look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours a murky muddied golden orange/amber with 1 full finger+ of near white dense head, fantastic retention and lacing.

S - Light, dry, and tart. Oranges, apricot, grassy hops, and belgian funk. Relatively new aromas but thats the best I can describe, smells very appetizing.

T - Quite sour and tart, peach, pear, orange, ripened apples, slightly clovey, banana, cloves, belgian qualities. Bubblegummy.

M - Lighter bodied with solid carbonation, extremely drinkable.

O - A funky sour/tart saison. Lots of light fruity flavors (apricot and peach mostly). Really awesome, love this stuff!

Purchased a bottle of Sankt Hans at the Hill Farmstead Harvest Fest.

The beer pours a cloudy copper color with a big, frothy white head on top. The foam dissolves slowly leaving behind a coating of lace on the glass.

The aroma is fruity and spicy. Notes of apple and banana blend nicely with clove and pepper.

Each sip of this medium to full bodied beer is very smooth and soft with mild carbonation. The flavor begins sweet with caramel malt, grapes and a little apple. The middle has a touch of clove and it finishes bready with moderate fruity tartness. Once gone the spice and fruity tartness lingers on the palate.

This is a very tasty, full flavored beer with a terrific mouth feel.

750ml bottle into Hill Farmstead stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a 1.5 finger frothy white head with great retention. Beer is a clear black tea color. Lacing is thick, web-like and layered with excellent stick. A really good looking beer.

Nose is slightly tart and spritzy. Notes of Brett, sour lemon and apple. Some mild yeastiness and peppery and spicy. Very nice.

Opens yeasty, sour apple, lemon tartness. Clove, peppercorn, and floral in the middle. Ends foamy with some wood and mossy notes. Finishes tart and crisp with a lemon zest and peel aftertaste. Delicious!

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and light in the mouth and goes down dry but fluffy. Accented finish with a dry, sticky aftertaste. Super drinkable.

Hard for me to believe the low ratings on this beer. Just because it doesn't have the Hill Farmstead name doesn't mean it doesn't carry the Hill Farmstead pedigree. An excellent saison all the way around.

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this beer

Note: bottle purchased at Winooski Beverage Warehouse in 2012

Appearance: Hazy, medium amber - the bottle opens with some big carbonation, fades to a medium head, solid cap, leaves some nice streaks of lacing

Smell: Funky and interesting - some nice saison yeast, with some barnyard aromas, clove, pepper, and spice - pale and caramel malts - earth and some dirt, but also very clean - some light fruits, like apple, as well as some lemon - lightly phenolic - some nice tartness

Taste: Tart, funky, tasty - pale and caramel malts, with a touch of amber grains - lightly toasty - really nice yeast component, with a touch of barnyard, clove, lemon, and pepper - some really nice light fruitiness, with both esters (apple) and tart notes (lemon) - finishes tart and dry

Mouthfeel: Somewhere between light and medium - nicely dry, nicely tart, finishes very clean

Overall: More fortunate than Sankt Hans Moleman

This is a lovely saison. I hope it gets brewed again, and sees distribution beyond the Hill Farmstead property line. It's nicely funky and tart, yet also clean. Quite, quite nice.

Thanks for sharing, Sam.

A moderately hazy amber with a dense, off-white head with decent retention and lacing, this looks great! The nose is fantastic. More like a biere de garde than a saison, this is herbal, earthy, floral, bready and has a touch of lemon, fruit aromatics and moderate yeast. The palate opens mildly sour with a blend of lemon, lactic funk, citrus, tea leaf bitterness and the bready notes. Medium light in body, this beer finishes a little tart and yeasty. Excellent.

750ml, August 2012
Hill Farmstead wine glass

A: Pours almost clear light amber orange color. Nice carbonation. Good cap of full finger white fluffy head. Leaves some sticky lacing sheeting.

S: Nice barnyard funk on the nose. Getting some peppery spice notes as well. Grassy hops. Grainy malts.

T: Nice peppery spice on the tip of the tongue. Meshes nicely in the mid palate with the barnyard funky flavors. It's actually mildly sour, which is very nice. Finish is dry and crisp and refreshing. Not bone dry like lambic or anything.

M: It's medium bodied but drinks lighter because of the good carbonation.

