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.

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!
