12 oz bottle courtesy of secret santa. Thanks. Pours a hazy gold color with a small white head that has fair retention. The aroma was musty with belgian yeasts, melons and soap. The flavor, like the aroma, features musty melons saison yeast, soap and bread. The palate is light and the carbonation is lively. The finish is long and dry. Overall: Decent saison, very tasty.
12 oz bottle from Growlers to Go, Short Pump, VA the ale poured a clear gold color with a small white head and limited lacing. The aroma of pale malts and mild citrus. The farmhouse ales to me are all on the mild side of hopiness. The saison ale is easy to drink with a light body and average carbonation. Not much bitterness in the aftertaste. Overall easy to drink but very tame. Evolutionary (526) - Ohio, USA - NOV 4, 2017

Total saison, well-rounded, with a bit of everything: citrus, floral, grassy, tropical, and spice. Light palate, balanced by light malts, and a flavorful intensity. Muggus69 (2726) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2017
355mL bottle from Carwyn Cellars, Melbourne. Can't decipher bottle stamp
Pours a big pillowy head atop a hazy pale straw body.
Pleasant aroma - grainy malt, hay, white pepper, dry meadow, floral hops adding a touch of citrus blossom & dried herbal spice.
Carbonation is lively yet soft lending a creaminess & texture to an otherwise dry, lean, well-attenuated body.
Flavour is quite delicate - citrus, cereal, hay, spice, slightest hint of acidity, has a sort of creaminess about it too.
Very well made, easy, elegant in its own sort of way.

(Keg at Sori Taproom, 20171005) The beer poured pale golden and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, perfume and earth. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, earth, spiciness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity, tart and bitter. A brew with bit unpleasant aroma due perfume but nice taste.

Bottled. A hazy yellow coloured beer with a white head. Aroma and flavour of yeast, citrus, funk, fruit, spice, grass and barnyard. Maris (1587) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - SEP 18, 2017
From a 355ml bottle on 18/9/2017. Pours a hazy light golden with a small head.The nose is yeasty, tart and a touch spicy. The flavours are relatively subdued but well integrated, with bread, dough, citrus fruit (lemon, lime) and yeast in the mix. Features a modest, slightly spicy bitterness. Medium bodied with prickly carbonation. Saisons are generally not my thing, but this is quite tasty. geolgau (468) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - SEP 11, 2017
Looks juicy in the glass, with fresh notes of grass, lemon and lime zest. Some pears also. Taste is crisp and lemony, a bit sweet with notes of light grassy hops, effervescent vitamins and farmhouse barnyard. Not too complicated, but delivers the freshness that I look for in a saison.
