UPDATED: MAR 18, 2014 Quite possibly my new favorite saison of all time, a beer I hope to god they brew again. The lime comes through excellently in the nose and translates well into the flavors, giving the beer a clean bitterness in the midpalate which is unusual as hell. Lemon zesty, light and refreshing, just an incredibly kickass beer. I’ve changed my mind. This is THE kickass beer. 5.

Hill Farmestad tap takeover at Warpigs may 12th 2016. Unclear orange body with a small white head. Aroma of oranges, apples, funk, mild spicy. Crisp and zesty grapefruit and orange taste, mild sweetness, bretty and dry finish with lasting fresh fruit aftertaste. Pretty good stuff!

Type: 8-oz. draft Glass: Clear tulip glass From: Alpine Beer Company Pub in Alpine, Calif. Price: $8.00 Purchased: June 9, 2016 Consumed: June 9, 2016 Misc.: N/A Stopped in to pick up a gift certificate and saw Hill Farmstead on the board. Insta-purchased. After looking up some more information, I don’t think it’s actually Hill Farmstead, but Grassroots (which may just be a part of Hill Farmstead). Either way I was looking forward to trying it without even looking what the group thinkers on Beer Advocate and Untappd were saying. Poured a golden orange clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of off-white, fizzy head. Some bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Very good spotty lacing. Average retention. (Sight - 4.00) Smelled spicy up front, then got orange blossom, blood orange, hibiscus, floral aromas, lime zest, pear, citrusy notes, grassy notes and light green apple. (Smell - 4.25) Tasted even better than the nose, getting lime zest, citrus, blood orange, grass, herbal, pear, kiwi, hibiscus and hints of cinnamon spice. (Taste - 4.50) Light body. Oily texture. Lively carbonation. Long, citrusy finish. (Feel - 4.50) This one just grew on me. Really liked it, but I feel like I overrated it just a tad. (Overall - 4.25) 4.36 97 A

Thanks king hippo! Pours a hazy light orangish/yellowish color, with a fluffy white head. Beautiful looking beer in the glass. Aroma of lime, lemon zest, citrus, hay, grain and funk. Taste is a mouth puckering lemon and lime flavor, orange citrus, grapefruit, with some light grainy malts, funky tartness, and slight bitterness. Medium to light mouthful. Easily drinkable on a nice spring day. World class! Yes ma’am, may I please have another.

Fat CBC-16. En riktig bra saison sauvage med mycket funk, frisk och syrlig med citrus, vete, jäst, lite blommig. Som jag önskar att varje saison skall smaka. Riktigt gott.
