This had a cloudy yellow appearance with a thick but dissipating bright white head.

The aroma had sweet bread and grain with peppery cloves and soft banana. There was a bubblegum sweetness but it seemed more spicy.

The flavor started with a blast of clove but with every sip it started to soften to a more peppercorn tone. The was some sweetness in the array of Apple bubblegum, banana and anise.

The feel is very light and somewhat tangy with an ease that made it disappear quickly.

At first blush I was disappointed that anything with the Hill Farmstead name would be so clovey sharp but as I followed through it began to grow on me and I discovered liking it more.

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
