An unbelievable saison! Damn! The pour is a clear golden, yellow with an incredible aroma of honey, straw, yeast, and floral, fruity hops. Very refreshing and vibrant. Fruity, honey, straw, very crisp and delicious. Some funk and tartness. Another killer beer from HF!

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2015 My second HF saison, and I continue to be unimpressed. Yes, it’s clean and nice and inoffensive, but man does this bore the hell out if me. Tastes like brett, super dry, very little flavor otherwise from the malts. Very light bodied almost to the point if watery. It’s just fine and inoffensive, but I’ve yet to find much more overrated than this. Hand me a Tank 7 off the shelf, please.

Purchased bottle at brewery. Pours with frothy head that quickly dissipates. Golden-yellowish color. Lemony, grassy aroma. Certainly has a sour tastw one would expect with a saison but with a honey-sweet finish. Lightly carbonated and crisp on the tongue. Enjoyable.

Bottle cheers to Rob. The thing that stands out to me in this is the huge amount of bitter lemon. It is so zesty and vibrant with this amazing linear sourness throughout but that lemon note just tops it off. Stunning beer

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(750ml bottle @ Mikkeller Bar Viktoriagade, shared with my girlfriend Jan 8 2014) Ppours a light hazy straw gold with a huge white bubbly head, gusher. Holds a ring and leaves lace. Aroma is complex funky saison, honey and florals prominent and gorgeous. Sourish citrus flesh, wheat malt, fresh grass, soft barnyard, touch of fresh Parmesan. Overall impression is sweet tart. Palate surprisingly sour and orange flesh driven. Yeasty farmhouse funk and grass abundant. Bit of floral honey. Lemongrass. Unripe pear. The sourness fades promptly into dry bitterness. Cut wildflowers, leafy, hay, in the finish along with a citrus tart acidity, pomelo bitterness. Fairly light crisp body with high but soft carb. Really nice stuff indeed, it’s almost delicate and yet there is a lot of character to it that you can explore.
