A: Super hazy, bright, golden-yellow with a massive, fizzy, bright white head. Leaves behind a ton of lace and nice lumps of foam on top of this beautiful liquid.
S: This is what Vermont smells like on a warm Spring day. Bright, floral, yeasty, barny, earthy, minerally (?), effervescent. Flowers, honey, and lush meadows are scenes in my mind with every huge whiff I take.
T: Yeasty, barny, earthy. You get some of the honey flavor and texture when the beer warms up. Such a delicious beer from cold to warm, start to finish. Refreshing, bright, and floral. Superb.
M: The feel, the body, and the carbonation are absolutely perfect. No hyperbole there.
O: The essence of the style. Vermont Farmhouse Ale. No other American brewer that I know of can either match or exceed the qualities and characteristics of the finest Belgian Saisons/Farmhouse Ales.

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.
