Poured from a bomber into a tulip- pours a hazy golden yellow color with two fingers of head, great retention, nice swathes of lacing.

Smells great- some Amarillo hops, nice and piney and floral and a good dose of funk. A little grain.

Tastes lovely just as a saison should. Good dose of Belgian funk along with a nice hop flavor and bitterness. A nice light grain profile and the spelt makes itself known towards the end.

Mouthfeel is very nice- well carbonated, light bodied. This is an awesome collaboration. You should get it if you can find it,

Found 2 of these bottles on the shelf in DeCiccos! Would have bought more but they only had 2 left :) one in the cellar - one in the belly.
Corked bottle - huge pop! Poured into HF Tulip - proper glassware.
Golden clear - almost hay color with 3 fingers of fluffy bubbly head. Huge aromas as the cork flies; grassy hay and a delicate saison aroma with a slight hop note. Taste is very classic "saison"...grainy hay, a nice slight balanced hop presence, and what I imagine is the spelt (I think im starting to tell what spelt tastes like - hint tired hands). So, deff a spelt flavor, its fluffy, rustic, classic, just so good...
its super dry and as perfect as can be for a saison.
Overall, this is simply amazing. A near perfect saison with a slight new age twist. Love it!

La Vermontoise
A-golden, opaque saison that pours a massive head that looks like the thunderstorm clouds out my window on this ungodly hot june afternoon.
S-yeasty, general saison aromas, not distinctly noticeable hops
T-Almost orange-y sweetness, maybe some coriander, very refreshing. Kind of a better than average saison, comparable to Dupont I would say.
M-malty sweetness, lingering fruity aftertaste.
O-Makes a phenomenal summer beer. Love the label and name as well. Very true to perfecting the saison style rather than experimenting with other flavors.
