Lukaduke (2486) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Pours a light golden color with a two finger plus sticky foam... the nose has some nice aromas of grass, vinous citrus and some oak. The palate is balanced beautifully with nice pineapple undertones that back up the grassy citrusy and lemon tartness. Nice touch of earth yeast and pepper on the finish. Awesome !

Bottle with huge thanks to Jason - shared among friends. Pours cloudy golden, small white head, good lacing. Aroma is oak, dusty, fruity, some cut grass. Light tart, medium funky, barnyards, mineral water. Light plus body, creamy soft HF signature mouthfeel. Shawn is clearly making the best Saisons available right now.

Cloudy yellow with nice persistent foam. Minerals, flowers. Tart, dry, similar taste profile, wine, wine, wine. But with more bite in the mouthfeel. Love it.

Liquide d’une belle robe jaune trouble. Petit gushing à l’ouverture de la bouteille mais le tout se dissipe rapidement. Les arômes se dévoilent rapidement. Présence de bretts assuré avec les effluves de citron et de levures sauvages bien acidulées. En bouche, les bretts prennent la place rapidement pour donner un goût acidulé puissant mais bref pour ensuite laisser la place au vieillissement en barriques de vin blanc. Ce dernier apporte une finale vineuse et plus âcre qui donne une belle complexité à la bière. Très fruitée en général, balancée et rafraichissante.

MrHangover (2994) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle @ New Years Tasting. Courtesy of kermis. Pours a hazy golden beer with a big white head on top. Aroma is very funky, saison yeast, some vineous notes in there and peppery side note. Flavor has some sour touches, crisp hoppy palates and again loads of white wine in there. Slight bitter sour finish, dry mouthfeel and great balance. Good stuff.

kermis (6069) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle shared at The Hague New Year Whale Session. Pours hazy orange with an off white head. Aroma is vinous, white wine showing up, peppery saison yeast, citrus, light oak and nice light funky aspects. Flavour is light to light moderate sweet and light moderate acidic. Over medium bodied with light carbonation.

dfroms (442) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Latest batch, huge thanks to Mike! Pours cloudy yellow. Aroma is funky yeast, wine barrel, pillowy soft stone fruit, straw, spice, orange peel, lambic-like funk, so well integrated. Taste is silky orange juice and lemonade with peach, white wine, oats, banana, spice. Full mouthfeel. Not nearly as sour as CD 10 and very good, but also slightly underwhelming given the hype.

Clownoisseur (334) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - NOV 5, 2014
Pours a vibrant, yet slightly hazy yellow-gold. A nice fizzy white head appears, briefly, before breaking into some gorgeous lacing. Aromas a wet oak, cobweb, slight citrus zest and musty white grapes are all very present. Very inviting. Taste is extremely balanced with light earthy hops upfront that fade into the HF signature yeast softness. Nice and crisp floral hops, balanced with light breads. Vinous notes creep into the back end, making this one drink very dry. More hints of oak, Brett and white grapes into the finish. Light bitterness and moderate tartness....very dry...and very, very good.

Bottle: Batch 2. Thanks, Kevin. First pass around the table, my pour was exceptionally clear, sunburst amber in color with a huge, long-lasting, foamy eggshell head. I got a good bit of dregs on pass #2 to give the beer a radiant, vibrant opaqueness. Aroma of Bretty cotton must, mild rustic barnyard funk with lovely undertones of white grape, wet driftwood, floral hops, zesty farmhouse yeast, & grainy tartness. The flavor.... Wow. Crisp Granny Smith apple, assertive white wine grapes; both tart & mildly vinous like a Pinot Grigio. Nice wet oak & woody character brings in a strong waft of bready yeast, brettanomyces funk, damp cotton musk, & funky cheesecloth. A good bit of citrus zest, lemon, & white grape towards the back-end for a lovely, finishing tartness. Just a touch of lingering yeast, wood, & white wine flavors on the palate. So insanely drinkable & refreshing. Art is impeccably polished & refined... Absolutely fantastic saison.

Bottle: The aroma consists of citrus, lemon peel, white wine, and brett. It pours a hazy golden-orange with a one finger white head that fades to a thin film. The flavor starts with moderate citrus and lemon. The finish has white wine, lemon peel, faint florals, brett, and faint sweet tarts. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, I could drink this all day.
