Poured into HF stemware from bottle

A-light hazy yellow, big white frothy head lacing quickly slides down side of glass (4.25)

S-yeasty, citrus, tangy, lemon, grassy notes, straw someone describes it as barnyard funk and I would agree (4.0)

T-first flavor is lemon rind, some black and white pepper (white more so) saison yeasty flavors, cloves, floral and bready notes, slight bitterness, dry (4.25)

M-fizzy from the carbonation, crisp, dry typical for the style (4.25)

O-flavors are well balanced, crisp and clean beer, good carbonation nice dry finish everything one would look for in a saison. Very enjoyable and drinkable beer (4.25)

Very tasty, easy to appreciate saison. It's a bit hoppier than normal, and leans to the dry side, but I like that just fine in a saison. A bit more flavor would be nice, but what there is nice enought.. It's a bit on the spendy side at my local, which is really the only complaint I have about this beer.

From the corked, caged 750 ml green bottle. Sampled on August 22, 2014.

Straw yellow, highly carbonated pour under a white fizzy head that builds up and fades back.

Green bottle skunkiness kicks in but not as bad as it might have been. Although it does distract from the other aromas of toast, yeast, spice, and citrus.

Light to medium body.

A nice bready, lemongrass, and citrus flavor that finishes slightly dry.

Served on-tap in a 16 oz HF-branded willi at The Reservoir (Waterbury, VT).

A: Slightly hazy lemonade yellow with 1-finger of foamy, almost white head with good retention and a collar of lace at the top of the glass. (4.0)

S: Delicious aromas of lemon citrus, grassiness, earthy yeast esters, tangy wheat, and crisp pale pilsner malt with just the right grainy edge (4.25)

T: A nice light taste, a wonderful aperitif with tangy lemon-lime and grapefruit citrus, grassy-herbal honeysuckle, and earthy, slightly funky yeast ester component accentuating the tang and light-medium bitterness. This is not a very tart beer, but the lightness and dryness of the feel seems to enhance the tangy, quenching character of this beer. Pilsner malt sweetness is a light touch along with a little bit of grain character to lend some needed grit to this complex, otherwise elegant beer. (4.25)

M: The feel is on-target with light body, high carbonation, and medium-dry finish. THe body is substantial enough, however, to maintain the feel and prevent astringency. (4.5)

O: This is a superb saison and my first HF beer. Delicious prior to an excellent dinner with a great blend of tart, tang, citrus and herbal hopping with a light amount of earthy yeast character to keep the complexity high but not overwhelming. Stellar beer.
