Review from notes.

A: Pours a bright orange/peach color with a foamy white head on top about two fingers in height. Great head retention and lacing.

S: Fantastic citrus aroma, lots of lime upfront with lemon as well. Very bright, really inviting. A bit of light funk on the back end.

T: Very juicy and refreshing. More citrus, mainly as lime with a bit of lemon peel mixed in. A little bit of stone fruit as well, some apricot/peach.

M: Light to medium bodied, very easy drinking with a great level of carbonation.

O: A fantastic beer, I was a big fan of the citrus in this beer, would love for HF to make this frequently..or at least again.

Thanks to Kyle for picking this one up for me. 750ml capped bottle into a Drie Fonteinen wine glass. Shared with schen9303.

This one's a slow gusher. Pours a 3 finger course, frothy white head with good retention. Lacing is stringy, patchy and thick with good stick. Beer is a clear gold color that reveals ample retention. Beautiful!

Nose is lime, coriander, clove, flowers, sweet, spritzy with a fresh citrus tartness. Real aromatic. Very nice.

Opens tart lime and citrus. Coriander and other spices come in towards the middle. There's a touch of floral and spice bitterness. Bready and yeasty at times. Citrus tartness throughout. End is yeasty with a slightly spicy finish and a clove, peppery finish. Crisp, clean, tart aftertaste. Phenomenal!

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly, bubbly and refreshing in the mouth and goes down crisp and clean. Subtle, clean finish with a short aftertaste. Super drinkable.

This beer is just a step below perfect. Unmistakably a Shaun Hill beer, this is the essence of Saison, bottled. The nose is lively and appetizing, the flavor is crisp and refreshing, and the feel is just spot on in every way. Really an awesome beer all the way around.
