look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: The beer pours out with a ton of foam and as the liquid materializes it is a cloudy honey color; the whipped egg white head persists at length, leaving copious amounts of lace behind

Smell: Slightly funky, slightly floral and slighty earthy, the yeast drives the aromatics

Taste: As with the aroma, the yeast has a big impact on the palate; cantaloup and green tea, up front, with a growing lemony character that appears in the middle; the finish is a bit fruity, a bit grassy and somewhat dry

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with high carbonation

Overall: Hill Farmstead's saisons compete with the best of Belgium; I cannot really identify the spelt character in this beer but the flavor profile is complex and enjoyable, while the mouthfeel is light and airy
