750 ml bottle from Hill Farmstead. Pours a hazy golden yellow with an enormous fluffy white head like meringue on a pie. I normally donít comment on lacing but this beer stuck to the glass as though it was meringue. Aromas of sweet grass, zesty lemon, some florals, and maybe a hint of banana. Tastes are sour lemon and grapefruit, a little salt, and a lightly bitter grass/hay. Lively on the palate, light bodied, strong carbonation, and a medium sour/salty finish. Great sessionable beer (although watch out for the 6% abv).

Bottle from batch 2 at Padraig's. Thanks to Leighton for hooking me up! Surges out if the bottle. Big carbonation. Hazy gold, big bubbly white head. Aroma is hay, countryside air in the spring, pollen, lemon oil, freshly cut herbs. Flavour... Tart, hugely refreshing, then it reveals white pepper, lemon verbena, lemon rind, grapefruit juice, citrus oils. Dry, dry finish... Bone dry. Every sip is something different - very clean but also wild. A wonderful, fantastic beer.

Prufrockstar (1817) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle, shared at a recent tasting. Iím coming to believe that big bottle-shares arenít a great vehicle for saisons. Imperial stouts, barley wines, sours -- those beers are potent, intense, and a few ounces is often all I even want to drink of them. Saisons, though -- they take time to open up, and can really reward peace, quiet, reflection, and more than an ounce or two of liquid. Not going to complain, of course, and am still going to tick this -- itís not every day that the hallowed beers of Vermont are bestowed upon us out here, and Iím not going to pass up the opportunity to let the world know that I had this and at least pretended to analyze it. Anyway, my notes: "pours like pear juice, hazy and gold. Aroma mineral, lots of lemon-tart pear juice and that "dandelion" aroma that the fantome pissenlit has. Slick, almost slimy texture, moderately sweet. Coolish ..." and thatís where my notes drop off. Probably because MBCP was being opened and I got ahead of myself. Would love to sit down with a bottle of this and at most 1 friend to see what it would bring under calmer circumstances.

bytemesis (6165) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Bottle thanks to Tooch4321. Pours cloudy gold with a very large off-white head, creamy and slow to dissipate, leaving nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is peppery, fruity, floral, lemon. Flavor is lightly sweet with honey notes, peppery and fruity. Quite nice. Light body, strong carbonation, quite drinkable. Deserves its exalted status in the world of saisons.

cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Pour is pale straw colored, violent bubbles rising to the top with tons of bubbly fluffy white head. Nose is great, strong notes of earthy Saison yeast, light pepper balance with floral and herbal hops and a pleasant honey note in back. Taste is very light, not as earthy and yeasty as the nose, a bit more bright citrus with a sweet clean honey. Pepper is faint but adds a touch of balance. Nice floral touch integrated very well and boasting quite a bit of depth. Body is airy and enjoyable, strong carbonation and super crisp. This beer rivals Anna, awesome stuff.

Bottle, 01/22/2014. Pours pale golden yellow, slight haze, huge rocky head with great retention, thick soapy lacing clinging around the glass. Aroma is a cloud of yeast, dusty hay and grains, floral notes slightly reminiscent of Mamouche, light grassy notes with touch of sweetness, lemon on the finish. Taste is moderate lemon citrus sweetness, some tartness, floral bitterness with honeyed hay, mild grassy funkiness, yeast. Light, bright body, nice carbonation. Lovely.
