4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Growler pour from Mike at the Ephraim event. Pour is a clearish blonde. Zero lacing and very bare head. Carbonation is very mellow. Aromas of belgian spicy yeast, bannanas, clove, apples, honey, pumpkin guts. Taste is herbal crisp, with coriander, orange peel, cedar, pumking, peppery lemon. Finishes crisp and delicious with a halloween aftertaste. Great refreshing witbier/saison hybrid from Hill Farmstead. They haven’t let me down yet.

Clear gold pour, white head. Crisp aroma, guava, saison yeast, wheat, soft spice notes. Flavor is a wonderful mix of saison notes and wheat. Lightly herbaceous hops, orange peel, wow. Just wow.

effervescent lemon, puffy large-bubbled white head, spidery lacing. Incredibly delicate nose is slightly spicy, wit-est aspect, grainy, doughy, and monstrously bright. Lemony flavor mule kicks with husky wheat, esters indistinguishably low, hazy dough end. Carbonation kicks ass. Stunning.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2012 On tap at skinny pancake. $5.46 for a 40cl HFS glass. Poured a gorgeous cloudy straw appearance. Big carbonation. Bright yellow appearance. This is gorgeous. Huge wheat and lemon scent. Bready Belgian yeast. Taste is so nicely balanced. Darnit Shaun. Stop being so awesome! Big dry fresh wheat taste. Insanely dry finish. Lemon grass and hay. Funky farmhouse finish with fleeting light hops. Light body. Very excellent finish.

Draft @ Skinny Pancake, Montpelier. Served in a HFS chalice. Very lightly hazy yellow. High carbonation, producing bubbly head. Fantastic nose has my taste buds salivating. The nose and taste mimic each other. Yeast, barnyard, orange zest, maybe coriander spice?? Light and refreshing mouthfeel. Light /soft texture. Big citrus notes make it perfect for a warm day. For me it’s Wit beer meets saison. Two styles I love and wrapped up into one great farmhouse style brew.
If I didn’t have bills, I would quit my job, and beg the brew master to let me be his apprentice! One day, I strive to brew a Belgian wheat beer that tastes this good and has no imperfections. I have sampled many examples of this style from all over the world, this brew hangs near the top of the style. If I could get this in Southern NH, I would drink this all summer long. Artfully crafted.

Thanks to jwale73 for this bottle!! Pours super hazy pale yellow with a white crown and lumpy lacing. Smell is pepper, spice, lemon. Taste starts of peppery then it is citric flowing into sourness from the brett and it all ends very dry and citric. Light in body and smooth...slightly slippery. A splendid beer - my friend said that it reminded him of a berliner weise...I think there is truth to that.

Shared by Dak. Pours a hazy golden color with a white head. Didn’t quite look like a wit, but yeast had apparently settled as someone else got a cloudier pour. Aroma was an unbelieveable fruit--guava and passion fruit. Absolutely amazing! Taste was sweet with some spice and light bitterness. Had some saison characteristics. Thin bodied and a bit spicy. Superb!

750 mL growler poured into a tulip glass. clear yellow pour with lighter head then most HF belgian ales. Aroma is cracker malts, coriander, clove, and earth all of which are very subtle. Taste is much of the same and the beer is very easy drinking and refreshing.
