Sporting shades of grassy lemon in both aroma and flavor with earthy Belgian yeast tones and just a touch of lactic tartness, our Rusted Plow Farmhouse Saison uses local Alamance County honey to fine tune the body of the beer and dry out the finish for a refreshing take on the style. We use additions during the boil of Sterling hops, and then dry-hop with Sorachi Ace.

On tap at Salud pours a clear gold with a ring of white head. Nose has grass, green apple, green grape, a little nail polish, some buttery oak. Flavor follows, astringent with wood, green apple, mild spice, lemon tea. Tart and lightly tannic finish.

Soft pal golden pour with two fingers of off white head. Nose is earthy and herbal with notes of cooked peaches, cedar wood, and spice/dill. Very sharp and woody in the flavor. Lots of earthy/herbal and some floral notes and overripe lemon in the flavor. The ester profile and Sorachi Ace dont mesh well to me. Dry.

Clear light gold with a minimal white head. Complex aroma. Theres some doughnut shop here, Dough, powdered sugar, vanilla, something spicy, minty maybe. The flavor is fruity, with some tartness for balance. Then a dry, peppery finish. Lively carbonation adds a light palate.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2016 750mL bottle from THE turdferguson, shared on 3/26/16.
Great pour, with a very minimally hazy copper-blonde body sporting a large white head with moderate retention.
After having drunk roughly one billion beers, Im hard pressed to think of too many where the honey actually improved the beer. Honeys an odd thing in beer. While it sounds really fun and interesting on paper, in practice its not that far off from just dumping a bunch of table sugar in to primary. It adds no body and creates lots of weird phenols ranging from plastics to powdered sugar and other weird things. Here, we get some cool mint notes (not that clearly mint, but something along those lines) with other tropical and peppery notes. Very saison-like for sure, with very light caramel and bits of dough and bread. Sorachi ace adds a lemony-merengue-like character and complements the floral and herbal notes of the yeast.
The flavor is quite comforting with honey-vanilla and bread dough followed by plentiful pepperiness. Love the low abv and the hops keep it vibrant, but I do get a bit of weird, unwanted off-notes from the honey, as Adam points out as well. Still, a very nicely done beer and not Americanized. Tart, dry and moderately hoppy with fine carbonation and no alcohol noted.

750ML, very hazy light orange, 2 finger head, sticky legs. Smells fantastic. Loads of spicy, lovely tropical aromas. Whoa, yeah...Im really into this one. actually there is some cheap sour candy finish but theres something off here but truthfully, theres enough juicy bitterness and lemon to make this a winner.

jbruner (4446) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 18, 2016
Pours a hazy golden yellow from the bomber with bubbly white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of musty fruit, tea, and a hint of oxidation. Taste is super fruity, nice stone fruit notes, hint of funky tartness. Really solid, maybe a bit old, but solid.

750 ml bottle to snifter. Looks good; a cloudy bright apricot with white head. Smells juicy hop-forward alongside nicely balanced notes of brett and oak. Tastes like it smells with a pleasantly citric and juicy medium-bodied mouthfeel. A touch of sourdough on the tongue in the middle as well. Good stuff!
