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!

Very carbonated. Poured a golden color. Very light scent of lemon, but kind of bland. Very dry taste with a champagne feel from the carbonation. Mild flavor, but pretty drinkable.

An excitable pour, lively carbonation, fluffy cap, some minuscule yeast clumps. Aroma is rather flat, just a littlr soft hay and hop vine. Taste was also somewhat bland, strong yeast accent, lacks the bouncy farmhouse flavors you find in many saisons, and the hop bite at the end doesn't improve the profile.

Dry and lemony. Surprisingly clean, just a hint of musty barnyard. Pilsner-like noble hop presence, both on the nose and palate. Not terribly complex, just really well constructed and tasty.
