3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Erupted as soon as I opened my bottle so I lost a quarter of it right from the start.. Appearance was Orange with a slight haze, alot of sediment floating around due to the eruption, big 3 finger white head.
Smell wasFunky, brett, lemon and tart. Taste was 1st Orange, lemon, wine and oaky bread, and a slight tart. Not as tart as the nose would suggest.Medium mouthfeel, moderate carbonation.
Average Saison when you compare it to other HF ones. It was a gusher, have a glass ready. It is not the whale that some are suggesting it is.
(Une bouteille à la source): Agrumes sauvages bien mûres, pêche et un aspect vin orange légèrement épicé. La texture vineuse glisse sur la langue mais reste aérien et souple. À la hauteur des attentes. jsquire (4624) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 29, 2017
Attractive amber with a frothy off white head. This isn't my thing. The nose hints at some funk. The taste is bad orange juice and pickle juice. RichTheVillan (8325) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2017
Bottle during HF tick fest; hazy amber pour with a thin off white head, aroma has sour and tropical fruit action, taste has smooth tropical fruits, mellow sour hit. pushkinwow (2910) - Ottawa, CANADA - SEP 11, 2017
On tap at FoFA 2017, believe it was B2. Hazy copper pour with an off white head. Funky lemon, oak, grass, orange rind, papaya and mango pulp, light chardonnay, moderate carbonation and full body, floral and some passionfruit, some brett and just a heck of a lot going on. Delicious. MartinT (10102) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 5, 2017
My Bottom Line:
MacBoost (1950) - Victor, New York, USA - JUL 28, 2017
Earthy tea, oranges and smoky phenolics meet deep funk in this memorable Barrel-Aged Wild Ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the hazy amber.
-Oxidation (voluntary, I presume) takes away from the advertised juiciness.
-Moderate acidity is pleasant.
-Citrus fruit character plays second violin, surprisingly.

Pours an orange hue. Huge tropical hop and funk aroma. Some must and funk. Tart and funky as fuck. Jesus, this is god tier. Here’s your fucken cred.

375ml bottle poured into a Dogfish snifter.
A~ glowing orange hazy amber, with minimal smooth head.
S~ peppery, pineapple, lemon, lime with a great wine aged fragrance on the finish.
T~ straight pineapples up front with the mouthfeel of pineapple juice kind of like 5GR without the booze. nice funk, peppery saison, and amazing bitterness from the hops on the finish,
M~ smooth with perfect carbonation in my opinion. a lot like the texture of pineapple juice.
O~ incredible! HF never cease to amaze me with their saisons and wilds, every time i drink one i want to try another. at this point its safe to say they are my favorite brewery.
Draft at the source. 2016 vintage. Pours hazy dark gold with an off-white head. Aroma of white wine, fruit, funk. oak. Taste follows nose with some peach and melon notes. Finish is mildly tart and quite complex. Amazing.
