4.41/5  rDev +13.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

750mL corked and caged bottle poured into a snifter.

(A)- Gusher! Pours a bright yellow color. Produced a giant head of white froth. Solid retention and lacing.

(S)- Absolutely and completely bone dry with an assertive dry, almost grainy earthy yeast character. Just a hint of lemongrass at the end.

(T)- This may be the driest Saison in memory. Lemongrass funk meets an assertive bitterness. I like the light graininess to the yeast.

(M)- This is so dry with a lively crisp carbonation level. A great balance with subtle funk and solid bitterness.

(O)- I love how dry this is. The bitterness hop note keeps it interesting all the while the soft yet grainy yeast really fits this well. I can see why many may not like this, but it is right in my wheelhouse for the style.

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