Poured from bottle into a snifter glass.
Appearance is a nice amber color, good head on this beer two fingers high.
Smell is very nice yeast, some sour and tartness.
Taste is delicious and bold. Sour fruit, tanginess, some tart citrus acid.
Mouthfeel was spot on for me. Just right viscosity and just right amount of bubbles on the tongue.
This beer was a delight to enjoy. A bold and flavor forward saison.
Delicious.

Sampled from a 750ml bottle dated "07 2013" at cellar temperature. Thanks surge1311!

A - Light amber with a hazy finish and a moderate white head. A steady rise of bubbles gives it a liveliness. Nice lacing.

S - Lemon, bubble gum, wheat and grass.

T - Tart with a firm but restrained lemon flavor. Various other fruits and some nice funk too.

M - On the lighter side but it works. A nice low carbonation.

O - A very refreshing and flavorful beer. Glad I tried it.

750ml bottle purchased at Hill Farmstead and poured into HF glass. August 2012 brew date, limited to 1600 bottles.

A- Pours a translucent dark reddish brown amber with lots of fast rising carbonation bubbles and a big white foamy 4-finger head that has excellent retention and takes forever to recede coating the glass in thick foamy lacing. Towards the bottom of the bottle a build up of yeast makes it a little bit more cloudy.

S- Yeasty and lightly tart with some light grassy farmhouse-like grains and malt undertones. Fairly aromatic and very reminiscent of Arthur due to the yeasty and tart qualities.

T- Yeasty with a nice tartness and some light grassy farmhouse qualities. Finishes with a tart yet sweet lemon taste that pleasantly lingers on the palate for awhile. Nicely balanced.

M- Nice carbonation, goes down very easily, a bit too dry but a very clean finish.

O- I wasn't sure what to expect from this being a fairly experimental amber saison collaboration brew. I was pleasantly surprised and amazed at how much I actually liked this brew. It had a nicely balanced tartness to go along with a pleasant lemon sweetness. I would highly recommend this to any saison fan especially if you like Arthur.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing this bottle.

A - Poured a hazy dark honey hue with a two finger white head that fades to leave light lacing and a thin blanket.

S - Aromas of tons of funk and a light creaminess here. Very pleasant and inviting.

T - Taste really is opposite of the nose. Light chocolate and cream with strong funk and some faint citrus. Tons of funk and cream.

M - Mouthfeel has lots of carbonation but is almost still creamy on the tongue. The sharp carbonation really adds to this beers uniqueness.

O - Overall I really enjoyed this beer. Like this everything worked out

Another bottle generously shared by Chris (spycow). Served in a Hill Farmstead tulip.

A - A few fingers of white foam settles to a thin cap, leaving behind lots of lacing. Hazy dark orange-amber body.

S - Interesting and complex aroma. The farmhouse yeast is phenolic, and perhaps a touch dirty and funky, but strangely appealing. Light pepper, hand lotion, with some under-ripe apricot and vinous flavors in the periphery.

T - The taste is a touch more understated, with more toasted grains. It's again a tad vinous; sufficiently so that I was curious if this was oak-aged. Less sweet, although the stone fruits come out as it warms up a bit. Yeast is less phenolic and funky, with some mild pepper showing up in the finish.

M - Medium body, dry texture, clean finish. Pleasantly soft and creamy carbonation - feels like a Hill Farmstead offering.

D - A nice amber Saison. Nothing mind-blowing, but has sufficient depth and no flaws to it. I enjoyed that it was a sub-6% beer that had potent and complex flavors going on. Would happily drink this one again.

750ml bottle poured into a Duvel tulip.

A: Pours a red-amber color with great clarity. Four fingers worth of rocky white head makes itself a permanent fixture. A thick blanket of lacing coats the whole glass. An impressive beer to behold.

S: Yeast driven aroma, as would would expect of the style. Very peppery, hit of clove and garden herbs. Musty and rustic. Hint of tartness. Fruity scent of apricot and peach. Doughy and nutty malts with a slight toasty and bready impression.

T: Pleasing tartness greets the tongue first. Pear, peach, apricot, and green apple skin. Musty and funky, though not as much as the nose would lead you to believe. Rustic and dusty, like an old book smells. Bready and toasty malt tastes far in the background. Hit of clove. Black pepper toward the finish. Tartness fades and musty and nutty yeast rides it out into the finish.

