brokensail (10530) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle shared by Bobby. Pale golden pour with a white head and some haze. Really musty, kind of basement like nose. Grass, apple skin, cranberry, and oak. Yeast, unripe plum, and light citrus. Flavor is kind of astringent. Raw cranberry, oak, and lots of musty funk. Oak, yeast, and chalk. Light acidity of citrus zest.

PhillyCraft (3071) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Bottle at VT bottle share. Pours murky yellow with massive white head and awesome lacing patterns. Tons of fluff. Aromas are citrus zest, smooth oak, saison yeast, well water, flowers, and grain. Taste is vinous funk, tart apple, barrel, crisp citrus fruit, yeast, and well water. Lots of rustic Arthur is present in this blend. Tiny bubble carbonation and med body. Great!

Tap at the Festival of Farmhouse Ales 2012 - Hill Farmstead. Pours hazy, yellow-gold with a giving, white foam head. Nose has some biscuity pale malts, tangy citrus fruits, lemon, moderate funk. Light sweet flavor with lots of zippy lemon, further dryish and lightly biscuity pale malts, a spot of wheat, yeast, pleasant funk tang. Light bodied with average to lively, massaging carbonation. Cleansing finish with further brisk lemon, some orange and grapefruit, biscuity pale malts, light musky funk, wheat. Lovely, lovely beer.

750 mL bottle. Thanks to a few guys for hooking me up with this. Shared alongside CD 1 and CD 2. Also thanks to Starr for sharing one earlier. Pours a clear, light golden color with a large, fluffy white head and nice lace. Very fruit and juicy nose, of wine, grape, citrus and light floral flourishes. Flavor is more of a typical saison than nose suggested, but that’s not a complaint. Yeasty spice, earthy hops, slightly funky and some dry oak. Light crisp body with a refreshing dry finish.

Bottle shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael. Civil Disobedience 1-3 side by side. The beer is fairly hazy and straw yellow with a substantial white head. The aroma offers floral notes, oak, tart citrus, wine, oak, grass. Very enticing. The flavor is quite good as well. Additional notes of brett and earthy funk. Light bodied and easy drinking. Complex and delicious. Another winner from Hill Farmstead. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-02-2012

mcberko (5919) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2012
750mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a clear golden yellow with a medium white head (at least on the first pour - by the end of the bottle, it was pouring a dirty golden yellow due to the sediment). Aroma of citrus fruity esters, signature Hill Farmstead yeast, and a very rustic tone. Flavour is super rustic, with the signature Hill Farmstead yeast character, a bit of funk, and some subtle vinous and oak barrel notes that finish off the palate. Lively carbonation, with a wonderful complexity. Another awesome saison from the masters.

Bottle from Tooch4321...thanks Adam! - Pours hazy yellow with a thin white head. Nose is bretty as hell, dry and pale with a a bit of white grape and dusty yeast. Light oak. Taste is dry and bretty, with a bit of plastic, but enough grape fruitiness to balance it out. A bit of woodiness, and the body is like silk. Really thin bubbled carbonation with a medium body.

In short: An uber-rustic and slightly tart Saison. A treat for the Saison lover
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed approximately 6 months after the release
The look: Cloudy yellow blonde body topped by a large white head with good retention
In long: Nose is has a strong and bright rustic character with the signature blend of Hill farmstead yeast, also tropical fruits and white wine barrels. Taste is super clean, lively well carbonated body, crisp crackery malts, fresh tropical fruits, medium tartness, discreet notes of Arthur hop signature, light mouth-drying woody notes, an overall true rustic countryside character. The description says it is a blend of Arthur and Vera Mae but I didn’t recognize the Vera Mae at all. With its tartness I thought it tasted like a cross between Flora and Arthur with and sauvignon barrels presence. Another kick-ass Saison from Hill Farmstead, and it’s nice to see a new brewery doing so well when the economy is so bad that recently in most cities all over the USA, tens of thousands of people had to sleep outside, on the streets, with only their sleeping bags, without sanitary facilities, to line-up to buy the new iPhone5.
