Huge thanks to Prost76 for sending this my way.

Beer pours a hazy light yellow with a thin white head. Aroma doesn't hit you over the head, but still is pretty impressive, though a little more subtle than I would've expected. It's a nice mix of oak, some unidentified fruit and funk. Flavor is very nice and complex, but I think I was expecting a bit more. I'm certainly getting the oak of Art and light tartness of Flora, with a hint of funkiness, but it's got a bit of an odd woody flavor in the finish. Whatever fruit (grape?) that was in the smell certainly comes through here as well in a nice way. The flavors, unfortunately, aren't as bright as I expected. Mouthfeel is a little on the thin side too and carbonation isn't huge to give it more life. tOverall, another nice saison from HF, but this one isn't as outstanding as the earlier reviews would indicate. It seems to be less than the sum of its parts.

*** 1,000 BA review! Even though there have been many more.... Been holding this for a little while.***

A: Cloudy bright golden yellow color. High carbonation. Streaming bubbles from the bottom. Sticky lacing sheeting.

S: Smells fabulous. Very vinous. White grape. Some horseblanket. Some lemon zest and slight pepper hints.

T: Again, very vinous. Really get that oak aging and wine character. It's a delicious Saison. Getting that pepper spice. That grassy grainy character. Also, white grape and slight green apple flavors. Very dry and refreshing. Enjoying on a warm summer day.

M: Medium bodied. Round mouth from aging.
