750ml bottle, consumed on the same day as Anna. The pour yields a lightly hazy, beautiful golden body that shines brightly in the light and shows consistently streaming micro-bubbles. A short but steadfast blanket of creamy, snow-white foam sits at the head, giving tissue-thin, tattered sheets of lace to the glass. The nose is masterfully simple, based in über-fresh malted grain with dry, peppery, floral yeast and crisp notes of grassy hops. Like in Anna, there is a suggestion of wet hay or straw that lends a bit of farmhouse character, but missing is her subtle honey kiss and wildflower complexity. This one is more classic saison. Flavors follow the nose, crisp and snappy, biting grass bitterness showing atop a base of fresh cereal, hay, and dried bread. White pepper and other dry spice show in the yeast profile. The palate is dry as a bone, laced with lively carbonation that quickly clears away what little residuals the fully-attenuated, moderate body leaves behind. Damn fine beer. Not quite the showstopper that Anna is, but an excellent example of a straight-up, classic saison. Close your eyes and you’re instantly transported back in time to the fields of Wallonia.

Pours an unclear sunny golden colour with a large white head. Aroma has very crispy sour citrus. Lemons, light grassy notes and the HF footprint. Taste is light and citric. Very light and lemony saison without many yeasty esters which is nice I think. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Lightly bitter finish, citrussy aftertaste.

Hazy light gold pour, light off-white head Aroma is slightly biotic, some white grape juice. Flavor is both fruity and sour, fruity aspects reminds me of scuppernong grapes with the sourness reminiscent of Sweet Tarts candy and a hint of vinegar. Nice puckerable qualities. Nice textured mouthfeel with the right amount of spritz. Thanks to Jame for the bottle share at Proof. Aurelius (5659) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 17, 2017
Misty blonde, small white head. Wine bottle, OK label. Biotic, slightly tart aroma - quite nice. A little tart, understated, not bitter. Lightish body, light effervescence. Solid. Thanks to Jme down at Proof.
