Pour is hazed golden color with a tight white head. Nose has a strong floral note, faint honey, juicy notes and light sweetness. Taste is very nice, floral up front like Clara, juicy bright fruits as the well carbonated finish brings in the sweet honey balance. Very tight and balanced, nice dusty quality mid palate from the Saison yeast with an interesting sweetness of honey in the finish.

750ml bottle, generously sent over by Anthony. Poured into a Hill Farmstead stemmed glass today, 1/15/2014. This was actually drank after Double Galaxy, 4D, BB4D and a bunch of french-pressed BA beers.

Pours an absolutely stunning straw-yellow body, hazy with a strongly effervescent white head with a long, long retention and tons of lacing. This is a beer that is begging to be drank!

Smells so good- crisp, grape skins, wheaty, a dab of honey, peppercorns. This is smelling as complex as some of the Armand'4 geuzes, except its nowhere near as sour and intense.

Flavourwise- a nice clean tartness, sharp peppery spices, a nice honey-like sweetness and even a bit of citrus. Not as much as Brother Soigné, but delicious and very complex.

Very refreshing, medium bodied and well carbonated with a nice yeasty finish. Thoroughly refreshing and enjoyable. Could definitely drink this one over and over again- so drinkable and refreshing, without any characteristics that would make this a sipper at all.

One of the better saisons I've had from HF. I'd say that this is Brother Soigné without the extra citrus flavours- I may even appreciate the more subtle flavours here. It's just so damn good and refreshing; somewhere in between a lambic and a saison as all Hill Farmstead sours/saisons tend to be.
