Honey on the nose and in the finish. Really boosts the body. Carb on point. Floral, lightly sweet, dry, and lightly tart. Well balanced and superb.

Chilled bottle into a glass. Batch 2. Thanks!

A: Pours a cloudy, lemon-colored body capped with two fingers of fluffy, off-white head. Good retention that leaves a little streaking down the glass.

S: Extremely floral; Vera Mae has a field blossom aroma that accentuates notes of lemons, white pepper, and grass.

T: The taste is more evolved than the nose; in addition to its dominant floral and lemon flavors, Vera Mae has a grainy sweetness in the mid-taste. As it draws to a close, grass and an herbal character emerge, uniting at the finish with a peppery bite. The aftertaste has a noticeable herbal kick.

M: Light-medium bodied; however, it finishes with a drying close, in part due to the pepper and herbal aftertaste.

O: Very good, though I like some of HF's other saisons more.
