on tap at FOFA poured into a Hill Farmstead taster.

A~ glowing yellow, fluffy head and a lot of lacing.

S~ whoa! i don't even need to sip this, i want this in my nose at all times! dough, pepper, tropical fruit, all blended with lemony tartness. smells like a sour version of Bernice with guava! (SARA... thats a hint! ;-] )

T~ well the taste didn't take away from the smell at all! all is there! more tropical fruit here, a lot of guava, and a little passionfruit. followed by some hay, horse blanket brett funk and lemony tartness.

M~ great carb and extremely dry like a good champagne without all the extra carb. crisp and oh so delicate!

O~ i can't wait till this gets released in bottles. favorite of the fest for me and top 5 HF brew of all time as well! this really highlights the works of both SARA and HF perfectly! but... i thought Tired Hands had a part in this as well? i mean the keg was labeled "Tired SARA" i'm guessing HF and TH had a falling out since they weren't at FOFA too! but then again this beer wasn't cloudy at all so maybe Tired Hands didn't have anything to do with it haha!

750 ml bottle. Slightly hazy golden yellow. Small white head, no real lacing. Big white wine, oak and citrus fruits. Flavor has plenty of dry Chardonnay, oak and orange peel. Crisp, dry and refreshing. Wow did they kill it with this one.

Bottle. Big wine character from the barrel but very complimentary and adds a ton of depth to this farmhouse ale. Very juicy. Pleasantly tart. Top tier HF beer but SARA shines through. Fantastic.

Nice, deep hazy gold with orange. Decent sized white head of small bubbles that leaves good lacing.

Aroma is bright, tart, and funky. Dry red wine and oak meet citrus and grapes. Brett funk, tart lemon, aged earthy hops.

The wine barrel is at the front with lots of brett as a follow up act. Some nice grape and nectarine in the middle. It finishes with a distinct lemony tartness.

Medium mouth feel with light carbonation, very dry, and tart at the end.

Outstanding tart saison!

750 mL bottle. Hazy orange body. Medium white head. Orange citrus aroma. White wine. Taste is equally orangey. Light lemon tartness. Toasted malt cuts the sweetness of the white wine. Light body. Less heavy on the wine than Flora Cuvee, which we had just before this. A little less dynamic than Flora in that the citrus and malt flavor dominate and the wine is secondary.

Was able to enjoy this alongside some fellow beer nerds as a preamble to a whale share the following day. split 4 ways and I have to tell you I enjoyed this immensely! In my opinion, Hill Farmstead and Sante Adairius are the top 2 breweries in the world brewing Saisons right now so this collab did NOT disappoint at all!!

Looks juicy. Slightly cloudy. In the mouth, lemon gives way to grapefruit, mango, orange. Grapefruit dominates. Complex yeast character builds enjoyment. More lambic-like notes than any saison I've had previously. Mouthfeel fuller for style. Prob my favorite non-fruited saison to date!

A sour saison that's more sour than saison and I'm okay with that. Nice stuff. This one was high on my list. Always amazed at the stuff these guys come up with for our bro down's. Kevin, just killin' it once again.
