Bottle at my USA Going Away Party. Imagine my surprise when someone brought out this, years after it was released. It’s an interesting bottle of beer -- it starts off smelling like it’s going to be sharp and sour, but the flavor is briefly barnyard before becoming earthy and mellow. This held up well. skrip (228) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2017
750ml bottle poured into a Jester King Zwanze Day tulip.
A~ glowing, cloudy neon yellow with a nice head and a good amount of lacing.
S~ reminds me of some of the greatest HF saisons. pineapple/citrus of Mimosa and Juicy, white/black pepper of Arthur, Wheat like presence of Clara and Florence, sweetness of Anna and Vera Mae and amazing oak characteristics of Flora and Norma (yeah... yeah... i know haha) lots of citrus up front followed by tons of bready white pepper all trapped in a chardonnay barrel, conditioned on apples.
T~ yup! pretty much follows the nose, way more oak and wine presence here. starts out with peppery saison yeast followed by apples, citrus, and a roasted pumpkin/gourd thing going on. definitely not your traditional "pumpkin" brew. oaky wine barrel funkness on the finish that sticks with you!
M~ perfect feel and carbonation for a saison (wild?) really smooth and surprisingly perfect on this cold night.
O~ the oak/wine tartness definitely takes away from the pumpkin which seems to be this brews only downfall but like i said this definitely isn’t your traditional pumpkin beer. even in the Timmermans Pumpkin Lambic there are a ton of spices added which totally isn’t the case here. its there but i would like a little more. other than that, this is fantastic. theres so much going on but you can easily pick out whats what, something Shaun seems to be too good at. finally a "new" 750 from HF which i’m guessing means they have quite a bit. heres to hoping it sticks around for a little while! cheers!

Bottle, by way of trade with Leighton. Big thanks! Clear gold, with the option of big murk, given the sediment in the bottom. Thin, super dense, lacing, lasting head. Looks the business. Nose has old, wet wood. Fruity brett. Lemon and orange peel. Hint of the saline and savoury. Background of the cider barrel. Taste is fairly sweet and sticky, turning straight away dry and slightly acidic. Hint of sourness. Mouthfeel is beautifully soft and smooth. Super easy drinking. Light sourness on the finish, tempered by the fruity, yeasty, woody sweetness. Lovely. Pinball (12264) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2015

Bottled - Thanks Shaun and Ryan for this. A hazy amber beer with a lazing yellowish head. The aroma has notes of brett, pumpkin, straw, and malt. The flavor is sweet with an acidic edge, and notes of brett, malt, fruits, pumpkin, and straw, leading to a tart finish. Desverger (12610) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2015

Hazy amber colored with a medium sized white head.
Fruity and light acidic aroma of peaches with notes of barnyard.
