Huge, huge thanks to sisuspeed for opening this bottle at the Rosso release. Served in a SAVOR snifter.

Pours a mild straw color with a really nice, fluffy white head that sticks around for quite a bit of time. Really nice lacing as it goes down. The nose is really nice with some complex earthy funk as well as grain and hay plus a touch of oak. Funk keeps coming, and also brings a hint of white grapes and mild stone fruit. The flavor is along the same lends, blending the funk with the base malt well and adding in slight fruit complexity. Mildly sweet feel is fairly light with a nicely dry finish. Really fantastic. Thanks again, John.

Poured into a Hill Farmstead glass, revealing three fingers of thick white head over a slightly hazy light golden body. Very pretty. Smells sweet and funky with a little fresh corn, wet hay and sunshine. Definite barrel presence on the nose.

Tastes smooth with sweet, toothsome, light maltiness and a hint of lemony freshness. A touch fruity, good barrel presence. Nice saison yeast spices. Crisp well water comes through on the clean finish. Mouthfeel is silky with a fine-nucleating carbonation that adds to the creamy but light mouthfeel. Very drinkable. Alcohol is not noticeable at all until you feel it in your head.

Overall I really like this one. Very light, refreshing, and perfect for the summer days.
