4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours hazy golden butterscotch, large puffy white head, slow to dissipate and leaving lots of clingy lacing. Light aroma overall, with citrus, fresh cut grass, floral and slightly funky notes. Flavor is lightly tart, citric, lots of field of flowers flavors, a bit of white pepper, nice and fruity with a very light funkiness that comes on later. Medium body. Surprisingly not as soft and smooth as I normally expect from HF on the mouthfeel, but otherwise exceptional.

Bottle Share: Hazy golden hue and okay fluffly head. Notes of lemon, slight barnyard, biscuit, herbs, touch of pine and citrus and some minerally earth tones. I nice Saison but I must say I hoped to be floored and that did not happen.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a taster glass showing cloudy straw yellow with a finger of fluffy clea white foam.
The nose shows slight bretty and lemon notes with a farmhouse background.
The palate is light bodied, moderately but sharply tart, highly carbonated with flavors of lemon zest and very little farmhouse flavor. There’s a slight spice on the palate and a pilsner-like bitterness at the end.

Bottle shared with my wife sent to me from Tom10101, thanks man! Yellow hazy colour with lively white head. Aroma is tart citrus funk, white grapes, and grass. Taste is lemon zest, followed by light funk, then a citrus lemongrass burst. Finishes dry, medium mouthfeel, plenty of carbonation. Fantastic stuff, tons of juicy citrus flavour, very refreshing and a pleasure to drink.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Au nez, on sent les fruits tropicaux sûrs. Fruits de la passion, mangue, ananas et des agrumes ressortent accompagnés de levures. En bouche, c'est très intense sur le bout et cotés de la langue. Surette, mais pas trop, la levure est bien présente toujours secondée par tous ces fruits. La finale s'estompe plus rapidement que ce à quoi je m'attendais. Très fine et agréable. C'est une autre biere d'exception de Russian River!
