750ml C&C bottle split 2 ways into HF wine stems.

This is a beer that is as rustic of a saison as it gets... This is way underrated saison here! Thanks for the share, Aaron!

Apperance: yellow bodied beer with large billowing bone white head. Good staying power and leaves spotty lace behind.

Smell: Fruity esters, yeasty, minerally, hint of wheat malt.

Taste: Exact same as the nose. Fruity esters, lots of minerals, yeasty, deep earthy notes, and a slightly sweet wheat malt. Black pepper emerges as it warms too.

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with crisp clean moderate level of carbonation. Dry finish on this beer that is a little better than semidry.

Overall: This is a really nice saison! Very rustic. I think with the Hill Farmstead name on the label of the bottle it bring expectations of a tart saison. Well this one does not have that signature Hill Farmstead tartness like most of Shawns saisons, but what it does have is a lot of rustic flavors and lots of complexity with an excellent mouthfeel. What not to enjoy about all that in a saison? I know I am a fan.

Avoided this for a long time due to the price and green bottle, but pulled the trigger based on a friend's recommendation.

Skunk wafts from the bottle once the cork pops, becoming floral and earthy with some sulfuric notes also. Lemon candy wafer aroma later on though not sweet really.

Hazy golden orange, huge billowing head of white meringue foam that rises above the rim and fluffs up to look like parfait in a glass. The foam dies down eventually, leaving spotty lace in its wake.

Herbal grassiness sidles up to a lemon rind bitterness, lightly tart and very dry in the finish. Seemingly not much Amarillo taste left, though there's sufficient hop bitterness that lingers. Very charged with carbonation, almost excessively so, it's effervescent and palate scrubbing. Seems to be a fairly classical saison, not bad though I don't think its worth the pricetag.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a hazy medium golden amber with a two finger white head with great retention and lots of lacing.Aroma of saison yeast, light citrus, cloves, apple and light stone fruit, mildly grassy. Flavor starts with light citrus, pear and peach clove; a mild caramel flavor develops then dries out to a classic saison dry grass, clove and funky wild yeast finish. Medium bodied with good peppery carbonation. Great flavor progression and pleasant moderately complex flavors. A nicely made and enjoyable saison. I've never had a Hill Farmstead beer, but this makes me look forward to trying one.
