Bottle poured in a GI tulip

A - Hazy, golden color with a very frothy two finger head. This leaves a lot of nice lacing as it goes down. Quite a nice looking Saison.

S - Smells of sweet banana, lemon, oak, slight vinegar and a slight grassy farmhouse funk

T - Initally tart lemon and slight vinegar come through. As the beer goes, the beer starts to get funky with grass, farmhouse funk and a slight blue cheese. The finish is slightly tart with a lingering oak.

MF - Medium carbonation with a creamy smooth body. Slightly astringent in the finish and a tingle remains on the tongue.

O - Solid, sour and funky Saison that reminds me of a more tart version of Orval. My first HF Saison and can understand why people get excited over them.

My second HF beer. The first beer Rarl was terrific. This one was rather ordinary. Funky saison yeast. Generous retained head on hazy golden coloured body. Above average mouthfeel. Funky, yeasty taste, pepper. Dry bitter finish. Decent drinkability but it took many sips. Thanks Steve S.

750ml bottle into a Cantillon tulip. Bit of a slow gusher. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a massive, 3 finger foamy white head with excellent retention. Beer is clear goldenrod. Lacing is patchy and thick with excellent cling. Couldn't ask for more.

Nose is yeast, band-aid, lemon rind, coriander, flower petals and a slight tartness. Aromatic with big funk notes. Clean, crisp and very refreshing with the exact flavors I expect from the style.

Opens slightly tart citrus and lemon peel. Coriander and other spices in the back along with some floral notes. Touch of yeastiness at the middle with band-aid and cobweb. Spicy finish with a yeasty and sharply funky aftertaste. Refreshing and very complex. Really enjoyable.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Light, fluffy and clean in the mouth and goes down refreshing. Accented finish with a mellow aftertaste. Really solid.

Hill Farmstead's Saison's are almost on the same level as their pale ales... that is, world class. Art is no different. A super solid beer all the way around. Definitely recommended.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Batch 2. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Big white head. Hazy yellow orange. Excellent retention. Very nice lacing.

Smell - Spicy. Sweet malt makes its way through. Brett? Not sure. A touch of wine. Yeasty.

Taste - Brett comes through a lot here. Wine much more prevalent also. Pepper and a little acidic in the finish. A touch of pale malt sweetness and even a little bit bitter.

Mouthfeel - Dry, except for the wine sweetness. Well carbonated.

Overall - Really nice. Lots of complexity. Never had Arthur but I look forward to it now.
