375 bottling from shared CW membership. Cloudy yellow with a white foamy topping. Citrus and tangy at first, as it opens up some grass, hay, lemon, light oak, vinous, brett, white pepper, yeast, hint of aguava, booze undertones, full body, moderate carbonation, fairly smooth. Need to try and get this again (either same batch or different) as was told this bottle was a little different then previous batches. zvikar (10880) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - APR 7, 2018

750ml bottle into a Gandhi Bot snifter. *batch 2
A~ hazy golden orange with a lacing slight white head.
S~ citrus up front followed by pepper, bready yeast, and slight pineapple (almost like Juicy)
T~ **NOW! DO NOT DRINK THIS TOO COLD! definitely better as it warms! up front tart lemon with a tad of vinegar followed by peppery citrus saison yeast just like Arthur.
M~ very carbonated, smooth, kind of like champagne. also pretty dry.
O~ not exactly what i was expecting but still very delicious! HF saisons have to my favorite brew of all time, i probably say this a lot. Art is definitely not my favorite but still amazing. just remember to let it warm up before you drink it and you’ll be good!

Bottle, from b3shine, shared with my various tasting groups all together for my 10,000th rating. Thanks very much Beau! Hazy lemony yellow, lively white head. On the nose there is distinct acetic and herbal notes, with vinous undertones. Bright lively palate, with vinous and sour character sharing center stage, grappa-like tannins, dry and quenching. Excellent, a worthy beer for such a special occasion.

750 ml bottle shared by alagnak. The pour is a hazed orange golden with a smallish white head. The aroma is wine barrel, lactose, funk, citrus, and a soft bready malt. The taste is a really nice balance of the citrus notes, the bread malt, red wine notes and the funk lactose bright tart sour character. The palate is medium bodied with natural carbonation and a dry tart acidic finish. Nice one, thanks for holding on to this one for me and sharing Chris. Korcz (3388) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 4, 2017

From bottle at Dangerous Stressed Hardwork-Share. Pours an almost clear golden with a white head. Aroma has sick, leathery tannins, oak, vinous, syrah grapes, super complex, crisp and oaky as funk. Taste is sour, again super oaky, vanilla, spicy, delicate and tasty. High carbonation and a crisp, dry body. Lovely and complex! thepatrickman (1503) - Lewes, East Sussex, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2016
Bottle, saved from the release in May for the big 1,000 (!) Rate Beer check-in. hackobock (4073) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 21, 2016
Believe the hype. This,to me, is the pinnacle of what an obsessively crafted beer can taste like. Every element is executed brilliantly -- there’s a light touch of bready malt flavor, faint hop bitterness, and a cacophony of wine, cider, fruit, and funk flavors from the yeast and barrel aging -- but everything comes together in a beautiful balance. The mouthfeel stands out, with a light and dry opening that lasts surprisingly long, allowing the flavors to all linger. Very reminiscent of wine, with lots of tannin and bright fruit aromas. I can’t tell if I’m crying from how good this tastes or how sad I am that I’ll probably never drink it again.
May 12, 2016. Bottle at Hill Farmstead day at Warpigs.
Light hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is quite fruity, funky, vinous and herbal with lemon, gooseberries, grape skins, green apple, oak, minerals, hay, oak, white wine, some floral notes, grain and white pepper.
Taste is very light sweet, fruity and funky. Light to medium bodied, slightly dry, average carbonation. Finish is light sweet with peach, grain, tart lemon and gooseberries, some floral notes, dry notes of grape skins and oak, funk and white wine.
Less funk than Ann and more fruit and grain forward.
