4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home poured into my HF wine glass. Appearance is golden orange with a frothy white, long-lasting head and great lacing. Funk, light urine, honey, band-aid, rubber, light spice, straw, grass, biscuit, and citrus in the aroma. Nice! Taste is tart lemon peel, zest, tangy fruit peel, biscuit, bread, grass, white pepper, and clove with am lightly spicy/tart finish. Creamy mouthfeel with high carbonation. Funky, fruity, refreshing, and satisfying. Another great brew from Shaun. You really can’t go wrong with any beer from Hill Farmstead. Awesome!

Magnum poured by Adam, thanks man! 04/2014 batch. Nice clarity .. Mildly hazy, good carbonation, lasting head. Aroma is mild wine barrel, wheat, soft oak, maybe lemongrass.
Flavor is about as well integrate as you can get for a barrel aged saison. Wheat and grain base with a great soft oak with hints of tannins. Very delicate. Wow... What else can I really say here? Bad ass!

This poured a semi hazy orange with a white head. Aroma was incredibly musty and dusty, almost to the point of moldy, and minerally. Flavor was also very musty, incredibly dry and mineral, true microflora at work here.
