Notes: Brother Soigné, our Farmstead® ale brewed with blood orange, lime, and hibiscus. We take a small amount of this base beer and age it atop pomace—in this instance, cherry and raspberry. The result becomes Soignée.

This one pours a very lightly pinkish but mostly orange color, with a slight haze, fluffy head, and lots of lacing.

The aroma is vaguely citrusy, with the original Soigne's blood orange being the star here, with very little overt raspberry character. I do get cherry and lime, but it overall kind of just smells a bit muddled and unfocused?

The taste follows suit there. There's a lot of different fruit additions to this one, but the least interesting one - for me, the blood orange - is the one that comes out most strongly. There's very little raspberry, with a nice dry cherry character, and lots of funky citrus notes. Regular Brother Soigne is much, much better than this.

This is light bodied, crisp, clean, and very drinkable, with a pleasantly citrusy finish.

This wasn't bad by any means, but not really up to the usual standard of this brewery.

Very surprising this sat for so long

Gorgeous red/orange saison with decent head. Nose is all delicate fruit blended with HF barrel aged saison. Taste is delicious fruit without being overwhelming, faint touch of bitterness on the end is delicious

750 mL bottle. Cloudy orange. Smells of orange and lime. Light basement yeast and acidity. Tastes of raspberry, lime, a little sweetness, lightly tart. A bit of earthy yeast. Limey finish. Medium light. Subtle fruit. It's good.

750 ml bottle.

Pours a hazy amber orange color. Small white head with minimal retention. Leaves a fair bit of sticky cobweb lacing.

Aromas of tart cherries, lime, raspberries, hay, and light funk.

Flavor follows the nose. Very citrusy.

Clean, crisp body. Effervescent, lively carbonation.

Overall, about on par with the base beer. Slightly more tart due to the cherry and raspberry.

L: tan to golden + white head
S; typical hF funk with lemon notes leading the way
T: I was looking for the fruit to come through but it did not or was faint
If I was blinded no way I would have know it was fruited beer

M crisp high carb

O drinking side by side with Merkel Morello it was night day 1st HF I felt good but missed the mark

Several weeks after the fire, neighbors and I finally found time for a backyard beer tasting - leading off with this difficult to procure ale. When I think farmhouse ale, these folks have refined it to a level that melds the tartness with a clean, crisp ale. Dare I even say champagne like? Just wow, thank you!
