Thanks to pete for this HF bottle!
750ml bottle sealed with pressure cap. bottled on date of 01/2014.
poured into HF wine stem.
Appearance: Translucent and glowing yellow bodied beer with massive and fluffy bone white head. The head has a lot of staying power and leave a heavy yet spotty lacing.
Smell: Grainy and bready malts. Fruity and yeasty aroma. Smells like it would have a light tartness. Hint of white pepper.
Taste: Mild tartness in the form of lemon and granny smith green apples. A light bitterness that is floral, grassy, and earthy. Bready and grainy malts with a hint of wet hay funk. Hint of pepper and orange zest. Getting some pears too. I might be detecting some brett notes in this beer as well. As the beer warms up the tartness, funk, and white pepper become very prominent, but remain in balance during the entire drink.
Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with low almost moderate carbonation levels. Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel too it. Carbonation is creamy. This beer is so drinkable as well.
Overall: Hill Farmstead saisons are fricking amazing. This one is no exception. The tartness really adds depth to the flavor profile of this beer. I could drink this beer by the gallons and never get bored. This beer is very much reminiscent of Dupont Saison.

$12.99 32 ounce growler pour from DeCicco's in Ardsley, NY.
Pours a dull shade of amber with a tangerine hue, clouded, with plenty of bubbles rising to the top. Head is loose, moderate, and tiny bubbles. Nice looking sheeting, with webs of lacing rise from the collar to the top of the glass.
Fruity, earthy and some peppery spice picked up in the nose.
Fresh, zesty and fully flavorful saison. More pepper, fruity, some grassyness with a kick of Belgian yeasty goodness.
More high quality and well worth seeking out brew from Hill Farmstead.

Poured from a bottle into a wine glass. Had after Vera Mae and this is good but not like HF's other offerings. Smells slightly farmhousey, tastes like a somewhat watered down version of the style, not a ton of flavor. Good, but more like a lager or witbier than a saison. I prefer HF's other offerings more.

Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.
Appearance: 1 inch head, straw yellow in color, clear, high carbonation
Smell: light apples, straw, and florals—really appealing smell—very spring like
Taste: light apples, straw, grape, and florals
Mouthfeel: high carbonation, super light bodied, sweet
Overall: Very light, faint, and super flavorful. A delicate beer that is a masterpiece. I have yet to be disappointed by a Hill beer and this is right with the best of them. I could drink this every day. A friend of mine who I gave some to said this tasted like a fine Champaign and I tend to agree.

2 liter pop-top growler poured into a Hill Farmstead wine glass. The growler is really nice, as is the glass.
Pours a hazy amber color that's like a pale apricot. It's got a fairly small white head with some light lacing. Nose is funky fresh fruit. Apricots are here, and some nice Belgian yeast.
Taste is very fresh and fruity, also get that apricot taste here (seeing a theme?). Mouthfeel is nice and full, creamy and rich. Light carbonation is perfect for the style. This is one of the best saisons I've ever had, no idea how Shaun does it but keep it up!
