Old review. 2L growler consumed Spring 2011.

Pours a hazy golden amber color with an off white head that slowly fades to a thin collar. Spicy and fruity aroma of yeast esters, bread, ripe fruit, pepper and clove. Full bodied and well carbonated, slightly bitter in the finish. Flavor has a strong toasted and rye base, spicy and estery, with some light fruitiness providing sweetness before a floral bitter finish. A pleasant BdG.

Growler, which was poured into a tulip.

It has a nice amber color with some orange cloudiness and thin white head. The smell has sweet malts, some spices such as pepper and clove, a small amount of funk going on here. Sipping this and I taste sourdough bread, belgian candy, white pepper and dark fruits. MF is easy going, with a bitterness in the end that lingers. This is a pretty good BdG, but not one of the better offerings from HF IMHO.

Thanks to weeare138 for the chance to try this.

A deep red/golden brown shade with white head w/ low retention. The body is hazed without any laces sticking. A good amount of Belgian yeast esters -light fruit and mild scent of spice w/ subtle hop odor and mild notes of pear. the feel is moderately smooth with toasted grain and carbonation is moderate w/ light bitter and slightly herbal tinged w/ moderately bitter finish.

The Biere De Mars is kind of a unique beer w/ good malt and yeast cohesion and slight hop presence with an herbal flavor that gives mild element of pear from the yeast and the malt has a toasted quality w/ mild spice from the hops and yeast in the finish which is relatively dry. I enjoyed this overall -not the strongest beer in Hill Farmstead's repertoire, but overall a pretty high quality take on the style.

Described as a red saison brewed for March.

Pours a slightly hazy, amber/ruby color with a half finger off-white head that slowly fades into a thin ring. Sporadic spots of lace left behind.

Earthy spicy aroma with touches of sweet malt and dark fruit. Slightly bready with hints of zesty pepper, clove and booze as well as some rye and caramel.

Medium bodied with a very prominent spice flavor that lingers into a long dry finish. Earthy and pretty bitter with a stronger alcohol presence than I prefer alongside the zesty pepper, corriander, clove flavors. There is some sweet malt and dark fruit flavor but the alcohol and spice notes dominate. A bit too one-dimensional and hot for my liking but not bad.
