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.