M: Medium bodied. Light but sharp effervescence. Somewhat creamy, though it does feel overly foamy in the mouth.

O: A pleasant surprise. Sankt Hans shows a good balance of refreshing tartness and rustic barnyard character. You don't often come across a saison like this brewed on American soil. In fact, I can't say that I ever have. An easy drinking, refreshing summer quencher and a complex thinking man's beer rolled into one.

Served from a 750ml bottle into a Hill Farmstead stemmed tulip. High expectations. Slightly under cellar temps.

Appearance- Clear amber with two finger head that left nice lacing. Surprised how clear it is. Figured it would be cloudier.

Smell- A very rustic spicy, tart, funk that reminds me of Arthur mixed with a young lambic. Some mild earthy characteristics, woody notes, real funky yeast, lemons and limes, and maybe some pears.

Taste- Oaky funk up front that goes into a tart lemony/apple flavor. Earthy and floral. Similar to Arthur and Convivial but a little roast and very mild hop bitterness. Not too much going on, but what is there, is real solid.

Mouthfeel- Very, very light. This is more or less what the beer lacks. Body isn't really there. Good carbonation, but needs more viscosity to balance it out. The tartness is nice and mildly puckering.

Overall- A nice tart amber saison with nice flavors going on, but lacking in body. Tarter than expected, but that's always nice.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a wine shaped glass. There is a large foamy pearl colored head atop an amber-just darker than golden color.

The aroma has some mellow grassy hops blending with some musty, slightly peppery yeast. There is a lot of earthiness in the aroma. This is very dirty.

The taste starts out a little tart. There is a little bit of caramel sweetness. The earthiness is evident in the taste; developing into a very rubbery, band-aid like taste. About halfway through my glass, the tartness becomes subdued and this just starts to taste dirty.

This is medium bodied, with strong carbonation. I like this one. It finds its way into the farthest, dirtiest, brettiest corner of the beer flavor wheel and asserts its flavors strongly.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Hazy amber gold. Fluffy, sticky, white head. Drops to a tiny chunk of a cap with big sticky lacing.

Smell: Lightly tart. Carries some nice yeasty funk. A touch bready with some hints of acetic tartness. Some powdery yeast and some vague fruity elements. Slight caramel malt sweetness. A touch of apple. Some pearr and even a touch of mango. Nicely fruity. A bit of leather.

Taste: A bit less tart than the nose. Mild malt backbone adds some caramel malt sweetness as a compliment. Yeast is powdery and light leaving some solid earthy and grassy notes. A bit damp and musty, with a slight toasted and roasted malt element as well. A touch acetic. A vague sort of nuttiness coupled with an almost cocoa nib note. Woody. Herbal and slightly floral as well.

Mouthfeel: Medium moving toward light body. Moderate to high carbonation. Slightly dry.

Overall: Summer, not Gruber.

A nice balance of tart and funky. The darker malt profile gives it a nice touch of sweetness.

Thanks to John11486 for sharing this one at my tasting.

Bottled 8/2012. 1,600 bottles.

Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, fruits, yeast, and a mineral-like aroma. Taste is much the same with a slight tartness to it. There is a mild amount of mineral bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Picked this up at the recent Hill Farmstead Harvest Festival. Have yet to open but now seems like a good time.

Pours a light amber/brown color with a thin head into my glass. The color matches as it should.

Spicy notes from the yeast punctuate a malt bill that leans more toward sweetness than anything else. Funk-like character without the actual funk.

There's just one problem with that last line: There certainly is some funk! Apple and cherry stand out along with sweet, chewy malt.

Again, the unique texture of the malt adds character to this brew. It's all that lingers at the back of the mouth. Fairly clean finish.

Ok, I'm most certainly not a homer (someone who reviews local beers higher than usual). This is highly drinkable once you get past the first sip. It's all about character and drinkability and this beer nails both.

Pours a dark, clear golden with a low white head. The smell is peppery, with some herbal and floral notes and a little graininess. The taste is mild pepper up front, some biscuit quality in the middle, and a tang of hops in the finish. It's highly carbonated, very smooth. Easy to drink - very nice.

