A dry saison is my desert Island beer so I’m really partial to this one. Bottle pour, golden in color. Citrus, earthy aroma. Dry, crisp, high carbonation. Absolutely delicious! yjmr (14) - seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2016
Nice fruity nose, light enough wheaty, yeasty, and lemony refreshing flavor. Finishes dry with a little spice. A great (and very reasonable) saison. troopie (2349) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAR 23, 2011
Draught. Golden pour with thin white head. Had that funky aroma of a good Saison. Refreshing, and low enough in alcohol to be a session beer. Worth trying. Bill Becker (1064) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Bought online from Bring On The Beer. There is no sign of any bottling date. Bottle conditioned.
A- it pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a nice 1 finger head of foam. I see some great lacing.
S- aromas of spice, flowery hops, yeast, earthy malt hit my nose buds.
T- first sip in and mmm. Spicy with some coriander and light clove, fruity by way of lemon and banana, hoppy bitterness thanks to those great Hallertauer hops, earthy somewhat grainy malt, and yeasty! Very dry finish. Delicious rendition of a Saison/Farmhouse Ale.
M- the front end seems light bodied but by the time I get to the swallow, it feels fuller than that. Nice level of carbonation.
O- colour me impressed with Urban Farmhouse. A 5.3% abv powerhouse of flavours that is truly refreshing. Wombata (625) - Kobe, JAPAN - SEP 8, 2014
Aroma: Floral, lemon, grain, bitter hop, light funk (almost like a Pilsner).
Flavor: Floral, grain, gentle lemon, white grapefruit, straw/hay, light white pepper. Cleaning, lingering bitterness.

Bottle to glass at BCS. Hazy golden straw color with a huge pillowy white head. Big saison yeast nose with aromas of pear, banana, clove, cinnamon, orange and lemon zest. Taste is more of the same. Lovely carbonation and light body. Super refreshing. Taste is more of the same with a light peppery finish. Wonderful! NachlamSie (3504) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 16, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2017 Big bottle from Mile High. This beer has a barely hazy gold body with a gigantic, pillowy white head. It sure looks like a real Belgian beer. Incredible funky, peppery, fruity, barnyard aroma wafts from the tulip glass. A kiss of pilsner malt rounds out things with a light, spicy hoppiness. The mouthfeel is smooth and spritzy. Excellent yeast character continues in the flavor with suggestions of pineapple, pepper, and hay. A semi-sweet malt body gives impressions of cracker, but dries out quickly. This is an expert saison that goes beyond just your average American take on the style. Everything from the mouthfeel to the nuances in the yeast character clearly shows attention to detail. hbmason (1086) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - OCT 9, 2011
On draft. A nice saison yellow color with a wonderful white head. Banana notes. A wonderful drinkable light on the funky side saison. tiggmtl (4544) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2013
Sweet and tart spar in the nose with plenty of pear and apple fruity notes and some herbal and peppery notes. Lightly hazy golden body is topped by a generous and lasting, fine-bubbled, white head that recedes slowly to cover with plenty of lace. Flavour offers everything the aroma suggests. Starts off sweet, becomes tart and the hops bring the bitterness to back it all up. Peppery, herbal, spicy flavours linger slowly in the long finish. Pint glass. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle purchased at Brewery Creek in May 2013. changeup45 (1731) - Lake Mary, Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2013
This pours a pale yellow-gold color with a big fluffy white head that laced well. The aroma shows yeast, straw, fresh-cut grass, and some citrusy esters. Crisp and refreshing going down with some fruity sweetness to go with light herbs, earthy notes, yeast, and straw flavors. Light pepper notes mingle in the background. There’s a soft tart character to the fruitiness; that of mild cider or lemon. Tasty, clean stuff. It’s simple but that’s not necessarily a bad thing with a Farmhouse brew. I really enjoyed this one.
