I very much enjoyed this. Uncorked like a champagne bottle. BIg foamy head, great flavors, and goes down easy. I found this to be elegant, beautiful offering. Cheers!

La Vermontoise
A-golden, opaque saison that pours a massive head that looks like the thunderstorm clouds out my window on this ungodly hot june afternoon.
S-yeasty, general saison aromas, not distinctly noticeable hops
T-Almost orange-y sweetness, maybe some coriander, very refreshing. Kind of a better than average saison, comparable to Dupont I would say.
M-malty sweetness, lingering fruity aftertaste.
O-Makes a phenomenal summer beer. Love the label and name as well. Very true to perfecting the saison style rather than experimenting with other flavors.

L- Straw-gold with a slight haze, pours with a dense white head that subsides quickly, minimal lacing

S- Light fruit, pear, apple, apricot; mild spice; hay, malty notes

T- Restrained fruity notes play across a backbone of peppery spice, spicy finish with light grainy aftertaste. Rustic and classic

F- Crisp, dry, refreshing; plenty of effervescence that adds adequate bite; dry but by no means thin

O- A fantastic, classic styled saison. Refreshing and adequately complex. I would absolutely recommend it to a friend interested in farmhouse styles.

750 ml bottle
Love this collaboration!

Massive carbonation, lively yeast. Light golden color, solid haze with a monsterous foam cap. Airy white foam, holds strong. Fat, sticky lacing.

The aroma is very classic, authentic farmhouse style. Golden wheat, spelt, Amarillo hops, funky, earthy, Belgian yeast sour notes. Smells like wet earth, hot and dry wheat and herbs.

I just love the Authentic Farmhouse style mouthfeel, light, seriously carbonated, airy, zippy and lush. Such an easy and enjoyable style.

The flavor is just straight classic Farmhouse. Spelt, golden wheat maltiness, herbal and zippy yeast along with a very effective dose of Amarillo hops that provide even more of a dry-earthy, old world style hop flavor. The balance and execution of this style here is just right on. Such an excellent collaboration!

Pours hazy golden yellow with a dense creamy frothy white foam head. Smells like apricot, lemon, white grapefruit, orange citrus, banana, clove, peppery spice, mild vanilla, funky hay, some grainy spelt, with floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like apricot, lemon, white grapefruit, orange citrus, banana, clove, peppercorn spice, mild vanilla, some funky hay, grainy spelt, with floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium bodied, creamy with moderate low carbonation. Overall a really nice and clean tasting saison.

Poured into wine glass. Super cloudy yellow, a lot of sediment at the end (it was delicious). Skunky nose that I couldn't get enough of. Nice tartness. A great example of this style. Would gladly try it again.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip- pours a hazy golden yellow color with two fingers of head, great retention, nice swathes of lacing.

Smells great- some Amarillo hops, nice and piney and floral and a good dose of funk. A little grain.

Tastes lovely just as a saison should. Good dose of Belgian funk along with a nice hop flavor and bitterness. A nice light grain profile and the spelt makes itself known towards the end.

Mouthfeel is very nice- well carbonated, light bodied. This is an awesome collaboration. You should get it if you can find it,

Found 2 of these bottles on the shelf in DeCiccos! Would have bought more but they only had 2 left :) one in the cellar - one in the belly.
Corked bottle - huge pop! Poured into HF Tulip - proper glassware.
Golden clear - almost hay color with 3 fingers of fluffy bubbly head. Huge aromas as the cork flies; grassy hay and a delicate saison aroma with a slight hop note. Taste is very classic "saison"...grainy hay, a nice slight balanced hop presence, and what I imagine is the spelt (I think im starting to tell what spelt tastes like - hint tired hands). So, deff a spelt flavor, its fluffy, rustic, classic, just so good...
its super dry and as perfect as can be for a saison.
Overall, this is simply amazing. A near perfect saison with a slight new age twist. Love it!
