Quevillon (2809) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 20, 2016
750 ml bottle drank (with Lady Susan) at Saint-Graal in Sainte-Thérèse (Québec) on May 20, 2016. Not so clear gold, small head. Sweet aroma of hoppy spelt, a bit of spiciness. Crisp hoppy cereal taste, light sweet spiciness, light bitterness. You can’t go wrong with a collaboration with HF!

davidezdonz (225) - , HONG KONG - MAY 13, 2016
A 750ml bottle with a best before end year of 2018 and poured into a Cantillon Iris ballon glass. It poured a very nice clear golden colour with a two finger white head that had pretty good retention and left nice lacing. Aromas of farmhouse mustiness, straw, hay, red apple, honey, lemon zest and a hint of banana esters. Tastes of cereal grains, honey, herbal, grassy, zesty lemon with a hint of peach and peppery spice. Dry, light bodied with high lively prickly carbonation. Overall a solid saison from Blaugies and Hill Farmstead.

RasmusOtt (2080) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2016
Bottle. Pours hazy dark yellow with a white head. Aroma is dry and funky with notes of basement, pear, grain, sweet esters and floral notes. Clean and nice old school saison aroma. The taste has a more hoppy profile with some dry brett, funky basement, orange, citrus and sweet esters as well. Refreshing to drink in the sun which I did.
