look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Pours a slightly hazy golden-yellow with a big fluffy white head and a lot of bubbles floating to the top. Lots of carbonation.
S: Smell is that typical saison yeast aroma mixed with something else more earthy/grainy that I can't quite put my finger on and a little bit of sweetness. Definitely a little bit unique in the smell.
T: A little bit lemony, a little bit peppery and a little bit grainy with almost no sweetness at all to speak of. As I drink on, the graininess really becomes the dominant flavor. It's actually got a good amount of flavor considering such a low ABV, but I'm not blown away with it like I am with some of the other HF stuff.
M: Very light-bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Finishes very dry.
O: Another strong effort from Hill Farmstead, especially given that the style "grisette" is not one I've ever encountered before, but I don't think it measures up to some of the other HF saisons like Anna. It's still a nice, flavorful, light, easy drinking beer, however, and there's always a place for something like that in this world.
