From the 750 ml. bottle dated 03-22-2017. Sampled on June 29, 2017.

The pour is an attractive looking foggy pale yellow with a tremendous and lasting white foamy head.

The aroma starts out with the wild yeast strain that HF uses for its Saisons, a little lemon zest, a drop of honey, and some barnyard. So sweet and sour.

Light to medium body that also feels creamy on my tongue.

The taste becomes far more sour and tart than the aroma suggests although a distant sweet toastiness plays up too. The finish is zingy and juicy which tends to keep the sour/tart character in moderation.

This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy burnt golden yellow to orange color with slim finger’s worth of foamy white head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds leaving some light rings of lacing. The smell starts off with an eloquent sweet floral setting leading into a smooth sweet honey and a light underscore of spice to balance. Light citrus also makes a light presence. The taste was mainly sweet through the floral and the honey adding a bit of grassiness underneath. There’s no aftertaste but a light sweet floral finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly smooth. Light sweet floral tones hit my tongue in a refreshing manner. Overall, what a wonderful saison that I would love to have again.
