I decided to drink a whole bottle of this tonight. Second time I'm having E., first time I'm reviewing it. 2012 vintage, I bought it at the brewery last August.
A- Like most beers that I've had by Hill Farmstead, it has quite the head on it. Not nearly as much as the first time I had this, but I still had to pour pretty slowly to minimize it. It's a bit cloudy, and golden-orange in color.
S- Smells delicious. The first scent I get is peach to be honest, followed by orange and more citrusy fruits. The aroma has some hops to it as well, but they have definitely died down in the 7 or so months this had been aging. It has a nice floral scent as well, like fresh picked flowers almost. Just a great, sweet aroma.
T- It has more hops to it than I initially thought it would, but once that dies down that fruitiness really comes in. Peach, pineapple, orange, and those are just to name a few. It's slightly tart, but I definitely would not consider this a sour. It definitely is not as sour as most of their other saisons.
M- Loads of carbonation on this one. It almost slightly gets in the way of the flavor because there is so much happening on your tongue.
O- This is just another amazing saison by Hill Farmstead. They are by far one of my favorite breweries, if not my absolute favorite. I have to admit that the first time I had E. I wasn't overly impressed with it, but it really has aged nicely. It's my least favorite saison by Hill Farmstead, and I'm still giving it a great rating. Goes to show how good their stuff is. I'm going to finish this one, Happy Easter everyone and God Bless.
