Bottle from gnosis.. thanks.. Bottle back to back with Arthur.. Pour is paler yellow with same 3 finger head. A bit clearer than the Arthur. Lemon, pepper, cloves, sage on the nose..a bit more herbal and lighter smelling. Wow.. buckwheat, honey, citrus, mint. More carbonated and less tart than the Arthur. Same creamy feel but slightly crisper. Prefer the Arthur’s tartness but the Florence nose.

Another Hill Farmstead saison, perhaps a bit more simple than something like Anna, but I really doubt I could differentiate them blindly without trying each like fifty more times. It’s good beer, is what counts.

Bottle shared with jamesy - cheers! Wow, this might have to be my favorite "shelf" Hill Farmstead beer. It’s got a lot of the hallmark HF saison traits, with tartness and brett flavor, excellent water chemistry, and a really good overall balance, but the presence of wheat really kicks it up a notch or two. The wheat malt gives it improved flavor and mouthfeel, and makes it reminiscent of some of the great Belgian sours. Outstanding.
