750ml bottle. Cloudy yellow. Lots of white foam. Aroma is lemon zest, floral, grassy. Delicate but powerful and satisfying. Taste is not excessively dry, as I thought it might be. There is a slight sweetness here. Not quite as good as I was hoping it might be but displays HF’s usual class and balance. cards04 (2917) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 26, 2015
Thank you so much b3shine for this generous gift. I am forever in your debt. This beer just screams simplicity, elegance, and sophistication. Pours a nice lemon yellow with crazy mountains of pillow soft white head. Aromas are sweet Belgian yeast and juicy pineapple. A beautiful sour edge to this.. Funk, white wine, Belgian candy, such a good saison. BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle Share: Hazy golden hue and okay fluffly head. Notes of lemon, slight barnyard, biscuit, herbs, touch of pine and citrus and some minerally earth tones. I nice Saison but I must say I hoped to be floored and that did not happen. jc1762 (1608) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 15, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2016 Poured into a taster glass showing cloudy straw yellow with a finger of fluffy clean white foam.
The nose shows slight bretty and lemon notes with a farmhouse background.
The palate is light bodied, moderately but sharply tart, highly carbonated with flavors of lemon zest and very little farmhouse flavor. There’s a slight spice on the palate and a pilsner-like bitterness at the end. kbudd19 (1022) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle shared with my wife sent to me from Tom10101, thanks man! Yellow hazy colour with lively white head. Aroma is tart citrus funk, white grapes, and grass. Taste is lemon zest, followed by light funk, then a citrus lemongrass burst. Finishes dry, medium mouthfeel, plenty of carbonation. Fantastic stuff, tons of juicy citrus flavour, very refreshing and a pleasure to drink.

Bottle, pours orange with white head. Aroma is light tart and yeast. Taste is more tart than i expected, really tasty veronneaupy (241) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 17, 2015
Au nez, on sent les fruits tropicaux sûrs. Fruits de la passion, mangue, ananas et des agrumes ressortent accompagnés de levures. En bouche, c'est très intense sur le bout et cotés de la langue. Surette, mais pas trop, la levure est bien présente toujours secondée par tous ces fruits. La finale s'estompe plus rapidement que ce à quoi je m'attendais. Très fine et agréable. C'est une autre biere d'exception de Russian River!
