Pours a cloudy golden color with a big bubbly white head. The aroma is filled with vanilla, toast, white pepper, lemon, and a hint of earth. On the palate the citrus becomes more complex and the spices really start to dominate. There's like an overwhelming zing on your tongue once you've swallowed and there's an oily essence that lingers long after the last sip. Wow. I thought it would be overhyped but now I'm not do sure.

HMOG 2014. Thanks jrob21. Light hay, mellow lemon, grassy, light refreshing tart, a bit of funk and spice. Real refreshing, highly carbed. It was one of those slow gushers. Awesome stuff.

Beautiful cloudy yellow color, effervescent yet nearly opaque. A bit rustic in the nose, with the palate lending to a more tart lemony and yeasty character. Another excellent HF saison offering.

Pours a beautiful hay color with a decent white head. Smells like a bouquet of lemons and yeast. Tastes glorious! So yeasty and sour. Brett isn't overpowering, but is a very nice addition.

Bottle at the Triad bottle share at Foothills organized by Mike. Hazy pale gold pour. Nice blend of both citrus juiciness and bready notes in the nose. Lovely flavor with soft but juicy pineapple and orange rind balance by rye bread and coriander. Full and almost frothy mouthfeel despite being thin and crisp. Yeasty finish. Refined, delicate, tried and true Hill Farmstead. Really good.

Bottle thanks to Seth. Pours a cloudy orange with medium frothy white head that lasts leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is strong citrus, lemon zest, yeast, and brett. Medium mouthfeel with strong yeast, light citrus, with lingering brett flavor. Refreshing and easy to drink, very impressive.

Majestueuse robe dorée orangée qui éjecte à son sommet une mousse onctueuse. Le nez est celui d’un pain frais tartiné d’un gâteau de levure et saupoudré d’un zest d’orange. Le corps est bien effervescent et se métamorphose plus avance la dégustation, c’est presque juteux vers la fin. Le liquide traverse délicatement un brouillard de houblons vers une finale légèrement herbacée.

It’s my name! Bottle shared thanks to beerman6686. Pours a hazy yellow with a fluffy white head. Leaves a beautiful lacing. Aroma of slight Brett but not too crazy. Slight pineapple. Taste is dry and slightly tart. Effervescent. Delicious.
