Poured from a corked 750 ml. bottle thanks to Eric for sending this. Light golden color with a bit of haziness. Thin but nice white head. Aroma off the top is lemon, wheat, yeast, and funk. Light in body and some prickly carbonation. Interesting mix of flavors with a flowery herbaceous quality along with hints of the Pinot barrel. A definite funky quality with maybe a slight acetic bite. The hop presence is there as well. A good beer and unique but maybe not my favorite HFS Saison.

Bottle shared at the Kernel Brewery. Thanks to tendermorsel for sharing - Cheers Mike! Hazy gold beer, little white head. Light dry palate, light dry malt - somewhat wheaty with a whisper of banana. Mild honey and a trace of citrus lemon-lime. Dry minerally finish. Not bad.

The taste is vanilla ice cream, peach, nectarine, Granny Smith apple, lemon, kiwi, yeast, farmyard and light pepper, with a juicy citrus finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Massively drinkable.

750 mL purchased from the brewery in July. Pours a somewhat hazy and bubbly gold with long-lasting white head. Smells very pungent and acidic, like you’d expect a biting wine to taste. A flowery yet vinegary smell and taste to it. Flowery is really a good way to put it. Almost dances on the tongue...really tasty.

Clean gold pour with a fluffy white head. Brett, cereal grain, esters and floral notes. Light acidity, great barrel character and moderate funkiness . Awesome

Bottle shared at a recent BA/RB tasting... Poured pale, golden/straw with a thin head. Fruity and eatery with some earthiness and floridness. Yeast tartness, oak, wheat malts, wine-like oak and woody tones, and a hint of tangy sourness.
