Bottled the week of Halloween 2013. Picked this one up around than and has been in my fridge hanging out till now. Happy I finally popped this one open. AWESOME stuff!
A-Nice golden hued body. Mild haze. Nice two finger fluffy head with good retention and great lacing.
S-Very mild smell. Dank, pepper, citrus(lemon).
T-The taste is where this beer shines. The aroma is almost to subtle but the flavor makes up for that. This beer is all about the yeast. Thats where it is getting those great esters and dryness. Starts off sweet and has almost a tartness to it. A little spice in the middle of the palate and finish. The tart/sour taste is in the finish and lingers pleasantly on the tongue.
M-Medium/thin. Dry finish. Saison Perfect.
O-A excellent saison. The mouthfeel is spot on with a good carb and the taste with that sour/tart finish is awesome. This is a very unique yeast that did a beautiful job turning this wart into a all around enjoyable, thirst quenching brew. If you are fortunate enough to go to Hill Farmstead and even more fortunate to be there when this is on tap/bottled get your self some! You will not be disappointed!

$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!
