4.5/5 rDev +1.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
2014 bottle into Hill Farmstead stem.
Pours a bright, hazy yellow with soapy two finger head that leaves nice whispy lacing on the sides of the glass.
Aroma is of bright citrus fruits, mainly lemons, limes, and oranges. Juicy, earthy pulp, faint yeast musk, touch of breadiness, tropical fruits floating lightly. Little to no typical saison spices as the fruit is dominant.
The taste follows through with more rich breadiness, tangy lime, deep orange pith/pulp, nectarine skin, calcium forward minerality. Easy drinking, refreshing, excellent exposure of the fruit additions. Crushable.
Mouthfeel is light bodied, carbonation spot on. Tart throughout with a dry finish. Hint of citrus sweetness rounds this out magnificently.
Overall a juicy, highly drinkable, citrus forward saison. The lime and blood orange come out about as good as possible. If anything, maybe the addition of the citrus has thinned down the body a bit. Complexity is not great, but the flavors are so rounded and delicious the former is overlooked. About as good as Convivial Suarez and similar in characteristics.

4.46/5 rDev +0.9%

Poured from the most recent release 05/2014 into a modified tulip.
A - Beautiful color, deep straw, carbonation dances into a wonderful rich froth.
Lacing completes the picture, fine and thorough.
S - Fresh citrus, lime, and blood orange as advertised, a touch of funky barn, ever so slight. The nose continues as the beer warms into sweet and sour lime. Ever so enticing.
T - Wonderful tart snap to begin, then fine malt with a tease of refined hops. This is incredibly refreshing. Finishes with a wonderfully tropical, feel.
M - The mouth is coated but lightly as the carbonation with the lime and blood orange to balance the experience. Medium bodied but delicate to say the least.
O - The finest of the saison's I have had this year. The citrus, house yeast, perfect carbonation blend into a fantastic creation.
I hope this becomes one of their permanent portfolio.
