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

Light, bright pastel yellow in color. Forms a large stable fluffy white head that gives the beer the appearance of lemon meringue pie. Aroma is bright and crisp predominantly with notes of lemon and coriander. Taste is much like the aroma - There is a lot of coriander in this one. Lemon, lemon peel, spice, and a touch of wheat. Dry. Heavy carbonation. Slight tartness. Low bitterness.
Not a bad Saison, but nothing earth shattering either.

Small tartness. Belgian yeasts taste a lot and there's a hint of hops. Very dry bitterness.
Typical Belgian farmhouse. Not my kind of beer but drinkable

Thanks Craft Shack!

Pours a straw yellow with a ton of foam on top of the brew...and it likes to grow.

It certainly has the usual Saison aromas going on, horse blanket, pepper, yeast, faint clove, and then the Amarillo hops kick in.

The taste pretty much reflects the nose...it's a battle between the Amarillo and that horse blanket goodness. One of the 2 wins by a nose. ;^)

Light side of medium bodied with a nice level of carbonation.

The deeper I got into the bottle, the more I liked it. I should say get and like as I haven't finished it just yet.
