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.

On-tap 11/22/2014 at Track 84 in Warwick, RI, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a short white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains wild Belgian yeast funk, light caramelized malts, some citrus and some spice.

T: The taste starts out with an estery bite of sourness that comes from the wild Belgian yeast. Then some breadiness comes in from a hearty but not too heavy malt character followed by some mild citrus and spice sweetness. The hops presence is mild but complementary and provides a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sour.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good sour representation of style, this is decent beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for a sour Saison.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Dishwater cloudy yellow. Huge white pillow of a head and excellent lacing.

Aroma: Skunked. Unfortunate as it may be. Touch of citrus fruit esters behind that though.

Flavor: Skunk is lighter on the palate thankfully. Fruit character manages to shine through.

Mouthfeel: Supper effervescent and bone dry.

Overall: Skunked, but even without that, I double this would be a world class saison I should expect from these two breweries.
