4.28/5  rDev +10.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A- Poured into two HF tulips glasses with a yeast-hazed golden yellow body. Pouring in the center immediately reveals an insane amount of foam, almost leaving the glass. Great head retention as the cap never seems to fully leave, falling to a thick pillow after about ten minutes. The amount of lacing is extraordinary, thick blankets coat the glass all around the entire bowl of the tulip.

S- Classic Belgian farmhouse yeast off the top without much funk or added specialty items. Reminds me of the DuPont strain quite a bit and not as much of a French strain. Inviting notes of lemon citrus, Belgian peppery and herbal yeast spice, light grains and some bread hints. Becomes quite flowery with warming.

T- A prominent, yet soothing spicy Belgian yeast with a slight hop balance on the back end. Appropriate amount of yeast character bringing notes of peppery spice, cooking herbs, lemon zest oil and grainy bread. Hops are herbal, floral and a tiny bit fruity. Light malts provide a platform for the yeast to shine.

MF- Light, super dried out body with a high end carbonation. Foams up nicely as you sip on it and really exhibits a good feel for the style. Light spicy bitterness lingers on the palate after sipping.

For a no-frills kind of Saison this is something I would enjoy time and time again. I love DuPont and this reminds me a bit of it, perhaps with a bit more hop character and a slightly different yeast feel. Definitely recommended for fans of Saisons.

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
