Straw colored, a lot of a beautiful white and fluffy head. A bit of opalescence.
Pleasant and delicate smell, white flowers, camomile, a good saison yeast. Pepper. Dry.
Malty and cereal taste, again white flowers, and a good yeasty note. Pepper. Dry.
A bit of citric in the back. Peach. Good.
In the aftertaste a good spiciness, again pepper. Citrus fruits from american hops. A good amount of hop, and bitterness.
Dry finish.
Good.

A:
Opens with a bang and pours mostly bone-white head on a partially hazy, straw body. Huge soapy dollop of head. Too-good retention; sloppy, gloppy lacing. (4.25)

S:
A little citrus a little earthy stank intermingled. Vague skunkiness (or herbal hop character, or both), orange rind, weed, forest floor. (4.25)

T:
Hay, a little heft to the body (presumably the spelt), pepper, pizza dough, lightly floral. (4.25)

M:
Mediumish body with active carbonation a fluffy, quenching feel and a bone-dry finish. (4.5)

O:
Delicious saison.
It pours with a huge head that makes it a pain to pour (i dropped it .25). Very nice-looking, though. It has a funky, herbal, stanky smell that is a great blend of yeasty spice and the piney/citrus ghost of the Amarillo hops. The flavor follows suit and on the whole I feel like this one ticks about every box I have for what I like in a saison. It is a cohesive beer as far as the flavor. Just generally well put-together, refreshing and enjoyable.

Hazy sunny yellow with a tall, rocky off-white head that slowly deflates. Lovely aromatic spicy hop smells...hay, grassy herbs, faint honey, and pale grain. Spicy hay, leafy hops, dried apricot, grain, subtle yeast, minerals. Medium-light, frothy, and quite dry. Quite the tasty classic Saison.

Serious head on this one even with a slow pour. Aroma was wheat, kind of earthy, rustic for sure. Flavor had some hoppiness but mostly rustic saison flavors. Easily identifiable as Belgian.

Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a glossy yellow color with a puffy foamy white head that slid off at a sly pace. Messy lace quivered and stuck in a nice way.
The aroma pulled barnyard funk into a stiff basement to earthy character flowing into some white grapes. Mild non barrel woodiness bit at the end with some sweet herbal character to semi-floral leafy/pedals. Light "bleu cheese" effect on the back end.
The flavor had a semi-dry sweet to dry sour edged vinous character wrapping in and around the earthiness. Light aftertaste of the funk with some bright sour citrus.
The mouthfeel had a dry semi-sour to sweet sessionability about it. Carbonation felt right on par with an ABV feeling right at where the brewer had projected it to be. Texture was refined semi-creamy with just enough zip/zing to it.
Overall, what a wonderful saison brewed by a Belgian brewer with none other but Hill Farmstead. Would I have this again? Of course I would and wouldn't mind pairing with grilled swordfish steak.

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!
