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.

750ml bottle poured into a tulip:. Hazy straw colored with a very thick, foamy, white head. Aroma is lemon, hay, brett, and funk. Taste is a bit citrusy, pepper, and definitely a brett yeast element but it’s not overpowering (which I enjoy). Medium body, a bit bitter from the brett, nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The 750mL pours with a murky sort of hazy gold body that supports a white head. The aroma offers up sugary sweetness, spicy Saison like yeasty notes, plenty of flowery wet meadow and mild fruity esters. Smells pretty rich. The taste confirms this as it is on the sweet sluggish side for a Saison with sugary sweetness, apples and pear sweet fruity esters rimmed with a fruit skin like tartness and then yeasty spices. It picks up lots of floral and flowery notes as well as a touch of funky basement mustiness mixed tartness toward the finish. Overall too heavy and too sweet.
