3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Bottle: Mild gush, hazy pale yellow body with a soapy, quickly receding stark white head. Aroma is fresh grass, lemon zest, mild hops, a touch of farmhouse yeasty tartness. Taste is light and refreshing, zesty lemon-lime, a hint of tartness, grassy, leafy hops, a mild blanket-like yeasty funk, finishing dryness with a fading lemon and orange tartness. Smooth, refreshing, quenching saison.

This poured a slightly hazy gold with a rather thick head. The aroma is mostly dark fruits and possibly licorice and caramel. It has a subtle sweetness overtaken by an indistinct spiciness and fruitiness. I think I like it....

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle through an awesome trade. Pours a clear yellow gold, huge fluffy white head tons of spider web like lace. Nose most definitely sour. Tastes tart, and possibly a little of wheat. This is so light, refreshing and just perfect on so many levels. There may be a slight touch of Brett in there somewhere.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Date on the side of the bottle reads 02/2015.
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a hazy yellow color with a soft foamy white head that dissipated within less than a minute. Lacing is somewhat stringy.
The smell starts off with a nice sweet citrus to rustic funk. White grapes, lemon, lemongrass enliven to bring about an extra little spice - what seems like peppercorn.
The taste takes the sweet to combine nicely with the rustic and the funk through the previously mentioned flavors. Spice (peppercorn) comes back to balance and add an extra little kick to it. As it warms, it gets a slight sour to tart edge to it and it’s absolutely fantastic. There’s no aftertaste and it has a quick little sweet to rustic to slightly sour finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a super nice sessionability about it. Carbonated nicely as a saison, I’d say this had a nice semi-spicy to sour to tart feel over my tongue.
Overall, hot damn, probably the absolute best Hill Farmstead beer I’ve had to date.

Bottle: Cloudy pale gold because I got the pour from the bottom of the bottle. Rubber aroma with a taste akin to a sour ale. Well done. Farmhouse style.

Bottle, thanks Tim! Aroma is sour lemon, black pepper, and grain. Tastes the same. Very tart. Light sourness. Lots of lemon juice. Really good and easy to drink but I like other HF saisons more.
