look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from 750 mL bottle into tulip.
A: Pours a slightly hazed yellow (hint of green about the edges) with extremely active carbonation jets producing a 3-4 inch billowy white head. Excellent retention.
S: Soft lemon and orange citrus, earthy mineral funk, toasted cereal grains, and a hint of honey.
T: Soft orange citrus, black and white pepper, toasted grains, honey, and earthy mineral funk.
M: Prickly carbonation hits the tongue first. Light body. Slightly sweet at first, then turns more bitter and astringent in the mid-palate through the finish.
D: An interesting take on the style. Can definitely tell the influences of both Hill and Blaugies. An excellent result of a collaboration brew. Very drinkable and refreshing with a decent amount of complexity.

5 oz taster served at Max's Taphouse in Baltimore. From notes.

A: Pours a hazy gold color. There's a one finger white-colored head, and - despite being in a dinky little sample - showed both good retention and some lacing.

S: This smells like a garden. I'm getting huge amounts of floral qualities (I'm thinking lavender), along with some nice fresh-cut grass. Funky notes are subtle. It really smells like spring; if I had to nitpick (I always do), I'd almost suggest it's TOO floral, grassy, and herbaceous.

T: There's a nice, grassy hop bite at first. It quickly transitions into a floral finish. Everything balances out well, but much like the nose indicated, a bit more funk wouldn't hurt.

M: Bone freakin' dry. Plain and simple. Powerful carbonation plays a role into its dry lightness, but the latter isn't exclusively reliant on the fizz to cleanse the back end.

O: Pretty much spring in a dinky little sample. If it was more funky, it would be off the charts, but it's still really damn good as is.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a tulip glass from a 750ml bottle.

Bottle opens with a nice pop. Pours a nice pale straw golden color with some slight haze. A large 3 inch tall head appears after a gentle pour with active carbonation rising rapidly from the bottom of the glass.

Aroma is of fresh cut grass. Notes of grain and bready malt. Some slight cornhusk notes as well as some nice notes of mild lemon can be perceived in the nose. Very fresh nose with some good funk on the back end. Nice hop nose is present with some mild American-style bite and citrus-ness to it.

Flavor starts off with quite traditional saison notes. Typical bready and earthy grain notes. There is some nice funk mixed in with the malt undertones. Slight fruit sweetness is present along with some nice citrus notes. The hops play into the flavor a bit more as the beer warms with a nice grassy and citrus character. The slight fruit notes liven up a bit more as it warms and compliment the dry funkiness very well. Solid. Mouthfeel is crisp, carbonated and dry.

Solid brew overall. Great funky notes and nice grainy saison notes with a good dose of hop character.
