Not sure about this one HS. Sure, nothing offensive about this spicy, sweet saison, but it just doesn’t do much for me. Pretty high ABV hidden well. An okay brew, but not a style in HS’s wheel house. Serving: multi 12oz bottle experience.

Best by December 2013, so a little past its prime according to the brewer. Pours a slightly hazy orange-golden with a fair-sized khaki head that settles to a thinner ring and leaves some soapy lace. Nose involves some spicy, tart yeast with pepper and clove, a bit of green apple, plenty of hearty dough, a bit of lemon, quite zesty and invigorating. Not incredibly sweet, a bit tart, fairly bitter. Medium bodied, very soft, a bit oily, with a quick spicy and fruity finish. Fresh, I’m sure this would pop a little more on the palate, but otherwise I’m totally fine with this. Great yeast influence on the aroma and taste.

If I had to pick a saison I’d pick this one! This is far from my favorite beer style, but as far as saisons go, this is a great one. Very fruity, but not offputtingly thick like a lot of saisons! Pirates!! !
