Farmhouse Summer Ale

Thanks go out to Jim for the chance to crack this one. 12 oz bottle.
Mmmmm, strange. An alarming, crystal clear pour with a macro like color and a carbonation to match. Looks “ultra” filtered!
Nose and tastes reveal soft malts and some grainy sweetness. This is categorized as a Saison?? It looks like (and has the mouthfeel) of a macro lager. It does have a nose and taste that gives more than that, but not a huge amount more and the experience is subtle to say the least. Some light, estery fruits and perhaps a touch of a grassy organic nature, but if you were expecting a typical Saison (American OR Belgian), forget it!
Odd, weird, and I’m not at all sure what is going on here. I’m a bit clueless with this beer. I like the ABV and the drinkability though.
