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

I enjoyed this on tap at Parker Pie for the 4th Anniversary party for Hill Farmstead -served chilled in a pint.

The color is golden with thick hazed look with white cap and fine bead. The smell is lghtly sulfuric with mineral aspect and phenolic yeast accent with gentle spice and some herbal hop aromas. The feel is medium bodied with gentle note of grain with very yeast oriented texture which is on the dry side with spiced element and medicinal edge with light tangy vinous quality.

The flavor is decent with some mild malt with a good amount of yeastiness in the flavor which is both creamy and has a slight pepper and phenolic quality combined with herbal and grass tinged hop flavor with a mild alcohol and light bitterness that carries through. Overall a more traditional take on the style with high hoppiness combined with lots of yeast aroma and flavor.

Serving type: on-tap

4.43/5  rDev +14.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured into 12 oz tulip. Bottle aged 1+ year.

Pours with a huge bright white head. Bright golden, crystal clear in color. Lots of carbonation. You can see the bottle conditioning is still working away in this beer. Tight, sporadic lacing.

Aroma is prominent barnyard funk with grass, grain, straw and slight lemon characteristic.

Taste is not quite as funky as smell. Slightly sweet with mild hop presence, lemon, grassy and underlying citrus. Funk fades slightly with more lemon and fruit flavors as it warms.

Mouthfeel is light and spritzy. Extremely drinkable.

This beer has developed beautifully over the past year. Easily one of the best saisons I've had this year. Rivals some of my all time favorites from Fantome. I want more.

3.9/5  rDev +1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
