Poured from the bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a clear gold-straw color with a large, foamy white head with good retention, and average cling and lacing. Its aroma featured a blend of floral and citrus hops scents along with straw, some spice, and a blend of yeast. The taste was fairly fruity and sweet with a slight tart yeast-straw affect for a bit of bitterness. It was a pretty well carbonated beer with a lighter body and a dry finish.

Pours a hazy yellow with a lingering film and some lace. Nose is phenolic and largely dominated by spices and few esters. Taste is strong with spices and phenolics. Some banana character and coriander. Flavor is a bit in your face but not bad. spritzy carbonated feel and light bodied. Medium to short duration.

Bottle. 25.4 oz. Split with James and Toney. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow-gold with a nice fluffy white head. Aroma of banana, clove, yeast, lavender, and grapefruit. Very silky, smooth palate. Medium bodied, with a nice, clean, refreshing finish. Decent saison.

22oz bottle. Poured in a Smokestack Chalice (v2) right out of the beer fridge. Hazy golden color with a foamy white head that drops down after a minute or so. Carbonation evident. Aroma is yeasty at first with some light citrus and floral notes hiding in the back. The aroma, overall, is somewhat muted, possibly due to the low temp, thankfully this is a large format bottle so I will have it at many different temps. Very thick bodied at first, I would imagine the proteins and carbonation help with that. The finish is more balanced, for the style, than I would prefer, but it is not alarmingly so. There is a lingering, pleasant bitterness at the end as well as a bit of tartness, these two things go a long way in making this a fairly drinkable beer. The tang at the very end seems to be lactic acid, which I enjoy. The flavor is yeast and vanilla, with a little bit of fruit, both topical and citrus, as well as a touch of husky grain. The overall flavor and aroma are laid back, but with overall pleasant flavors. I think a drier finish would improve the beer, although this has more mass appeal for those making their initial foray into this style.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2015 Bottle. Hazy yellow with a small white head that lasts in a ring. Aromas of spice, wheat, lemon, yeast and light earthy notes. Taste is sweet citrus, lemon, spices, and bread. Light to medium bodied, smooth with a dry end. Lingering spice and bread.

another nice one from great divide, someone said it was more like a white than a farmhouse and i couldnt agree more. the first sip was so much like an alagash white that i had to take another look at the label and see if i read it wrong. delicious, and light with an incredibly dry aftertaste. nice spring ale, wouldnt mind if it was a tad less abv, a little too strong to enjoy more than a few at a time.

will try this one again; didnt get as much aroma as others - faint funk and tart fruit. straw pour. Taste is light with banana and apple/pear tartness. well balanced though. interesting brew.

On tap at the barely open "Roof at Park South" in NYC. Light cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is wheat, lemon, faint smoke, yeast, spices. Ditto for flavor, lightish to med mouthfeel.. crisp finish. Not my favorite take on the style
