Pours a slightly hazed amber with 2 fingers of pearl white head. Pretty good lacing 7 head retention, stays semi-cloudy

S: Pears, appleskins & sourness

T: Follows the nose, a little blueberry as well & tartness as well up front. Faint pineapple notes break through as this warms, along with orange peel & grapefruit pith & blueberry tartness. Finishes with citrus, pine needles, & some pear & dried, blueberry & even a little Bing cherry fruity sweetness

MF: Medium bodied, lively carbonation, nicely balanced

Super drinkability, nice refreshing take on the style, while still packing a punch

Served from bottle in to a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass. Pourer a deep red-orange with a one finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, earth, berries, funk, wheat, and raspberry. The flavor was of sweet malt, wheat, funk, earth, blueberry, and subtle raspberry. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. I can tell what they were going for in this one. They basically brewed a fairly generic saison and gave it a subtle berry touch. All in all, it actually worked out pretty decent. I didn't find it too sweet nor too earthy which is always good with a saison. If you are a fan of fruited saisons you owe it to yourself to try this one to judge for yourself.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a medium orange amber with a half finger white head that dissipates to a thin film with a ring around the glass. Aroma of berries (more raspberry than blueberry), bready and saison yeast, apple juice. Flavor is pomegranite juice, raspberry, saison yeast, caramel; lots of fruit juice and a little earthy. Finishes with an interesting generic fruit flavor that has a bit of cranberry like astringency that plays well against the main sweet fruit flavors. Medium bodied with good carbonation. A very flavorful berry fruit saison. I don't get the blueberry taste that they were aiming for, but it doesn't matter, because the berry mixture that is present is tasty. Light saison yeast and very light hints of brett to add some character. I wasn't sure about this one, but enjoyed it quite a bit. Interesting idea and production.
