On tap at Novare Red, Portland, Maine. A yellow, unclear beer with a small white head leaving curtains. It’s quite fruity on the nose, with some grains. Citrusy and lightly flowery. It’s dry, medium bodied and with a high but nice carbonation level. There’s an appropriate bitterness in the flavor, it’s fruity and lightly grainy. Lasting finish. A thirst quenched. Easy drinkable. 150609

Clean finish, lightly bitter, with further hay, citrus peel and restrained, biscuity pale malt sugars. Great balance, super drinkable. Great.

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?
