I had this on tap at Parker Pie in VT, served chilled in a pint at the 4th anniversary party for Hill Farmstead.
The color is sunny amber with hazed clarity and thick white head that settles with a fine bead-no lace. The aroma is very good with juicy scent of strong citrus with lemonade and berry aroma with lactic tang in the nose and mineral note with orange rind spiciness. The feel is tangy, tart and has high carbonation with mild body and prickly carb w/ jazzy acidic feel lighter body and semi dry finish.
The flavor is strong citrus with lemony and floral flavor of hibiscus with its light sour tropical fruitiness and lemony tart acidity hits the palate with herbal and spice complimentary flavor of orange the hibiscus blends well with malt in the finish. Overall a very sour, refreshing beer with tasty citrus and excellent drinkability -very nice quaffable sour ale with moderately low abv.

*Best saison that I have ever had. I have not had many though. I tend to grade saisons low, even if they are pretty good just because there always seems to be a watery void in the middle; and they just seem simple. This one does not fit
A- Pours one-finger white cloud head with medium retention down to a large lacing ring with slow legs.
S- Lime zest for the most part, some orange peel. There is some honey that I am getting as well in the nose. Musty, earthy funk background.
T- Nice tart citrus follows a perfectly balanced earthy hay backbone. The citrus sticks around for a long time, and that is what makes this saison stand out from the rest. The very refreshing summertime citrus lingers for minutes. Very impressed with how this beer was crafted!
M- Very smooth, pretty creamy. The carb is in great proportions to let the citrus pop along with the carb.
O- This is an extremely well done saison! Thanks so much Stevedore for this one! You are an amazing BA!!

Served from a 750ml bottle into a HF Stemmed tulip glass. Dated 10-2013.
Appearance- Pretty orange/pink color with some light haze and half finger bubbly white head that disappeared quickly.
Smell- Grapefrit, blood orange, lemon, lime, HF funk, light cherry-like presence, mild vinegar qualities. Very nice.
Taste- Same fruits as mentioned above, mild wheaty quality, light lemon/lime tartness, green apple, light berry presence, and rustic HF funk.
Mouthfeel- Well carbonated, very light body, light tartness, superbly drinkable.
Overall- Another obviously good HF beer. Reminds me of Anna with the addition of fruit. Great summer thirst quencher.
