Leighton 10K tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to our ever dependable LKS for this one. Hazy pale gold beer, residual white head. Palate is very light and crisp. Light lemony sourness, touch of floralness. Very light mandarin. Light sherbet before the light finish. Nice.

Bottle shared in London - picked up at the brewery. Pours clear, pale yellow with a creamy, white head. Super clean aroma, nice lemony citrus, a bit of hay, light floral notes. Light sweet flavor with lightly juicy lemon, mild acidity, slight bitter hay, a bit of jammy mandarin orange. Light bodied with average carbonation and airy mouthfeel. Nicely drying on the finish, good moderately tart lemons, slight bitter straw. Well balanced, refreshing. Very clean. Delightful beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks Sam Lee. Pours a hazy gold, white head. So this one is good. But the Satsuma addition has taken away from what is probably one of the best beers in the saison category that I have hever had. The Satsuma muddles it. Takes away from the crisp and clean flavors. Its still good, but I would never choose this over regular Flora.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Hazy straw-colored ale with a tiny, fizzy, white head that’s gone in a flash. Lemon-like citrus acidity plays nicely with sourdough-like lactic acidity. Medium to full-bodied with tickling carbonation. The acidic, fruity flavor is moderately sour and jam-packed with stone fruit and plum skins. Lengthy, tart, crisp finale. Holy shit, Shaun - a Hill Farmstead beer with some actual texture to it? You are definitely onto something here. World class beer provided by a world class dude - landhoney!
