Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Spicy and fruity saison yeast, light lemony citric sweetness, some nice woody barrel character, and faint spices. Super drinkable.

2014-08-16. Hazy dark yellow body with a small white head. 3+ Aroma has mild citrus up front then cedes much of the character to the Chardonnay barrel. 7+ Flavour is lightly sour, with woody vinous barrel character. Mild citrus and fruit. Average bodied palate, soft eff carbonation. Decent, I am curious if the barrel was as dominant when the beer was younger. Bottle, Batch 06 2013, at Campground Brewdown

Bottle shared at Jeff’s. Clear gold pour with almost no head. Aromas are musty oak, white wine, sour lemon, light brett and black pepper. Taste brings slightly sour lemons that come off a little pulpy even. Lots of wood and white wine too. Slight tartness in the finish with lingers wood and wine. Pretty solid but not as great as I was hoping for.

Bottle: Thanks, Jason. Beaming amber with moderate clarity, the white film is gone in seconds, not even a collar is left. Aroma has lovely notes of white grape, white wine tartness with light oak, lemon, fresh yeast, some lacto-esque tartness, & a nice dryness throughout. Taste is a little less tart, but is super juicy with hefty notes of white grape, lemon, hay, a very mild barnyard twinge, & very nice inclusions of vinous, dry oak that sifts in & out throughout the entire sip. Lovely dry finish with lingering vinous grape, wet oak, & faint yeast. Just a small hint of white pepper spice. Not in the upper echelon of Hill Farmstead saisons, but still a very delicious saison.

Pour is transparent golden amber with a white head. Nose is bright, juicy, apple skin and some malt. Taste is dry, soft carbonation and a light body. Apple skin, pear, some malt complexity with a moderate tartness but a fair bit of sweetness. Check with the guys, struggled to come up with descriptions.

jrob21 (2597) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle from a trade a while back and shared with the crew. Light yellow muted color. Wafting aroma with yeast and lemon and grassy hops. Funky for a saison. Very noticeable pepper flavors. Finish is a little yeast and slight band aid hops/yeast combo but faint and nice.

Bottle shared by jrob21 and drank with the group. Wow if it wasn’t for Sante Adarius, this would have stole the show on a day where the lineup was absurd. Bright lemon peel, some white wine notes, funk, superbly dry, oak. Damn damn good stuff
