It’s a excellent summer time drinkable ale. Has a excellent color and aroma. A little hint of hops in each taste.

An excellent, full-bodied but session summer ale. Unfiltered and blonde in appearance, with a lively head, this ale gives mild citrus overtones and a sweet-then-sour attack then dissolves into ’wheaty goodness.’ The close is a nice, clean finish - this is my favorite summer ale, beautiful on tap!

By far one of the best summer ales out there. If you like a clean, refreshing finish from a florally hopped beer this is the pick of the litter. Best if enjoyed on draught. Temperature and pressure really affect head. I've enjoyed this beer for several years now. I've always felt it beats out the other commercially produced summer brews. This is my favorite FF with their winter Grand Cru a close second.

If you can try this cask-conditioned, don’t miss it. Tasted very fresh, soft, and clean. Soft floral flavors were indicate of plenty of hops. Hop aftertaste lingered. Extremely drinkable. Light cloudy yellow color.

A good summer ale. Ssm Adams makes a good one, this one, isn’t as good as it, but It is good indeed still. Great for, take a guess...a summers day or night.

12 ounce bottle - $1.79 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Appearance: Pours a hazy, straw-hued body with a relatively airy, white head. Smattering of lace spray on the descent. Smell: Lightly grainy, bready accented wheat and pale malts encapsulating notes of sourish citrus, spice, clover honey, and zesty hops. Taste: Pale malted barley and malted wheat, incorporating a slight tang and joining a honeyish sweetness. Bready, biscuity elements to it. Floral, spicy hops with a sufficient bitterness present. Small splash of lemonade. Light touches of unripe bananas and cloves. Fast flourish of slight sourness. The sweetness darts back in and out as you work through the bottle. Creamyish yet crisp on the drying finish with light hints of citrus and earthy spice. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation. Slight creaminess. Overall: I’ll be honest, and maybe it’s my own fault, but I purchased this assuming I was getting into a saison. The word "farmhouse" in the title is generally appealing, the word "summer" on the other hand... I’ve heard saison yeast can be tricky to handle, but I’m somewhat surprised they just copped out with just a standard English ale yeast. At least they did go for a sour mash. So the beer is a tasty blonde, yes, even a very fine "summery" beer, but I’d a bit happier if they dropped the word "farmhouse" from the label.
