A huge thank you to Paul for grabbing this for me whilst at Hill Farmstead.

Served in a Hill Farmstead wine glass.

The beer is clear and golden yellow with over an inch of fluffy white head. The aroma brings funk, lemons, floral notes, mineral water, earthy tones. Similar flavor, finishing dry. A tasty beer. Mild brett and oak throughout. Not the most exciting saison, but certainly a pleasure to drink.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Huge white head atop a hazy pale orange body. Beautiful lacing and great lacing.

Smell - Bretty and acidic. Pale malt. Lemony citric acids. Slight funk.

Taste - Bright lemony tang. Earthy bretty flavors. Slightly sweet pale malts. Bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium light body. Well carbonated.

Overall - I was tempted to say that this a fairly straightforward oak brett saison, but that sounds foolish.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance. Pours a hazy honey-gold with three fingers of frothy white head.

Smell. Spicy yeast and funky dry brett with grassy hops and a little bit of old barrel wood.

Taste. Lemony sourness, spicy saison yead and dry woody brett, and tart light orchard fruits. Nice.

Mouthfeel. Medium body, maybe on the light side. Medium-full carbonation.

Overall. Great stuff. Wish I picked up a few more but happy to have tried it.
