Bottled one time.

Not a very inviting beer. Ruddy, gnarly dirty clay look with a thick quilt of loose light tan foam. Smells like co2, soil, grass and a hint of metal. Maybe some manure. Flavor is light a really tasty lacto innoculated saison with some hints of grain and apple. The beer is crispy and light with an enigmatic staying power to the finish. I'm surprised and delighted by this one.

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

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.

Rare tick, thanks Mac!

Tons of head up top. Super malty/bready aroma, banana esters initially too. Fades to a more spicy, yeasty, traditional aroma. Strange.

Not much in the taste to separate it from other saisons. Intensely bitter yeast in the finish. A decent saison, I suppose, but nothing special.
