Thanks joey for picking this up for me!
Almost neon yellow, with mountainous white head. Smells like yeast, grass and flower stems. Very clean taste with an extra dry finish. Slight sweetness which is clearly raw honey that is followed by a citrus pucker sensation which flows through from your tongue to the back of your throat. One of the smoothest beers on the palate I have tasted yet become accustomed too when drinking HF. If I had one complaint and this is petty, but it may be slightly too earthy for me

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Alexey. Cloudy yellow with a big white head. Lovely funky aroma full of fruits, some flowers and sweaty notes. Funky flavor, sourish, fruity and floral with a slightly bitter finish. Medium-bodied, lively carbonation. Great.

Bottle 2014 vintage. Pours a beautiful sunny gold with huge white head. Aroma is lemony, light bugs, very floral and honey. Taste is citric tartness, brett and lemon rind. Light bodied and lively carbed. Not the most complex batch I’ve had, but a good saison nonetheless.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle @ RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting. T. Hanks, Biebers. Hazy golden straw pour with a big white head. Super floral and citrusy aroma. Great lemon zest, cracker, and yeast. Subtle spice. Damn, this is good. Mild tartness and acidity that works well with the dry, pale malt base. Wheat crackers, yeast, and lots of flowers. Good lemon zest and subtle grapefruit. Great stuff.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a bottle at the RBSG grand tasting, Thanks Beibers!
Pours a pale color with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is fruity and lemony, earthy & floral with some hay and light spice. It’s funky but very softly funky.
The flavor is dry with a nice bitterness. It’s lemony but only lightly tart. It’s got a nice floral bitter character that I assume is where the dandelions step in. There is some light bubblegum lingering in the background.
The beer is lively and champagne like on the palate.
PS, this is my 100th Saison rating... whoop di doo!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared at RBSG 2014. Thanks Biebers. Nose is funky and a barnyard hay. Pour is a hazy yellow. Taste is a tart and puckering hay and floral blend. A Ron of carbonation. Solid but would like it a bit more tame.
