Super sessionable and fresh. Farmhouse ale at it’s best. Don’t miss this hidden gem of a brewery. Morey (46) - Erie, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2012
APPEARANCE: Poured pale yellow in color with really good clarity. Head is white and has a cloud-like fluffiness going on. It initially stood around two fingers tall, but has settled to just under a finger after about 8 minutes or so. You can see plenty of carbonation bubbles streaming upward in the glass. Pretty good head retention.JDBaker11058 (2427) - Maryland, USA - JUN 14, 2012
AROMA: There’s a tart lemony fragrance right away. I’m also getting wild flowers, jasmine, & honey. Very nice.
TASTE: Nice sourness up front. It’s mild for a Brett-beer, but it’s enough to let you know that it’s there. After that, I’m starting to get the various grains and malts that are used in this beer. Maybe just a touch of hop bitterness towards the middle, but it’s very mild allowing the other elegant flavors to pull through. The sour flavor creates a drying quality on the back end. Finishes tart and refreshing.
MOUTHFEEL: Medium-thin body with moderate to high carbonation.
OVERALL: A top notch Saison with just enough Brett to go with the lightness of this beer.
Morey’s Bottom Line: This beer is a must in the summer time for me. One of my favorites within the style. I could drink this til the cows come home.
Appearance: creamy, deeply hazy butterscotch, with a thick, dense, almost nitro-like off white head, with tons of effervescent carbonation and some frothy lace. Aroma: funky, with notes of lemon zest, brown rice, yeasty spices, some pepper and some cloves. Taste: some oatmeal bread with honey butter, lots of yeasty spice, orange, coriander, clove, pepper, and a healthy does of brett funk . Finish: tingly, slightly sweet and spicy, with lingering zesty fruit. Notes: I love a good funky saison, and the brett didn’t take this one too far over the edge; the funky notes were relatively intense, but restrained and balanced. Nice full palate, balanced perfectly by the spice and the carbonation. A really, really good saison. Draft at Birch & Barley.

22oz bomber split 3 ways. For the life of me I cannot remember where or when I got this bottle but I have been saving it for a little bit of time now, maybe close to a year. I wonder if that accounts for the difference between my score and the average. The beer pours with a slightly hazy golden color and a medium sized head. Aroma is dry and herbal with bitter floral aspects - to me this is all brett. Its very well done, lively and bright, loving it. Flavor is similar, a little more heft to it and a smidgen less brightness but very nice indeed. I think this is exceptionally executed and a 4.4 beer to boot. This is very similar to Beer Table Table Beer. Would love to drink this again. JStax (7307) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle shared at natifest. Pours a hazy gold with a white head of foam. The aroma has lemon zest, citrus, bread and dough. Tastes like lemon zest and bread. Very nice saison.

A nice hazy yellow color with a whitish foam. The aroma is a nice enticing fruitiness, dry musty malts, grass, herbal but not seemingly spiced. The taste is similar, apple, pear, grassy, must. A fantastic beer. beergodd1 (401) - Conneaut, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2012
Pour was a cloudy medium gold with a medium off white head. Taste was very funky and refreshing. Carbonation was the first thing that I noticed, then the Tastes of yeast, Brett, fruit, light lemon, and grain. Really easy to drink. A little thin bodied, but It’s worth it.

Pours golden, almost opaque banana yellow with a small off white head. The aroma brings a bit of pleasant funk right away and then evolves to sweet yeast notes. The flavor brings nice sweet and light funk notes with a saison yeast flavored base, pure. There is not much spice at all, just a bit of spicy malt like notes at the end.
