This was a beer fueled by the yeast. A nice saison with a yeasty bready palate. Lukaduke (3206) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAY 13, 2014

On tap at the brewery. Pours cloudy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of floral hops, light fruits especially apple and banana in a good way, and pale malts. Flavor about the same. Average texture. A good saison. rocbyter (2124) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - APR 17, 2013
Sweet light malt and strong stinky yeast aroma. Hazy golden color with a large white head. Mild sweet beginning with a moderate bitter yeast finish. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2013
In short: A yeasty and slightly spicy blond Belgian ale with a refreshing wheaty flavor. Good beer.tom10101 (6088) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 20, 2012
How: Growler shared by Ernesto at post-HF Harvest 2012 party.
The look: Cloudy yellow-blond body topped by a medium white head with medium retention.
In long: Nose is lemony and wheaty with a certain yeastiness sensation. Taste is loaded with wheaty cereals, smooth wheaty acidity, dried straws, a bit grainy, some lemon zest, strong yeasty presence, light banana bread notes, mild spicy notes (coriander and such). Description doesn’t say if this beer is wheat-based but it sure tasted like it is, actually I thought it was more of a corpulent yeasty witbier than a Saison. Not much of a Saison character to this beer other than a light dusty attic sensation, even the attenuation is only medium. Pretty decent easy drinking beer, whatever it was. Another growler shared in the improvised campground next to the Hill Farmstead brewery, and a long week-end camping in a countryside field, reconnecting with the nature, breathing fresh air, no internet connection, sleeping under the stars and drinking beers with friends makes you realize what’s really important in life… internet connection.
Growler shared at HF Harvest Festival. Thanks to Reynolds314 and Ernesto987 for this one! Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of spice, lemon, saison yeast and earthy notes. Taste of fruits, lemon, spices and saison yeast. High drinkability. Good Saison! Reynolds314 (3450) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Nice sharp musty saison with earthy spicyness and a nice citrus bite. Dry finish and rich mouthfeel. Good stuff.
