750ml bought at the brewery a month or two ago. Split with the Honey. Bottle dated 5-2014.
Appearance - Poured into a Russian River stemmed glass. Color is hazy golden yellow, plenty of carbonation bubbles, white head retains well and leaves excellent lacing.
Smell - Great farmy yeast, lemon, tart citrusy fruits, grain, light funky cheese and oak.
Taste - Maybe slightly less potent than the scent but still very nice. Farm, light sweaty funk, bretty tones, lemon, pineapple, pear, generally citrusy. Big yeasty grainy bready presence. Touch of herbal hop. Oaky vanilla.
Mouthfeel - What you should be looking for in a saison: Light, zesty carbonation, crisp, light-medium tartness, refreshing and very drinkable. Kinda flemmy.
Overall - Great, some nice gueuze-like qualities but still a saison at heart. Good balance of flavors and solid all around. Probably one of the better Belgian-style ales from HF for me.
