its good beer, but it doesnt taste, look, or feel much like a saison. more of a belgian pale to me, its really hoppy and the yeast just isnt there on the saison side, although again, the beer as a beer is very good. its mostly clear, thin caramel in color with a dense and tall tan head. it smells like hops first to me, without any of the saison yeast characteristics coming through. the hops are nice though, clean and fresh. hoppy taste too, maybe a little bit of a belgian yeast thing happening, but its not like saison. its clearish and clean, winey almost, with a lot of hops all the way through it. the bitterness level is mid range, but the oil of the hops stick around longer than they ever have in any beer called a saison that i have consumed. i like the beer, its awfully flavorful for its low abv, but for the style it claims to be, its missing some key elements.

Draft tulip at Endgrain.

We were served a Hexafoos and an Apostraphe at the same time, and asked the bartender which was which, as they looked very similar. This one was more pale and hazy, with a distinct Belgian IPA character.

Aroma was lightly citrusy, mild clove and typical spice for a Belgian IPA.

Creamy feel with a big citrusy taste, light spiciness and bitterness that lingered into the dry aftertaste. I wanted to drink more but Aaron kept bogarting it, will have to give it a second try in the future. Thanks to Thomas for this one!

Edit: had this again,and I think my review for Apostraphe applies here. Bright gold, faint smell and light yeast and fruit flavors. Drinkable but one dimensional.

The description of the Hexafoos is "Light-golden farmhouse ale with fruity saison yeast zang, orange citrus hop flavor and tropical fruit hop aroma." The beer poured a slightly orangish golden clear color with white head that left some lace. The scent carried citrus and slight biscuit. The taste was very tart and slightly bitter with citrus. The mouthfeel was light with good carbonation. Overall it is ok....a bit to tart for me.

ABV: 5.5% IBU: 42
