Reynolds314 (3238) - Connecticut, USA - APR 7, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2012 (Batch 1 reviewed 4/7/12) Pours like all hill farmstead saisons, a cloudy straw color with billowing white head. Aroma is earth, lemon, herbal floral notes, and biscuit. Taste is Anna with that nice floral note. The one negative I had on this particular bottle was an overwhelming carbonation that made it difficult to take even an averaged size sip without having foam shoot out your nose. (4.1) Batch 2 reviewed 8/13/12 Appearance is golden straw and fluffy white head. Aroma is herbal and grassy, lemon tartness, If you could bottle the smell of spring this is it... Taste is out of this world good. Just really juicy and herbal grassy with floral potporri type notes and a great tart zing at the end. Medium sweetness and nice full bodied mouthfeel that I think the first batch lacked. (4.4)

Coudy pale yellow with a firm head. Some hint of dandelion milk in the aroma, usual lemony HF character, some funk notes. Very vinous. Very nice again from HF

Heather_B (246) - New Hampshire, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Aroma is herbal tea and floral. Hazy golden. Minimal white head. Taste is green tea central. Iím getting weeds, mildew, and flowers. Itís such a dynamic and different beer but the flavors are balanced well. I love this. Will continue the annual dandelion picking.

ctipping (1007) - Florida, USA - NOV 17, 2015
750 mL bottle. Unknown original review date. Golden yellow with a nice white head. Lace inside the glass and swirly designs on the surface. Smell is intensely floral. Also very yeasty. Pale malt and a white wine-like acidity. Tastes very yeasty. Flowery and winey. Grassy bitterness builds into the finish. Floral flavors linger. Light. Crisp and spritzy. Nice flower flavor in the finish. Very enjoyable. The flowers are intense, but the saison handles them well.

A great pour. Canít even see through it like a dirty yellow lake. A bright white layer on top. A earthy grassy flowery aroma thatís very fresh. Small tartness. So refreshing. So good. Great stuff.

SlackerMads (2689) - DENMARK - OCT 10, 2015
Bottle. Hazy yellow with a medium sized white head. Rustic nose of baking yeast, hay, dust, grapes, flowers - dandelions if you know it. Flavour follows; light barnyard/hay loft, grapes, dust, honey, hay. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, filling sweetness, light/medium sour. Wonderful balance, really soft and flavourful.
