3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yellow like mountain dew. White poofs all about. Smells like malt and hops, pre mash/boil. A little ’do the dew’-y actually. Hmm. Cirtrus. Bubbly, orangey, and not bitter. Unfiltered, wheat taste. Tangy? ’Salright.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy straw orange, huge fluffy head with great retention and lacing, lively bubbles visible. All these HF brews look pretty great. On the nose is heavy yeast character, bready pale malts, overtones of lemon citrus, floral hops. Taste is very much a mirror of the nose- pale malts with nice, lemony, some mineral character, yeast, and soft herbal hops in the aftertaste. Feels great in the mouth, not too thin, and dry. Lovely straightforward saison with great balance, but lacking some of the complexities I’ve enjoyed in other HF offerings.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served on-tap at Capone’s into a sampler glass.
A - Pours pale yellow with a strong one finger head, dissipating to a light film of head, leaving thin sheets of lacing down the glass
S - Tons of breadyness up front with a bit of funk. A bit dry with some hints of citric hops and fruits. The bready mix of malt and yeast really dominated the other flavors a bit too much.
T - Starts off with plenty of bready yeast up front giving way quickly to a mix of muted grassy hops and citric fruits. Finish is quite chewy, thanks to all that bready yeast and malt, and it lingers on the pallet for quite a bit of time. I wanted to like this one more but I just do not like how chewy it was.
M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Fairly heavy, chewy, feel with plenty of it lingering long after consumption.
D - Good not great. I liked it but I prefer my saison’s to be a little cleaner and funkier. I just don’t seem to like these bready saison’s very much I guess.

Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours a nice hazy pale golden with a magnificent, staying, frothy, white head. Aroma has green grapes, green apples, fresh cut grass, crisp and light doughy malts, a slight bit of funk. High carbonation, lively and frothy and light dry mouthfeel. Flavour is super-crisp and flawless. Roses, crisp malts, good hoppy dryness, sharpish white pepper, grass, green apples, light zesty and still just an indication of funk. Lovely saison.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by beace at Jackie O’s. The beer is a hazy yellow-gold color with a thin white head that evaporates to wispy patches. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma is mildly funky with notes of yeast, citrus and wheat. Light body with flavors of citrus, wheat, earthy malt and yeast. The finish is fruity with a short yeast aftertaste. Above average overall.
