4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rating number 2300 and my first Hill Farmstead. Thanks for sharing the bottle Tim! Pours a hazy, lemon colored straw with a finger of foam that lingers. Tart lemon zest on the nose with some iyokan and tangerine aromas. More tart than I expected but pleasantly so. Very active carbonation. Light bodied with a slight yogurt character. Dry finish. Fantastic saison.

Pours yellowish white, creamy. Aroma is fresh, citrusy and with some herbal kick up front. Sour notes. Tastes lightly tart, citrusy goodness, smooth and highly drinkable. Like a lemon tart. Delicious.

Very hazy chalk white color. Frothy white head. Tart, funky, citrusy, dry, hoppy with a bit of bandaid that works well in the nose. Very tart, citrusy, funky, decent amount of brett, dry and hoppy. Perfectly balanced and put together. A bit more sour than I expected, but I love it. Estry finish with some citrus notes just lingering. Amazing.
