A - poured a deep straw under a thin little white head. Slight haze on this batch.

S - heavy malt base of grains and straws poking through in a teasing manner. Light floral hops punched through the hops and yeast.

T - the initial hint of sweetness is overcome by the complexity of all the aforementioned aromas. Quite nice.

M - nice little alcohol bite with a slower finish to it.

D - surely, I could session this one, it's just the slight dryness without the depth of the complexity is what has it pull a bit short. Still, solid offereing from IH.

3.55/5  rDev -4.8%

A: A brassy-orange pour is capped off by a thin, frothy, off-white head that soon disperses without much fanfare or lacing. A near silent visible effervesce is observed.

S: The nose was orangey, with a light supporting cast of apricots. Light to medium in strength with some grainy sweetness backing it up.

T: The flavor was even-toned, a bit of sweet fruitiness up front of wet apricots, oranges, and light sweet mentions from the grain. Some light citra hops come through, which finishes off dry along with some alcohol warming, perhaps a bit more then usual per style. Some wet citrusy nature is vaguely hinted upon mixed in with some dry fruitiness, but was not so much tart as expected.

M: The mouthful produced a nice crispness despite the deceiving low visible effervesce. Definite mentions of some bubbly activity appears on the tongue turning frothy on longer holds.

D: Only the slight alcohol indication hinders thins from better drinkability. Not so much a summer time repeat quencher of multiples as it is in limited quantities. Worthy of a pint or two.

This saison appeared very cloudy and unfiltered. Small amount of white bubbly foam dissipates within a moment. Medium carbonation coming through this viscous brew. Very little lacing is left.
Smells of tart apple, orange peel, citrus, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg. Very interesting for sure.
Taste all of the above listing with a semi dry finish and a slightly oily and yeasty feel on the middle of the tongue. Mildy sweet and tart at the same time. Overall, this is maybe a few drinks and done. It's interesting but I wouldn't want to drink this one all night long. I know it is supposed to be of the traditional saison style but compared to many others of the same style, it's missing a little something.

It's ok, dog.

This beer came a murky straw and lemon with some delicate orange highlights. The creamy egg shell head left some thin strips of lace behind.

Smells of oranges and bananas with an assertive, organic dryness and bit of French bread.

Tastes of sour dough and popcorn with a big sour lime and green apple that falls into a doughy yeast and grapefruit ring hop that tingle the edges of my tongue.

The mouth feel is medium bodied with a light tingly carbonation.

This one’s just all right for the style. It tasted so much like IH’s hefe, I had to get a sample of the hefe just to make sure. Although mildly ambiguous between these two styles, it’s still pretty good.
