A traditional farmhouse ale made with a very expressive yeast strain that contributes an array of tropical fruit, spice flavors and aromatics. Brewed with a variety of harvest grains including barley, wheat, oats and rye as was likely the case with farmhouse brewers of yore. The result is a complex, refreshing and distinctive example of this esoteric style. Intensely fruity (passion fruit, pineapple, mango, lychee), slightly spicy (clove, white pepper)

hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2015
Bottle... Pours clear and yellow with a large, fluffy, white head. Excellent retention. The bouquet features pale malts and yeast-driven spiciness and fruitiness - white pepper, clove, pear and stone fruits. Medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor is bright, fruity and spicy, followed by a snappy, hoppy, lightly bitter finish that dries out a touch. Nice Saison. This brewer wrote the book on them - literally.

damzz (445) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Pours a hazy pils yellow with a whote head that quickly dissipates leaving no lacing. The aroma is faint yeast and malt. The palate is medium body. Taste is a spicy citrus. 12 oz bottle I appreciate a low gravity saison. Anyway, if it was brewed for the workers, why do it at high gravity? Appears self-defeating or this a modern take on it?

MartinT (9191) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Important cloves and bubblegum smear honey-laced straw before herbal hops conclude each sip.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the misty pale straw.
-The soft prickling of carbonation could be more expansive (for the style).
-The cloves are quite intense in the nose.
-Drinkability remains high throughout.

On tap at the brewery taproom.

Direct from bootle in MacBoost’s car on way back from Hill Farmstead. Big banana, bubble gum nose. Lemon zest, banana, clove and a little spiceyness. Dry finish. Not bad.

Bottle. Clear gold with a thick foamy white head. Aroma is floral, oat and clove. Taste adds pineapple, mango, banana and pepper. Medium-thin mouthfeel and light carb. Complex but very drinkable.
