4.2/5  rDev -3%

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.

Fruity on the nose with a sweet banana and ripened pear aroma. Notes of clove and spice with a bit of peppercorn the scent takes a doughy, malty turn. The flavor as a nice direction of honey, lemons and tea with some peppery taste. It's very light, sprite and bubbly on the tongue with a finish of Apple and pear. This really is what a Saison should be.

I am not a huge fan of Saisons, but this is a great example of the style and another amazing beer produced by Shaun Hill.
