4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
In short: A crisp and dry blonde Saison with a fresh countryside character. Great thirst beer
How: Tap at Hill Farmstead Farmhouse Saison Festival 2012
The look: Cloudy yellow body topped by a medium white head
In long: Nose is bright, fresh, rustic, a walk in a countryside field, flowers notes. Taste is clean, bright, honeyed grainy fresh cereals, flower petals, nice rustic character, crisp wheat, chewing of hay and sun dried wild flowers from a countryside field, herbal hoppy notes. A little honey on the attack but overall rather dry from start to finish. Body never feels thin despite the 4%. A classic thirst Saison, and at 4% this is one you can enjoy by the pints. I’m sold to this type of thirst beer so I’m probably overrating it. Another great Saison I had at the Hill Farmstead Saison Festival, and my wife says she feels like I totally forget about her when I’m at a beer festival with so lots of awesome beers… what the f... I’m married?
