I never mention bitterness in my reviews, my bitterness taste buds are ridiculously under-
APPEARANCE : Bright hay/yellow colour, smooth white head, about 2cm thick, that drops slowly, leaving some lacing. The body is not quite completely clear, there's a slight haze and some particles are present.
SMELL : First nose is malt and hay, yeast, with a definitely sharp hoppy side, which I think should express itself more clearly in the second and third noses. Some grass and faint flowers. Second nose brings out the yeast profile some more and also the hops. I can see where this is going. Third nose says it all. This collaboration has the yeast profile of Blaugies products blended in with the Hill Farmstead's mastery of bright hops. Very interesting.
TASTE : The yeasty hay is a dominant on the taste, the hops are there but blended in with the hay side. This hay seems to be what links the Blaugies yeast side and the Hill Farmstead hop side. Definite barnyard side, with some dry hay and earthy, dusty notes.
MOUTHFEEL : Good carbonation. The texture has some earthiness. Good length, the final aromas stay with you for a little while, quite bright.
OVERALL : An interesting brew, especially for those who know both Blaugies' and Hill Farmstead's products. They managed to make a very interesting collaboration, blending both brewing styles into something that has both personalities but still knows where it's going.

A: Pours a hazed golden color with a huge fluffy white head. Pretty great retention and a ton of sticky lace left behind with each sip. Tons of visible carbonation in the glass.
S: Dusty and grassy with an underlying grainy sweetness and a touch of clove. Maybe a hint of ginger, lemon meringue and green apple.
T: Cracked black pepper and earthy malt throughout with just a hint of clove and baked apple poking through. Grassy hops, dusty earth, a touch of funk and some white pepper on the finish. Pretty clean and finishes up very dry. Not the best out there, but a pretty tasty saison.
