2015 bottle. Poured still. Amber color is right on point. Fairly lemony tart. It's an interesting contrast with the malty body. It does drink a little heartier than the others but it is difficult to get all the flavors with no carbonation. It's an annual release and the brewery let this beer out, so I'll rate the experience that I had.

Bottle onsite at Hill Farmstead Brewery in Greensboro Bend, VT.

This one pours a nice golden amber color, with a big fluffy head and lots of lacing.

This smells like honey, grassy funk, herbal tea, bready malt, lemon, and toast.

This is really well done. It’s got a nice malt character for the style, with a nice warm toastiness and some definite breadiness. There’s a soft lemony acidity, and lots of hay type funk, and just a hint of honey sweetness.

This is light bodied and surprisingly creamy, with a great level of drinkability.

I had been looking forward to trying this for a while now. It did not disappoint.

Pours a reddish amber. Not much in the form of head. The cap came off easily, so I wonder if there were some packaging issues. By that, I mean that it didn't seem as tightly on the bottle as other Hill farmstead ales. Smells like many of Hill's saisons. There's that yeasty lemony house character. This carries though as far as taste, but there isn't much else. It's dry. I don't know if greater carb would have led to a more pronounced body, but it felt very thin. I wouldn't call this a disappointment, but it was pretty ordinary by Hill's standards.

Just came in flat, not even a half finger head. Flavor profile was good, right amounts of spice and acidity but really needs some carbonation where this had none.
