4.2/5  rDev -3.2%

750 ml bottle poured into a wine glass. Bottled May 2014. 6.5% ABV

Appearance: Pours straw yellow with 3 fingers of a white soapy head with nice retention. Body is hazy but still translucent, with some light visible carbonation.

Smell: Peppery yeast, honey, wheat, grass, slightly herbal, hint of citrus and funk.

Taste: Pear, tart citrus, peppercorns, wheat, honey, lemongrass. Not sour at all, but with a nice low/medium tartness throughout.

Mouthfeel: Light medium bodied with a somewhat soft mouthfeel and medium lively carbonation. Finishes dry and lightly tart.

Overall: Another great saison from Hill Farmstead. Well worth seeking out.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A- Pale straw colored body with just the slightest hint of haze to it. Thick, foamy bone-white head.

S- White pepper, bready yeast, dash of sweet honey, some toasty grains.

T- Sweet lemony flavor cuts through the toasted grain and the earthy yeast. Not a ton in the way of honey, but there is some definite sweetness. More of a citrus quality to it for me.

M- Light, bubbly, tons of flavor with a sweet, tingly aftertaste.

O- Another nice saison from HF, but I do not get much honey. More of a lemony sweetness to it.
