look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

On tap at Schera’s in Elkader, IA. Poured into a Zwanze 2014 glass 9/20/2014.

A- Darker yellow, hazy with a 3 finger white head with way too much retention time. But plenty of lacing. It’s certainly worth waiting for. [3.75]

S- Belgian yeast, spices, cloves, pale wheat malt, tart funk. Really does smell like a tarter Saison Du Pont. [3.75]

F- Cloves, pale wheat, freshly baked bread, tart stone fruit, oak, a bit of musty hay. As in the nose, this is a tarter Saison Du Pont. Not that special, certainly not worth the asking price per bottle at Hill Farmstead but it’s certainly solid. [4]

M- Medium bodied, soft, well carbonated, mineral-dense finish with a bit of musty hay. Solid, but I don’t think I could drink more than 6oz in one sitting. [3.5]

O- Decent saison. I think the Hill Farmstead name being attached to this really makes this more desirable than it should be, especially given what it costs. [3.75]

Final score: 3.84

Smooth, easy drinking Saison. Great collaborative effort.

3.73/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Dishwater cloudy yellow. Huge white pillow of a head and excellent lacing.

Aroma: Skunked. Unfortunate as it may be. Touch of citrus fruit esters behind that though.

Flavor: Skunk is lighter on the palate thankfully. Fruit character manages to shine through.

Mouthfeel: Supper effervescent and bone dry.

Overall: Skunked, but even without that, I double this would be a world class saison I should expect from these two breweries.
