4.05/5  rDev +6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

On tap at three penny taproom

A: golden honey color but not translucent looks more like an ipa then a saison but without the head

S: lots of aged hops I can't describe the smell but it smells like a saison for sure

T: malty with a hint of hops tastes Like what I would think a saison would taste like but nothing super special

M: drinkable very oily and thin with a light carbonation that valves the feel nicely again like a saison should be

O: really solid saison definitely not the best one ice had from hfs but will stand up to pretty much any standard saison I thoroughly enjoyed it

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

First had: on tap at Capone's, Norristown, PA

Served in a Long Trail tulip, a clearish light amber color with a fizzy white head and active carbonation. Aroma was woody, light with spice, apple skins, herbal. Truly autumnal on the palate, but as opposed to a full-blown pumpkin/spice beer, it was much lighter and subtle in body and taste. Essence of pumpkin and apple cider, peppery spice, grass, toasted wheat, herbal and earthy hop notes. Body was on the lighter side of medium. Overall quite good.
