Big thanks to the best BA in all of the IC Husker Mike. Maybe we need to call him Hawkeye Mike due to his attire change last night?

This is a total taste mindfuck. Because on the front end you get funk and then on the backend you get citrus on the tip of your tongue even though the beer is halfway down to its destination. Talk about a total screw!

I Liked This Beer Berry Much!

750ml bottle #179/450 poured into a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass.

A~ glowing light orange that goes from a dark coppery orange hue at the top and slowly fads to a glowing neon orange at the bottom. nice fluffy white head and a real lot of lacing.

S~ crazy citrus, soooo much orange! along with pineapple, lemon, lime, and a little bit of grapefruit. followed by a nice hop presence which i'm surprised is still there and which also definitely adds to the citrus. everything leads into some nice peppery saison yeast.

T~ holy yessss! follows the nose with overwhelming citrus all around! some bitterness from the hops crash your pallet with amazing over tones. followed by some wheat characteristics, peppery, bready yeast that all seem to come back to the best orange juice ever! finishing up with some nice lemony oak wine barrel tartness which i'm sure has matured since the release. oh and no booze at all for 10%!

M~ soooo smooth and amazingly refreshing. has that pineapple juice feel that reminds me of Juicy. oh... i don't think i have to say it but the carbonation is outstanding!

O~ yup i had high expectations and they were still exceeded. amazing brew all around! that mouth feel of pineapple juice aka Juicy is so in your face that its literally like this beer was made with half Juicy and half of an actual mimosa haha. best saison i've ever had? yeah i'd say so lol we can prey that they release it again cause i definitely won't get another bottle but you all know it won't be the same! HA!
