revisiting this beer 3/31/2014!
750ml bottle sealed with pressure cap.
bottle date of 11/2013
poured into HF wine stem.
Appearance: transclucent pale yellow bodied beer with large white head. Sticky lacing left behind on the side of the glass. Head has alot of staying power drops to a thin cap that never goes away.
Smell: Mild tartness white grapes, pears, and lemons. Crackery / biscuity / bready malts. Hint of honey sweetness and black pepper. Yeasty.
Taste: Almost moderately tart; I would say a 4/10. Lemons, green apples, and white grapes. Fruity, peppery, and yeasty. Wild honey notes adds bit of sweetness to the crackery, wheaty, and pale malt profile. A hint of musty and dusty funk. The beer tastes bright and clean. Complex and nuanced saison!
Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Crisp and clean. Refreshing and driness is noted in the finish. Extremely drinkable. Carbonation is nearly flawless.
Overall: Revisting this beer was great! I have really been enjoying alot of saisons lately and I have wanted to have this beer again since its the first Hill Farmstead saison that I have drank. And we all know that HF saisons are always fantastic! A perfect example of what a saison is in this beer style! This beer is an example of what all saisons should strive to be!
Revised overall score-4.50

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.

2L growled poured into a Hill Farmstead glass.
Pours a nice, light, crisp golden amber color with a small white head.the nose is yeasty, fruity, a bit tart an sweet.
Taste is really well done. It's dry and sharp and crisp - a bit sweet from the honey but it's suble. There's a nice bitter/tart taste that's really crisp. Delicious!

Thanks for sharing this, Cavery!
Slightly hazed golden yellow and light amber with a pillowy, light, cloudy white head that leaves lines and dots of lacing down the glass.
Very nice aroma of citrus, namely lemon, bready and pale malts, interesting Belgian style yeast, and also a bit of spice and herbs.
The flavor is very nice balanced between bready pale malts, a bit of bright lemon citrus, and slightly musty, slightly tangy Belgian yeast.
Medium mouthfeel, crisp, with high carbonation. Incredibly light and airy--fantastically drinkable.
A superb saison. I would love to have the opportunity to drink more and more of this.
