Poured from a pint bottle into a pint glass
A: Wheat-yellow color (if that makes sense) with a one-finger head
S: Lemongrass, wheat and spice, though there's also a distinct note of something that reminds me of laundry detergent- not necessarily bad just out of place
T: Coriander, basil, lemongrass, white pepper. Tastes okay but could use some wheat/hops on top of the herbs/spice
M: Medium-bodied, fairly smooth, good carbonation
O: Interesting to try, fits the style well but probably not a repeat purchase

16 oz bottle poured into a Hinterland tulip
6.3% ABV

A - Lazy carbonation travels through the pretty clear golden-hued brew to it's frothy and lingering eggshell head. Heavy lace clings to the glass for a beautiful and style-perfect appearance.

S - Spicy overtones from Hinterland's Saison bring white pepper and lemongrass to the forefront, focusing in on the yeast esters very nicely. Complimentary floral hop notes continue the rustic aroma through to it's pale malt backbone for an exemplary nose.

T - The bouquet of yeast esters develops further in flavor, incorporating chalky clay and subtle apricot fruit into the white pepper and lemongrass taste but floral, citrusy hops become the focus (though not by much) tasting like a full-on Lemonhead. Malt support is spot-on as it's sweetness gently cuts through spice and bitterness for a balanced finish.

M - This medium-bodied saison has a perfect carbonation level; prickly but not sharp, which helps the malt in cutting through some of the spiciness and hop bitterness for a well-balanced but lingering finish.

O - Hinterland's Saison might be all over the map with complex fragrant yeast esters and distinctive hop flavor (and higher than usual bitterness) but the end result is a harmonious brew; one of the better American-brewed Saison-style beers out there, especially if you like Lemonheads, which is certainly what it tends to remind me of.

(Served in a Nonic)
A- There is just a touch of hazy to the golden orange body with a strong carbonation supporting a wispy snow white sticky head.

S- A mineral water aroma with some malt note and a soft saison yeast ester finish.

T- There is a nice fresh lightly toasted malt flavor leads to a mellow saison ester flavor then some green pineapple weed hops in the finish. A gentle bitter note lingers. There is also a mineral note to the Saaz hops that come through.

M- The medium mouthfeel as a gentle fizz in the finish.

O- This beer has a mellow ester profile with a nice balance to the malt flavor and hops are also in balance. Nice session beer and a unique take on the saison style.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: a medium golden beer with great clarity and a rocky, white head with good retention.

S: There are medium black pepper and spicy hops aromas dominating the nose with a slight clove spice. Some fruity esters. The hops smell so fresh that they have that brightness like having just been dumped into the boil kettle while brewing; they bring a moderate amount of grassiness and some lemon citrus notes.

T: Medium-strong citrus and spice flavors with a medium hops bitterness. The spice is a blend of slightly more pepper than clove. The hops are mostly a spice Saaz-like with some lemon character. There is a good amount of Pils malt with a light sweetness but balance is fairly bitter and the finish is dry. An orange fermentation character comes through the more it warms.

M: A moderately light bodied beer with a strong level of carbonation.

O: A dry, spicy somewhat fruity beer with a good amount of hops character; everything that I enjoy about the Saison style. Worth looking for when your in WI. and would be nice great to find locally.
