Slightly sour, with barnyard and hay nuances above lemon citrus. Easy drinking, seemed pretty par for the course for the style.

Bottle from thepatrickman or reynolds314-not sure, they both gave me one! Thanks, guys! About a year old, so imagine most dry hopping has faded and brett has come on. Cloudy apricot juice orange. Nose is some sweaty brett, light limestone, light lemon citrus. Taste is dry with lightly tart, prickly finish with flavors of oxidized pineapple, round minerality, light lemon. Balance for days.

Really nice saison once again by Shaun. Aroma is fresh spices and lemon. Taste is classic saison and reminds me of a crisper dryer version of dupont saison. My only knock on this was a slight unpleasant finish of bitter yeast.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the Hill. Pours very golden, medium puffy white head, dissipates to nice residual and lacing. Aroma of citrus, grass, slightly funky Brett notes, pine resin. Flavor is lightly tart, dry, hints of funk, mineral water, citrus, pine and Brett. Light body, soft mouthfeel. Solid, but I think I like the "regular" version a bit more.

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.
