Sweet tarts. Subtly tart. Light. Lemon. Pepper. Really good. Tasted at chris bottle share.
Clear golden pour from bottle. Big white head. Slightly bready herbal yeasty saison aroma with a hint of sour funk. Taste is delicate herbal yeast up front then quickly get abbot tart and citrus lemon freshness. Finish has some light malt and lemon. Huge thank you to dlovell2 for this awesome gift.

At Hopishop’s B.U.M.B. tasting, one of Hill Farmstead’s better known beers, a farmhouse ale with bubbly, moussy, snow white, frothy, well-retaining head and clear yellow blonde robe with warmer ’old gold’ hue. Aroma of moldy lemon, soggy white bread, freshly whipped sour cream, sourdough, damp hay, something sulfuric not unlike cooked green cabbage, fresh valerian flowers, stale urine even, pickled gherkins. Fruity, estery onset, lots of gooseberry, hints of lime, cucumber, unripe melon and yellow plum, soft sourness, softish carbo, fluffy, supple mouthfeel, soft malt sweetish core, bit bready, bit soapy as well, tartness increasing in the finish, drying, crisp, spicy hop note with soft bittering effect, quenching. The sulfuric hint in the nose bothered me a little bit at first, but this is an interesting ’wild’ ale in many respects, complex and quenching with a very pleasant mouthfeel; still I have the feeling it is the very limited distribution of these beers that are responsible for the hype surrounding this brewery, rather than the quality of the beers themselves, though the ones I tasted so far were all tasty and interesting.

At Hopishop 2016. Aroma of brett, grain and yeast. Taste has yeast, brett, citrus and soft grain. Nice tasty brett saisin, but rather overhyped on here. Jorn69 (3156) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2016

Tap @ mikkeller and friends. Pours a golden colour beer with a medium head. Fruity with citrus, yeast and notes of spices. Dry finish BrettGT (202) - Aalborg, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2016
DH Cascade @ Mikkeller Bar. Aroma of hay, tart orange, lemon, barn, blanket.
Pours a relatively clear golden with a dense white head that lasts well.
Taste is more complex with brett character, fruity tartness, hay and barnyardy notes. Medium light bitterness and light to medium sweetness.
Medium body, average carbonation, slightly creamy mouthfeel, brett finish and a some bitterness. Nice stuff but would have wished for more Cascade character in the aroma.
