Bottle, thank you kind Lukaduke. Been 364 days since I enjoyed the one I smuggled home from the brewery -- gonna try to make this an annual treat for my birthday no matter what it takes! Almost impossible to find fault with this -- it looks beautiful, it smells amazing, it tastes incredible and it drinks like perfection. I don’t have the vocabulary for the HF saisons, I just want to enjoy them and share my happiness. Cheers!

Bottled. Pours clear golden with a large, lacing, white head. Aroma of toasted caramel, flovery and citrussy hops, yeast, pebber and coriander. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and slightly bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A great spicy and crisp Saison.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft @ Pony Bar. Pours a super cloudy yellow with a med white head. Aroma is floral, lemon lime mix, barnyard, wheat, light dank sock.. Glorious. Flavor is a lot of lemon lime tart, wheat, floral notes.. Tart on the finish. This stuff is glorious, nothing standout just perfectly balanced, drinkable, and refreshing. Super light mouthfeel, crisp and refreshing, lively Carini (autocorrect... Hilarious, meant carbo).

Bottle. Wow. Ok, this was my first HF beer and it was just awesome. Easily my favorite saison. Pours bright hazy yellow. Thick white dissipating head. Aroma is slightly pungent and acidic. Taste is fresh and puckering. Farmhouse funk and sour comes through. Tiny lacing bubbles on glass. Great beer.
