Bottle via and shared with oakbluff. Gold in colour with strong carbonation. Aromas are a blend of floral lime, pink peppercorn and a bit of orange. Very juicy in the mouth with some fantastic orange and lime flavor. A bit of white pepper makes its way in there to with a herbal edge on the back end. Sour and acidic, but not funky. Very thirst quenching.

Stine (1644) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Beautiful hazed apricot appearance. Blood orange, lime, papaya fruitiness in the aroma framed in the limestone and misty grass funk of HF’s house character. Heavily calcified. Tempered, tart flavor with much of the fruitiness of the nose contained somewhat; rather, pithy zests pair with crackling, rustic spice and field grass character for a whimsical, classic effect. The acid level is pleasant, buoying the lingering fruit qualities while also carrying the overall flavor toward a more detailed overall impression than is often found in an additive-focused example like this. The palate is fulsome but of course not heavy; juicy up front and semi-dry in the middle. Pulsing acidity and cheese rind in the extensive finish. Not a world-beater here, but another worthy addition to the lexicon of excellence coming from this little corner of the world.

Magnum on Christmas Day. Hazy gold with white froth. Nose is green banana, lime, light orange and grass. Creamy medium body with a sparkle. Taste is green melon, lime, dough, herbs, citrus zest and sour berries. Beautifully crisp and clean with fruity citrus hints.

dfroms (453) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle, dated May 2014. Pours cloudy straw with fluffy white head. Aroma is really nice: moderate funk and musty oak with savory preserved lemon, grapefruit peel, lime juice, grain, peach, faint honey, mild spice. Taste is sour preserved plum and grapefruit soda with lime juice, salt, mild cracker, faint hop bitterness, citrus pith and unripe fruit bitterness. Light and buoyant palate but still somewhat full. Awesome.

toxichop (424) - South Gate, California, USA - NOV 7, 2014
S: Funky barnyard funk, limes and oak. P: Hazy yellow but still a pretty clear beer with a thin white head. t: Limes and sour barnyard funk, some oak, some flowers and light spices. M: Medium body and soft carbonation. O: Great saison, that was a bit sour, had no idea this was brewed with limes, hisbiscus, and blood oranges, know that I read the description my notes make sense. Also thought this one was a bit like Anna which is just as good as this one.
