The aroma has bright hay funk and lemons. A touch of white wine.

The aroma is better than the flavor. It hits of light lemon tart, a decent tart throughout with a wheaty body and a touch of floral honey. Lots of lemony white wine.

Surprisingly, this was less tart than Florence. Unfortunately, one of the most disappointing of HF's saisons.

incredible nose, big wine and french oak characteristics. a little light on base beer flavors but as it warmed up it got a lot more robust. overall another fantastic offering from HF and right up there with the other BA saisons/farmhouse ales

Re rated 11/29/14. Pour is a completely transparent golden color with a tight white that lingers for a bit. Nose is juicy, bright clean grape flavors, light oak, hints of pepper, faint dustiness. Taste is similar, very strong bright grape flavors, a bit sweet, moderate oak and vanilla, a decent pepper note. Well carbonated, light sourness, soft feel and consistent body.

Less boring than Le Serrasin (or however you spell it), but still really boring.
