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

Poured into HF stemware from bottle

A-light hazy yellow, big white frothy head lacing quickly slides down side of glass (4.25)

S-yeasty, citrus, tangy, lemon, grassy notes, straw someone describes it as barnyard funk and I would agree (4.0)

T-first flavor is lemon rind, some black and white pepper (white more so) saison yeasty flavors, cloves, floral and bready notes, slight bitterness, dry (4.25)

M-fizzy from the carbonation, crisp, dry typical for the style (4.25)

O-flavors are well balanced, crisp and clean beer, good carbonation nice dry finish everything one would look for in a saison. Very enjoyable and drinkable beer (4.25)
