Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell - big thanks to Momma Smith for picking this up and to Sister Nellie for bringing it to London (via Cluj, Romania). A moderate gusher! Pours dark brown with a creamy, beige head. Good and tangy berry aroma, big funk, leather, grapes. Light sweet flavor with some sweat, leathery dark fruits, ripe berries, sturdy wild funk. Light to medium bodied with average, creamy carbonation. Fairly tangy to finish, some acetic bite, more sweaty and leathery fruits. Another great one.

Murky mahogony brown with a tan head that clears to a film. Some little floaty friends make themselves known!
Nose is sour cherries, tarte berry fruit,oaky wood notes, light smoke, burnt straw.
Taste comprises tarte berry fruits, touch of yeast, grass, funky, famyard, light herbals.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry crisp finish.
Solid enough stuff but came over more as a sour than a saison to me.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
750mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a deep dark brown / near-black with a large beige head. Nose is very complex, full of farmhouse notes, deep earthy notes, oak barrels, some wood tannins, a little roast, and a touch of dark fruits. Flavour is remarkably complex, full of wood tannins, oak barrels, a strong earthy farmhouse dominance, some mild lactic notes, light-to-moderate sourness, yeast and some dark fruits. A blend of stunning complexity here, with all the notes working in incredible harmony. I feared the carbonation would be too lively, as has been the case in many other black saisons I’ve had, but this is perfectly suited. One of my favourite Hill Farmstead beers and one of the best black saisons. Remarkable.
