4.65/5  rDev +6.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottle poured into a Hill Farmstead stem.

Pour: Pours a lightly hazy, amber orange with a finger of bubbly white head. Light lacing, and the head quickly recedes to a rim.

Smell: Lots of tropical mango, passion fruit, and pineapple up front, with a nice musty and earthy funk. Some lemon and bit of lactic tartness. Funk is typical for a Hill Farmstead wine barrel saison. Smells great!

Taste: Lots of the same pineapple, mango, and tropical fruits from the nose, a nice tartness, but with a more substantial doughyness and a light touch of caramel. A hefty earthen funk throughout. Finish is more citric with lemons, funk, and light vinous oak. As it warms, more musty funk and oak develop.

Mouthfeel: Lightly tart and very drying, especially as it warms. Lower carbonation.

Overall: Delicious. A lot of Juicy characteristics. I personally prefer #5.

4.55/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

375ml bottle split two ways with Dustin. Thanks a lot man! Bottled 5/2013, poured into a Hill Farmstead stemmed glass today, 3/3/2014.

App- hazy amber copper body. One finger white head, good retention, drops into a nice medium sized collar. Nice lacing.

Smell- Quite tart, with a vinegary acidity that isn't overwhelming with a nice citrus, orange peel nose that comes out much more as it warms. Background notes of grapes and oak. I can't understate how much the citrus comes out in this beer. Damn. What a great smelling saison.

Flavour- Quite tart with that Northeast Kingdom funk that is so pleasant when combined with a 6/10 acidity that makes me think American wild ale. Warming up, I get more citrus- orange juice, orange peel, lemon zest. White wine grapes and oak. If this is Juicy, sign me up! Very tasty, complex and interesting.

Mouthfeel- medium bodied, perfect carbonation, mellow and not intense on the backend aside from citrus peel.

Overall- This blended saison exceeded my expectations. Enjoyed this one a lot!
