Bottle poured into a Hill Farmstead stem. Pour: Pours a lightly hazy, bright straw yellow with a finger and a half white, fluffy head. Some nice lacing, and the head sticks around for a little while. Wonderful looking saison. Smell: Big white wine barrel up front, mixed with funk, oak, and bright lemon. As it warms, the funk becomes more pronounced. Citrusy and bright. Taste: Immediate white wine barrel and oak up front, with a heavy funk and strong lactic tartness. Lemons and citrus. Very Art forward. Mineral funk controls the mid and finish, but plays well with the bright lemony tartness. Finishes quite dry. As it warms, the oak and funk become more pronounced, exhibiting more lambic qualities. Mouthfeel: Quite tart and borderline sour. Perfectly carbonated. Overall: One of the best Hill Farmstead beers yet, and time is only going to help this beer progress.

Don’t shoot me cause I actually opened my bottle. these really just keep getting better. Tons of tart, funky, lambic flavors, mixed with amazing house microflora. This is amazing, I wish I had more!

Bottle - Pours a golden yellow w/ a frothy white head. A nice funky smell. The taste is wonderful. Funk, slightly tart, a little lemon/citrus notes on the backend. This is very solid.

Reynolds314 (2296) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Pours a golden straw color with moderate hazyness and a moderate white head. Aroma is grapefruit, sourdough, a bit musty, and some light lemon. Taste is a zing of tartness with moderate sweetness on the finish. Some oaky character and light wine notes are present as well. Really great beer that I look forward to seeing develop further.

Marheb (2013) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2014
Un nez de chardonnay et de jeune lambic, une fusion fruitée entre la carambole et l’ananas, belle sauvagerie. Les même notes suivent en bouche avec l’assaut beurré qui reste après la disparition de l’acidité. Superbe assemblage.

Bottle. Glowing sunny gold, with a lasting ring of foam and some veil. Aroma is marvellous with funk, cheese and barnyard from the lambic. Definitly feels like Cantillon. Art is also present with white wine, honey and earthy peppery hops. Taste is puckering lemon, white wine, juicy hops and citrus rind. Mouthfeel is sharp and dry as it should be. White wine and honey makes it a little bit more mellow but it feels more like a lambic. Awesome lambic with a saison touch. Definitely more pungent than #6 and at least on par with #5 which I loved.

Bottle, shared by a friend. Glowing hazy gold pour, thin white head. Aroma is quite luring, nice tart lemony lambic aromas, tons of white wine, very subtle funky aromas, hay, pepper, beautiful. Taste is quite tart (lemony), über dry, citric with a mineral-like finish. Palate is light, dry and super quaffable. I’d have a bottle of this with every nice dinner please.

JBPortland (747) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 11, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 375ml bottle pours hazy semi-clear gold with small 1 finger head. Nose is funk, barrel, tart golden apples and hay, straw. Mouthfeel is so well balanced, delicate but not thin, just the right amount of moderate carbonation. Taste is bright tart apple skin, funky, woody, hay, citrus, grape, barnyard. Finish is complex white grape, oak, earthy, barrel notes. Complex, elegant, delicious. Wonderful!

Leighton (10772) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2013 Bottle shared at Sander’s in NYC. Pours lightly hazy gold with a frothy, white head. The nose has some light, grassy lambic character, cornflakes, general cereal, mellow funk. Great flavor. Lovely, balanced tangy funk, light sweetness, soured wheat, decent grassy bitterness. Light bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Very clean to finish with further funk, light cereal, pale bread, balanced bitter grass, mild dryness. Well balanced, clean and very drinkable.