A: Pours a hazy golden amber in color with some orange highlights and moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a three finger tall foamy light beige head that slowly reduces to thick medium sized cap in the center with a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Overall the aroma of this beer is pretty yeasty - moderate aromas of peppery spices and some grassy barnyard funk. There is also a lighter aroma of some tart fruits including apple, apricot, and lemon/citrus.

T: Light amounts of grassy barnyard funk/hay with some light amounts of grainy malt and peppery/spicy yeast. Light to moderate flavors of tart fruits - apple, apricot, and lemon/citrus.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Slight amounts of acidic prickliness. Light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: This is a very interesting and tasty brew - one I definitely would have again. I enjoy the light funkiness and I found this one pretty easy to drink.

Grabbed a bottle at the hill farmstead harvest festival

A- a cloudy amber body with an orange glow and white foam all over the glass.

S- a dry scent with some spicy properties layering over some tart fruit tones. A little lemon scent lingers at the end of the scent

T- very dry and tart flavor mesh well with a clove and spicy note. Some sweet flavors actually balances out the flavor and allows some herbal components to shine through

M- carbonation is precise enough to leave smoothness and lingering tart flavors

O- a good amber saison that is not only tart with flavor, but smooth
with the other flavor properties. Good sweet flavor on the back end

This was brewed at, and in collaboration with, my favorite brewery, Hill Farmstead. Not sure why this isn't referenced as a collab. Also met these guys at The Festival, great guys, great beers, so this should be awesome. Shared with rudzud.

Big fluffy head hits a few fingers then fades at a med pace, nice lacing, very hazy copper mahogany orange brown color.

Nose has plenty of farmhouse and light barnyard funk, light cut grass, wet hay, light Belgian malt, saison, gritty malt and grainy, little lemony and slight yeasty, quite funky, hint orange zest and earthy.

Taste starts with earth, I don't mean earthy I mean like soil right from the farm. Lots of yeast, farmhouse funk, grainy malt, some saison malts, light saison spices, hint of lemony and orange peel citrus. Wet hay, cut grass, fermented straw, slight taste of chewing on the floor of the barn. Light sweet malt, little Berlinerweisse like lemony funk. A hint if amber toasty brown malt, and some creaminess maybe oats or lactose. Light acidity but smooth and rich. Finish is dry but light, lingering funk and grainy malts, more earth and dirt, more yeasty flavor and lemon.

Mouth is med bodied, interesting creamy feel with many little bubbles, the carbonation is interesting.

Overall really interesting, can't call it great, but it's not that bad. Weird flavors and funk, very complex, nice Berlinerweisse flavors, very earthy. Although really tasty, not sure if I could finish the entire 750ml by myself so I'm glad I got to share this with Matt.

$7.00 for 10oz, served in a tulip
Sampled 08NOV12

[A] Arrives with a puffy finger high head, snow white in color, compact/foamy in texture. Lacing in sheets. The body is medium-light brown and much darker than expected. Somewhat out of character but it is, after all, labeled as an Amber Saison.

[S] Herbs and spices hit the nose. A little mint-like with a light menthol/wintergreen thing going on. To make this experience even more unexpected, I get some candied ginger and nutmeg. Or something in the same family of spices. It's basically a hard-to-discern- combination of 2 or 3 pumpkin pie spices. Minus the cinnamon. Outlandish. But, oddly, rather enjoyable.

[T] Pure bubblegum on the flavor. Whatever the old school gum is with the yellow, blue and pink twisted wrapper (Anglo Bubbly?). Herbal mixed with earthy fall-themed spices. Either this beer was spiced, or this yeast strain had a field day during fermentation. Again, pretty enjoyable.

[M] Medium-light body, with a somewhat coarse texture and a crisp snap on the finish. Very dry.

[O] Nothing short of intriguing. I thoroughly enjoyed the glass but 10 ounces was perfect. A second glass could be a worthy challenge. [EDIT] Reading the other reviews, my experience was NOTHING like the others, which were all bottle servings, so I imagine that is the biggest contributing factor.

Hazy rusty orange with a tall white head, leaving a thin layer of carbonation after it dissipates.

The smell is funky yeast, pumpkin spice, and a slight metallic smell.

The taste is tart, pumpkin spice (I keep picking this up and was not expecting it,) lemon, and yeasty.

Mouthfeel is heavily carbonated, dry, and tart.

I've only had a couple but really dig the saisons that come out of HF.
