A gusher at a tasting.

A - great lacing as the huge white head falls. Body is very light grapefruit color which is decently cloudy.

S - some orange and lemon but mostly light funk. A little dusty.

T - light wheat and some rye. All the flavors are very light. Some flowery notes.

M - So light on the mouth. Little carbonation noted.

O - very nice beer that would be good on a summers day. Simple and light.

Poured into a tasting glass. This is light straw color with just a touch of haze. There is so much foam I cannot possibly pour in one swoop (into two glasses). There is a ton of sticky lacing.

The aroma is full of peppery yeast and slightly sweet candy sugar. There is some nice malty aroma to round out the floral aroma.

The taste is very floral, and reminds me of a lavender saison I had from Stillwater. This starts out dry and bitter, with a slightly sweet candy finish with a touch of pepper.

The body is light to medium with soft but spicy carbonation.

I like this one a lot. Hill Farmstead's saisons are among my favorites.
