Bottle poured into my Hill Farmstead glass on a lovely summer day. Bottle opens with a sinister hiss.

A: A soft pour yields a transparent straw yellow gold body with three fingers of white sea foam that recede in craters and caverns after five minutes. Thick sheets of soapy lacing are all over the glass. This beer looks fantastic.

S: Earthy and lightly musty, with bright notes of apple, pineapple, and pear. Tangerine is most pronounced, with a light tangelo zest presence. I get hay and a touch of mineral. There's a moderate floral presence with a light spiciness.

T: The flavor opens with a very light tartness accompanied by hay, earth, and a lightly spicy floral aspect, this segues into lightly sweet apple, pear, tangerine, and tangelo zest. There's a light leather note, as well as a lower earthy bitterness. The smooth finish displays pepper-like phenols with a light acidity and a nice dry highly attenuated finish.

M: Upper light body with high carbonation. The mouthfeel is crisp and dry.

Overall: This is a delicious Saison, one of the best I've had. Seek it out.
