The beer pours a Straw Yellow with a big white fluffy head. It has high carbonation. The beer smells of lime, citrus, barnyard funk, musty brett, and orange. It tastes tart, with lime, citrus, orange, hay, barnyard funk, musty brett, and minerals. The mouthfeel is medium light. A great Saison from Hill from Hill Farmstead.

Pours a clear, crisp light yellow / similar to Corona. Nice micro foam head that fades, minimal lacing. Has a gentle, earthy, funky aroma, grassy, citrusy. Taste is tart, some funk, citrus, a little sour on the finish. Has a bright, crisp mouthfeel, loads of micro carbonation bubbles. Overall I really enjoyed this beer, very refreshing.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a Teku glass. No visible date, the label is covered.
Appearance: First impression is that this is a Saison: slightly cloudy, golden orange body. No lacing left behind.

Aroma: Definite funk (Brett?) on the nose, peaches, a little sour/tartness to it.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Funk, straw/hay, peaches, citrus, subtle bitterness, not sure but this has an oakiness to it as well, definite HF well water taste too. Soft feel to this one and easy to drink.

Overall: Lovely looking beer with a funky aroma and delicious taste. Really refreshing and something I would definitely drink again.
