Growler sent by Avalon, thanks Frank. Pours a light slightly hazed light straw yellow with thin whispy white head. Dry peppery grain, slight hay, kiss of lemon and cotton candy, very faint sulfur...but really the nose is very reserved. Grainy, oats, white pepper, hint of lemon, maybe light green apple, bit of sulfur linger in the finish. Very drinkable and would be nice with food, wish the carb was a bit livelier.

Nose of light fruit wheat rye orange hay. Hazy yellow pour thin white head. Lemon fruit hay wheat rye light hop presence. Sweet but dry finish. Light and pleasant. Really drinkable.

dmac (4625) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Draft at the brewpub during the Hand Farm release. Poured a clear gold body with a creamy and dense bright white head. Aroma of yeast, lemons, white pepper, wet bread and a touch of spicyness that lingers. Thin to medium body with average carbonation and an average duration on the afertaste. Flavor starts off with slight lemon and citrus rind followed by soft white pepper notes along with spice and finishes with wet bread. This is solid but I’d take Hop Hands over this any day.

From the tap poured a hazy straw color with a good amount of head. Light spicy malty flavor with a quick finish.

julian (30) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Very authentic, rustic saison. Mild sulfuric aroma, some sweet belgian yeasty goodness, doughy malt, earthy spiciness, very reminiscent of Upright Seven. Taste follows suit, earthy, doughy, spicy, citrusy, with a faint black pepper taste on the finish. This drinks incredibly easily. Could drink this fo days! Excellent!

Draft at the brew pub. Pours clear yellow with a medium sized white head. The aroma has some belgian yeast notes, lemon zest, and a little spice. The taste is very light, lemon, dry finish. Very nice.
