latter got the nod. The smell was fantastic.

Aroma is fruity hops, sweet malt, peppery spice. Beautiful light golden color with some reflective haze. White head. Big fruity notes from hops lead to a strong pepper finish. Clove. High carbonation. Dry with residual impression of sweetness.

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow orange with fluffy white head. Nose is orange and belgian yeast. Taste is sweet citrus with bitter aftertaste. JonLaRue (59) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Purchased November 2013, enjoyed May 2014. Suds of beer stay for a while, to the point of annoyance if a rookie makes the pour fromcthe bottle. Base of the beer is a deep yellow that glows delightfully if back lit well. The beer presents a flavor typical of the saison variety. Straw and citrus dominate with notes of delicate leather at the end . Flavor comes and goes quickly. Leaves the mouth slightly astringent feeling. Although a good beer I am happy to be done with the 24 that I purchased I won’t likely buy again at the price vs taste. 12 fl oz bottle. flopez2s (1) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAY 16, 2014 does not count
@Dbob whatever your name is, first off your an idiot. Smokestack is the worst BBQ in KC out of all of them. I don’t care for Arthur Bryant’s or Gate’s either but obviously you have not had much BBQ in the area. OK Joe’s is superior to most of these dumps. Tank 7 is one of the best beers I have ever had. sitzds (318) - - MAY 15, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2015 On guest tap at dfh Fairfax poured into snifter. Slightly murky orange-yellow with a white head that settles to a collar. Dots and streaks of lace.
