bottle shared with friends. murky pale yellow with a frothy white head, good retention and lacing. green, citrus, soft brettiness, spices, hint of acidity, leafiness. prickly carbonation, light body, abrupt (read not necessarily enjoyable) herbal-grassy finish. overall: a very good offering from HF, again.

Bottle thanks to Dave ! Pours a slightly hazy yellow golden color with tons of sticky gaseous foam that rises with little agitation. On the nose its complex and inviting... nice lemony tartness mingles with citrus, barnyard funk and some nice vinous fruit. The palate is as yummy as the nose and just as complex with great juicy orange, bitter citrus peel, hop funk and vinous tartness all coming together in a well balanced focused finish. Wow

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy pale yellow color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some excellent lacing. Aroma consists of pungent herbal hops with loads of funky notes and some rustic malt also discernable. Taste is a unique and funky mix between some herbal and floral hops with pungent notes with some rustic malt and light residual sugar notes. Brett is well dosed and hard to distinguish. Body is full with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. This beer made for a very nice Christmas eve treat.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
pour is extremely cloudy orange with tons of bubbly white head. Nose is lemony, notes of Saison yeast, a touch dusty and citrusy. Taste is a bit bland, some lemon, maybe faint yeast. Fairly celtzery and leathery, thin finish. Overly bretted, body is decent, high carb and drinkable, faintly dry.
