On tap at Max’s during Belgian Beer Fest 2013. Served in a Max’s tulip glass. Nose is hefty wheat and a bit of lemon. Slight saison yeast expression behind. Super crisp flavor with loads of wheat and lemon. Very dry.

This beer is nice and light yet has a good flavor. The saison style is well crafted in this beer.

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?

Exactement mon genre de remède à une soif excessive. Des notes acidulées bien en place pour une parfaite sécheresse, juste assez dans toutes les facettes.

Hazy golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, spices, wheat, grass, and toast. Taste of some toasty malts, tart wheat, lemon, spices, and a grassy bitterness in the finish.

Crisp refreshing and nice saison. Light lemon and spices with very very mild tartness and very light hops. Easy drinking as all get up!
